Saints Peter & Paul Food Pantry Needs Our Support
Dear Church Members,
We have an urgent call to action from the Saints Peter & Paul Food Pantry. They urgently need donations to support their efforts in providing food for the homeless individuals temporarily housed in Hamburg, along with the assistance of St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy.
We kindly request you to bring non-perishable food items and other essential supplies to the church this Sunday and for the upcoming weeks. These items will greatly benefit those in need, especially those currently residing in hotels.
Peanut butter and jelly
Paper products (plates, bowls, cups)
Toiletries (toilet paper, soap, toothbrush)
Winter outerwear (hats and gloves)
Monetary donations for items they do not have
Monetary donations can also be made to the following addresses:
Saints Peter & Paul Church Memo: Outreach 36 Pine St. Hamburg, NY 14075
St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy P.O. Box 448 Buffalo, NY 14215
FeedMore of WNY P.O. Box 5163 Buffalo, NY 14240-5163
Let us unite as a community to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Your generous contributions will help provide essential support and nourishment during this critical time.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
Adult Sunday School
John Meader’s Adult Sunday School class is meeting each Sunday at 9am in the
Parlor. Presently we are using Max Lucado’s book, Help is Here, and the
accompanying DVD to learn more about the Holy Spirit. All are welcome!
Our little pantry at Sparks of Hope is nearly empty, and our shelves are bare. Members of our recovery community rely on your generosity to see them through the hard times. Please drop off nonperishable groceries when Sparks is open, or leave them inside the pantry.
The Church office is glad to announce that services going forward will be streamed via YouTube Live, in addition to the current Facebook Live services. You can access the Youtube live stream on our Youtube Channel, or directly on our church website homepage.

ANNOUNCEMENTS CALL TO WORSHIP
We believe: The poor in spirit are blessed, and theirs is the kingdom of heaven; those who mourn are blessed, and they will be comforted; the meek are blessed, and they will inherit the earth; those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed, and they will be filled; the merciful are blessed, and they will receive mercy; the pure in heart are blessed, and they will see God; the peacemakers are blessed, and they will be called children of God; those who are persecuted for righteousness sake are blessed, and theirs is the kingdom of heaven. We believe we are blessed when people revile us and persecute us and
falsely utter all kinds of evil against us because of Jesus Christ. We shall rejoice and be glad, for our reward is great in heaven, for in the same way, they persecuted the prophets
who were before us. Amen
