Summit Family Picnic
Come to the Summit Family Picnic immediately after worship on Sunday, September 11. We will be celebrating the kick-off of the school year for Sunday School. All are invited!
We plan to have hotdogs, turkey dogs, veggie burgers, baked beans, desserts, and some surprising salads. So please mark your calendars and join us for a cook-out instead of the usual coffee hour on the side lawn (or in the gym, if it rains). We hope to provide games, crafts, and other activities for the kids.
Those who would like to know how they can help, please contact Delores Paulk, firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-621-7296.
Saturday, September 17th
9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Parlor
Come for a morning of conversation, prayer and a common meal on the theme of deepening and sharing our faith. This is a congregational retreat – all welcome! – with Elders, Deacons and Trustees especially encouraged to attend. We’ll have coffee and light refreshments at 9:00, and begin promptly at 9:30. Our hope is that we will both deepen our connections with each other and become more comfortable with reaching out to others in a way that’s authentic and joyful. Details to follow, but please save the date. Lunch included! Please talk to Cheryl for more information.
Would you like to sing or ring?
We would love to welcome new members to our Chancel Choir and Bell Choir when we start up again in the fall. Anyone can join, no auditions to qualify! The Chancel Choir (singers) meets at 9:30 on Sunday and also rehearses from 11:30-12:30, after worship. The Bell Choir rehearses on most Monday nights at 7:00, and plays several times a year. If you’d like to learn more, please speak to music director Clara Hong at coffee hour or email her at email@example.com.
You Can Help Families Experiencing Homelessness
For many years, Summit volunteers have provided a direct service to homeless families through the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (PIHN) (www.philashelter.org) with our host partner at the Germantown Mennonite Church. Volunteers are needed to either stay overnight at GMC or come in the early evening and provide the meal. Summit’s Deacons, currently through Valarie Oulds-Dunbar, recruit Summit volunteers for a particular week. A representative of PIHN will come to Summit soon and make a presentation at a worship service. They are seeking our participation for the week of September 11th. Please contact Valarie if you would like help at firstname.lastname@example.org
