Hi Folks.  Here are some news items for the coming week.

MID-WEEK LENTEN SERVICES

Mid-week outdoor, in-person Lenten services continue tonight (March 10) at 7:00 p.m.  We will gather under and around the church portico at the main entrance to the church building.  Services will be brief with a short liturgy, the offering of communion and a brief reflection on the theme of the day.  We hope you will consider joining us for these safe expressions of communal worship.

HOLY WEEK & EASTER SUNDAY INFORMATION PAGES

Please visit our Holy Week and Easter Sunday information pages for early news on our worship plans for Palm Sunday, Triduum, and Easter Sunday worship services.

TITHE YOUR STIMULUS

Stimulus check funds will soon be arriving in your mailbox or checking account from our government leaders.  We recognize that for some of you these checks come at a time when you are in need of help due to changes in employment.  But for others, they are “found money” and are not a necessary source of funds for our household budgets.  With that in mind, Congregation Council has “Tithed” their stimulus checks, donating 10% of their check amount to St. Peter’s for use in local ministries that are in need.  Council has collected more than $1,000 to start off this fund, which will support three local ministry organizations:  Central PA Food Bank, Homes for Hope and Water Street Mission.  If you would like to add a bit of support to these ministries, please make checks out to St. Peter’s with the memo “Tithe Your Stimulus.”

Rev. Craig Ross

Senior Pastor

The vibrancy of life here at St. Peter’s makes my service on our staff a joy and privilege. Visitation, teaching and preaching are the ministries that feed my pastoral identity, as together our staff and lay members share in our missional calling … Building a community of faith by God’s grace.
