September 2016

Our church, and the Presbyterian Church of Catasauqua, have been awarded a grant by Lehigh Presbytery to hire a part-time youth group leader for one calendar year, beginning in October. Meetings of the group will be held every other week, alternating between the two churches. During the month of September we will be seeking applicants for the new position. A minimum of two years of college and teaching experience are required. Please let the pastor know of your interest in the position, or call Reverend Doug Cronce, pastor of the Catasauqua Presbyterian Church, at 484-264- 3959 to receive a job description and additional information.

Two new members of our church, Rebecca Bilder and Tatyana Alston, traveled to West Virginia from July 2-10 as part of a Mission Trip co-sponsored by our church, the Barn (a New Church Development in Salisbury Township), and Faith Church, Emmaus. Their journey was supported by our congregation. Taty and Becky, who are a sophomore and freshman at Whitehall High School, worked with teens and adults to help with no-cost home repairs for elderly, disadvantaged and disabled residents of Cedar Grove, a mining town located in Appalachia. Projects they helped to complete, included painting, porch and step repairs, and weatherization.

Shania Schlosser, a senior at Whitehall High School, participated in PC(USA)’s Youth Triennium, a convention of thousands of Presbyterian youth held at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, from July 19-23. She was supported by our congregation and, in addition, received a special grant from our Board of Deacons. At the event, Shania attended daily worship, prayer services, small group meetings and other special events, and worked on a mission project with Presbyterian students from all over the USA. Our church had sponsored Shania as a Triennium delegate in the summer before her freshman year, as well.

Enjoy your September!
