Room For The Inner Way

Shared prayer time this week in the “Room for the Inner Way” will focus on our concerns about current social and political issues facing our world today and our emotional responses to them. 

Within our Christian context, we will use various forms of prayer, scripture, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping), a gentle and calming mind/body practice, while praying our feelings and concerns. 

Lori Sweet is leading.  Open to everyone, the gathering is held in the Room for the Inner Way on the fourth floor.

SUNDAY Morning Breakfast

On any early Sunday morning, if you head down to Fellowship Hall, you will see people eating breakfast. The Community Breakfast, as it came to be known, was started 10 years ago by Market Square Church members who wanted to serve those in Harrisburg who needed a breakfast.

The program had a simple start, offering cereal, juice, coffee, and milk, funded by the Board of Deacons. Due to the responsibility of serving breakfast for 52 Sundays out of the year, other church groups have responded including the Church of the Nazarene (New Cumberland), Bible Baptist Church (Shiremanstown), and the women of our Korean-speaking congregation. In addition, Craig Partridge leads a group of people who serve in memory of their friends, Bob DeVore and Bruce Eshenour.

Some breakfasts include eggs, pancakes, sausages, and a variety of other special dishes. Harrisburg has a large population of hungry people and the church may serve anywhere from 50 to 125 people any given Sunday of the year.

We at Market Square are thankful for what God has given us and that we can provide this community outreach. We are grateful that other congregations are willing to assist the Harrisburg community.
