Elders for the Month: Vaughn Hollenback & Katy Taylor

Prepare for Next Week: Exodus 20: 1-6; Luke 9: 51-62

Per Capita:  The per capita for church members for 2022 is $35.00 per member.

PDA Emergency Response to Ukraine:  As the violence in Ukraine continues, the number of people being displaced internally and fleeing to neighboring countries increases by the day.  And in the midst of the chaos, there are sibling churches and ecumenical partners who are already providing assistance with basic items for survival.  Our first priority is to provide funding to these partners on the ground.  While the scale of this crisis is new, receiving refugees from Ukraine and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe is not, which means we have trusted, established partners with the knowledge and expertise to carry out this importatnt work.  Our response will include both financial and technical assistance as the network of faith communities providing humanitarian assistance grows in the months ahead.  To donate to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance fund, mail your check to:  Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), P. O. Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA  15264-3700

COMMUNITY VBS MISSION PROJECT 

Kids age Pre-k through 6th grade are invited to VBS beginning here on Sunday, June 26th – June 30th from 6-8 pm.  Spread the word about community VBS! Our mission project for our Vacation Bible School this year is Ashburn’s Animals.  They are a non-profit animal rescue in Selinsgrove, PA, specializing in a wide variety of animals. Their 55 acre farm is home to over 150 animals with all different backgrounds. They strive to give them the best lives possible and connect them with loving, forever homes. They rely on a dedicated team of volunteers and strong community support.   We will be collecting funds for this group during our week of VBS, and our goal for the week is to try to raise $500.  However, we’d love to invite you to also be a part of this project to help the kids out as well. The group is scheduled to bring up animals to show the kids during our final night of VBS, Thursday, June 30th, at 5:30 pm.  We’d like to invite our congregation members and their families to join us as well.    To make a donation to help us raise these funds, contact Rick Schmieg.
