Take a look at our Newest Scripture Performance!
Piercing Word's brand-new production, Stewardship in the Bible, is now playing throughout Lancaster County and beyond! Experience all that Wisdom has to say about the resources God gives us and how we're meant to steward them.  This monopoly-themed production explores the relationship between faith and works, and offers a humorous, yet compelling look at both the Wise Man and the Fool.  Focusing on Biblical, financial principles, this piece incorporates topics of tithing, saving, taxes, giving and more! As always, this Scripture Performance is word-for-word from the ESV Bible.

Stewardship in the Bible will be at Piercing Word Presents on
February 23rd, at
Calvary Church in the lower auditorium,
3:00pm and 6:00pm.

Virginia Tour
They're Back!
Our Virginia Tour team has returned safely back to Lancaster after an eight day tour of Parables of Jesus!  Having gone to nine different venues in four cities, they were able to minister to over two-thousand people in churches, schools, and conventions, and saw two people place their trust in Jesus as a result of their ministry.  God used our team to bring joy and laughter to multitudes of people, and to re-kindle a passion for His Word in their hearts.  We are thankful for each team member, venue, and host home that helped to bring God's Word to so many!  

"This week, God restored joy into my life by reminding me that HE gives life, and life abundantly!" - Kay Seiler, Virginia Tour Stage Manager 
Summer Camp
  If you have a child between the ages of 10-18, who is looking for a hands on, Christ-centered activity, you can sign them up for our Summer Theatre Camp!  Campers will attend a week-long day camp lead by Piercing Word team members, and will participate in Theatre Classes, Bible Study, Games, and MORE!  Tuition also includes a field trip to Sight & Sound Theatres to see Queen Esther.  At the end of the week, campers will perform their Scripture Performances for their family and friends in a Summer Camp Showcase.

Piercing Word International Tours
"Going to Israel with Piercing Word was absolutely a life-changing experience. To walk the steps where Jesus walked and hear His words in their actual settings is just amazing. I'll never forget going to the Mt. of the Beatitudes, sitting on the ground looking out over the Sea of Galilee and hearing the words of Jesus from Matt. 5-7. Watching, listening and even smelling the sea air ---what an awesome experience, as was the entire trip." - Tom Gehr

Piercing Word has TWO international tours coming up this year!

Israel: "Walking with Jesus" (May 12-21 2020)
Greece: "Walking with Paul" (October 7-17 2020)

Venture across ancient lands and discover present-day truths as Piercing Word Team Members perform scripture word-for-word in the places where it actually happened!

Venture Program Offers Unique
Business-Student Partnership Opportunities
The HMS Venture Program, for grades 9-12 students, continues the faith-based, hands-on and student-focused instruction that HMS is known for, plus much more! Missions trips, full-day and half-day job shadowing opportunities, internships and the chance to study at your own pace are some ways the program helps students prepare for vocational and/or college placements.

PA EITC/OSTC Tax Credit Program for Scholarships
Did you know that the state tax credit incentive program for scholarships assists more than 60% of our students with opportunities to attend Hinkletown Mennonite School. This program has continued to grow for nearly 20 years now and puts private, Christian education within reach for many low and moderate income families in our region. Currently, we serve students in Northern Lancaster County and Berks County, including some from Reading City and greater Berks County.

For those involved in this exciting program and currently directing gifts through PA Mennonite Scholarship Organization (PAMSO), please look for their new name: Everence Foundation, beginning in 2020.

Special Purpose Entities
Some business leaders and those who may not be able to receive tax credits through the traditional business application are seeking to do so through new Special Purpose Entities. Feel free to contact me with questions regarding this growing, popular tax credit option.

An SPE may be beneficial to you if you have not received approval for tax credits in any form, or have only received partial approval of your proposed application credits. Ask for more details and I will be glad to help you. If approved through an SPE when the state contacts you to indicate you can roll off a waiting list with their direct program, you can simply decline credits at that time and pursue which option was approved first for your individual or business taxes.

Should you or your accountant have any questions or need additional contact details for a scholarship organization, please contact me (717-354-7100 x1005 or
We are very grateful to the many different businesses and individuals who give generously to HMS through these scholarship programs each year. These EITC/OSTC gifts help provide need-based scholarships to over half of the current HMS students! 
You can apply online!
