This Month’s Food Bank Donation
United Methodist Women: United Methodist Women in the Penns and Brush Valley area will meet on March 14, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the library at Grace UM Church in Centre Hall. Doris Tobey will present a program from the covenant study book. An offering for the annual Call to Prayer and Self Denial fund will be collected. This year’s fund supports Neighborhood Center in Harrisburg as well as other national and international programs such as the Youth Network Against Violence in San Francisco, the Young People’s Ministry in Liberia, and Libre in Nicaragua. All of these programs provide services to children and young people in need. Some are focused on pre-school and after school programs and nutrition while others focus on health education to prevent the spread of disease.
The church is wheelchair accessible from the entrance to the Sunday School at 127 S Pennsylvania Avenue. For more information contact Jane Taylor at 814-777-1099.
