Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 30th from 8 AM—12 Noon for our next church work day. A list of tasks will be published prior to the event, and we’d love to have a great turn-out. Many hands make light work! Please see a deacon if you have questions or project suggestions.

An important element of our goal to come alongside of survivors of domestic abuse is Refuge Ministries. We are currently holding weekly support groups for women and men, here at Providence, and welcome others to join us and find healing and redemption from oppression. Do you know someone who would benefit from participating in these weekly support groups? Please see Vince or Karen for more information.
LifePath has an exciting new opportunity to volunteer that is open to all — no orientation required! On May 30th - June 1st, LifePath will host their Annual Book Sale at York College of PA. This book sale is a wonderful fundraiser for the ministry and we could use your help!
Book Sorters are needed to help comb through the donated books and sort them into categories to ready them for our sale (Mondays & Thursdays, 9 AM to 2 PM). Without these sorters, this book sale would not be possible! Please note: Volunteers must be able to lift 40 pounds or more. To sign up, go to go.iamlifepath.org.
Lost & Found
If you misplaced something and cannot find it, maybe you left it at Providence! Stop by the table in front of the office on your way out today, and check out the treasures!
Mom’s Morning Out
Save the date! A Mom’s Fellowship Event is planned for Saturday, March 23rd from 9-11 AM at the church. All Providence moms are invited to this fun event to fellowship with other moms. Childcare and baked goods will be provided. Please direct questions and RSVP to Jamilah Gregory. If you would like to help with the event please let Jamilah know. The more the merrier!"
Potluck Dinner & Game Night
After a productive work day, what better way to relax and unwind than coming to the next PPC Potluck Dinner and Game Night?! Whether you enjoy playing games or not, this is always a fun evening; Come for the food and stay for the fellowship! Join us Saturday, March 30th at 6:00 PM and bring 2 covered dishes to share. If you have a favorite game, please bring it as well. We have several board games and/or card games being played at the same time.
Weekly Craft Groups
Ladies—Do you enjoy fellowship while working on a craft project? A group of women meet weekly on Tuesdays from 1-3 and the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month at 7:00, here at the church, and they welcome newcomers. Just bring that half-finished sweater or the scrapbook you’ve wanted to complete for years and join in the comradery. You do not need to be a member of our church to join us.
Women’s Weekly Bible Studies
We are excited to be offering two Bible studies for women, one which meets during the day and the other in the evening. Pick the one that works best for you, or come to both!
The daytime group meets weekly on Thursdays from 9:15-11:00 AM. They are using Courtney Doctor’s study, From Garden to Glory. See Shannon Hawk with questions.
The Friday evening group meets weekly from 7-8:30 PM and is studying NavPress’ LifeChange series, The Book of Ephesians. They would love to have you join them! Contact Kathy Hassinger with questions.
Do You Love Babies?
The nursery is in need of at least four more regular volunteers. Currently, we have sixteen men and women who care for our little ones on a rotating basis, which means 2-3 times per quarter. If we have just a few more helpers who are willing to love these children (and their parents) by volunteering during Sunday School or worship, we could spread the frequency out. Please consider joining this team, and be prepared for a lot of hugs, book-reading, playing and fun! Childcare clearances are required for all volunteers, but they’re free and easy to apply for. See Mary Oles or Marlena MacPherson with questions or to sign up. Thank you!
