GOAL: To explore membership and faith at Pine Street
TIME AND PLACE: Sunday, September 28 from 9:40am to 10:40am at Pine Street – The first class was held Sunday, September 21. If you still are interested, email Pastor Russell Sullivan at email@example.com.
WHO’S INVITED: All who are interested in exploring membership or learning more about the Christian faith and the Presbyterian way!
Pastor Russell Sullivan will be teaching this class which will give you the basics about Christian faith and church membership and introduce you to the vision that is taking shape at Pine Street.
Everyone who has ever played an instrument is welcome to participate. The focus is on fun, not virtuosity!
Rehearsals will be once a month starting September 28 right after the 11am service. Steve Hartman, a Pine Street member, will lead the group.
This will be a wonderful way for Pine Streeters of all ages to connect over a shared love of music and a great reason to invite family and friends to share in Christmas at Pine Street.
Questions? See Sue Black or Steve Hartman.
Rev. Heather Sigler and Commissioned Ruling Elder Craig Kegerise will lead this study which requires prayer and reading each day. Sign up now at the Welcome Center and order your participant guide.
In the past, we assembled emergency kits that can be used in anticipation of national and international disaster. The most well-known program at Mission Central is UMCOR, United Methodist Committee on Relief. We helped prepare flood buckets and school bags to be used by children.
Sign up at the Welcome Center for this worthwhile ministry.
Pine Street once again will participate in the annual “clean-up day” at Krislund Camp and Conference Center on Saturday, October 4th. The Carlisle Presbytery, along with two other presbyteries, utilize Camp Krislund for summer youth programs and year-round adult retreat events. This is a Presbytery-wide project where many hands make light work.
We have participated in this event in the past and enjoyed the camaraderie of our members, friends from other congregations and the fabulous fall foliage. The work day will start at 8am and go to 1pm. Lunch will be served.
The projects will be:
• generic cleanup around the cabins and buildings,
• the “biggie” is re-staining the cabins and
• helping to winterize the camp for the winter.
Anyone who wants to do specific work can bring:
• paint brushes ( buckets or trays ),
• work gloves,
• rakes, trimmers, shovels, hoes and
• anything you might want to use outdoors in the Fall.
Krisland has cabins for those wishing to arrive Friday to stay overnight. Call 814-422-8878 or 814 – 571 – 8896 to make arrangements for an overnight stay. Sign up at the Welcome Center in the Gathering Place to make arrangements for carpooling for Saturday morning.
Check out the Krislund website for directions and more information about the camp: http://krislund.org/.
This year’s theme will be “Engaging God’s World.” Pastor Sullivan will teach on the topic of “God’s Mission to the World!”

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 help in one or two ways: 1) Join a specific group on an assigned Sunday in 2014 (See dates posted in Gathering Place); 2) Sign- up as a volunteer substitute. 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.
