The mission trip this year is heading to Elizabeth City, NC. This inland coastal area gets occasional damage from storms that hit the coast. Winters just off the ocean are harsh and make for needed repairs of all sorts. Possible work projects include building a ramp, cleaning and repainting a home in need, or shoring up a porch and making it safe. Our youth director, Matt Rishell, is taking a team of 20 students. Please be praying for them during this time of work and fellowship. If you are interested in joining the team as a chaperone or supporting them financially, please contact Matt at [email protected]

We are pleased to welcome our new interim pastor, Rev. Dr. Barb Yorks, who began her time at First Presby on June 1. Rev. Yorks comes to us from the Thompsontown/Locust Run Methodist church where she has been serving since 2013. As a student at Bucknell University in the 1970’s, she attended our church and became an associate member and sang in the choir. Later when she decided to go into the ministry, Rev. Merritt stood for her as a sponsor during her ordination. She has family in the Lewisburg area and continues to be active in Bucknell organizations, including teaching Life-long Learning classes and serving on Alumni and Scholarship committees. 

We have also hired Alison Collins as the new Administrative Assistant. She began her work in the office on May 21. She was born and raised in our church and is excited to be a part of the First Presbyterian Church in this new role.
