Greetings Keokee Chapel Family:
Grace and peace to you had your family during these winter months. Continued prayers for a safe and healthy Lenten season.
Some of you have voiced your concern for the need to return to regular worship services. The Administrative Council will make that determination next month. One question is how many people have received the vaccine. If you have received your shot, please let me know by replying to this email (DO NOT HIT REPLY ALL!). The more information the council has, the easier it is to make a decision.
I am concerned that I have not received any replies to my request for people to attend the Tools for Ministry event on March 13th, nor has anyone volunteered to be a delegate to Annual Conference in May. Both events will take place via Zoom. Please prayerfully consider volunteering. Representation for Keokee Chapel is needed.
I hope you have found a Lenten Bible study of some type to be engaged. There are numerous offerings. UMCOM.org or EPAUMC.org websites can help you.
Linda Getz has informed me that she is in need of new gloves and new socks for the Sleeping Bag ministry. Let one of us know and we will make arrangements for pick-up.
Please continue to support our food pantries. The Pocono Mt. Ecumenical Hunger Ministry and C.A.M.E. can always use monetary donations. C.A.M.E. still receives food donations such as: tuna fish, breakfast cereals, rice, jelly, canned fruits, soup, pancake mix and syrup.
Volunteers are needed at Pocono Mountain on March 3rd and 6th from 9:00AM till noon.
The weekly offering are listed below. No volunteers have come forward to make a commercial for the website to solicit funds. Please prayerfully give as God has given you. Needed per month approximately: $ 3,750.
