Summertime...and the living is easy when you use ShopRite & Acme Cards for your grocery shopping. Cards are available for sale in the narthex following all services and are redeemable for full face value. St. Peter's receives 5% of each purchase to help fund faculty salaries and other needs at Redemption School, Gonaives, Haiti. Thank you.

June food drive - Suggested donations for June include beef stew, ravioli, chili, tuna and other canned meat and vegetables. 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.

Your Vestry presently is focused on improving and fixing the LIGHTING at St. Peter's both INSIDE and OUTSIDE our buildings. Please become part of the team to beautify and improve our facilities!
Our Goal is to raise $12,500 for these projects. WE NEED YOU TO HELP LIGHT THE WAY! Make checks payable to St. Peter's. Any questions, contact John Colaianni.

SAVE THE DATE: July 9th-11th (Monday-Wednesday) 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. This year our VBS will be three days of SPYing on the parables of Jesus. This creative, interactive program is designed to teach children about three of Jesus' parables: The mustard Seed, The Pearl of Great Price, The Yeast in flour. We will celebrate the mysteries and gifts that God gives us through the parable Jesus taught. Each day in our opening celebration the children will be given clues to help unlock the lesson hidden in these multi-layered stories and we will use our activities, crafts and a service projects to learn how to apply these lesson to our daily lives. Don't miss the fun!

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