  • HUNGER RELIEF IN SOUTH SUDAN:  We have learned from our friends visiting from Juba, South Sudan that over 40% of the South Sudanese have no food.  The recent violence plus poor weather conditions for growing crops add to this problem.  A warehouse of UN food relief supplies was broken into and food stolen.  Shenango Presbytery is sponsoring a project to collect money to send to hunger relief through the South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church.  Our Session has approved a special collection which will be taken August 28 and September 4 and this money will be sent along with donations from other churches in the Presbytery on September 28, 2016.  PLEASE consider donating to help in a small way for God's people in a devastating situation.

  • Our regular worship hours will return next Sunday, August 28!  Sunday Light (beginning with breakfast in the social hall) at 9:30 am followed by Divine Worship at 10:45 am.
