Prince of Peace Lutheran Church Scholarship Application


Wurffel Fund College Aid Available
Financial aid for college students is now available through the Karl, John, Elizabeth Wurffel Memorial Fund. The aid will be provided in the form of student loans. While the amount of funds available is limited, Lutheran students are encouraged to apply. Terms for the loans are very beneficial to the recipients. Eligibility is described as follows:

“Any member of a NJ Synod, ELCA, congregation planning to attend or enrolled in a matriculated program of study in an accredited 4-year or 2-year college or university may apply. Loans are for undergraduate study only.

Priority of consideration is given on the basis of activity in the life of the church as described by the recommendation letter of the applicant’s pastor and on the basis of need. Priority is given first to students attending any ELCA Lutheran College or University, and then to any accredited 2-year or 4-year university.”

Please contact the church office to obtain the application and letter of recommendation. Applications are also available in the Narthex. Applications must be postmarked no later than June 15,2016.

Social Action News – By Evelyn Passante

THANK YOU— THANK YOU— THANK YOU

2017 was another busy year for our Social Action ministry as we try to do the Lord’s will by reaching out to others.

We recently sent $136 from the children’s sermon jar to Lutheran World Relief- USA Hurricane aid.

  • $7500 was collected for the World Hunger Appeal. Now we have 15 cows on our front lawn! WHA wrote, “Thanks to you, together we’re working for justice and peace in the USA and more than 60 countries around the world.
  •  Children’s coats, hats, gloves, pajamas and toys were given to one family. The Grandmother wrote, “The children loved everything and had a wonderful Christmas.”
  • $170 in gift cards were given to Bergen County Office for Children. “This season was made joyous for the children of the families we serve.”
  •  $300 in gift cards were given to the Center for Safety and Change (formerly Shelter Our Sisters). These were deeply appreciated.
  •  In collaboration with St Pius, $1000 in sweat suits, underwear, socks, toiletries.. were given to the Hackensack homeless shelter. They wrote, “By collaborating with St Pius Church, you provided us with exactly what we needed. With this donation, we can replenish specific items we were completely out of.”
  • Shop Rite gift cards were given to families in need.

Prince of Peace did all of this in addition to working with Rockland Psychiatric Center patients, and feeding the homeless as part of Family promise, and stocking up the food banks. Prince of Peace might be small but we are mighty in doing the Lord’s will. Please join us.

The Food Pantry is in need of the following items: Cereal, rice, oatmeal, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, pasta sauce, canned fruit, granola bars, pancake mix and syrup. All items can be placed in the box outside the preschool entrance.

Any questions, please call Evelyn Passante at 201-768-0355 or email evelynpassante@gmail.com.

 


Holy cow!  The herd is growing!

So far, we have collected $6,000 for the World Hunger Appeal as    evidenced by the 10 colorful cows on our front lawn. Not only does the WHA give out food, they give out small business loans, help build food pantries, support eye clinics, and do many other good works. So we’ll continue to collect money for the WHA throughout the year.  If you have any questions about the above, contact Evelyn Passante at 201-768-0355 or evelynpassante@aol.com.
