Chester County Connect Care (CCCC), formerly known as Chester County Women’s Services, will hold its third annual Summer Picnic on Saturday, Aug. 5, from 4 to 7 p.m.,  at a new location- West Brandywine Township Park, 198 Lafayette Road, Coatesville. Admission to the family-friendly event is free, and registration is suggested but not required.

Activities will include yard games, live music and food trucks, a petting zoo, and there will be face painting and balloon animals for children.

Scheduled to perform in the park’s amphitheater are Bryar Bullock from Freedom Life (FL) Church in Christiana and his worship band, as well as youths from FL Kids, who will sing and dance.

Singer Erica Barnes will be featured, as well as Gabe Mahalik, who will perform comedy and rap. There will also be a drone demonstration by officer Richard Craig from the West Brandywine Township Police Department. The guest speaker will be Joe Knopp, executive producer of the movie “Unplanned.”

Bring blankets and chairs and stay for a while. We will have all entertainment throughout the whole day. A schedule of speakers and performers is available at

Food trucks that will be on hand include the Nacho Depot and Philly Pretzel Factory. Rita’s Italian Ice will be provided free of charge to all attendees, and children age 12 and under will receive a complimentary lunch.

There will also be an opportunity to win gift baskets, with separate child-friendly baskets available to youngsters. All in attendance will receive a goodie bag.

CCCC is a local nonprofit pregnancy care medical center. It was known as Chester County Women’s Services for 37 years before the name change in 2022. The new name is meant to reflect the agency’s effort to provide assistance to all family members, not just mothers. CCCC offers free limited ultrasounds for expectant mothers and provides basic pregnancy care such as prenatal vitamins and free nurse consultations throughout the course of the pregnancy. Parenting classes are offered, as well as Bible studies and peer counseling. Families can use the points they earn from attending classes to “purchase” parenting essentials from the CCCC Parenting Boutique.

Winning Wednesday, November 10th – Win a digital download of Hillsong Worship’s album, These Same Skies

November 8th, 2021 No comments

Hillsong Worship released their newest album, These Same Skies, last Friday. We’re celebrating Winning Wednesday, November 10th, by giving away digital downloads of this uplifting live worship experience.

Brooke Ligertwood says about this album… “These Same Skies that declare God’s glory day after day and night after night, proclaiming the words of His hands (Psalm 19:1-4) are the same ones under which Christ Jesus was born, lived, obeyed, suffered, was crucified and rose again. These same skies the disciples saw the Lord ascend into in Acts 1 (Acts 1:9-11) are the same ones that the angles (Acts 1:11) and Jesus Himself said He will return on (Matthew 24:30, Matthew 26:64, Mark 13:26, Mark 14:62). It is under these same skies that Christ’s church – His body on earth – exists today. And – though separated by oceans and closed borders – the mandate of Hillsong Worship continues under these same skies. One in heart and spirit, unified in mission and cause – to glorify the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to build His Church, and to serve His Church with the new song.”

Listen all day for your chance to call in and win. Keep our number handy 717-392-3690.
