SonTreasure Island: Vacation Bible School 2014 July 28th – August 1st 6:30-8:30pm

In just a few weeks, Green Tree will be transformed into a tropical island where you can join us in the search for treasure, the greatest treasure of all – God’s love! During this tropical-themed Bible School, children and adults alike will enjoy playing island games, creating colorful crafts, eating tropical snacks, and discovering the many treasures we can find in the Bible. As the time for Bible School approaches, we will be in need of supplies for our crafts class, snack time and prize bags. There will be a donation box in the lobby labeled as VBS Donations. If you have items to donate, please place them there. Currently, we are looking for donations of the following: 1lb of Pony Beads, Tea light candles, 5 packs of cheap flower seeds (such as marigolds or wildflowers), goldfish crackers,  1 pack of brown paper lunch bags, starbursts, tootsie pops, jolly ranchers, colorful pencils and erasers, and fun stickers. There is also a list posted on the bulletin board in the lobby that will be updated as we get closer to the week of Bible School. It’s Registration time! Spread the word! Tell friends, family, neighbors about Vacation Bible School and invite them to attend. Registration will begin soon! Keep an eye out for the forms. If you have any questions about SonTreasure Island, please contact any member of the Bible School committee: Kim Hallman, Pat Leiter, or Kimberly Szabo.

Water ice / game night

Water ice / game nightYou think it’s hot now, don’t you. Well wait til the middle of July. You’ll be dying for relief and the Green Team has just what the doctor ordered for you. Mark the date down now---Sunday evening, July 20th at 7:00 p.m. It’s Water Ice and Game Night at the church. Is there anything more refreshing on a blistering summer day than water ice? How much of it can you eat without getting “brain freeze?” We’ll find out that night with our “brain freeze” competition. On top of that see how you fare at the Green Tree Ultimate Four Square contest. Only the best from their training at Camp Swatara have a chance. You’ll get to play volleyball and basketball and other outdoor games. For those who are better at table games, you’ll have plenty of them to keep you busy. The best thing about this is whatever you’re doing you can keep cool with icy cold water ice. So, mark the date down ---July 20. Invite your friends or anybody in the community. It’s almost like Christmas in July.

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.
