Curryville Newsletter

Curryville Church    Newsletter May 28, 2020

At this point – Our plans are still short-term.

Sunday Messages
This Sunday, Pastor Dave will present the 7th message in his series on The Return of the Lord. To prepare for this message, you can read 1 John 2:18-26.  The topic will be the spirit of Anti-Christ and how to recognize the enemy’s influence in the world.
If you have missed any of these messages, PD strongly recommends listening to any you missed on the church website.  This series is very cumulative and to fully understand it, you will need to hear all the messages.
Don’t forget to catch Pastor Dave’s mid-week messages.  This can be found on our Facebook page and website.

Sunday Gatherings
This coming Sunday, May 31st.  We’ll continue to meet in the parking lot, with the tailgate style format.  You will be permitted to get out of your vehicles and sit in lawn chairs in front of your vehicles.  Coffee and Sausage Sandwiches will also be available to benefit the Youth Gaga Pit,
We are still the church, wherever we meet.  Sunday messages will continue online, as well.

Next Steps
The Safety Team medical personnel are working towards a short-term plan B, if the weather is not good for meeting in the parking lot on Sunday mornings.  Time is still needed to make appropriate arrangements to reenter our building.  In these days, we need patients. We are all tired of our current circumstances. I (PD) am very anxious to get back in our building, but we need to do so with caution and responsibility.

2nd Shift
As a small group, 2nd Shift will begin meeting in person on Monday evening June 1st. We will gather in the pavilion.

Youth Group –
Our youth and helpers will be meeting for a picnic and campfire this Sunday at 6:00 PM, in the pavilion.   For the Summer months, we are taking things one step at a time.  In general, we are thinking about having 2 events a month.

Small Groups
Since we are now in YELLOW, small groups can begin meeting at the church.   We do recommend that you meet outdoors in the picnic pavilion, whenever possible. Spreading out in the sanctuary is also an option.

Joining the Service by Phone
For the foreseeable future, we will continue to have the Telephone Conference in place at 9:30 Sunday mornings, for those unable or uncomfortable with attending in person.
Call 667-8781, when it prompts you to enter your PIN, enter 937274 followed by #      

Calling for Graduates
As we prepare for the end of the school year we need you to let us know if a member of your family is graduating from any type of schooling. We want to acknowledge our graduates. Please contact Dorcas Holm.

Keeping in Touch
Pastor Dave has been working his way through the church directory calling folks from the church.  If you would like to talk to him, 934-2809 is his number. Please do not hesitate to contact him.
This is also a great time to “invite a friend” to church.  Simply invite them to visit our website:

 If you choose to send your financial support to the church, please mail your checks to
PO Box 5
Curryville, PA 16631     

Online Giving
We are also wondering if you would be interested in online giving as an option. Look for a survey on this in the future.  This is becoming popular in many churches because of the convenience and the ability to give anytime you choose.                                                                                                                                                                                    

In the meantime:  Keep checking in on Facebook and the church website for updates.

Things to keep in mind.
Donations to the Martinsburg Food Pantry are being received at C & S Grocery Store.

Don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Dave or a Deacon if you need to talk or have a need.
