We are fortunate to have a terrific staff at St. Peter's. The Vestry is reaching out to parishioners to contribute toward gifts for the church staff. If you would like to contribute toward church staff gifts this December, you may do so by: placing your contribution in a box in the Narthex, placing in the offering, or bringing it to the church office. Please include your name and write "Gift for Staff" on the envelope or memo portion on your check. The Vestry will be accepting monetary gifts from the congregation between December 2 through December 17, 2017 to be put toward Christmas gifts for our seven church staff. The staff members include: Rector, Deacon, Parish Administrator, Treasurer, Sexton, Christian Formation Director, and Organist/Choir Director. Thank you in advance for your generosity. It is very much appreciated – Thank you, St. Peter's Vestry.

CENTERING PRAYER GATHERING at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Medford NJ. (One Hartford Rd. at corner of Taunton Rd, Medford NJ 08055). Leaders are Peter Knerr and The Rev. Henrietta Lavengood Tuesday, December 12 at 7:00 PM. We will meet in the candlelit CHAPEL and continue our prayers and practice for Advent. All Curious Ones and Seekers are welcome. Last time we had a good discussion regarding what is important to us individually in Advent in addition to our Meditation and Prayer together for 20 minutes. We will have the opportunity to share our individual Calling from God this Advent. Advent traditionally has lessons of remembering why God sent the Infant Jesus and the Contemplation of Judgment and the Eternal significance of Jesus for Us. We will use one of these lessons in our prayers together.

Christmas Giving Tree: It's time to start shopping! Gift tags for the Christian Caring Center and Virtua Early Intervention will be available on the tree in the church. Please take a tag and return it with an unwrapped toy or new article of clothing for a child or teen. Please attach the tag to your unwrapped gift. Deadline for Sunday, December 17. Thank you.

Congratulations to Father Don on the 36th Anniversary of his ordination to the Priesthood. Please join us at coffee hour to thank him for his ministry to us.
