The youth in the Sunday School at Zion Lutheran Church, Brodheadsville, have opted to initiate a Can-A-Day as their mission project for 2014.
They are determined to collect 365 cans of food, or food items, because they have learned, through the study of the Bible, how much they have and others don't.
Collected food items will be the building materials for a stone altar to be constructed in the church narthex. The Sunday Schoolers hope to reach, or even exceed, their goal before the Lenten season begins March 5.
The Chestnuthill Seniors meeting at Zion Lutheran in Brodheadsville will have a special program Wednesday. "Your Hips and Knees" will be presented by Dr. Roger Componovo from Mountain Valley Orthopedics at 11:15 a.m. For more information, call 570-420-3746.
