Opportunities to Serve
Prayerfully consider where you can serve and share the love of God with others.
The Trustees Thank You
Several repairs have been completed and the entire interior of the manse has been repainted! In addition, we had a very successful work day last Saturday. With a team of more than 15 volunteers, the house has been fully cleaned! Thank you to everyone involved over the past several weeks to get this home ready to... welcome the Lathams!
Pack the Pantry
Moving into a new home is the perfect time to clean out your cabinets, get rid of the expired boxes/cans and start fresh. Let's help Tim and Ginny restock their pantry as they settle into the Manse! Our goal is to offer them some variety!!
Here' your mission...
Take the FIRST LETTER in your LAST NAME and purchase something that can be put in the pantry; for example: Ludt - Linguine, Lentil soup, Legumes... you get the idea. All donations can be placed in the Christian Education Office (so they don't get mixed in with our Glenmoore Food Pantry donations). Just another way YOU can be a part of... Welcoming the Lathams!
Provide a Meal for the Lathams
Sign up to provide a dinner for Tim and Ginny Latham while they continue to settle in at the manse. We are looking to provide three meals a week beginning Sunday 10/21 and going through Thursday 11/15. Please consider providing a meal or gift card for Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday of those weeks. If you have questions, contact Chris Adler at 610-506-2155 or or contact your Deacon. Thank You for all your help ... Welcoming the Lathams!
