As we plan for the 2019-2020 Christian Formation year we are in need of volunteers to teach in our Sunday School from ages 3 through 5th grade and the J2A class (grades 6-7).  All volunteers will be trained and material is supplied.  We also need volunteers to staff the Nursery during the 10:15 service.  Our Nursery is located in the hallway just outside of the Narthex.  For more information please contact Sue Legnani (slegnani@stpetersmedford. org).  The ministry of Christian Formation belongs to all of us at St. Peter’s as its mission is to train Disciples of Jesus to go into the world to live out and spread his message of love.


Name tags:  To help Reverend Valerie learn our names, please begin to wear your name tag.  Not only will she be able to learn our names, maybe you'll learn the name of another parishioner, too!  Name tags are hanging on the large board in the narthex.  If you do not have a name tag, please contact the office.  At the end of the service, please return your name tag to the basket on the floor in front of the board.  Thank you!


Fill-a-Backpack Thank You: Thanks to everyone who donated so generously to Operation Fill-a-Backpack benefiting Oaks Integrated Care. This was St. Peter's largest-ever collection of school supplies and backpacks for at-risk children in Burlington County.
