Talking about her new role, Ellen Hunt said, “I am committed to continue Pine Street’s exemplary music program during the search for a full time replacement for Tom Clark- Jones, and I anticipate many exciting worship experiences together!”
Also, Louise Poorman has agreed to conduct the bell choir this year and will contact members about those rehearsal dates.
Come, be a part of this opportunity for fellowship and learning more about our church.
Facilitators will work either with individuals or with very small groups of adult learners in a tutoring environment and will help the students in mastering basic concepts and skills in mathematics, language arts, reading comprehension and computer literacy. Formal teaching experience is not required.
A luncheon meeting for all ALC Learning Facilitators – including new recruits — will be held on Sunday, September 7th immediately after the 11am worship service in the Fellowship Hall. Please indicate your interest in getting actively involved in this exciting new mission project at Pine Street by adding your name to the sign-up sheet at the Welcome Center and then planning to attend the organizational meeting on Sunday, September 7th. If you have questions, please contact Kathleen White. Her contact information is available in the church directory which is located in the member’s section.

Volunteers will be asked occasionally to prepare and deliver a meal to those in need of some food assistance. The volunteers will be called on a rotating basis. Meals do not have to be elaborate. Those who benefit from this service will be called to arrange for convenient delivery times.
If you have any questions, or would like to be a volunteer, please sign up in the Gathering Place or call Sondra Fertig.
This is very rewarding, not only to the recipient, but also to the volunteers. Please consider being part of our team. Thank you.
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 worshipers 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 Cheryl Goode at (717) 238-9304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteering starts at DDB at 12:15pm (or after 11am service), and includes donning an apron, and working with DDB’s energetic staff for 90 minutes. It is a worthwhile experience.

Please give your contact information to Cheryl Goode at email@example.com or (717) 238-9304 or John H. Jewett on Facebook.
Any member who needs help with minor work inside or outside their home may sign up to receive helping hands from the mission committee. Members are required to pay for any supplies needed. Please sign up at the Welcome Center.
Any persons willing to provide the hands to complete the labor required for our members may sign up at the Welcome Center also. If you would like to participate in the Helping Hands Ministry, contact Cheryl Goode at (717) 238-9304 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Food Pantry is located at the Lutheran Church on the corner of Forster and 6th Streets. Delivery takes only 15 to 30 minutes – gather the items from the food barrel into your vehicle, call the pantry to tell someone you are making a delivery, drive to the pantry and unload the items from your vehicle. Ideally, several members of Pine Street will volunteer to do this and the effort can be shared month to month.
With so many more people using the pantry every day, this is an extremely important mission of Pine Street Church. If you are interested in knowing more, call Debbie Olson. Her contact information is located in the church directory. We’re not asking you for more money – just some of your time.
