Serving Your Neighbor

No source found

The start of September brings two great opportunities for you and the family to serve your neighbor.

As you get back into the Fall schedule you may have a lot on your calendar, but perhaps you’re looking into ways to be neighborly and offer the love of Jesus to another. Check out some easy ways that you can be the change that you long to see in the world!

 

Lydia’s Closet Doors Open Saturday September 2

Lydia’s Closet is a clothing ministry serving school-aged children of Manheim Township.

This is a great way to help serve our neighbors by either being involved in the Saturday morning distribution or by prepping the clothes on the Tuesday evening before.

The “closet” opens every first Saturday of the month from 10am-noon in the Youth Lounge. Clothing prep occurs the Tuesday prior at 6:30pm.

Community Meal  Serves The Community September 6

St. Peter’s takes part in a community meal located at Grace Lutheran Church in downtown Lancaster. Every first Wednesday of the month volunteers from St. Peter’s prepare a meal to feed about 150 people and other volunteers help to serve the meal.

This is a great way for the whole family to get involved in serving their neighbors!

Pastor of Christian Formation

I love working in a staff where we are able to use each other’s strengths for the glory of God. I am energized by the lay leaders of the church and the creative ways they can extend the mission of Jesus to congregational members and our community.

  1. Late as-usual – had slept 12 hours to make up for the late hours the other days of the week -I barely got the last cup of coffee before it went down the drain-I was so rude to come at that time- quite aware how rude I was- however-we had been invited- and just hope to maybe meet a few more of the members of the group and just sit for five or ten minutes talk to someone new- which I did-the few left wanted to leave however they were most gracious to stay a few minutes longer-and as I left -those cleaning up gave me two gifts- so I could share them with Don in the nursing home and friends who help me during the week. Thanks, Carol That was True Hospitality!
