Continued Prayers for Baby Anthony

The results of the testing last Friday showed that Baby Anthony (son of Anthony and Christen Kladits, youth director at Northminster) had no brain activity.  He was removed from life support on Saturday, and was moved to the hospice floor last evening.  He continues to breath on his own and is the talk of the hospital.  His parents are beyond exhausted and are getting very little rest.  Please continue to keep this family in your prayers.

Important!! Watch for this Form from the Pennsylvania Department of State

The Pennsylvania Department of State is requesting a Decennial Report on the continuing use of the corporate name of each of our churches by December 31, 2011.  The state is charging a $70.00 fee for the filing.  Our Synod of the Trinity is working on a group response that will save the fee and the work of complying.  Do not complete this form at this time. Further information will be coming from the Synod.
