August food drive - Suggested donations for August include baby food, formula, peanut butter, jelly and canned soup. As always, other items are also welcome. Thank you very much for your continued support of our food drive for the people served by the Christian Caring Center.

ShopRite & Acme cards are available for sale in the narthex following all services and are redeemable for full face value. St. Peter's receives 5% of each purchase to help fund faculty salaries and other needs at Redemption School, Gonaives, Haiti. Thank you.

Updated Deacon's Office Hours through Labor Day: Wednesdays, August 15, 22, and 29 from 9am-12 noon. Please feel welcome to drop in!

Operation Fill-a-Backpack: We're collecting school supplies and backpacks for children served by Oaks Integrated Care. Please help fill the labeled bin in the narthex July 27-August 11. Suggestions include backpack for boy or girl, insulated lunch bag, organizers and binders, pens, markers, highlighters, pencils, erasers, notebooks, loose-leaf paper, rulers, scissors, glue sticks, index cards, book covers, report folders, calculators, tissue packets and hand sanitizers. Thanks for your support!

Today during the service, take a moment to look around. Is there someone from St. Peter's you haven't seen in a while? Let them know that you miss them! On the long table in the narthex, there are postcards for you to send to a friend who hasn't been here in a while. Feel free to take one, write a note to the person and mail it, or fill it out and leave it in the basket and Lisa will mail them. Please be sure to sign your name so that they know who sent it.

Please remember our ill and home bound parishioners. Send them a "letter of light" on the round table in Williams Hall.

Sunday School 2018-2019: As we plan for the 2018-2019 Sunday School year we are in need of teachers for Grades 1-3 and 4-6. Each grade has 2 teams of 2 teachers who team-teach every other week so that no one is teaching alone in a class. Curriculum is supplied and as much support and resources as you need is given by your Director of Christian Formation, Sue Legnani.

We also need helpers in the Godly Play room (Pre-K to Kindergarten). Those people assist the teacher, who is the story teller, by helping the children find and use the materials in the room, help with snack and with getting the children settled for the lesson time.

Finally, we always need folks to watch children in the Nursery (age birth to three years old). The more Nursery volunteers we have the fewer times you will serve in the Nursery. This is an important service for parents of young children and a great way for teens to work on community service for school or Scouts. An orientation to the Nursery will be given to acquaint new volunteers before they are placed on the schedule.

For more information please contact Sue Legnani at or 609-654-2963.
