Sunday, January 21st - A Busy Sunday!

On Sunday, January 21st, we will begin with Worship Services at 10:45 a.m.  After Services have ended, there will be a short Congregational Meeting where the congregation will receive the Annual Report, approve the Terms of Call for the Pastor, and elect two (2) representatives from the congregation to the Nominating Committee.

Once the Congregational Meeting has concluded, everyone who wishes to, will retire to Gehman Hall  for the Annual PW Soup Luncheon.  All donations taken during the Soup Luncheon benefits the Backpack Program for area school children.  The Public School Backpack program provides food items during the weekend to students in need.  Please make your plans to join us and enjoy a variety of soups and desserts.  If you would like to provide a crockpot of soup or a dessert, contact Judy Crumrine.
