Please sign up here to bring sides, desserts and/or beverages -- or donate to help cover the costs of the meats (memo line "picnic"). Let us celebrate another successful year being a community of welcome and God's love in Glen Mills!

Fundraiser for Youth Group Heading to Appalachia!

In June, ten members of our Youth Group will rehab homes through the Appalachian Service Project, an organization whose mission is to make homes "warmer, safer, drier."

So far, we have raised almost half of the money we need for our trip. Help us reach our goal through our Envelope Challenge!

Our Mission Board in the Parish Hall has 100 envelopes, each with a number on it: choose the numbers matching the amount you'd like to donate. Place your donation amount matching the numbers you chose into the envelopes and return by May 26. Thank you!

Give Now & Support our Youth Group!
