Presbyterian Church Collecting Backpacks, School Supplies

Pastor James Shanley, pastor, Presbyterian Church of Mountain Top, 9 Chestnut Street, just off North Main St., invites you to worship Sunday, July 31, at 10:30am.

Pastor Shanley will continue his sermon series on the Apostles Creed with Descended into Hell.

Children’s Church will also be discontinued for the summer months. During communion there will not be a Children’s Sermon, children are invited to stay with their parents or if heading to the nursery check on available supervision.

The church is collecting backpacks and school supplies for the less fortunate. Please have all donations at the church by August 14. There is also the opportunity to support Ruth’s Place by either signing up as a corporate sponsor at levels from $100 to $1000, or sponsoring the walking team for Ruth’s Place Walk for Hope on Oct. 2. Information is available in the Narthex.

Please continue to donate your food items weekly to be given to the Mountain Top food bank. Bins are located at the rear of the Sanctuary. The need is great for packaged items, mayonnaise, coffee and sugar and peanut butter. There is a special need for pork & beans, canned tomatoes and red beets.

We thank the Choir for their Ministry during the church year and look forward to the return of their songs of praise in September. During the summer months worship will be led by Bill Blannett with occasional special music.

Please continue to pray for our country. It is especially important in this election year. Pray-Votepray!
