June

To wrap up our current sermon series, Deeply Rooted Together, we decided to spend time together. There will be only ONE service that morning at 10:30 AM outside in the back parking lot. There will be no KidStep or CORE classes and we encourage families to worship together. Then stay after the service for Food Trucks.

July

Seeing God in the World | Sundays in July | 9 and 10:30 AM

Whether we live in Central PA or around the world, we are all centered in the gospel and part of the family of God. It's easy to focus on how the challenges from the past year impacted us personally, but there is a larger story at work, and God was not silent. We invite you to hear from several of our missionaries during July, at either 9 or 10:30 AM in the auditorium. Our missionaries will share their stories then you will have an opportunity to hang out at tables, get to know people within the church, and enjoy some food. We hope this will be a time of learning and reconnecting.


  • July 11: Larry & Lula F - Global Church Planting Trainer
  • July 18: Valerie A - Mid-Atlantic North Area Director for International Student Evangelism and Discipleship
  • July 25: Gene & Linda Wilson - ReachGlobal Church Planting Director

The Fountain | July 10 | 7 PM

If you have not been to The Fountain yet this could be the perfect opportunity. Not only do we come together in worship, but hearing people share their heart and stories at an open mic is so encouraging and refreshing. The Fountain is Saturday, July 10 at 7 PM under the tent. This is a great chance to see familiar faces or meet someone new!


Camping Trip | 6 PM July 23 to July 24 after breakfast

Let’s go camping! We’re having an overnight, outdoor camp out at Hershey Free! There will be singing around the campfire, storytelling, s’mores, a hearty breakfast, and more! Don’t have equipment? We’ll have a limited number of loaner tents and some sleeping bags. Invite your neighbors and friends along! For those of you who want to bring your camper, there will be space to park those as well. And if you’d rather just join us for the evening and sleep in your own bed that's okay too!


  • Menu: hot dogs, s'more fixings, and breakfast
  • Bring: tent, sleeping bags/mats, flashlight, bug spray (a limited number of loaner tents will be available first come/first serve)
  • Location: Grassy area below rear parking lot; RVs on rear parking lot but no utility hook-ups


If you are unable to camp this weekend but have an extra tent or sleeping bag contact Dave Hyatt or Joan Apgar.
