News From The Churches

Soupfest Benefit Dinner for Santana Reithmiller on December 8, 2012 from 4-8 PM

This event is being held to assist Santana’s husband, Brandon Riethmiller with funeral and medical bills.  Brandon is a member of Unity Presbyterian Church, and the couple were without insurance at the time of Santana’s fatal accident.  Lebanon Presbyterian Church is joining with Unity in this effort, and will hold their monthly music event in the Unity Pres. fellowship hall.  There will be multiple music groups who will provide country music in a coffee shop style atmosphere as those who attend mill about sampling a wide variety of soups.  Live Country music will begin at approximately 5:00 pm.  Henry Troyer, of Lebanon Pres. will be the MC for the evening.

We are asking that folks bring a soup bowl or mug and their own spoon.  The recommended donation is $5.00, which of course does not limit those who wish to make a special gift.  Unity Pres. is located at 1857 Mercer-West Middlesex Rd., Mercer, PA, 16137.  Contact Rev. Hunt at 724-854-8022, if you wish to make a donation of a crockpot of soup or other donations as appropriate.

Allen Organ Available

Ruth Ray has a 2-manual Allen organ with over 16 stops and a 1-octave foot pedal that is small enough for home or church use.  Any church that could use it is welcome to it.  Call 724-658-4138.
