    Collection for PACS

    Collection for PACSCollection for PACS June 14 to July 19   The Witness Commission invites you to contribute to Green Tree’s annual collection for Phoenixville Area Community Services. The collection will take place from June 14 to July 19.  Donation boxes will be placed under the ledge in the lobby. Items to be donated include everything that you might buy for your family during your weekly shopping trip - canned goods, breakfast foods, baking supplies, paper products and personal hygiene products are a few examples.  We will be collecting anything that can be stored in a pantry.  PACS also accepts monetary donations and grocery store gift cards, which are used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and meat.  And if you happen to have a large number of reusable grocery bags that you do not need, PACS would love to have them. We were reminded recently that with the school year over soon, many children who rely on the school lunch program for breakfast and lunch will not have that resource.  PACS is one of the local organizations in our community that provides for those in need.

    47th annual Atlantic Northeast District Conference

    47th annual Atlantic Northeast District Conference The 47th annual Atlantic Northeast District Conference is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, 2016 at the Leffler Chapel on the grounds of Elizabethtown College. The theme for this year’s conference is Fixing Our Eyes on Jesus based upon Hebrews 12:1-3. In these days when we find ourselves distracted by national politics, a world and even our own neighborhoods torn by violence, cultural issues which divide our nation and the church, the Scripture calls us to “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles,” to “not grow weary and lose heart,” but to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us,” fixing our eyes on Jesus “the author and perfecter of our faith…” As those who have been reconciled to God through Christ, we have been given a unique and vital message for our world today: “that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ…and has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors…” (2 Corinthians 5:18-20). If we are to be Christ’s ambassadors bringing God’s message of reconciliation, peace and hope, our eyes must be fixed on Jesus, learning from him, growing in him and open to his call to go and be his ambassadors in our neighborhoods, our schools, our workplaces and in the world. No one else will do it. We’re the ones so called. The goal as always is that every congregation in our District will be represented at the conference. The opening roll call will include photos of the people of each congregation and will serve as a visual reminder of the “cloud of witnesses” that makes up the Atlantic Northeast District. Jeff Carter, President of Bethany Theological Seminary, will be the preacher for the worship which will follow lunch. The conference is open to all, so invite others from your congregation to attend and participate. The logo for this year’s conference was created by Wyatt Howe, one of the youth of the Spring Creek congregation in Hershey. The photo was taken on a bank above the stream near the original Spring Creek meetinghouse. Wyatt’s father, Greg, is pictured fixing his eyes on Christ’s cross. Dennis Garrison, Moderator

    Continuing the Work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.

    Welcome to the website of the Green Tree Church of the Brethren. Please accept my invitation to explore this website and learn more about our congregation and the Church of the Brethren. When people express interest in who we are, it is common for us to respond with the following phrase: “Continuing the Work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.” This phrase encapsulates our attempt to follow Jesus in an effort to further his kingdom here on this earth. In essence we are a group of people who endeavor to continue the work Jesus started over 2000 years ago. As you surf through the links provided on this site, hopefully you will discover ways in which we continue Jesus’ work in the world today. I invite you to join us in this endeavor and to walk with us as we grow in the faith together. Please come worship with us soon and learn more about the activities and events that we offer. David Leiter Pastor
