CELTIC MUSIC ON THE PLATFORM
Gather around the performance platform in Schmucker Grove (between Valentine and Schmucker House) on Sunday, August 21 at 6 PM for a concert by Cormorants Fancy, one of the area’s more beloved and honored bands. You’ll get to see a new side of Dr. Folkemer! Like all Music, Gettysburg! concerts, it’s free and open to all. In fact, if you’d like to make some money listening, we’re always looking for ushers – see Ashlin for more information and to volunteer.
TOUR THE PHILADELPHIA MORMON TEMPLE
The world’s newest Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been built in Philadelphia and will be dedicated this fall. Until then, it is available for anyone to tour – thereafter, only Mormons will be allowed inside. Now’s your chance to see this important religious site and interact with eager tour guides. We’ve got 15 reservations for Labor Day, and will need to be at the Temple at 8:30 AM – the van is reserved, so you can sleep on the way! Please talk with Pr. Oldenburg for more information, or send him your interest in taking part.
GOD’S WORK, OUR HANDS SUNDAY IN ADAMS COUNTY
On Sept. 11 people from around the ELCA will be stewarding their time in hands-on service to their neighborhood. It’s easy to get involved in that effort here in Adams County! Eight activities are already set up and awaiting volunteers (including one which involves providing supplies, just in case you’ve got time earlier, but none on that day). Just go to http://signup.com/go/QabBYg for more information and to sign up! Grab some friends and get your hands dirty with God’s work!
MEET SURVIVORS, INC.
Fri., Sept. 23, 12:30 – 1:30 PM Intro to Survivors, Inc. Survivors, Inc. is a local agency which provides education and a safe haven for those affected by domestic violence or human trafficking.

They’ll be speaking to students interested in these issues (like who wouldn’t be!) over lunch on Friday, Sept. 23 in Valentine 310 (you’re welcome to brown bag – beverages provided) about this important ministry. For more information, see Pr. Oldenburg or Pr. Zimmann.
A group will be going to Camp Hill state prison on Monday, Oct. 24 to learn about ministry within those walls. Since Camp Hill is perfect site for people to use to fulfill their multicultural requirement, this might be a great chance to explore that! Clearance requires applications, which should be in four weeks in advance, so don’t delay to send an email to Pr. Oldenburg expressing interest.
The Seminary Choir is the most important extracurricular student organization on campus, a fun activity, and a great place to meet your fellow students.

The choir rehearses Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from12:55 pm to 1:25 pm and on Wednesdays from 1:40 pm to 2:10 pm. Singers are welcome even if they can only make 3 of 4 weekly rehearsals. Seminary choir is open to all interested persons regardless of musical skill or experience! Please volunteer by contacting Dr. Folkemer at email@example.com (so you can be added to the email list) or speak with him at any time.
The Seminary Brass Ensemble is open to all players of at least intermediate ability level. Interested players must contact Dr. Folkemer at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ensemble rehearses once weekly. The date and time of rehearsal will be arranged once we have heard from all interested.
All persons able to help our community in worship musically are encouraged to volunteer. We use liturgies employing every possible instrument (traditional, folk, contemporary, latin, blues/jazz/gospel, etc.). If you would be willing to offer your talents please contact Dr. Folkemer asap at email@example.com.
If you are able to lead the community in its hymns and liturgies on the piano or organ, and would be willing to be on a list of substitutes for Dr. Folkemer, please contact him firstname.lastname@example.org.
