Missions and Service Commission is sponsoring an opportunity to serve and share with the Salvation Army. Our congregation will again ring the bell for the Red Kettle Project at the Chambersburg Sunnyway on Friday and Saturday, December 6th and December 7th beginning at 11:00 am. Look for the sign-up sheet in the Narthex and sign-up for an hour.
Drive-thru Live Nativity – Saturday, December 14th
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO PORTRAY THE CAST — ANY AGE. Sign-up sheets are in the lobby. No one has to stand in the cold for a prolonged period, but you can take a double shift if you wish. Let’s make this a church family Christmas project to bless others with the good news of Immanuel (God with us)!
Ongoing Service Opportunities
Serving Our Neighbors (S.O.N.)
For Christmas, we would like to give our neighbors $10 gift cards from Target, Wal-Mart, Giant or Aldi’s. We will collect them in marked boxes in the Narthex and BLC Lobby. Money or checks can be placed in the boxes and we can purchase the gift cards for you.
We are regularly accepting boxed and canned food donations for the Chambersburg food pantry. Please drop off items in the labeled barrels in the Narthex and Brethren Life Center. The Food Pantry currently does not need any egg cartons.
The Helping Hands Circle
The Helping Hands Circle is a group of ladies that gets together monthly to work on projects for the community. Projects that they have done in the past include knitting hats for newborns, college student care packages, making cookies for the Carlisle truck stop ministry and the prison ministry, assemble gifts for shut-ins, make blankets for those in need during the winter, etc. For more information, please contact Carol Wingert in the church office.
