May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.


1 Thessalonians 3:12 (NIV)

Camp Hill UMC launched a new fresh expression in March. It is a dinner church called Food, Faith, and Friends. Food, Faith, and Friends gathers together to share food, discuss faith, and become friends. Like all Fresh Expressions, Food, Faith, and Friends is a form of church primarily for the benefit of those who are not yet part of any church family. They are currently offering a drive-thru meal pick-up, with an invitation to join a private Facebook group. The Facebook group is a safe place where they will be introduced to Jesus. Learn more at


Ideas for prayer are shared from Food, Faith, and Friends, Camp Hill Dinner Church for each day of April. These prayers come directly from those attending the dinner church, names omitted for privacy. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
