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 contact the church office by email, or click here.

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)

2022 09 Rally Day Youtube Link Button.png

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! 


2023 Advent Generosity Project.png

December until January 13th


Got Blankets?

Do you have extra blankets at home that you could do without, but would really help the homeless as winter is upon us?  We are collecting items for the homeless to keep them warm, such as blankets, sweatshirts and pants, socks, and pillows.  

We are making a push to collect as much as possible before Christmas and will be delivering them to "Project Home" and "Chosen 300 Ministries."  You can bring them to church on Sundays or contact Greg Swindells (215-620-8181) to arrange a pick up at your home.
