SEAFARERS It is time to think about the 2019 Seafarers Christmas collection. We ask for your response in January, in hopes you will take advantage of the after Christmas sales to purchase sweat shirts, t-shirts, and socks. There will be a table in the back of the church with a box underneath to place your donations. Remember, heavy sweatshirts with or without a hood in sizes large or extra large, T-shirts in sizes medium or large, and 3 pair of heavy white socks. The Seafarers like the shirts and sweat shirts with racing car drivers or sports teams. Thanks for your support and have a blessed 2019.
2019 OFFERING ENVELOPES may be picked up in the back of the nave. Please note, your offering envelope number may have changed, so please look for your name, not your number. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
ALTAR FLOWERS If you are interested in sponsoring Altar flowers in memory/honor of someone, please call Becky Lewis at 570-321-6235. She will coordinate with you the Sunday of your choice, and what you would like to have put in the bulletin. The cost is $50 for the pair of altar flowers. Pulpit flowers are also available. The cost for the single bouquet of pulpit flowers is $35.
MINISTRY SITE PROFILE As part of our preparation for the Call Process we are asking members of our congregation to complete 2 surveys, the results of which will become an integral part of our Ministry Site Profile. The Ministry Site Profile is a more extensive document that will be posted online for prospective candidates. Survey forms are available in the back of the nave. Please complete one if you have not already done so.
