Heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Kathryn Kehs, who passed away on Friday, August 19, 2016, at the Community at Rockhill. Kathryn is survived by her three daughters, Beverly Kehs and her partner Lynn Fillman, Judith Kehs Much and her husband David, and Janice Kehs Hunsburger and her husband, John; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; and four great great grandchildren; as well as two sisters, Ruth Godshall Clemens and Esther Godshall Markley. Let us surround this family with our prayerful and love-filled comfort.
Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Kathryn’s Life to be held at 11:00 AM followed by lunch and fellowship on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at Pennridge Community Center.
A great big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to our two summer collections for FISH. In June and July we collected items for the Kid’s Summer Lunch Program which helped families who had children who normally would receive subsidized lunches during the school year. In the summer, the kid’s are home or at other caregivers and need lunches which add to the food needs each work. St. Paul’s collected 206.1 pounds of food that was designated for the extra bags given to those families in need. Awesome job! Then in August we participated in gathering School Supplies and Backpacks that are distributed out to FISH families prior to the start of school. My car’s trunk was packed! I can always count on our members to come through with these collections and show how it is better to give than to receive. Another terrific job!!
We had a blast as we dove into fun and adventure at Deep Sea Discovery VBS last week. Sixteen children from St. Paul’s attended — what a great turnout! Throughout the week, we collected an offering to support a clean water project through Samaritan’s Purse. After five days, we raised $476.74. Awesome job, kids!! A special thanks to our partner church, St. Andrew’s, for hosting a fun-filled week!
This Sunday, July 31st, we will have guest preacher Jamie Moyer with us and we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Please join us for Worship at 9:00 am upstairs in the Sanctuary, weather permitting.
Deep Sea Discovery VBS is in full swing. Check out the awesome decorations and all the fun we’ve been having!
