Drama group discontinued for now
:  I would like to thank Leola UMC for their support of the Act of Faith drama group.  For the past 5 years I have seen such tremendous spiritual growth with members of this group. Their busy lives, and the decline of the students being able to participate in drama, and with much prayer, it is with bitter sweet sorrow that the Act of Faith drama group will stop for now.
I look back at the dramas we have done, such as Come Holy Spirit, Set me free, Thank You, My Jesus, and the places the drama group has ministered to, such as Greta Glen, a women’s retreat for “ Truth for Women” ran by Kim Checkeye,  St Paul’s Methodist church in Manheim, First UMC of Pottsville, Ohio Methodist church up in State College. I pray that Leola will continue to support this group of students as they find their way in this world, and may they continue to be strong in Gods word, and follow Gods own heart for them. 
To Randy Smith and Alison Blanshine for their commitment over the years, I want to say a big THANK YOU!!!!! To a great group of parents, you are the best. We could not have done this without your great support . And now to The Act of Faith Youth. You are going to make a difference in this world. I am so proud of you
Ben Smith, Heather Smith, Megan Smith, Matt Hoffman, Kara Strickler, Justin Beiler, Jessica Campbell, Darian Pompey. I will miss our times together, but I can’t wait to see what you do with your lives, I know it s going to be amazing!!!!!!
In His service,
