Special Church Council Meeting - Oct. 6

There will be a special meeting of the Church Council on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 6:30 pm for the purpose of reviewing Countryside’s Mission Insite report that will be presented to the congregation and the District Superintendent at our 2021 Church Conference on Nov. 9.

This meeting is for anyone interested in exploring the demographics of the geographic area served by Countryside Community Church. No other church business will be conducted at this meeting.

This will be a hybrid meeting. You may attend in person in our Meeting Room, or online using the Zoom link. If you would like to have a printed copy of the report before the meeting, please contact the church office at or (570) 587-3206.




Countryside’s fall rummage sale will be held on Friday, October 8th and Saturday October 9th from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. 

We will be accepting items in good repair and working order on Monday the 4th, Tuesday the 5th and Wednesday the 6th  from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. We are asking that you send no clothes, linens, electronics, T.V.’s or computers.

We are doing a slightly pared down version this time. We will have the church fellowship hall and the pavilion in use.

There will be no bake sale. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be available for sale under the pavilion.

We request that masks be worn inside.

Any questions please contact the church office



Chocoholic Frolic

Please help us with this different kind of chocolate fundraiser for the church. Instead of making our own chocolate we have decided to partner with Gertrude Hawk this year. We are asking our church family to sell $10.00 gift certificates that can be used at any Gertrude Hawk store. You may also use them on any merchandise within the store—even sale items. They will not expire for one full year.

If we can sell 500 gift certificates, they have offered us a 40% discount but if we only sell 200 the discount goes down to 20%.

These make perfect gifts for teachers, mailpersons, doctors, nurses, your personal sweet tooth, or anyone else you would like to remember!

Order sheets (which you can download below) and money are due to the church or Donna Urbaniak on or before Sunday, November 7th. Any checks should be made out to Countryside Community Church. Certificates will be available for pick up starting November 14th.

Contact the church office for more information.
