Robbie and Macala will be moving to Lock Haven soon! Praise God they have found a place to live. We thought it would be nice to welcome them with some gifts. If you would like to donate gift cards or other welcoming sorts of things, there will be a basket in the back of the sanctuary, or you can drop it off at the office. We want to welcome them and help them hit the ground running in ministry, so anyway you can help with that would be appreciated!
