Delivery Instructions for the Cookie Walk

Drop-0ff will be on Friday, December 13 from 8:00 until 10:30.  There will be helpers in the alley on Irvine Row who will unload your cookies near the kitchen door so that you will not need to park your car.

Cookies can also be dropped off on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 1:00 until 4:00, but you will need to bring them to the kitchen yourself.

If you need another time, help with transportation, or have questions, please contact Carolyn Freberg.   717-713-0985.

The Stewardship Committee is so grateful for all of you!  This year has been exceedingly positive as most households have increased their pledges and we have welcomed 15 new households into the spiritual practice of pledging. We have 143 households pledging for a total of $371,000  At this point, the stewardship team will begin calling all households from whom we have not heard, so that we can reach full participation. We look forward to speaking with you about the mission and ministries of St. John's as we prepare for the coming of the Christ child.
