Snacks for Sunday

If you (or a group of you) would like to sign up to bring snacks for some Sunday, that would be great.  There's a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.  We're also accepting packs of cookies or other snacks that can be stored for Sundays when no one is signed up.  Snacks don't need to be anything elaborate, just something to munch on with or without coffee.

Music for Summer

Please consider signing, playing or reading something special for summer worships. All ages are welcome!  Kindly sign up on the bulletin board.  Any questions, see Barbara.

Preaching for the Summer

We will continue our summer sermon series with the following Dr. Seuss stories:

July 7 - Hop on Pop


July 28 - Fox in Sox

August 4 - Are You My Mother?

Don't worry, all the sermons will have a theological basis, just using Dr. Seuss stories as illustrations.  Feel free to read the stories to your children ahead of time, or just reread them yourself!

We already have the hot dogs and rolls.  Please sign up on the bulletin board if you are coming and what you'll be bringing and how many.  THERE WILL BE NO WORSHIP SERVICE HERE THAT DAY.

July 21 - Evening with the Fightin' Phils

We are planning an Evening with the Fightin' Phils Sunday, July 21 at FirstEnergy Stadium.  Sign up on the bulletin board by July 7th if you would like to join us.  Tickets are $8 if there are less than 20 people signed up, $7 if there are more than 20.  We will be sitting in the green section behind home plate.  For more information, contact Carla 815-621-7299 or

July 28 - Coffee and Conversation

The next Coffee and Conversation will be July 28 after worship, and the topic will be Abortion.  This is going to be a Conversation, and there's a good chance there will be folks with differing opinions, so if this is one of those topics where discussion is just too upsetting for you, you'd probably be better off skipping this one.


Youth Readers Needed

We'd like to involve the children more in worship by having them read the Prayer of the Day before the Children's Sermon.  If your child would like to read, please sign up on the bulletin board in the narthex.

Backpack Program

The Brandywine School District is starting a program to send home backpacks of food over the weekend for children in the free and reduced meal program. We've been asked to provide individual MICROWAVALBE servings of spaghetti and meatballs (microwavable 7.5 oz cups), mac and cheese (microwavable cups) and individual soups (microwavable, any variety).  Powdered milk, oatmeal cups and individual cereal cup are also being collected. The brand is not important, just the size and the micorwavableness.  No child should be hungry, and this is one way to help.  Thanks!


We have been given an updated list of items needed to pack backpacks for next month:

Microwavable vegetables (single serving)

Snack Pack pudding

Tuna packets

Canned meat  (single serving)

Chicken Rice a Roni

Mac and Cheese (single serving)

Soup (single serving)

Fruit snacks

Cereal boxes (single serving)

Horizon 8 fl. oz. milk

Snack crackers


Thank you for your continued support of this program!
