Summertime...and the living is easy when you use ShopRite & Acme Cards for your grocery shopping.

A BIG thank you goes to the volunteers who helped with our S.P.Y. Parable VBS that was held from July 9-11. This year 17 children from St. Peter's, Grace Episcopal Church, Pemberton, Holy Eucharist RC Church, Immanuel Baptist Church, and the general Medford area attended. They enjoyed music; three parables of Jesus (the mustard seed, the pearl of great price and the yeast), games; snacks and crafts each day. We would like to thank the following volunteers from St. Peter's who made this such a success. They are: Tiffany Myers and Brendan Moore who developed and led the music at the beginning and end of each evening; Jenn Brownlee and Jenn Connelly who developed the crafts around each day's theme; Barb LaRue who led the games; Tina Sunlitis who was our story teller using the Parable Boxes from our Godly Play curriculum; Steve Miller and Ellie Myers, our "spies", who revealed each day's clues and created a little mayhem to liven up each session; Dcn Helen who helped with registration; Kelly Wu who came up with our themed snack each day and last but not least Jack Miller and Loren Manni who were always happy to help wherever they were needed. Thank you for your help and support of this ministry.
