Welcome

Cedars Visit
Washington, DC  Smithsonian Museums,

POTOMAC VALLEY CHURCH & National Harbor, Maryland
Saturday, Sept 23 & Returning Sunday, Sept 24, 2017

On September 23, 2017, the Cedars travelled south to visit the Potomac Valley Church of Christ (PVCOC). Forty-four passengers on a deluxe David Tours coach headed out Saturday morning, ready for a long anticipated visit with the Cornerstone Ministry, the mature disciples of PVCOC.

En route to Virginia, there was a stop in Washington, DC at the Smithsonian Museums. Most of our travelers visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture which was celebrating its first anniversary. Others visited the Museum of the American Indian, the Hirshhorn Museum and the Museum of American History.

That evening we were met by more than 25 host families who provided dinner and housing for us. Such amazing hospitality!!

Travelers and host families came together for continental breakfast before service which was a celebration of Grandparents Day. Bill Thorne of the Northern Virginia Church delivered a powerful message from Luke 4 and 5.

Back on the bus, we headed to the National Harbor on the beautiful Potomac River in Maryland. After sight-seeing and early dinners, we headed back to Philly. What an amazing and beautiful weekend. Thank you so much Potomac Valley!!

Visit To Lebanon, PA

Cedars of Lebanon took a road trip to Lebanon, PA on July 15, 2017. The purpose of our trip was to have our July Cedars meeting with the mature ministry of the Mountain Rock Church of Christ in Hershey, PA. We met at the home of Dacio and Diana Moraes. John Gaines led the meeting. We had a great turnout of both the Cedars and the group from Mountain Rock Church of Christ. The weather was gorgeous,  the food was delicious, the fellowship was wonderful. After the meeting some of us played some games. It was a great trip, turnout and fun for all.  Here are links to pictures of our great day.
John Gaines stated ” God blessed us with awesome weather, great food, excellent meeting site, and wonderful host. It was great seeing and reuniting with our brothers and sisters from the farm lands of Lancaster County and of Hershey chocolate.  Thank you Cedars for your willingness to travel. Thank you Dacio and Diana for you hospitality. Thank you God for providing such a wonderful opportunity to share love and build memories. ”

Churchwide Women’s Devotional

Cedars of Lebanon Churchwide Women’s Devotional was held on June 17, 2017 at 9:00am, at The Church on the Mall in Plymouth Meeting, PA. The theme was “The Dash”. The Dash is the time we spend on earth, the day we are born through the day we die.
 The devotional was also a celebration of Eve Gaines life.
We had an interactive conversation with six people broken down into three age groups.
20-30 Raven Williams and Cedar Regina Morris

40-50 Suzanne McCarthy and Cedar Debbie Wilson.
They each shared about their “Dash”
Renee Hughes spoke to us about the importance of exercising. Lori Hamilton spoke to us about healthy eating. Venus Gwynn spoke to us about taking care of our bodies. Venus provided handouts on different tests and the time frame we should have them done to maintain healthy living.
A gift exchange table was organized by Gilda Abney, Bonita Looney, Clarisa Mabry. A highlight of the gift exchange was sharing some of Eve Gaines  clothing.
Eve’s daughter Rosalyn Vinson shared about Eve, her life, her devotion and her love for all of us. Eve will be truly missed, she was such an inspiration to all of us.
