Our youth will be stuffing valentine boxes with chocolate for you to take in February. We will have three size boxes with three different size suggested donation amounts : small -$10, medium -$25, and large -$50.
You can pick up your valentine box in the Narthex starting on the first Sunday in February. You can make your donation when you pick it up, or there will be an envelope and you can drop your donation in the offering during our worship services on another week.

Creating a safe, loving environment is one of the foundations of what we do as God's people. Developing an atmosphere that protects our children is critical. We, as Christians, must be diligent about this task. The Western Pennsylvania Conference highly recommends that every church adopt and implement a Safe Sanctuary Policy and creates a Safe Sanctuary environment within the church facility and throughout its ministry.
**all volunteers who work with children and youth in the church are mandated to attend this meeting with Pastor Chris Kindle from the Western PA UMC conference**
If you plan to volunteer with the children or youth in the future this is a requirement you must meet-- you will not be able to volunteer next year if you have not completed this training.
*this is NOT for youth-- it is for anyone 18 and over. please note: anyone who is a parent, trustee, leader of the church may also want to attend so you are aware of the safety policies that our church is responsible for holding!
Please RSVP to Rachel at if you plan on attending
