Worship Assistants

Worship Assistants are children, youth and adults who assist in Sunday services by serving as Crucifer, Beadle. Each of these important tasks is an opportunity to serve in leadership in our worship.

If you would like to volunteer as a Worship Assistant, please contact Russell Sullivan at

Bread Ministry

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; those who come to me shall not hunger, and those who believe in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

Since 2006, members of the Bread Ministry have been baking sweetbread and giving it to each first-time visitor to Pine Street Presbyterian. Bread is distributed after each Sunday worship service.

If you would like to serve in the Bread Ministry, please contact the office at 717-238-9304.

Flower Ministry

Each week members or friends of Pine Street Church sponsor flowers that grace the sanctuary for our Sunday morning worship services.  These flowers are given either in memory of loved ones or in honor of a living member or friend of Pine Street Church.   Following the 10:00 a.m. service, a volunteer delivers the flowers and a service bulletin from that day’s service to a member who is hospitalized or is part of the Home Department.  Persons who are interested in sponsoring flowers for Sunday morning worship services please enter your information below.

Shawl Ministry

Calling all knitters! If you like to loop, hook, purl or popcorn, come join the Shawl Ministry on the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. Our members range in age from 11 to 80-something.

The Shawl Ministry knits shawls for those who need a bit of warmth and comfort. Members of the Shawl Ministry pray over each shawl, asking that the one using the shawl will feel the love of Christ.

Shawls are available for worshippers to use each Sunday. You can pick up a shawl in the Narthex and on the pew running along the side of the church near the Lectern.  At the end of the service, please leave the shawl at the end of the pew and a member of the ministry will pick it up for laundering.

Shawls are also distributed to shut-ins and members who are ill.

For more information, contact the office at (717) 238-9304.

 Congregational Care Meal Program

Pine Street Presbyterian’s Congregational Care Team has a heart for taking care of the individuals and families of our church. One way they do this is through the Congregational Care Meal Program.

Team members make and deliver four meals to individuals returning home after a hospital stay. Volunteers serve on a rotating basis.

If you enjoy making meals and visiting others, and would like to volunteer in this important ministry, please enter your information below.
