Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day
Ruth's Harvest is an ecumenical ministry providing food-filled backpacks for children in Gettysburg whose families experience food insufficiency. This ministry has just recently begun and is feeding over 100 kids. LTSG is signed up to provide volunteers, and we need your help for Oct. 13, from 9-11am at Christ Church Parish House. We will meet at the seminary and either walk or ride together, depending on the weather. To sign up, please send an email to Jane (firstname.lastname@example.org). You will be contacted with further information for that day. Want to be a part of this growing ministry, but can't make it that day? Send an email and you will be put on a list of potential volunteers for our next Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day.
A big thanks to all who helped with setting up the Refectory for the dance last Friday night. It was truly a case of "many hands makes light work.”
You are welcome to share Advent stars
In November LTSG will send out our Advent prayer stars to all our constituencies. This devotional is compiled with prayers from the heart by our students, staff, faculty, alums and board members. The devotional is easy to share with others, such as those on internship, doing teaching parish, or if you wish to share with your home congregation. Bulk orders for our Advent stars can be made through October 1. Just email Advancement@Ltsg.edu with the quantity needed, the name and contact information for the congregation, and whether you will deliver or need the stars mailed.
