February 9: “I’m Getting Older Now”
Definitely a program for all ages. Leading us this day is the Rev. Roger Bucy, Board Certified Chaplain and Director of Church Relations for Luthercare. Whether you are a senior citizen, or planning to be one in the next few decades, you will want to hear his presentation regarding issues that are being faced by the senior community.
February 16: Camp Sunday!
2014 is going to be a big year at our Lutheran camps. Hear what’s planned for summer camp this year as well as camping and retreat programs for all ages. Joining us is Sister Marianne Brock, ELCA Deaconess and the director of Camp Nawakwa. If you need a question to ask her, use this one: “Why do so many adult leaders in the church have a background in Lutheran outdoor ministries?”
February 23: Suburban Poverty Close to Home
It’s closer than we think. As we meditate on the words of Jesus to bring good news to the poor, we will get some firsthand examples of local poverty from Joy Meeley and Deb Meckley, social workers for the Penn Manor School District. They will speak to us on what poverty looks like here in the suburbs, how it affects families and how we can respond to it. This is a worthy issue to take in as we approach the season of Lent.
