Items needed for Foster Care
Sanctuary is still collecting items for teens who have hurriedly been removed from their homes due to parents or guardians in opioid overdoses. Items to be collected through mid July. They will then be sent to Family & Children’s Services in Lancaster. There is a blue flyer by the mailboxes with a list of items needed.
THINK what you would need if suddenly removed from your home without even hardly being able to pack a bag for yourself!
Bible Study Every Tuesday at 7:00 pm
We will begin the study of Mark’s Gospel. We are in year B in our Lectionary cycle. The primary gospel read during Year B is Mark.
