July food drive - Suggested donations for July include pancake mix, syrup, oatmeal, cereal, and canned fruit. As always, other items are also welcome. Thank you very much for your continued support of our food drive for the people served by the Christian Caring Center.

Grocery shopping with a cash card? Try it, you’ll like it!  The International Outreach Team thanks those who faithfully support St. Peter’s companionship with Redemption School, Haiti, by purchasing and using Acme or ShopRite cards. Both cards are available for sale after all services in denominations of $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00.

Sunday School 2018-2019:  As we plan for the 2018-2019 Sunday School year we are in need of teachers for Grades 1-3 and 4-6.  Each grade has 2 teams of 2 teachers who team-teach every other week so that no one is teaching alone in a class.  Curriculum is supplied and as much support and resources as you need is given by your Director of Christian Formation, Sue Legnani.

We also need a teacher and helpers in the Godly Play room (Pre-K to Kindergarten).  Helpers assist the teacher, who is the story teller, by helping the children find and use the materials in the room, help with snack and with getting the children settled for the lesson time.  Training will be given before the start of Sunday School on Sept. 8th.

Finally, we always need folks to watch children in the Nursery (age birth to three years old).  The more Nursery volunteers we have the fewer times you will serve in the Nursery.  This is an important service for parents of young children and a great way for teens to work on community service for school or Scouts.  An orientation to the Nursery will be given to acquaint new volunteers before they are placed on the schedule.

For more information please contact Sue Legnani at slegnani@stpetersmedford.org  or 609-654-2963.

Join us for a Summer Cook Out to bid farewell and thank Father Salmon for his service on Sunday, July 28th 4pm – 6pm. We will have burgers and hot dogs, games and music and an outreach project.  Picnic will be held in the back of the church building.  Please bring a side dish or dessert.

Operation Fill-a-Backpack: We’re collecting school supplies and backpacks for children served by Oaks Integrated Care. Please help fill the labeled bin in the narthex July 21-August 11. Suggestions include backpack for boy or girl, insulated lunch bag, organizers and binders, pens, markers, highlighters, pencils, erasers, notebooks, loose-leaf paper, rulers, scissors, glue sticks, index cards, book covers, report folders, calculators, tissue packets and hand sanitizers. Thanks for your support!

Rutger’s Reading Classes will again be using our facility on Fridays and Saturdays.  Please do not disturb these classes.  Thank you.

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!
