What's Happening at Temple.

This week is the 2nd of 2 discussions about Ruth. We read it last week and began talking about it. We will talk about why the story was written in 450 BC about an event in 1500 BC had such resonance that it got into the Bible. It has to do with anti-antisemitism, closed religious understanding, prejudice and the importance of family.


Join us for discussion and fellowship every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. In Person (in the café) or on Zoom.  Coffee and Tea available.

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! 




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.

Generation to Generation Campaign

Our Generation to Generation Campaign will be ongoing until our goal of $250,000 is met. We will use this money to lessen the debt that has occurred from work done to prolong the life of the church.

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)
