Hey everyone, look here! April 7th edition

Happy weekend St. Peter’s! We hope you are all staying warm in this chilly weather – let’s all collectively agree to pray for some nice, warm spring weather for Holy Week and Easter! We’ve got a whole lot of stuff coming up at church so let’s get right to it…

  1. This Sunday is Palm Sunday and our annual Easter Egg Hunt! A huge thank you to everyone who donated candy and to all those who helped stuff our 1300+ eggs! Our Easter Egg Hunt will take place following the 10am worship service.
  2. This week is Holy Week and we have a number of worship services! Maundy Thursday we will have services at 12pm and 7:30pm with some of our young people receiving their First Holy Communion at the 7:30pm service. Good Friday we will be participating in the 12pm community worship service at the Church on the Mall at the Plymouth Meeting Mall and we will have a service at St. Peter’s at 7:30pm. On Easter Sunday no one gets to come to church at their normal time! Worship services are at 7:30am, 9am, and 11am. We look forward to worshipping with you all throughout this blessed week!
  3. We need help with the Crucifixion drama for the 7:30pm Good Friday worship service – young or old, experienced or inexperienced, we need 6 more volunteers to help us with this deeply meaningful part of our Good Friday worship experience. If you are interested in helping or have any questions please contact Pastor Todd or Pastor Suloff.
  4. There is a whole lot of stuff going on in our Social Ministry programs! We are working on college care packages and could use the names and addresses of any students to receive care packages. There is also a box for “goodie” items in between the sanctuary and the chapel. Change for change pouches are due back on Easter.  If you don’t want to collect change would rather write a check…..no problem.  Just write on the note line that it is for “Change for change”. All proceeds go to “Camperships” to help send kids to summer camp. There is a Social Ministry Team meeting coming up on Sunday, April 23rd at 11am in the Conference Room. If you have any interest in helping out with Social Ministry it would be great to join in this meeting!! Finally, mark your calendars because we will be partnering with Outback Steakhouse again this year for another Outback Giveback on May 23rd – more details will be coming soon!
  5. Pastor Todd, at one point in his storied career, had 6 copies of the Luther DVD but over the years he has loaned them out and at this point it appears as though he now has 0 copies. Did you borrow a copy of Luther from Pastor Todd and forget to return it? Take a peek in your DVD library to check and don’t worry, there aren’t any late fees!

Well, we think that covers everything at the moment but be sure to check your email, Facebook, and the website over the next few days and weeks as we will be posting more information about all of the upcoming events, activities, and worship services and much more as we go along. Enjoy your weekends and we look forward to seeing you in worship this Sunday and throughout Holy Week.

Your fellow servant in Christ,

Pastor Suloff and Pastor Todd
