All Member’s Meeting this Sunday
During our second hour, while the children and youth ministries are going on, we will have a quarterly member’s meeting. We will be discussing the transition of Ray Kulbeda as a part-time assistant pastor, updates on various projects around the building, upcoming classes and much more. We ask that each member try to make it a priority to attend.
SALT (50+) Date Change
My taste buds are watering already just thinking about the upcoming Amish Dinner! The date of our fourth annual Amish Dinner has changed, and will be on Saturday, September 28th at 5 pm. If you have never eaten in an Amish home you won't want to miss this opportunity. Lydia & Levi Stoltzfus put out an amazing spread of delicious homegrown, homemade Amish food. Believe me, you won't walk away hungry! Last year Levi shared their Amish customs & traditions with us; this year we plan to share our Christian beliefs with them. The cost is $13 in cash given to Sharon prior to, or on the night of the dinner. RSVP by Saturday, September 21st to Sharon at email@example.com.
Men’s Encounter Weekend
Men, please join us Sept. 27-29 for a weekend to get away from the stress, distractions, and weariness of everyday life in an environment where we are more likely to hear from God and encounter His presence. The goal is to grow into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and walk in the freedom God desires for your life as a man of God. Registration is $100. The weekend starts Friday evening at Perkiomenville Mennonite before leaving for the campgrounds in the Hereford area. For more information contact Jake Hallman at firstname.lastname@example.org, or log on to https://mensencounterpa.org.
Monday Night Equipping You Classes Coming Soon
Starting on September 23rd we will be running six weeks of classes on Monday nights from 7-8:30 pm. There will be childcare, but we need you to sign up in advance. The topics are Financial Peace and The Biblical View on Suffering. Contact Pastor John to sign up yourself, your kids, or if you have questions at email@example.com.
Fall Fest at New Gosh Park
We are very excited about our annual Fall Fest on Sat, Oct 12 from 4-6 PM. We have lots of fun planned! Many volunteers are needed to help make homemade pies, or to help at the fest on one of two shifts: 3:30 to 5 pm or 5 to 6:30 pm (or both if you prefer). Please sign up here to volunteer to help with this community outreach event. We will get back to you with what type of help we will need from you (games, crafts or food). Plan to invite your family, friends and neighbors--all are welcome! We will not have 2nd hour the day after Fall Fest, on Sunday the 14th.

Meals Help Needed
We have had a lot of great opportunities to provide meals for our folks who could use some extra support as they adjust to a new baby or recover from surgery. As the opportunities increase, we would love to get some additional people to help who might not currently be on our list. You can make a meal, buy a prepared meal, or even have a meal delivered. If you are interested in being on the list to help provide meals, please email Sandy Buckley at strawberrymom451@hotmail.
Please join us for week 2 of our 1 John series as Pastor Rick from Allentown Bible church gives an update on his ministry and preaches on verses 5-10. We will also be hearing from Heath Petipren about the ministry God is leading him in and will be welcoming our OTW students for the new program year. It is going to be a great service followed by a time of sharing and updates at our All Member’s Meeting. We will see you Sunday.
