Church Picnic on Rally Day
On the Sunday after Labor Day, September 12th, on what is traditionally known as ‘Rally Day’, our annual church picnic will be held at Peace, beginning at 11:30 am (after the worship service). The church will provide beverages, hotdogs, hamburgers, and all the fix-ins. Congregation members are asked to contribute appetizers, salads, & desserts. There will be a sign-up sheet in the narthex for contributions of food, games, equipment & time.
We need your help to bring tents/canopies that day & help set up the tables outside, as well as family-friendly games (i.e., corn hole, croquette, ladder toss, horse shoes, etc.) and sprinklers if it’s hot to help make this a fun & festive event!
As a special offering at our picnic, please bring a new toy for a child that is served by A Woman’s Place, a Bucks County agency that provides help to women & their children who are dealing with (and in many cases fleeing from) domestic violence in their homes. Toys such as Playdoh, Legos for boys and girls, Barbie dolls and their accessories, superhero figures, and magnetic tile sets are favorites for these children. The gifts will brighten the special holidays/days for these young victims of domestic abuse.
