UPCOMING DATES TO REMEMBER
Community Fellowship & Meal
Some of our church ladies (Sylvia, Marie, Fay and Sally) will be preparing another meal at Living Stones Church’s weekly Community Fellowship time on Friday, November 16.
Living Stones Church does this every Friday and we help them out two times a year to give them a break from cooking. We know that our member, Doris Sholly, also will occasionally prepare a meal for them. The church is located at 229 East Main Street in Newmanstown and the meal is served between 11:30 and 12:30, during which time there is fellowship among those attending. You do not need to meet any requirements other than to show up for the meal. The meals vary, and our ladies haven’t decided yet what they will serve. Please feel free to stop by and meet with other people of the community while enjoying (hopefully) a tasty meal on November 16!!
