A WORD ABOUT ST. PETER'S RESPONSE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK:

Friends,

In light of COVID-19, and in response to Governor Tom Wolf's "stay-at-home" order issued April 1, 2020, St. Peter's United Methodist Church, Riverside, is closed indefinitely.

For us, closing means suspending all activities on our campus. This includes meetings, the church office, and in-person worship are all suspended until until the "stay-at-home" order is lifted.

I will be posting some devotionals here and on our Facebook page. I will also be working on streaming a brief worship service each week on Sunday mornings.

I pray that all of you stay safe and healthy during these trying times.


Peace and blessings,
Pastor Victoria

 

During this time of "social distancing" and "isolation," we are reminded that the Church is NOT the building. We, the people ARE THE CHURCH! As Christians, we are "God's Army on Deployment" in ministry. Call and check on one another; offer assistance if you are able, such as picking up a few groceries or prescriptions for an elderly neighbor. This is a GREAT time to minister to others. If you haven't seen any of Woody Wolfe's videos on Facebook, you are really missing a great ministry! Thank you, Woody, for your faithfulness in service and for helping make the time we are apart a little more pleasant. We look forward to seeing more of your videos in the days and weeks to come.

Unfortunately, not being in "physical worship" each week, it is easy to forget to remember your gifts, tithes, and offerings to the church. You may continue to give and support the ministry of St. Peter's in any of the following ways.

1. Mail your gift to the church:                         

 St. Peter's United Methodist Church                                 PO Box 428, Riverside, PA 17868

2. Sign-up for electronic giving. Your contribution is automatically deducted from your checking or savings account and deposited in the church's bank account via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). You may currently have various payments (electric bill, phone bill, car payment, etc.) automatically deducted from your account. Electronic giving works exactly the same way. If you would like to sign-up for Electronic Giving, please contact Melissa Newman in the church office via e-mail at stpetesumc@verizon.net or by phone at (570) 275-1341. Melissa is stopping in the office for a couple of hours on Monday mornings, usually 10:30 am - noon, to take care of any mail or defer any items of importance to Pastor Victoria. Melissa will be happy to mail you an application for Electronic Giving. You can then complete it and return it by mail to the church office for processing.

3. Scan the QR code below or click on the "Give Online" button to give a one-time gift online.

We thank those of you who have faithfully mailed in your tithes and offerings during the last few weeks, and those who currently participate in Electronic Giving. Thank you for your continued support of the ministry of St. Peter's United Methodist Church.
