Penn National Chaplaincy

Grace’s Missions and Outreach Committee would like to start 2018 with a bang by drumming up lots of support for the Penn National Racetrack Chaplaincy.  Our “Bundles of Warmth” program is a vital part of this ministry during the cold winter months of January and February.  The local group at Penn National is a part of the larger Racetrack Chaplaincy of America (RTCA) program.  RTCA groups put tons of time, energy and resources into supporting the families who work with the horses both on the backstretch and front side of the track, so that these families can experience God’s love first hand.  They provide things like devotions, chapel services, shut-in and hospital visitation, counseling, food assistance, meals, and social service networking, just to name a few. 
We would like our Grace family to be a part of showing these families that people care, and that God’s love is all around us.  If you are able, please purchase any size new gloves, hats, scarves and blankets, and bring them to the Missions Table at Grace before worship any Sunday during January and February.  The Missions and Outreach Committee will be sure that they get to the racetrack safely.  Any questions, contact Patrice Stillwell at 717-608-4658.  Thanks very much!!
