Thank you to all who donated!


Temple Lutheran Church has chosen to raise funds for the Tatarchuk-Gadzhaman family who recently moved to Havertown from war-torn Ukraine. Olga and Alex are trying to bring Olga's parents, Igor and Elena, safely to the United States so that her three young children can be reunited with their grandparents.


100% of everything donated will go towards getting them set up with an apartment while they learn English and look for jobs in the U.S.

Friends, Talk and Coffee combine to make us think and feel.

We have been exploring questions that people in the class are asking.

Come join us,

"What is universal salvation? And do Lutherans believe in it?"

"When we die is it because God called us (home)?"

"What is forgiveness in God's view? Is forgiveness a law (requirement)?"

'How does law distract us from God (and God's true will for us)?"

"What happens to people who never had the chance to be baptized?"

Discussion and fellowship every Sunday at 9:00 a.m.


In Person (in the café) or on Zoom.  Coffee and Tea available.

Sponsoring Altar Flowers

Altar flowers are a great way to beautify the sanctuary and remind your fellow worshipers of the new life that Jesus brings. They are also a great way to commemorate an event near a specific date, or honor/remember someone close to your heart.  You can now sponsor altar flowers for a specific week.

To sponsor.

Temple Goes Solar

Wednesday, July 28, 2021 Temple Lutheran, Havertown, cut the ribbon on a new 44kW solar array, installed with the help of Solarize DelCo, an all volunteer program of neighbors helping neighbors to go solar. The electricity produced by the panels is enough to offset 100 percent of Temple's annual electricity usage and eliminate 24 tons of carbon emissions each year. (Photo by Rev. Matt Staniz)

Sunday September 18


Live Generously!

On September 18th, Rally Day was held at Temple Lutheran Church. This celebrates the start of the church calendar year and marks the beginning of many of our ministries here at TLC.

This year's carnival had games and activities where children could win tickets.

Pastor Tim heard there was a need for school supplies by Child Guidance Resource Center for a fair they hold to make sure children in need have these items for the start of school.

Thanks to an anonymous donor, Thrivent Financial, and the attendees of our carnival, Pastor Tim delivered pens, pencils, glue, notebooks, folders and more!
