Below is a list of some upcoming events at COD:

Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow.  The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef.

Mark your calendars now, so you don’t miss the fun as our children present this timeless musical.

Sun. Mar. 25, 12:30: Youth and Faith That Works Special Project

Did you ever want to get involved with an outreach ministry or project? Maybe you’ve wondered how you can get involved or what it would be like to get involved. This ministry is actually for everyone.

You’ve recently heard about this exciting outreach project coming up, when the youth will be joining Faith That Works, in making plastic bag mats for the homeless. There are many steps in making these mats and we can use your help. Maybe you are thinking at this moment, “How can I help”? Bags need to be cut into strips, tied together, rolled into balls, and lastly they need to be assembled into mats. Would you please consider helping us? We are meeting on Sunday, March 25th after church, in the Blue Room.

    I wanted to ask if you have the dates of your VBS in June. My family lives in Guatemala but we visit the PA area and my kids participated in it in recent years.

    Thank you
