Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study

A note about in person worship. There are still concerns about the transmission of the coronavirus. If you are in a high risk category or simply feel uncomfortable attending a worship service, please feel free to remain at home and worship with us online. Just because we are offering services does not mean that you must or should attend. Please consider the guidelines of the CDC, the council of others, and pray as you make your decisions. Pastor is always available to you for consultation.

 A Look to the Future: For the foreseeable future we will continue to meet in person for worship with a limited capacity for each service. We will adjust the number of services to fit the need. We will also continue to stream our services so people who don’t feel comfortable attending in person can do so from home. Please continue to sign-up weekly to attend services. The Sign Up Genius link will be emailed to the congregation each week for the upcoming service.  The link for this Sunday’s service, July 5th, is below.

A video of the service can be found on the same day, after the services, at both:

Electronic Giving! 

Since we have opened for services you may choose to bring your offering in person. There will be a plate set out in the narthex. However, you may continue to give electronically through bill pay, Joyful Response (paper sign-up), the Giving app on your smart phone, or the church’s website. As always, thank you for your faithfulness!

Service

Diaper Drive!  Saint Peter has partnered with Camino de Fe in a diaper drive!  We are collecting diapers, sizes 2-6, in the church narthex to help those in need.  Financial donations may also be given by visiting https://caminodefe.chruch/.

 Living in Love food pantry garden at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is alive and well and welcoming volunteers.  Please consider volunteering! A rise in food insecurity this year would surprise no one.  This is a great time to demonstrate our Christian love for our neighbors by participating in this endeavor. The garden is large enough, tasks diverse enough, and groups small enough for us to responsibly distance ourselves.  The sunshine, fresh air, and light exercise is refreshing to mind and body and seeing progress and watching green things grow, especially knowing that they will help to feed neighbors in need, is deeply satisfying.

Small teams are scheduled for as early as 7:45am.  Hours are flexible, and shifts can be added to fit diverse schedules of volunteers. Anyone with questions, desiring a tour, or having an interest in volunteering or supporting the garden in any way should contact Linda at LiLgarden@HTLCnj.net  contact Kim to get the weekly link to the Sign Up Genius.

Lambertville Food Pantry. We are gathering items for the Lambertville Food Pantry and taking it in weekly. There is a great need as the long lines at the pantry testify. The collection box will be located outside of the Church Office Doors under the overhang. So you can bring donations at any time and don’t even have to come into the church to drop them off.
