Thanks to a contribution from the Highland Presbyterian Church, Men's Bible Study Group we now have this wonderful unit to store milk in during food distributions! Thank you gentlemen! We are SOOO appreciative
We would like to thank Troops 93 and 99 for organizing Scouting for Food. Together they collected 7,918 pounds of food and 68 pounds of hygiene items. 7,918 pounds of food represents food orders for 396 families! The Council of Churches would also like to thank McCaskey HS “Hooverville” project. Along with the simulation of homelessness experience, they organized a food drive and donated 2090 pounds of food. Both community donations are a HUGE help to the families we serve. THANK YOU!”
The Lancaster County Council of Churches would like to thank GIANT for their extravagant generosity. The gift of 250 turkeys will ensure 250 families will have a happier holiday season.
Resolution on Community Violence
The prophet Jeremiah calls upon the people of God to seek the welfare of the city where they
are and to “…pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare” (29:7).
The Lancaster County Council of Churches Board of Directors grieves the loss of life across our
country and our world in recent months. God cares deeply for all persons, in all places, in all
As people of faith who serve anyone in need, and transcending denominational and inter-faith
differences, we call upon all houses of worship in Lancaster County to a season of prayer and
unity for the welfare of our community.
We commit ourselves to pray daily for all of our brothers and sisters who have been
victims of harm and violence.
We commit ourselves to seek systemic and institutional change toward fairness, social
justice, and racial equality.
We commit ourselves to an ongoing educational process of learning what it means to
dismantle systems of oppression, injustice, and racial inequality.
We commit ourselves to be part of the solution, part of the conversation, and part of the
way forward through our actions of hospitality, forgiveness, and service.
Approved unanimously by the LCCC Board of Directors, July 19, 2016
