IT’S OFFICIAL… St. David’s has a Book Club!  The first meeting will take place on Thursday, September 13th at 6:30 P.M. in the church library. This month’s book is Joshua by Joseph Girzone and the discussion will be led by Deb Kronsteiner.

There will be book club meetings the 2nd Thursday in October and November @ 6:30 P.M. in the library.  The books for those months have yet to be determined, but the titles will be shared through the newsletter and bulletins.  Happy Reading.


 “I SEE GOD…” is our Renewal Team’s summer initiative to be mindful of how we see and experience God outside of our church building. This week’s theme is:  “I see God while shopping”.  Each week, the Renewal Team has a theme for which you are asked to submit pictures or brief passages with the completed caption:  “I see God…”   Submissions can be made to or placed in the box in the gathering area.  Check our website ( and our Facebook page each week to see a slide show of pictures submitted.  


THE GATHERING FOR FAMILIES scheduled for today has been postponed.


25th CAR SHOW PICNIC GATHERING:  On Sunday, August 19th at 12:00 P.M., there will be a picnic for everyone who helped at the car shows over the years. If you didn’t help this year and helped in the past, be sure to join us.  Please bring a covered dish to share.  Hot dogs, hamburgers, rolls, drinks and paperware will be provided.  A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board.


THANK YOU:  Dave & Pam Kemper would like to thank you for the gift card and the plaque.  Also for all of your help last week during the car show.  Without all of you, we could not do everything during the show.



HANOVER AREA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES’ FOOD BANK REQUESTS- AUGUST:  Mixed vegetables, coffee creamer, and mayonnaise.  Place donations in the basket by the main entrance.


SUMMER OFFICE HOURS are Monday – Thursday 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.; closed on Fridays.


COMMUNITY GARDEN NEWS:  We are continuing to collect donated produce on Sunday mornings here at the church. You will find plastic bins near the front entrance where you can deposit your tithed produce. Each week, our donations will be taken to area shelters and food banks by members of the committee.

If you have a large volume of produce, please bring it bagged so that it’s easy for one person to transport. Do not bring the produce in bags that you will want personally returned.  Thank you for loving your neighbors just as you love yourself.


LAUNDRY LOVE:    Every second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 P.M., our team meets at Suzi Suds on North Carlisle Street, Hanover.  We can still use some help during these evenings.  If you are able, please join us on August 14th.  Hope to see you there.


BIKE RIDING & WALKING ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 18TH.  We will meet at Hanover Junction on the York Heritage Rail Trail at 9:30 A.M.  Everyone is welcome to join us, both bikers and walkers.  If you need directions to Hanover Junction, contact Connie Kopp or Pastor LaDonna.




THRIVENT ACTION TEAMS:  Are you looking for ways to give back to your congregation and community – and get funding to do so? On Sunday, August 26th at 9:15 am in the sanctuary, Ann Seitz-Brown will share how Thrivent Action Teams bring volunteers together for fundraisers, service projects and educational events that make a difference in people’s lives. Thrivent supplies T-shirts, banners, and even a Visa card loaded with $250 in seed money. Thrivent members are encouraged to attend, since they each have up to $500/year in Action Team funds available. Non-members are also encouraged to come, because for about $20, you can become a Thrivent associate member and apply for an Action Team and $250 in seed money. No product purchase is necessary. Ann will show how to apply for Action Teams online and on the phone.
