We're chipping in!

Today at Meeting for Business, we were in unity on contributing to the fund for a new digital sign to be placed in front of the Hanover Township Volunteer Fire Station. In recognition of our contribution, our name will be displayed from time to time on the digital sign.

The fire company will use the sign to provide information about its work, outreach activities, emergency telephone numbers, updates on storms and snow, and so on.  It's a great opportunity to have our name literally up in lights at a location just across the street from Wegman's of Bethlehem.

 YEARLY MEETING EVENTS

Registration is coming soon!

On June 24, a Called Session will be held in response to our conflicts surrounding racism and recent staffing changes. The plan for the day is in development, and our intention is to make space to listen for God in our midst and listen to one another fully as we labor together. Everyone is invited, and we hope that each meeting will send at least one person so that our whole community is included in this important work.

The Called Session will be at Arch Street Meetinghouse, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 24. Please bring a brown bag lunch. Snacks, drinks and childcare for children infant – middle school age will be provided. (Please RSVP by June 12  if you need childcare so that we can provide adequate support.)

Celebration of Life for Kirt and MaryLou Muhlhausen

More than 75 people attended the Meeting for Worship and Celebration of Life of Kirt and Mary Lou Muhlhausen on Saturday, May 13. A heavy rainstorm passing through the Lehigh Valley prevented the family from hosting a gathering at the family home at Rainy Day Farm. Instead, the celebration fellowship meal took place in the common room of the meetinghouse.

Family members commemorated their loved ones' lives with two sculptured breads. One inspiration for the family tradition came from a newspaper clipping, which a granddaughter shared. Today's bread gifts were a kitty and a woven bread bowl containing a bowl filled with apple butter.
