Hospital Visitations: If you are admitted to the hospital be sure to inform them that you would like Pastor Pagotto notified. Dinkey Memorial Church's code number is 370. By giving the hospital that number they should have all the information on file to contact the church office.
Lay Eucharistic Ministry: Vising homebound members of the congregation and sharing communion with them is an extremely rewarding ministry. By taking a few hours a month to visit and spend some time with a homebound member of the congregation you are making yourself a conduit for God's love helping keep that person connected with his/her church family. If you are interested in participating in this task or just want to find our more information, please speak with Pastor Tony. Perhaps you can even accompany him or one of the other ministers on a visit to experience it for yourself.
Advent Toile-Tree: We will once again be collecting toilet paper and other toiletry items during the season of Advent for the St. Peter's Community Center. These items are distributed to those in need each month. These necessities are not purchasable when using food stamps, so this ministry is a huge benefit to those in need, especially the elderly. So bring in those package of toilet paper and let's build our Toile-Tree!
Hanukkah Celebration: On Friday, December 15th, the confirmation class will be visiting the congregation at Temple Israel, Lehighton for a meal and worship. The group will be meeting at Dinkey at 6 pm. Anyone interested in attending should contact Pastor Tony.
