BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS. Next Sunday, August 25, we will have a special “blessing time” for our children and teachers as they return to school – or start for the first time! We send them on their way knowing we have entrusted them to God for a great year of learning and friendship. So students and teachers, bring your backpack to worship and receive a special backpack tag with a blessing.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! On Sunday, September 1st, during Extending the Table, we will be having CPR and AED training. The training will be provided by Aidan’s Heart Foundation and led by our own Christa Glogowski, who is also one of their board members. Aidan’s Heart Foundation is committed to providing awareness, education, and support to the communities of the southeast Pennsylvania region and its surrounding area to create heart-safe communities for youth regarding the prevention of and/or response to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. We are looking for CPC volunteers with current CPR/AED certification to help out that day. If you would like to help, please see Christa Glogowski or Brad Aucker.
A WONDER! KICK-OFF PICNIC will be held on Wednesday, September 4, at 6pm. Come out for an evening of fellowship and learn more about the upcoming offerings for Wonder! and Grand Central Stations. There will also be an opportunity for you to meet Rev. Jenny Warren, our new Transitional Pastoral Associate. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by signing up at the Welcome Center or calling the office.
RESCHEDULED YOUTH POOL PARTY —Students in grades 6-12 are invited to attend a pool party at 24 Spring Meadow Drive, Sunday September 8, from 2-4PM. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate, and we’ll have a chance to enjoy some end of summer sun!
LEAD Elementary-aged Kids Class at Wonder! Volunteers are needed to serve on Wednesdays from 7-8:15PM with kids from K-5th Grade, beginning September 11. Lessons and activities provided. Looking for people to serve at least 2 weeks per month on a rotation, at least through mid-December, with option to continue again when Wonder! resumes in February.

VOLUNTEER TO BE A LITURGY LEADER. Would you like to be more involved in our wonderful worship services? We want to invite you to take a new step into worship by volunteering to help deliver the liturgy to the church. Examples include delivering the scripture before the sermon, reading a prayer, or helping deliver announcements every so often (i.e. not every week). Time commitment is minimal, but the effect of having you join us in the leadership of our worship services will be huge! Contact Jessica Clark-Weikel with any questions or to volunteer. Email [email protected]
