Snow Removal From Church Sidewalks: As a result of the normal schedule of the Bright Beginnings Child Care of Carlisle, it is necessary to insure the sidewalks on the northeast side and front of the church be cleared of snow Monday through Friday. Currently, a rather small group of older men of the church have volunteered to remove snow on a weekly basis. However, in the opinion of the Trustees, additional younger volunteers are required. Younger men of our church who would consider volunteering to assist in clearing snow from the sidewalks, on a case-by-case basis, please let us know. (Please see Sunday bulletin for contact information.) Thank you for your service!
