"Fill the Trailer" Food collection for The Factory Food Pantry
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic God has opened the door for our church and extended the open door to our community to help those struggling during these uncertain times. This open door is a partnership that we have formed with The Factory Ministries to collect non-perishable food items for their food pantry. Thursdays we have turned our church parking lot and a trailer donated by one of our members into another drop-off point for The Factory's "Food Friday" food collection program.
The Factory food pantry collects and then distributes these items to those struggling within the Pequea Valley School District. Each week The Factory posts a list of items that are most needed in their pantry, which can be found on our church Facebook page. However, any non-perishable food item makes a HUGE difference to those struggling within our community. Items like cereal, body wash, shampoo, canned vegetables, applesauce, toilet paper, paper towels, and so much more are collected and distributed to those hurting in the Pequea Valley School District.
Will you partner with us? If so bring your donation to the church Thursday afternoons from 3:30 to 6 pm.

Small-Group Bible Study-Counter Culture
Wednesday, October 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, November 11th and 19th at 7:30 pm
Have you ever wondered what the Bible says on hot-button topics like sexuality, race, and the sanctity of human life? Especially in the midst of these uncertain times that come with pandemics, social unrest, and an election season. That is why we are diving into a Bible Study called Counter Culture by pastor and author David Platt. In this study, participants will learn what the Bible's response is to these and other hot-button issues. Plan to join us for this six-part series either in person or online via Zoom and help to understand the Bible's response to these questions of our culture.
About Counter Culture:
Counter Culture Bible Study includes a small-group Bible Study Book, DVD teaching from the author with six 30-minute sessions, and the book on which the study is based.
The Bible is clear on a number of issues:
- Who God is—the holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe
- Who we are—men and women created in the image of God for our good and for God’s glory
- Who Christ is and what He has done—His life, death, and resurrection
- What it means to follow Christ—to die to ourselves and to live in Him
- Why this matters for eternity—heaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel
So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our day—realities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution?
David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?
Election Eve Prayer Night
Monday, November 2nd at 7:30 pm
Do you want to make a difference in our country as we enter another presidential election? Well, the Bible tells us that one of the most powerful things that we can do is to pray, so that is what we are going to do (Ephesians 6:18.) Monday evening November 7th, at 7:30 we will open the doors to the church to allow our community to gather together in prayer and turn the next day's election over to the Lord. Expect an encouraging service where the truth will be exclaimed, that ultimately the King of Kings is not named Joe or Donald, but Jesus Christ. Expect a night of prayer, worship to that King of Kings, and an evening where the truth God's Word will be exclaimed. All are welcome!
