On November 5, several dedications took place of items that have been presented to the church. After the first service, the fireplace in the Hospitality Center was dedicated in loving memory of Zenith and Lester Landis and Margaret and Julius DeMackiewicz by Rosemary and Donald DeMackiewicz. The fireplace contributes to the warm and homey atmosphere of the Hospitality Center. The television screen mounted on the fireplace was also dedicated in honor of Abigail Foutz’s confirmation. It was given by Jim and Jean Foutz and is instrumental in communicating information about upcoming events in the hospitality center.
After the second service, the Celebration of Life Garden and the Little Lending Library were dedicated. The garden was inspired by the life of Evan Kreider whose happiness, joy and contagious smile impacted many. After Evan’s death, family and friends contributed to the garden. The opportunity for others to celebrate their loved ones was extended to the congregation. We would like to extend thanks to Louis Rossi and Rossi Landscaping, Steve Kern and Kern Landscaping, Jean Foutz, Meredith Fausey-Kreider, Dave Kreider, Doug Smith, Nick Huntley, Jim and Sandy Fausey for working on the project. We would also like to thank those who contributed to the garden through the purchase of pavers, furniture and monetary donations:
