Message from Mid PA District’s Brethren Disaster Ministries: We are in need of new people to become involved with our Brethren Disaster Ministries meetings. We meet the second Monday of every month at the 28th Street Church of the Brethren in Altoona at 7 pm. We would like to have more churches become involved in our meetings. There are 55 churches within our district. We hope you will come participate with us. Remember, it's not just about raising money for our project trips out of town. We are doing more and more local projects all the time. If there is anyone willing to come join us, please contact Juls Bratton, Brethren Disaster Ministries Secretary, at 814.932.4040 or via email at email@example.com.
Join us for "Lunch-Out" on Sunday, October 26 at Hoss’s in Duncansville for a "Dutch-treat" lunch following Sunday School sessions (ending at 11:30). Please sign the sheet on the long table in the narthex or contact the church office with your reservation.
Soup and Sandwich Luncheon
The Youth will serve a Soup and Sandwich Luncheon on Nov. 9th following Sunday School. Donations collected will go to the National Youth Conference Fund. Come, enjoy the fellowship of one another!
The American Rescue Workers’ truck will be in the church parking lot on on the first Saturday of each month, except winter months. NOT IN NOVEMBER. THIS SERVICE WILL RESUME IN THE SPRING.
This is a great way to donate clothing items and non-perishable foods. (No household furnishings.)
To help: Contact Keith Eldred or the church office.
"And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best" (Philippians 1:9-10a).
The Youth are selling patriotic wreaths for $15 each. They are handmade by our very own youth members! All proceeds will go to pay for the gaga ball pit coming to our parking lot in the near future! We have many more to make, so place your order with Rita Murphy today. (You may send an email request to the church.) Thanks for your support
