COMCAST CARES DAY- Mark your calendars for this year’s Comcast Cares Day to be held on April 21st at 9:00 A.M.  Lunch will be provided. Rob Miller and a co-worker have joined forces to gather a large group of volunteers to help remodel the front reception desk area of the Hanover YWCA on Chestnut St., Hanover. Some tasks include: removing wall paper, painting, and making upgrades to the front desk. We will also be doing some light cleaning, both inside and outside the facility.  No prior experience is necessary.  Register for this event at this link: If you need additional information, please contact Rob Miller.          


LET’S GET PACKING! We’re asking for your help with our Synod’s “Day of Feeding” on Saturday June 2, 2018 at Messiah College.  600 volunteers are needed to reach our goal of packing 300,000 meals, so that nutritious food will be provided to our friends in the Philippines.  St. David’s is assembling a team of at least 15 people to help pack the meals and we want you and your family/friends to join us.  Our group will work a shift from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. (this includes 1 hour of training).  We will depart from St. David’s at 7:45 A.M.  If you’d like to join us, the sign up sheet is on the bulletin board in the hallway.  You can also use this link for signup genius:  Children are welcome to help if they have a parent or guardian attending with them.  This is a great inter-generational activity!  Sign ups will be accepted through April 22nd



COMMUNITY GARDEN– The Congregational Growth Committee is asking all gardeners, and even people that have never gardened, to participate in this year’s community garden.  Here’s how it works.  Plan your garden, and when planning, add space for a couple of extra plants.  For those non gardeners, as you are designing your outdoor space, consider adding an extra flower pot or two in your design.  Feed, and nurture and grow your garden plants.  Watch the plants soak up the sunshine, collect the nutrients from the soil, and become a source of nourishment for your and other people’s bodies. 


Now that you have a prolific abundance of crops, and you begin to wonder what to do with all those zucchini or tomatoes, here is the next step.  Tithe your crop!  Give away part of your crop produce.  Share with others the fruits of your labor.  Bring that produce to church.  There will be a Community Garden Collection Point conveniently located in St. David’s parking lot.  Specific collection dates and times will be provided.  This produce with then be given to area homeless shelters so that their clients can taste a drop of sunshine, bursting with flavor, and offered by you.  So, begin your thought process.  Allow this new idea to germinate. Plan your garden, and when the time comes, plant to not only provide for your family, but for others too. 


“The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us.”  Psalms 67:6
