In addition to our normal worship services, there are children and adult Sunday School classes, St. Paul’s Preschool, pantry, and so much more. There is a wide variety of Fellowship activities. We serve the York community, our sister congregation in Mpuguso, Tanzania and the LWR.

News

You have all been patiently waiting for the new church pictorial directory and it is now available on your computer.  Patee has sent a new directory to your email address on file.  Please see Patee or call the office (717) 843-8155 if you would like a printed copy or have any questions.  Any corrections/changes to the directory can be given to her.  New photos can be added at any time.

The Mpuguso Committee would like to thank all that baked and purchased desserts/made donations for Desserts for Mom to Benefit Mission Trip.  The fund raising efforts were for the purpose of providing financial support to offset the costs to the Mpuguso congregation and the Konde Diocese while our 24 mission travelers are there in June and a huge success.  .

Sunday School Sessions will be taking a break for the summer and start up again in September. 

Beginning June 11, on Tuesdays,5:30-7:30 p.m., we will gather to nurture faithful stewardship families with a simple supper at 5:30 followed by music and songs followed by the evening’s theme, participate in an activity specific to the theme, summarize the evening and have a closing prayer.  The first 9 sessions will be held at St. Paul’s and the last one, August 13, will be Picnic at Kain Park (entire congregation invited).  Additional information can be found in the Newsletter.   

Photos from:  Confirmation 2024,  “Lazarus, Come Out!”, Preschool Sunday, Second Sandwiches 4/14/24, Easter Sunday, Holy Saturday/Vigil of Easter, Good Friday,  Maundy Thursday, Palm Sunday and Reception of New Members, Second Sunday Sandwiches 3/10/24, Ash Wednesday/Valentine’s Senior Luncheon, Second Sunday Sandwiches 2/11/24, Valentine’s Dinner for Young Adults and Children’s Valentine’s Dinner/Party, PreSchool have been loaded to St. Paul’s Gallery and the Slideshow has been updated and the most recent pictures from Mpuguso are shown on that page.  Click here Gallery

Change in Food Pantry Distribution Schedule – Beginning, Tuesday, 1/2/24, the Food Pantry will serve shoppers twice per month.  This change has to do with the growing numbers of people coming to the pantry, the amount of room in the pantry, our volunteer staff, and our limited amount of space for parking.  When there are 5 Tuesdays in a month, we will be closed the 5th Tuesday.

Webpage Calendars – We now have two calendars for viewing on our webpage.  The Calendar tab on the homepage at the top of the page is the monthly calendar you receive with your monthly “Our Church” newsletter and now in the footer at the bottom of the page, there is a weekly calendar.  The problem we were having was updates were done during the month to the events calendar but our monthly calendar was not being updated.  The weekly calendar will reflect any changes made and the footer with the weekly calendar can be viewed from any page on our webpage.  All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of any page and click on the weekly calendar and scroll down on the calendar to view for the whole week.  Hope this will be helpful!

“Vintage” Members with birthdays in May are:  Norma Spencer, Larry Gross, Doris Riese, Ron Sturges and Jean Owen.  Many happy Birthday wishes to all from your family at St. Paul’s.

Bible Study is held on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 in Christ Hall.
