Help support local food cupboards!
The Mission Team is sponsoring a toiletry drive through June 18th. The cupboards are in need of shampoo, body wash, deodorant, tooth brushes and tooth paste. Items can be dropped offin the box in the hallway across from the church office.  Please contact Marylouise Still at 215-680-3308 or mlstill56@gmail.com with any questions. Thank you!

Grace Place
Come to Grace Place on June 16th and ring color-coded hand bells under the instruction of Jenifer Eyre.  Play along to songs of old, as Jen holds up color-coded cards indicating when you play your hand bell.  It's super easy and way fun!  No music experience necessary.

On Friday, June 30th we will have a wonderful program with Melissa Dreisbach.  Melissa will entertain the group by playing musical selections on her flute.  Bring your friends, and join us for this treat.  The program begins at 12:45 pm following lunch at 12:00 pm.
