The Palmyra First Church Vision Team is rolling
out a new ministry this year with the Blessing of
the Pets on October 9th at 1:00 PM in the
pavilion. Also on hand will be Jessica DiCarlo
Maloy along with Rosie. The Flower Truck will
also be there with her fall flowers for sale. Each
pet blessed will receive a certificate of blessing.
The first 45 participants will also receive St.
Francis medal as a reminder of the blessing.
The Flower Truck will make a wonderful
background for pet pictures, which will be taken
for a donation. Donations will be sent to the
donor’s choice of either Philly Bully Team or
Pancreatic Cancer Action.
The Team also was instrumental in our 9/11
Patriot Day service honoring the fire companies
that protect us. With the assistance of Stephen
Baker, we were reminded of the tragic event of
the day and given time to reflect. Following the
service, the Campbelltown Fire Company joined
members of the church for a delicious meatloaf
dinner. This is planned to be an annual service
with the focus rotating next to the police
departments and then the ambulance corps.
For November, we are inviting everyone to join
us for a fellowship meal on All Saints’ Sunday,
November 6th. We will be also inviting folks
from Noah’s Little Ark and Bethany UMC to join
in the table fellowship.
The team is also working on plans for the
Advent and Christmas seasons as well as an
event in January. Watch the future edition of
the Tower Tidings and Sunday News for details.
