Have you ever found yourself in an “in between” place in life? Maybe you were “between” jobs … or in “transition” from one relationship to another … or stuck between that proverbial “rock and a hard place.” Maybe your “in between-ness” is due to a dependency upon drugs or alcohol or prescription medicines. Maybe it…
Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise…

Although Christine had only been a member of St. Peters for six years, she left an indelible impression on everyone with whom she interacted. As an active member of the Senior Choir, chair of the Global Mission Committee, and member of the Stewardship Committee, she set a standard for using her time and talent to serve others. A philanthropist and activist, Christine was the driving force behind many campaigns, charity drives, and fundraisers. She was on the President’s Board of Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and Lutheran World Relief (LWR) organizations and was the Malaria Campaign chairperson for the Lower Susquehanna Synod. She had a special passion for women’s rights and was an active board member of the YWCA in Harrisburg and P.E.O. Sisterhood. Chris loved God, served others and helped change lives. In honor of Christine’s work, a Global Mission Memorial Fund has been established in her name. We hope that you will consider supporting this Fund now and in the future. Checks can be made out to St. Peters Lutheran Church and designated Mummert Memorial Fund. Thank you from the Stewardship Committee.
Additional volunteers are needed for the church nursery at both the early and late services, as well as occasionally during the Sunday School hour. We have recently lost several volunteers and, for early service, no longer have enough people available to complete a two-month schedule. We have one paid nursery assistant for both services but safe-child policies require that at least one additional adult be present. Whether you’re a parent using the nursery or someone who enjoys spending a little time with young children, we’d love to have you. Thanks to those volunteers who previously served and also to our current volunteers, who have had to work additional shifts until we get more people on the list. Please contact Patti Courtois at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
If you are interested in being an acolyte for our Traditional services, please contact Sister Dottie at email@example.com. We will be putting together an acolyte training in the future. Parents and small children are also encouraged to help with this important ministry. Please prayerfully consider helping.
