Clothing Container Fundraising Program
Help your community place their unwanted/gently used clothing, shoes, apparel & linens in our clothing collection containers. This saves our landfills and gives back to low income families in need! In return, this program raises funds for local non-profits and organizations in our communities. Currently, we help raise funds for the American Cancer Fund, Rotary International, Eden Autism, and many other local non-profits.

Check out the can in the Fellowship Hall to recycle aluminum cans. Not only does it help the environment, but it will generate some cash for the church. Beth Schoening has volunteered to empty the can periodically and take the cans to the recycling center. So, if you have any aluminum cans at home, please bring them in and it will help the earth and Faith Church! Thank you! (Make sure they are aluminum though…if a magnet does not attach to it, it’s aluminum.)

Faith Playdate – Friday July 14th at 10:00 AM – 12PM
Members of Faith are going to welcome pre-school to young elementary age children and their mom or caregivers to the Fellowship Hall for a couple hours of socializing, activities, snacks, and stories. We are reaching out to share the love of Jesus and providing a place for young families to come together for a couple of hours! The theme of July’s Playdate is Noah’s Ark, and we will be learning about Noah and God’s instruction for building an Ark, the animals that he brought into the Ark, as well as building boats and seeing if they can float all while snacking on Animal Crackers. If you know anyone who would be interested in attending this event, please give them a handout from the table outside of the sanctuary. They can RSVP to the office or via our website. Walk-ins are also welcome. If you would like to help, please contact Gail Achilles or Deb Hollenbach. We will be hosting another Faith Playdate on Friday, August 18th.
June/July Social Ministry project - North Penn Strong Community Build-A-Bag School Supply Drive
Each year, the North Penn School District Educational Foundation works in partnership with schools and guidance counselors to help families and students in need get the supplies they need to be successful in school. By alleviating the financial burden that school supplies can bring, students are able to focus solely on their studies and know they are set up for success. If you would like to participate in this project, please take a post-it-note from the easel in the foyer and put the item(s) purchased in the purple barney bin.
