Hey Everyone, Look Here! February 2 Edition

Hi everyone, we hope this post finds you well! Just a few important announcements and information for the upcoming weekend here at church…

  1. Soups on! We will continue our “Souper Bowl” Tradition this Sunday, February 5th. All our amazing cooks will be making their delicious soups to sell after both worship services.  Homemade soups include minestrone – chicken noodle – seafood chowder –  turkey chili – and many more…all freshly made.  Soups will be available to purchase in Fellowship hall. Some will be frozen for you to toss in the freezer to enjoy if it ever snows again – some will be fresh in containers to take home. Come to fellowship hall and stock up! Proceeds go to support our Social Ministry programs. For those volunteers making soup Jan Gera says, “many of you have contacted me in church or called to volunteer. THANK YOU. Make that soup! The Soup containers are in the kitchen to be filled. Ed Devitt is freezing his, Marge is making hers fresh.  It’s up to you.”  Please contact Jan Gera with any questions.
  2. Also this Sunday, February 5th our Children, Youth, and Family Ministry Team will be selling hoagies to support our ministries here at St. Peter’s. This year we are not be taking orders but will be simply making Italian, Ham & Cheese, Turkey, and Cheese hoagies that you can purchase the day of the sale after worship. All hoagies are made with lettuce, tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper. The cost of the hoagies will be $7 each. If you would like to help with the hoagie sale we will be starting our work at 8:30am down in the kitchen. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Suloff and thank you in advance for enjoying a hoagie and supporting our ministries here at St. Peter’s!
  3. In case you missed it, The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), has issued a pastoral message addressing President Trump’s executive order to restrict entry by refugees and visitors into the United States from seven predominately Muslim countries. You can read her full message here.
  4. You can also learn about the interfaith letter supporting refugee resettlement that Bishop Eaton, Bishop Burkat, Pastor Suloff, and hundreds of other religious leaders signed here.
  5. All are invited to attend this Friday night’s concert at Gwynedd Mercy University which will celebrate Black History and Women in Music. The show will highlight women composers of all ethnic backgrounds. You will hear works by local and national artist such as Ruth Kiple, Kendrah Butler- Waters, the great Trudy Pitts, Dottie Rambo, J. Rosamond Johnson and many others. This concert has something for everyone including genres of Jazz, Broadway, classical and Spirituals.

  6. Join us on Wednesday, February 8thas we again partner with Christ Lutheran Church of Oreland for Pub Theology Night at our new meeting place, The Broad Axe Tavern on Route 73 in Amber at 6:30pm for faith, fellowship, food and more. If you plan on attending please RSVP to Pastor Suloff or the church office by Tuesday, February 7th so that we can be sure to reserve enough space at The Broad Axe. Our discussion questions will be available on the church website a few days before we meet.

We think this covers everything at the moment. A big thank you to all of volunteers who share their time and gifts for all these events and a big thank you to all for supporting our ministries and helping us share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ with others. See you all on Sunday!
