  • GROCERY CARDS ARE BACK!

    We will again be selling grocery cards in the narthex two Sunday mornings a month.  Starting in October, on the first and third Sunday of each month you will have the opportunity to purchase grocery cards and contribute to the church debt reduction. We have cards in increments of $25, $50 and $100 for Stauffer’s of Kissel Hill, Giant, Weis and Oregon Dairy.  Simply purchase the cards at face value, spend as you wish and 5% of each sale stays here at church. Pre-pandemic our contribution from card sales averaged $6,000-$7,000 a year. We all need to eat and the church benefits, it’s a win-win!

  • FUNERAL PLANNING PROGRAM

    We will be holding an informational program on What it Takes to Pre-Plan a Funeral on Wednesday, September 28th, at 3:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center. The program will be presented by Mark Burkholder, a long-time member, who works at the Snyder Funeral Home. Most of us prepare for what is possible, but seldom for the inevitable. Today, more and more people are arranging their funerals in advance of death. Pre-arranged and/or pre-funded funeral, cremation and cemetery arrangements considerably ease a family’s burden when death occurs. It can also play an integral part in financial planning. There are many reasons to pre-arrange a funeral:  To make sure an individual’s wishes are represented after their death; To protect family members and loved ones from having to make difficult decisions during an emotional time; To simplify the financial responsibilities associated with paying funeral expenses, and protect against increased costs (pre-funded funerals). There is no obligation or expectation by attending this program. It is for informational purposes only. There is a signup sheet outside the office or you can contact Betsy Linn if you plan to attend so we have enough materials to share.   Betsy.linn@stpeterslutheran.org
