There will be 2 groups arriving on Sunday the 23rd for a week of service to people living in poverty in Philadelphia. Bridgewater Congregational Church and the Congregational Church of Deep River, both from Connecticut, will be staying with us for the week.
Between the 2 groups, there will be about 40 youth and adults, so if you see new faces around campus, feel free to give them a big Old First welcome!
They will be staying in both the Social Hall and the Christian Education Buildings and some will be doing service work here at Old First. PLEASE be mindful that others are utilizing that space as their “home away from home” from Sunday July 23 through Saturday, July 29.
Then next Sunday, July 30, a group from the United Church in Walpole, MA, arrives. Please keep all the service camp participants in your prayers.
Have a blessed weekend everyone!
