SOULFUL SINGING - Please mark your calendars! Ruth Fitz will be leading Soulful Singing on Sunday, June 16, 2019. We will begin at 4:30 pm. This gathering includes ice cream! Please bring your favorite topping.
  The Spiritual Enrichment Team would like to make Soulful Singing a monthly event. It is challenging to find a date that works.  We hope to meet on the THIRD SUNDAY of the month. Unfortunately this plan did not work for July! Save the date of Sunday, August 18. Meeting the third Sunday of September and October is tentative at this time.

CONTACTING THE PASTOR
Pastor Joel can be reached most mornings in the church office Monday - Thursday from 9:00 AM to noon. Afternoons and evenings are often set aside for visiting those in need, for meetings, and for other pastoral duties. Pastor Joel is also available for Pastoral Counseling by appointment. 
If you need to reach the pastor outside of office hours, his home phone number is
(717)318-5442, and his cell number is (717)271-4888 . You can also email him at pastor@yorkfirst.org. Note that laws prevent hospitals from contacting a pastor without your permission when you are admitted, so you will need to let hospital staff know that you would like the hospital to contact your pastor.
