Please join us in our special observance of this day.

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.

Thanksgiving Food Drive: St. Peter's Thanksgiving food drive for the Christian Caring Center runs through November 16. Suggestions include canned vegetables, gravy mix, potato mix, cranberry sauce, pie filling, and pre-packaged pie crusts. Donation bins are in the narthex. To provide a meal for an entire family, please send a $35 check (payable to Christian Caring Center) to the church office or place it in the collection plate. No frozen turkeys, please; the CCC does not have the freezer capacity. Supermarket gift cards and certificates for free turkeys are appreciated. Thank you!

ChildFund Christmas: Thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to St. Peter's Christmas gift collection for Rubino and Thiago. This year we collected $276, which will be divided equally between them. Their families will use the money to buy them clothes, shoes, backpacks, books, and other much-needed items. Thank you!

Daylight savings time ends next Sunday, November 4. Make sure to "fall back" on Saturday night. Otherwise, you will be very early for church on Sunday morning.
