Adult Forums

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, one of the decisive movements in Christian history. The Rev. Dr. David True, Professor of Religion at Wilson College, will teach a series on this monumental event of Western civilization, Three Keys of Reformed Faith, on the following Sundays:

August 6 – Reforming Worship

The Protestant Reformation is sometimes said to boil down to a debate about the sacraments. We’ll consider the different viewpoints and what they suggest for us today.

August 13 – Reforming the Life of Faith

We’ll revisit the Reformation’s startling consequences for the shape and content of the Christian life.

August 20 – Reforming Society

We’ll consider the different visions of society and politics that emerged in the Reformation and their relevance today.

August 13

Summer Sing Choir

A choir for every singer in the church. We will gather at 9:15 a.m. in the choir room, first on July 9 and then again on August 13. We will learn two simple songs that need no prior preparation. No sign-ups are necessary. Join us!

Let’s rally back to church school on September 10! Plan also to attend the “ants-free” picnic in the fellowship hall following worship. No sign-up required; just show up with an appetite! Take home with you the education brochure that the deacons are distributing this morning

Welcome

Downtown Daily Bread serves the hungry and homeless of Harrisburg, providing a daily lunch, counseling services, showers, lockers, mail delivery, and a safe and secure environment to rest and access a variety of other assistance. Lunch is served from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. every day, and other services are available on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Downtown Daily Bread is a ministry of Pine Street Presbyterian Church and has been operating for more than 30 years..

We Operate under the belief that...

No one should go hungry. Addressing basic needs is the first step in lifting our clients out of homelessness.

That it is not enough only to address basic needs, but it is also necessary to build personal relationships with clients in order to connect them to community services to break the cycle of poverty.

That assessing needs and giving clients education, emotional support, and access to county, medical, and housing assistance will improve the quality of their lives.

That it is not enough only to address basic needs, but it is also necessary to build personal relationships with clients in order to connect them to community services to break the cycle of poverty.

Our Programs

1

Lunch

12:30 p.m.– 1:30 p.m. Daily

A hot lunch is served every day of the year to the hungry and homeless. Our cooks prepare the meal and teams of volunteers assist to serve it. Most food is purchased, but donations are always welcome. Our clients enjoy the generosity of those who bake cakes to those who send in the harvests from their gardens.

2

Client Assistance

9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Weekdays

In addition to lunch, clients can access services during the morning hours, including lockers, mail delivery, transportation assistance, showers, phone, clothing, laundry tokens, and food vouchers, among others. In the afternoons, clients can participate in life skills classes.

3

Counseling Services

Counselors are available as a means to connect with mainstream assistance, including county, medical, career, and housing. A mental health outreach counselor works in the field in an effort to build relationships, encouraging the mentally ill and those with addictions to come to Downtown Daily Bread in order to access needed services.

4

Drop-in-Center

8:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
1:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday

A warm and welcoming environment is available on weekdays for our clients to rest, relax, connect with services, and be in fellowship with each other. The Drop-in-Center is a safe and secure space, a shelter from the outdoors and from the streets, a respite for our homeless clients.
