Joyful Noise! A NEW Family Worship
Sunday, September 27th @ 1:00pm in the Chapel
A new type of worship service designed for families
with children on the autism spectrum. This condensed

way, but our hope is families will be able to gather
in God's presence and be nurtured in faith through
word, song, and holy communion. Spread the word, and
invite your friends! We will have Joyful Noise on
the 4th Sunday of every month throughout the school
year. If you would like to participate, or know of
ways to spread the word about this service, please

Parenting Workshop - SUNDAY, October 25th
9:30 - Noon
Consider attending early worship on this Reformation
Sunday and then join us to learn how to "reform"
your parent / child relationships!
Being a parent brings great joy AND great challenges!
In the frustrating moments, have you ever asked
yourself "Why does my child act that way?!"
God has created each of us with a unique design. In
this seminar, you will learn to better understand
your child's unique personality and behaviors, along
with your own, and perhaps even your spouse! You
will also learn to identify the strengths and
challenges of different personalities, and how they
impact each parent/child relationship.
Presented by Gail Hamilton, a nurse practitioner in
adolescent medicine at Penn State Hershey Medical
Center. She is a pastor's wife and the mother of 4
daughters, who are now young adults. She is also

The Coupon Ministry is alive and well and in need of
volunteers! The Coupon Ministry collects
manufacturers’ coupons and sends them to our
military bases overseas. Base coordinators make the
coupons available to US Military families for use in
the commissary. Coupons can be recently expired.
Here’s what to do: First, clip coupons each week and
put them in the collection box marked “Coupons”
inside the Gathering Space doors. Second, help us
sort the coupons into two groups: food and non-food.
Call Kelly Rice at 717-379-4543; or email Sophie
Rice, Coupon Ministry Coordinator, at
email@example.com. The families really
appreciate these coupons, so please help. If you
have helped with the sorting of coupons in the past,
and still want to help, please also let Sophie know.
Thank you so much for your help and service!
