Senior Ministry – Soup and Sandwich Luncheon

The next scheduled Senior Ministry event will be a Soup and Sandwich Luncheon to be held on Sunday, March 4th, at 1PM, at St. Thomas Lutheran Church. A soup and sandwich menu will be provided (as well as delicious desserts).  Seniors from the community are invited to attend.  If you know of someone interested or interested yourself in attending, please call the church office at 732-477-5533 so we can keep a count of the number of attendees.  Help is always needed.  Please check the kiosk in the narthex to see how you can help this thriving ministry.

Advent Family Pot-Luck and Craft

Advent is a joyous season and, of course, a very busy one.  So, let’s set aside some time to spend together at the Advent Family Pot-Luck Lunch and Craft to celebrate the season.  Please sign up in the Narthex and bring a pot-luck dish to church on Sunday, December 3rd.  We will begin immediately after the 11:30AM service. Watch the first day notes for further information.

Boscov’s Shopping Passes

We know it’s early.  However, we are asking you to think Christmas!  The very popular Boscov’s Shopping Day is Tuesday, October 16th.  The shopping passes are already on sale here at St. Thomas Lutheran Church.  The cost for each pass is $5 (which is going towards repair projects) and it entitles you to 25% off your purchases that day.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could finish all your Christmas shopping in October for 25% off your purchases?  If that sounds good to you, please contact the church office to purchase your $5 pass.  The $5 passes are good at all Boscov’s store locations.

Even if you are not a mall shopper, the pass is a $5 donation towards repair projects and you have a chance to win prizes from Boscov’s.

“Summer” Service Times

Starting Sunday, May 27, 2018, St. Thomas Lutheran Church will be going to a one worship service schedule (for the Summer only) on Sundays at 10AM.  Please note that the Saturday service will remain at the same time (5:30PM).  The “Summer” service would be a blended service combining elements of the “traditional” and “contemporary” services. Before the 10AM service, starting at 9AM, there will be a time of fellowship (Coffee Hour) in Luther Hall with light refreshments such as iced tea, lemonade, and cookies.  This “Summer” service schedule will run through Sunday, September 2, 2018.

The regular worship schedule will resume with “Rally Day” on Sunday, September 9, 2018.
