The Good Book Club for Epiphany 2019 – Forward Movement, along with partners from across the Episcopal Church, invites all Episcopalians to participate in the Good Book Club, a church-wide Bible reading initiative. The Good Book Club will focus on Paul’s Letter to the Romans, with participants reading a section of scripture each day during the Epiphany season, starting on January 7, 2019. Several organizations are partnering with Forward Movement in the Good Book Club, including the United Thank Offering, Forma, Episcopal Church Women, and The Living Church. Partner organizations are creating resources or encouraging their constituents to take part in the effort. To join in go to http://www.goodbookclub.org/. The Good Book Club is free. You can download the reading list and read Romans for no charge. For an online Good Book Club webcast group go to: https://churchnextblog.wordpress.com/the-good-book-club/ . This online course meets on Wednesday nights from 8pm – 9pm Eastern Standard Time through Zoom. Dates include: Wednesday, January 23, 30, February 6, 13, 20, 27. Zoom sessions are recorded and available to registered students at other times, so you don’t have to be present at every class. There is charge of $18.00 to join this group through the ChurchNext website.
Thank you: Many thanks to our generous parishioners who donated more than 200 gifts for children served by Oaks Integrated Care and by Virtua Early Intervention. Oaks case workers were low on gifts until St. Peter’s donations of new Christmas toys and clothes arrived. Thank you for making a difference!
Diocese of NJ hosts Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on January 21, beginning in Trinity Cathedral at 10 am. Honor the legacy and the memory of the late civil rights leader by joining your brothers and sisters from across the diocese to serve others. Following a special Eucharist in the cathedral, we will gather for a series of service projects that serve at-risk communities. It’s a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the service of others.
