The annual SpiriTrust Chambersburg Auxiliary membership drive is taking place during the month of May. Anyone can join with a minimum contribution of $1, and because of the generous support in 2017, the Auxiliary was able to make donations to SpiriTrust Lutheran Home Care & Hospice, SpiriTrust Lutheran LIFE, SpiriTrust Lutheran Counseling Services, as well as The Inn Endowment Fund at the Ridge and many other important programs and services. Checks can be made payable to ELC with “Auxiliary” in the memo line.

The office will be closed on Fridays during the summer (June through August).
