You don’t need a special reason to give blood.  You just need your own reason.

Ÿ Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend.

Ÿ Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day.

Ÿ Some believe it is the right thing we do.

Whatever your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life.

On the last weekend of April, Pastor Josh and some of the high school leaders are taking the upperclassmen from CrossPoint Church on a mystery retreat out of state! This is going to be a very special weekend in that they haven’t done this since 2011! We’ve got an amazing group of 25 participating! The purpose for this weekend is two-fold: We celebrate and challenge the seniors as they’re beginning their next season of life to hold onto Christ for their calling and purpose while we raise up the next class to be the bold leaders we expect them to be (1 Timothy 4:12). Being that we’re going out of state and the game plan is filled with amazing sights, events and eateries, if you’d love to sponsor a student on this event, please let us know, as this will greatly help us make this event one that our group will never forget! Feel free to shoot Pastor Josh an email at or call him at (717) 903-2075


Missions helps people understand the worldwide mission of sharing Jesus Christ. You will explore what your calling is, what it means to be in mission, and experience the impact of outreach in our community and throughout the world by people who are currently heeding God’s call.  Come join us for an exciting journey into the mission field.  Presented by THE MISSION MAN, our own Ken “Mission Man” Mengel April 30, May 7, 14, 21 6:30-7:30 p.m., @ Colonial Park, in Room 207.



Our UM Women LifeGroup is hosting the New Life for Girls Choir on Saturday, May 10th @ Rutherford.  The evening will begin with a covered dish social downstairs at 6:00 p.m. followed with a program by the New Life for Girls Choir in the Sanctuary which will include song, testimony, and praise dance at 7:00 p.m.  If you plan to attend the covered dish social, please sign up on the Communication Card by May 4th.  There will be a free will offering taken to offset the choir’s expenses and support this ministry.



Are you working with Children or Youth?  Are you a Group or Class Leader?

Safe Sanctuaries Training and a Background Check are a must for you.  The next class for all campuses will be @ Colonial Park, Room 207; 6:30-7:30 on Thursday, May 15.  Please sign up on the Communication Card or call the office 545-1911, so that we have enough materials. A donation of $10 is requested but not required to cover costs.



LifeGroup Leaders and Teachers, and anyone pursuing leadership (of any age) are invited to join the discussion!  Leading small groups of people is a calling as important, but different, from being a pastor.  This series of meetings will be a combination of discussion, self-evaluation, group evaluation, and Bible study.  Each session will be independent of others, loosely based on The Christian Small-Group Leader by Thomas Hawkins and Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders. Come to as many as you can.  Led by Helen Patrick.

May 31st(not Memorial Day weekend!):8:30 a.m. at the home of Teresa Kurtz.  Subject:: To Meet or Not to Meet andEvaluation.
