Sunday, June 9th we will celebrate Pentecost.


We are asking that each person WEAR RED to remember the gift of the Holy Spirit that came to the Apostles and the new church.  Also, we are inviting you to BRING A RED GERANIUM which will be placed in our sanctuary for Worship.  After which, the geraniums will be planted outside the church building.  Pentecost takes place each year 50 days after Easter.   It is a day of celebration.   It is our time to remember the beginning of the church.

Sunday June 23rd, following the worship service – We invite you to stay to hear a speaker highlighting existing refugee and Immigrant issues both inside and outside the U.S. and here in our own community. Alishine Osman, PACRI Executive Director and founding member having spent 17 years of his life in the Dadaab Refugee Camp, one of the largest refugee camps in the world, experienced firsthand how tough it is to relocate to the United States. Alishine learned to face challenges with a new language and new culture. After experiencing issues in the workplace due to being unable to speak English well, he realized learning English as a second language was a must and decided to make the necessary resources readily available to help other immigrants coming to this country. PACRI is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving refugees and immigrants in central Pennsylvania.

The Youth will host St. Paul's Annual Yard Sale on Saturday, August 31st.  To reserve a space, contact the church office at 717-766-7931.  Each space comes with one table.  Spaces are $10 for St. Paul's members, $15 for non-members.  We will be looking for volunteers to help with the Yard Sale (help set-up on Friday, chaperone Youth, sleep-over, help in the kitchen and at the tables on Saturday).  If you would like to help, please contact Allyssa Boyer at allyssaboyer@outlook.com.


Start going through your attic, basements and garage.  Don't throw that good stuff out!  If it is clean and sellable, and you don't want it - bring it in and place it on the stage. Evenings or weekends is the best time to drop off. Or place on the table in the Youth room and let Terry in the office know and she will place on the stage when the hall is not in use. We will split what comes in between the Youth Yard Sale on Saturday August 31st and the Bazaar Flea Market on Friday October 4th.

 

You know your items better than us, if you feel an item should bring in a specific price, please put a price sticker on it.

 

NOTE:  Please no computers, monitors,  printers or TV’s. 

 

Thank you in advance for supporting both the Youth Yard Sale and the Bazaar Flea Market.
