Microloan Fund Ministry
Thank you to all who gave to the Lenten Generosity Project! We are excited to have this ministry starting at TLC to give microloans to those in need through Kiva! Through Lent $2595 was gifted, and thanks to the anonymous donor for doubling the gifts through Easter for a total of $5190!
Thank you for Living Generously!
We will continue to accept donations to this ministry so that we may continue to transform God's world!
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.

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)

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.

RALLY DAY 2022
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!
