Mission Lab is an opportunity for you to help our church grow and flourish. Have you ever wanted to invite somebody to church, but didn’t know how or what to say? Misson Lab can provide you with the tools you need to initiate the type of relationships that will open doors to discipleship.
Mission Lab was created by Dan and Alison Siewert, pastors for the New Church Development in Harrisburg. Misson Lab runs for three Saturdays (March 9th, April 6th and May 4th) from 8:45am-12:45pm and if we can get at least 12 people from our congregation to sign up, Dan and Alison will run Mission Lab at Pine Street.

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols dates back to the early part of the twentieth century when the Bishop of Truro put together a simple service of biblical lessons and Christmas carols for Christmas Eve worship. Later the Bishop became Dean of the Chapel at King’s College, Cambridge, and the service was firmly established as a tradition of an English Christmas.
Since the early 1950’s the BBC World Service has broadcast this charming service around the world, and the format has been used in countless services in churches large and small. Included in this year’s service are works of John Rutter, Peter Warlock, Andrew Carter, George Guest, Richard Lakey and a host of other well-beloved carol arrangers.

This coming summer we will complete our final mission trip in our cycle of missions: international mission work. This year we will be embarking upon a trip to Haiti to serve children and adults through assisting with building projects and helping with church Bible school activities. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere and since the earthquake in 2010 has spiraled even further into poverty. We will be working through an organization called Praying Pelican Missions that has developed important mission ties with churches in Haiti.
The non-refundable deposit for registration is $100.

Sometimes it is just fun to throw a party! It is even better to throw a party which will help others. This is what our fundraising event scheduled for Friday night, October 12 at Historic Harrisburg Association hopes to achieve. The fall is a time of “harvest and gathering” to prepare for the long winter ahead. Our fundraiser will help us do just that. With proceeds from sponsorships, ticket sales, and raffles ticket purchases, DDB will be able to buy food and kitchen supplies to help us feed clients through the winter. As food prices continue to climb and client numbers continue to grow, it is imperative that we look for creative ways to fundraise. Why not have fun at the same time?
The “Share the Harvest” event will be a time for the community to come together for a common goal: to feed the hungry. Our evening will feature delicious appetizers, wine and cheese pairings, musical entertainment, art displays, raffle prizes, and most importantly, good company. In addition, we are excited to partner with Historic Harrisburg Association, another important community organization. You will love being in their grand building, a former brownstone bank building with a rich history. The space will take you back to a kinder, gentler time where buildings were works of art made in marble, fine woods, and brass.
Please mark your calendars for this special evening of community coming together to benefit those in need. I look forward to seeing you on October 12 as we work to “gather and harvest” for Downtown Daily Bread.

On Sunday, May 8, 2011, the Pine StreetWalkers will return to the Victoria and White Tail Trails in hopes of catching a glimpse of the freshly blooming Pink Lady’s Slipper. This will be a three mile loop hike with a considerable climb up a rocky trail. The pace will be as slow as the slowest walker. Wear good footwear and bring water. Of course, bring your cameras. Sorry, you may not pickthis endangered wildflower. So take plenty of photos for your mother and take them to her on this Mothers Day. Better yet, have your mother come along. We will meet at the trail head at 1 pm. Directions to the trail – take PA Route 225 north out of Dauphin (approximately 2 miles), turn right onto PA Route 325, go exactly 5 miles, the trail head parking lot is on your left. Be careful, the parking area is easy to miss as it is behind trees and just after you crest a small hill. Sign up at the Welcome Center. Why not consider car pooling from church?
Here is a link to some information about the Pink Lady’s Slipper:
