Around the Church for March 2, 2022

Ash Wednesday Service Tonight!
We will hold a traditional Ash Wednesday service this evening at 7pm. The service will be in person. A recorded version will not be available on our website or Facebook until after the service is completed. Please come out and join us as we corporately focus on penitence, and prepare our hearts for the upcoming Lenten season.

Report from the Pine Street Walkers
Two dogs joined six people for a walk last Sunday at Adam’s Ricci Park in Enola. A wonderful time, brisk time was had by all. Pine Street’s Walker next trek is on Sunday, March 21.
Lenten Breakfast THIS SUNDAY 8:45 am
The Lenten Breakfast is this Sunday. Two of our favorite cooks, Mike and Suzanne Hogarth, will be whipping up light and fluffy pancakes, savory sausage, and yummy fruit compote. If you have not yet signed up, please call the church office to register. A donation will be taken at the breakfast to help cover the cost.

Pine Street Goes Wild THIS SUNDAY!
Pine Street has been accepted as a participant in the Art in the Wild-Outdoor Environmental Art Exhibit at Wildwood Park for 2022! Art installations will be along the walking trail from April 3 to Sept 30, 2022. The overall theme is ” Sunlight and Shadows. Pine Street’s art work will involve making wind chimes and mobiles out of natural materials.

Bring your” found treasures” (Natural Materials such as : Pine cones, Feathers, interesting pieces of branches, twigs, sea shells, dead grapevine or other dead woody vines) to church this Sunday and plan to stay after church to help string together some of these items. There might be some painting involved so bring clothing that can get a little messy.

Our Title is: ” Shimmering Sunlight and Soft Shadow Sounds”

Be a part of Creating Something Together…and we don’t exactly know how it will end up…. it is a creative work in progress. Just Like Us!
