October food drive - Suggested donations for October 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.

ShopRite & Acme cards continue to be 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.

Thank you to everyone who supported the CROP walk by donating and/or walking! We raised $354 through both in person collections and online donations and had a total of 3 walkers from St. Peter's. The money we raised is enough to provide a community seed bank plus 222 pounds of food for those in need both locally and abroad! Thank you again for your great support!

Millennial Pumpkin Picking! Our St. Peter's Millennial group will be taking a trip to Johnson's farm TODAY after the 10:15 service for some fall fun and pumpkin picking! We will be meeting at Medport Diner around noon, then will head to Johnson's afterwards. Please contact Beckie with any questions! 856-313-9325

Please join us in a five week course looking at Civil Discourse beginning on Oct 21 at 9:00 in the Chapel. The curriculum was designed by the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations to help us understand civil discourse as a primary strategy for learning from each other. Please contact Ken Carpinelli with any questions.

International Outreach Team interactive bulletin board: The cost of an education at Redemption School is inexpensive to us but is more than many Haitians can afford. How valuable has your education been to you? Stop by our bulletin board in Williams Hall, take a post-it note, and share why you think education is important. Thank you for participating, and thank you for your support of Redemption School.

Vestry Transition Board. Is there a prayer, verse from the Bible, or a hymn that encourages you in challenging times? Share it with us by writing it on one of the paper "clouds" on our "St. Peter's In Transition" bulletin board, as a reminder to us all to trust in God.

Acolyte Beginner Training - There will be a training session for new acolytes TODAY following the 10:15 AM service. If you are interested in being an acolyte please contact Jack Hobson by text (609-504-0432) or email (

ChildFund Christmas: Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to St. Peter's Christmas gift collection for Rubino and Thiago.
