The Cross In My Pocket

I carry a cross in my pocket —
A simple reminder to me
Of the fact that I am a Christian,
No matter where I may be.

This little cross is not magic
Nor is it a good luck charm;

It isn’t meant to protect me
From every physical harm.

It’s not for identification
For all the world to see;
It’s simply an understanding
Between my Savior and me.

When I put my hand in my pocket
To bring out a coin or key,
The cross is there to remind me
Of the price He paid for me.

It reminds me, too, to be thankful
For my blessings day by day,
And to strive to serve Him better
In all that I do and say.

It’s also a daily reminder
Of the peace and comfort I share
With all who know my Master
And give themselves to His care.

So I carry the cross in my pocket,
Reminding no one but me
That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life —
If only I’ll let him be.

Keep Sunday Holy –
Our church, along with other local churches is a part of the Keep Sunday Holy Team.  We want to keep Sunday morning free of mandatory events like sporting practices or games.  That way, we can choose church, if we feel it has an importance in our family.  This effort was started as a result of a letter from a teenager about how her family has been torn up over the choice of church attendance versus other mandatory events outside of church.  So far we have started conversations via letters to the Editor.  We manned a tent at the West End Fair & Chestnuthill Community Day to share our feelings.  We are also encouraging other churches to join in this effort.  We consider this to be a non-confrontational, ecumenical bridge building service to strengthen families in their spiritual growth. 

Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network — (PVEN) serves residents of Chestnuthill, Eldred, Hamilton, Jackson, Polk & Ross townships.  They are always in need of non-perishable food items, as well as clothing (including school approved items), blankets and personal care items, as they help many families in need in our community!  They are open for Food Distribution on the 1st through 4th Tuesdays of the month and the 2nd Saturday of the month, all are from 9:00-11:30am and both food and clothing distribution is by appointment only.   There are currently no evening hours.  Call 570-992-3136 to register or make an appointment.  Contact Colleen (Director of Operations) at 570-992-3136 or email her at for more information on volunteering & pantry needs.  Donations can also be brought directly to their new facility located at 2234 Route 209 in the  Sciota/Brodheadsville/Saylorsburg area.
