    Fellowship and Service at Camp Swatara April 24-26, 2015

    The Witness Commission invites you to join us for a weekend of fellowship and service at Camp Swatara on April 24 - 26th. We plan to start the weekend off on Friday evening with board games and snacks in the West Area Lodge. Our service project is scheduled for Saturday morning. Camp Swatara has suggested that we complete the second half of the project that we started last year - staining the new West Area cabins (weather permitting). Saturday afternoon will be full of recreational and fellowship activities. We hope to be able to have a campfire and roast marshmallows for S’mores Saturday evening. We will worship together on Sunday morning before we return home. We will be staying in two of the new West Area cabins. The cabins are heated and have bathrooms and showers in the cabins. We will be using the West Area Lodge for indoor activities. All meals will be provided by Camp Swatara and served in the East Area dining room. The cost of the weekend is $67.50 for adults and $33.75 for children after a 25% discount given by Camp Swatara in thanks for our service. And those who pay by March 31st will receive a $10 discount for Adults and $5 discount for children. Single day prices for those who would like to come on Friday and stay for Saturday, or come on Saturday and stay until Sunday are $38.25 for adults and $19 for children. If you can only make it for the day on Saturday, the only charge would be for meals. A member of the Witness commission will be in the lobby with the sign-up sheet to answer questions after each service. It is always good to take time from our busy lives, to fellowship and work with our church family.

    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
