Compassion Sunday

Compassion Sunday is January 27th during our morning worship time. You can help change a child’s life now and for eternity. Come and hear how Compassion International has made a difference in the lives of children around the world and how you can help make that difference in a child’s life. Invite your neighbors, too.

Ladies Fellowship Group

The ladies fellowship group has placed hearts on the tree in the Narthex. We want to present valentine gifts for our homebound members. So if you would like to help, please take a heart, purchase items and place in container provided. We’ll be making up the gift bags at our January 21st meeting. Thanks for your support helping to remember our homebound.

Cleaning Buckets Needed!

Because of the widespread flooding that we are reviving throughout Southern Pennsylvania, the Eastbrook Mission Barn has exhausted their cleaning bucket inventory. We are being asked to help with the effort to help raise 100 buckets in the Johnstown District. The cost of building a bucket is $75. would you please consider contributing to help raise the funds needed to get the buckets that will help those who really need them. Place your donation for cleaning buckets in an envelope and mark the gift *CLEANING BUCKETS* and place it in the offering plate. This is a great way to show people in need how much you really care. After all, you never know when  you might need such a valuable outreach ministry.

Children Needed

Anyone 10 years of age and older who is interested in learning sound and power point come on back and talk with Dustin
