Blessed Bundles baby supplies program
Lutheran Church of Our Saviour (1570 Clay Pike, North Huntingdon, PA 15642) is proud to offer "Blessed Bundles" - an exciting program which offers new and gently used baby supplies to individuals in the local community. Blessed Bundles will be collecting and distributing items such as diapers, baby wipes, baby clothes (up to size 8), baby/toddler toys and equipment, and other baby supplies. Items may vary and will be available as they are donated to Blessed Bundles. Blessed Bundles will distribute supplies on the third Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Worry Monsters for Uvalde Students
On May 24th, 2022, the world changed for the students of Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas when a gunman entered their school and opened fire killing 19 students and 2 teachers. Seventeen others were wounded. As a response to this tragedy, the PLUM Churches joined together to raise funds to purchase Worry Monsters. The Worry Monsters are stuffed animals that have mouths that zipper open and closed. The students can write their worries on a piece of paper and “feed” them to the monsters. School counselors make regular use of these monsters during their sessions with the students to help them deal with anxiety. As a group of 10 churches, PLUM was able to raise enough funds to purchase 120 Worry Monsters! Thirteen monsters were delivered to the surviving students who were injured in the shooting. The remaining monsters have been sent to the superintendent’s assistant, Ms. Mikka Sanchez to pass along to the Uvalde School counselors. The school counselors will pass them out to the students with the most need. I wanted to express my sincere thanks to all the members of the Plum churches for joining in with the Lutheran Church of Our Saviour in this very successful mission project. Our initial goal was to raise enough funds to sponsor 30 monsters. When all the other PLUM churches joined in, we set the goal at 50 monsters. Through the grace of God and the kindness and compassion of the PLUM members, we were able to significantly surpass our goal helping so many more students work though this tragedy.

On Sunday, February 18, 2018, we voted to join the Pittsburgh Lutheran United Ministries (PLUM) as a permanent member. Our vote will be submitted to the PLUM Board at the April 22 PLUM Board meeting. PLUM will provide our pastoral leadership, but we still need to perform the church 'office' functions, as well as maintain our church building and grounds. Contact the church office, if you need any pastoral care (wedding, funeral, hospital visits, etc.)
