Our congregation has a proud history of supporting those brave men and women willing to put their lives on the line for our freedom. We honor those living and those who have died in service to liberty.
The Joint Vets Council, sponsors of the Memorial Day parade have chosen our cemetery to be honored this year and will hold the service outside following the parade. Pastor Deb will lead the Invocation and Benediction.
Parade starts in E Greenville at 10:00 am and should be at the cemetery at 11:00 am. Please come out and support our veterans.
In preparation of this event, we ask for prayers and a willingness to “pitch in” to prepare for “company coming!”
The Committee will honor the late Charlie Mest this year.
On the first day of summer, Tuesday, June 21, Upper Perk will be filled with music. Pennsburg UCC will be hosting some participating musical groups.

YARD SALE: This year for the annual yard sale /flea market fellowship committee is not sure if we should have tables for donated items or do just flea market which would be people buying spaces and setting up their own things.. I would like input on the congregation's opinion of which way you think we should have it. Previous years the church had numerous tables with donated items from members and friends. So does everyone still have things to donate? Also the committee would need help setting up and manning those tables so see me or someone on the committee to give input. This event is planned for July 9th with rain date of July 16th.
