The Bistro Returns (sort of)!  


On December 5, 2021 prepare for the return of the Market Square Bistro – not exactly like the way we used to do Bistro, but hopefully with lots of fun and funds raised to support Help Ministries of Christian Churches United.


Bistro Table Sponsorships will fund the event and anyone who wishes to be involved with supporting the Bistro with a leadership gift may do so.  Leadership gifts (Bistro Table sponsorships) start at $130.00 for one table; and grow in increments of $130 for additional table sponsorships.  You are invited to become a Table Sponsor for this year’s Bistro event by sending a check with Bistro on the memo line or by clicking the  “Bistro" Button below.


Table sponsors are entitled to receive 16 oz. (one pint) of each of the four Bistro soups offered for 2021.  They are:

     • Red Lentil with Lemon

     • Creamy Corn Bisque

     • Turkey Black Bean Chili

     • Estee Lauder’s* Beef and Barley Soup

*Honest to goodness family recipe from the famous Estee Lauder!

To sign up to help make the soup on one of the Saturdays leading up to Bistro use this link: ttsu.me/d3gjg3

In order to make for a successful Bistro, we will still require lots of bakers of cookies/brownies and also bread/muffins.  To sign up for Bistro Baking use this link:  ttsu.me/wzntzj 

On December 5, all of the Bistro soups will be available for Market Square members and friends to enjoy starting at 12:15 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall.  We will serve soup (all 4 varieties) until we run out.  Those wishing to make a donation to CCU’s Help Ministries will be free to do so if they so wish on the day of Bistro.  


To sign up to help on the day of Bistro, please use this link:  ttsu.me/dmvseh 

Each of these sign ups (soup making, baking, and working on Bistro day) are separate and distinct.  If you have any questions, concerns, or just don’t like using sign up links, please feel free to contact Alice Anne Schwab aliceanneschwab@gmail.com

or contact Alice Anne by phone, 717-576-2500.  


As if soup, baked items, and a fun and festive time were not enough, we’ll also have Joy to the Burg CDs at the Bistro, solving your holiday gift giving needs!

Let’s have a great 2021 Bistro!  Looking forward to seeing you there on Sunday, December 5.  


Each year in early December, Market Square members cook homemade soup, bake bread, and make delicious desserts to raise money for HELP Ministries of Christian Churches United. Over the past 30 years, Market Square Bistro has raised more than $172,000.00 for CCU’s Help Ministries, providing funds to assist those with emergent needs in our community.

This is a completely volunteer effort with 100% of the money raised goes toward HELP Ministries of Christian Churches United.
