From the Pastor’s Desk

According to the Bible, every Christian has been given at least one spiritual gift to use in service to the body of Christ. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

Thank You

Thanks to everyone who buys Weis or Carone’s cards.  We appreciate all your support.  See Deb or let a Youth Group member know if you want some more! There are also envelopes on the table in the narthex to put in with the offering and receive the following week.


As our food pantry is used by the community on a regular basis, we are running low.  We do have an abundance of pasta and cereal.  Please try and help us stock the pantry so we could continue to offer this outreach to our community members.

The Humanness of Jesus

The apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians tells us, “…But (Jesus) made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. (Phil. 2:7).

A lot of people have argued about what Jesus emptied Himself of, exactly. Most Christian scholars agree that when Jesus […]
