Walk into a potluck at the Pennsylvania Conference’s Shermans Dale church, and you might nd sauerkraut or barley casserole or vegan lasagna. One thing you will always find is a feeling of family. And a pot of “Grandma Sterner’s” baked beans.

The beans have been a staple at the potluck for the last 30-plus years, rst made by grandma Grace Sterner, now cooked by her granddaughter, Robin Page.
