Celebrate the start of the Sunday School year and return of the choir at our annual cook-out on the lawn. We’ll have hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs on the grill and activities for children.

Please contact Delores Paulk at 215-621-7296 or firstname.lastname@example.org by August 27th to let her know what you can do. All are welcome and it’s a good day to invite
