Book Drive 

We are seeking books for students in grades K-5. There is also a teacher’s current need for books for a K-2 Autistic Support classroom in the age range of K-2. Board books would be especially helpful. She can also use building toys; Legos, K’Nex, and blocks. Again, thank you for your support. The children in Philadelphia’s public schools thank you.

If you would like to volunteer to help with Sunday coffee hour donations, be sure to see the new hospitality sign up sheet to help with Sunday hospitality posted outside the Parish Hall. For all of you who have helped in the past, many thanks to you! All are welcome to participate.

Volunteers – Hospitality Needs You! 

There is a new sign up sheet posted on the bulletin board. Please pick a Sunday as volunteers are needed to help with hospitality. You can choose either the 8 am or 10 am coffee hour slot on Sundays. Also, two people can sign up for the same Sunday if you’d like to provide snacks or beverages, this way its easier for both volunteers. Let’s all pitch in a Sunday!
