It’s not time for Back to School already, is it?
Thankfully no. We still have plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine, read a good book, go swimming, or whatever we do to rest, relax and refill our energy level. And while we’re enjoying a slower pace, let’s enjoy the thought of some ways to refresh our spirit throughout the year. One of the best ways for us women to refresh is to pray together, and study our Bible together and enjoy each other’s company. So let’s do this:
Women of all ages, we are invited to sit, pray, and share our reflections using the book Girlfriends: Exploring Women’s Relationships in the Bible. We don’t already have to be girlfriends. We don’t all have to be members of Pennsburg, UCC. You don’t have to be old, you don’t have to be young (you can be either or in-between!!) You are welcome to invite friends. We’re all busy these days, but lets try to come together for an hour. I’m suggesting we meet on Thursday at 4:30pm – so you’ll be home in time for dinner. But if you have a better time in mind, please, please, please let me know. I’m flexible!
Saturday, August 8th from 8:30 to 11:00, PUCC property committee is hosting a Weeding Party. Bring your favorite garden tools, dress is casual, no RSVP required. Together we are going to spruce up the property. Don't want to be outside, there is plenty of fun things to do inside too. Coffee, juice and cake will be served! Hope you can attend. The more the merrier!
Our Peach & Ice Cream Festival will be held Saturday, August 15, so please set that date aside and come help to make it a success. We can always use more help. These functions cannot continue unless we have the congregation helping. Click here to download a flyer to print and post to help spread the word!
It's that wonderful time of the year at Pennsburg UCC!

It’s time to invite all our animal friends and neighbors to the second annual Blessings of the Animals, Sunday August 16th at 9:00am. This is a great way to share the love that flows through this congregation with people who don’t yet know how great you are! If you would like flyers to put around town, please call the church office. This service is done in remembrance of St. Francis and his love of animals. We will worship outside under the big tent. Bring your animal(s) or a photo of your pet for a blessing. After the service there will be a brunch and maybe some leftovers from the Peach & Ice Cream Festival.
