OCTOBER SERMON SERIES:
This Sunday, October 28, 2018, is “CDC Sunday” – a time to celebrate the work of the Child Development Center and recognize its staff and families during our worship gathering. I expect many children and staff from our Child Development Center to join us for worship next Sunday, and we will even get to hear the children sing! There will be opportunities to view children’s artwork in our hallways, meet some staff members, and enjoy light refreshments as well. Plan to take some time, before or after our worship service, to walk the halls and become acquainted with those involved in the CDC program. Thank you to all who guide and support the CDC, and thanks be to God that we are able to serve so many children in this place.

CONTACTING THE PASTOR: Pastor Joel can be reached most mornings in the church office Monday—Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Afternoons and evenings are set aside for visiting those in need, for meetings, and for other pastoral duties. Pastor Joel is also available for Pastoral Counseling by appointment. If you need to reach the pastor outside of office hours, his home phone number is (717) 318-5442, and his cell number is (717) 271-4888 . You can also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. By the way, HIPAA laws prevent the hospital from contacting the pastor when you are admitted, so you will need to let hospital staff know that you would like the hospital to contact your pastor.
