Current job, hobbies, or special talents: Purchasing Manager, Leidy's Inc. I enjoy gardening, cooking and reading.
What has been your involvement with Hokey Pres: I've been on Session for many years, and have served on the Fellowship & Group Life Committee since I joined the church. I've also been on Property, Communication and Personnel. I also sing with the choir.
Fun or special memories of Hokey Pres: The fellowship with the Church family - picnics, soup suppers, hymn sings, etc.
How did you come to find/attend Hokey Pres: It was the closest Presbyterian Church to where I lived when I moved back here from Florida. I came for Sunday service and liked the church. The Pastor at the time was Dave Batcheldor, who gave a very good sermon, and I was greeted after the service by Ruth Miller, who made me feel very welcome.
Family Info: I have a son, Joe, who lives with me, who was confirmed here, but no longer attends. He does, however, help out with Property issues whenever I ask him.
Fall Clean Up!
Please join us at the church for an INSIDE clean-up on Saturday, September 20th.
Fall Clean Up, Part Two!
We’ll be assembling another work crew to clean up the outside of the church in October. Details to come. Thanks for everyone’s hard work!
The dedication, team work and contributions of so many people helped to make the Ice Cream/Basket Social quite a success. Many THANKS to all who sacrificed precious time, creative talents and endured the heat on one of the hottest days of the year to realize a profit of $1,593.00.
Returning to fall schedule on September 14th
Worship time: 10:00 a.m.
Choir Practice will start on Wednesday September 10th. New choir members are always welcome. Rehearsals are every Wednesday from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Interested in Volunteering in the Nursery?
We are organizing a volunteer list to staff our Nursery during worship service. A volunteer will be in the Nursery during an entire service, if parents wish to drop off their child in the beginning or the middle — of worship service. Please see the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board or see Tammy Seidick. Thank you!
Drip, Drip, Drop!
Our leaky roof has been fixed! Please click here for photos. A big thanks to all who have made contributions to our Roof Fund. We are still accepting donations to cover the cost of the repair, which totaled $15,000. To date, we've received $6,500. We're hoping to replenish our Building Fund with additional donations. Thank you!
