Ecumenical Blessing of the Animals at Freedom Park Today - Together with Medford United Methodist Church and Lord of Life Lutheran Church, St. Peter's invites everyone to bring their pets to Freedom Park today (Sunday) at 2pm for a short service and blessing of our pets. Hope to see you there!

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.

Millennial Pumpkin Picking! Our St. Peter's Millennial group will be taking a trip to Johnson's farm on Sunday October 21 after the 10:15 service for some fall fun and pumpkin picking!

Christmas for Thiago and Rubino: It's time for our ChildFund Christmas collection. ChildFund requests St. Peter's monetary donation in October to provide gifts for Rubino in Bolivia and Thiago in Brazil. Both children are in need of new clothing and shoes, books, and groceries for themselves and their families. We cannot send packages because of gift taxes imposed by the receiving countries. Cash, coin, and checks (payable to St. Peter's Church) are appreciated. A donation box is in the narthex. Thank you!

SOAR met in September at the Medport Diner. The program consisted of the 3 F's: Food, Fellowship and Faith. We hope to repeat it this on October 9th at 12:30PM.
We will meet at Angelo's restaurant in Mt. Laurel. Please bring your appetite, your ideas for next time and your sense of humor!!
