Presbyterian Church Collecting Backpacks, School Supplies

Rev. James Shanley, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Mountain Top, invites you to join in worship Sunday, August 6.

The Worship Service begins at 10:30a.m. The Sermon, WHEN GOD SHOWS UP will be presented by Pastor Shanley. The sacrament of Communion will be shared.

BACKPACK time is here. A donation bin is in the rear of the church for backpacks and school supplies for needy children in the Wilkes-Barre area. $5 donations will also be accepted to purchase backpacks at 5 Below. See Pam Zaprazny for details.

Presbytery is holding a Whisper Sabbath gathering at beautiful Camp Lackawanna on Sat., August 26th from 9am to 5pm. Join fellow seekers for a day of silence, stillness, discussion and activities. Lunch is included in the $10 registration fee, and reservations must be made by August 4. See the bulletin insert or contact the church office for applications and information.

Church Picnic! Come and join the fellowship and fun after the worship on August 27th. Bring your favorite covered dish to share, and kids (big and little) be prepared to get wet!

2017 dates to purchase bulletin covers to honor or recognize someone are now available. A month’s supply of bulletin covers is $35. If there is a certain month you would like to purchase check with the office for availability.

Flowers are also available to purchase for $35 for the vases or a special arrangement for the pedestal. Contact Allison Pekar to schedule flowers or call the church office.

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. Rice, carrots and red beets are also needed.

Although the National Day of Prayer is over, the need for prayer is not. Please continue to pray for the president and country! Also continue to pray for our military families and those serving in all branches of the armed forces. If you want a name of your friend or family member added to our prayer list, contact the church offices. Service members are prayed for by name every Sunday!
