Coffee set up for the Link in 2018 Are you looking to serve at the church, but not quite sure what you would like to do? How about signing the list to help set up the coffee in the Link on a Sunday morning. At this time we have five faithful servers, but we are looking to add to this group. We usually sign up for a month at a time (someone is always willing to change for a week or two, if needed). You can set up the coffee the night before and finish up with the cookies, cold drinks and pretzels on Sunday morning, if you like. Or you can come in early on Sunday morning. This takes about 25 to 30 minutes. Please consider joining our group. You can contact Judy Heath, Pauline Habegger, or Jean Bonneville with any questions. We would like to set the calendar for the year by the end of this December. Thanks Jean Bonneville 717-272-8263 – home number Jlb001@comcast.net - email 717-507-6023 – text or cell phone.

We are blessed to have so many with servants’ hearts. We recently had an informational meeting regarding the possibility of doing two mission trips this year. Sixteen people showed up for this meeting and a number of others notified me of their interest, but said they were unable to attend the meeting. Out of those people, 17 are planning to go to West Virginia and 13 are planning to go to Florida. Six are planning to go to BOTH! Please pray for all those who are planning to go on the trip as well those whom we are going to help.
