WINTER HELP FOR ANIMALS: DONATIONS NEEDED!

Every Winter we have so many animals in our area pass away due to the cold weather or not having any shelter. This year, I would like to change that. If you have old blankets, boxes, etc. please leave them at the church so we can make small shelters for the animals. We will leave these shelters around parks under trees and bushes to give these animals a warm home during Winter. Let’s help animals survive this year, because they cannot do it without us.

CHURCH CLEANING HELPERS NEEDED

Our Trustees have been using volunteers for our weekly church cleaning. Its important to keep our church clean and nice for our community and all of our church goers. We need a few extra volunteers to help with this cleaning service. Remember, many hands make light work! Consider volunteering your time to keep our facilities and church clean. Please contact the church office if you can help. You can call the Church Office at (570.366.0201) or [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your help!
