Children's Sunday School & Church
We have several children's classes. The Children's Sunday School program is coordinated by Kim Korbich, a young woman with a heart for God and a heart for children. Assisting Kim is Iva Yoder, a retired school teacher who brings her experience in education to our Sunday School Program. Children are invited to worship services and are dismissed for Children's Church after the singing and scripture reading. On the last Sunday in each month, they remain in the sanctuary for the worship service.
Youth Sunday School
We have been without youth in our Sunday School program for a time, but are in the process of bringing back a youth Sunday School class. Interested youth are encouraged to talk to Pastor Carl at the contact information on the site.
Adult Sunday School
We have two adult Sunday School classes. One studies the uniform Sunday School lesson and the other does a book study on matters pertinent to our Christian faith.
Youth Night: Exploring God Bible Study - For Jr. High and High School youth on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 6:00 PM at the home of our pastor and his wife, Carl and Sherri Geissinger. Youth in grades 6-12 are invited for an evening of activities and fellowship. Contact Pastor Carl.
Monthly Special Offering
April - Homeless Shelter
Elmcroft - We conduct services at Elmcroft the last Sunday of every month @ 2:00 PM. We invite you to participate in the singing and fellowship with the residents.
Rosedale Mennonite Missions - In relation to our new conference affiliation with Conservative Mennonite Conference, we are now affiliated with Rosedale Mennonite Missions (RMM). There are various pieces of literature on the big table in the foyer from RMM. Please help yourself to this literature and take the opportunity to get acquainted with RMM. One of the stacks is prayer cards for the missionaries connected to RMM; please help yourself to these prayer cards for the missionary. RMM is also looking for intercessors and there is literature in that regard. There's also a prayer directory that lists each of the workers connected to RMM.
Operation Christmas Child
Each year we participate in the collection of shoe boxes filled with toys and school supplies as part of the Samaritan's Purse "Operation Christmas Child". In 2015, we prepared and sent 50 of the 14,872 boxes from Mifflin, Centre and Clinton Counties and 11,213,010 worldwide. What a great representation of our church! Our boxes went to the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and a small country in Africa.
