Do you have about a half hour available each week, or every two or three weeks? If so, please contact Pastor Brian to discuss the possibility of collecting our Friendship Registers. This task could be done by one person or shared by two or more people.  Thanks for considering this request.

Do you enjoy decorating for Christmas and would be willing to open your home for others to see?  Please consider having your home on Adelphia’s “Homes for the Holidays” tour this December 2nd.  The tour is meant to show different styles of decorating and NOT meant for you to do any more than you usually do.  That’s what makes it so enjoyable!!!  Every home is different and shows the personality of those who live there.  Please consider opening your home.  Contact Audie Gabrielse-Breit, Kass Hoffmann, or Else’ Allen.

Mission of the Month: The offerings received in August will be going to a ministry called Faith Comes by Hearing providing Military BibleSticks to military chaplains that distribute to servicemen and women.

To learn more about the Military BibleStick and Faith Comes by Hearing, please visit their website at The amount received to date is $10.00.
