Welcome, and thank you for visiting Schuylkill Mission District online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of latest news, churches information and worship times, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our site.
The Schuylkill Mission District Council meets frequently to discuss and plan ministry programming to better assist the congregations of our Mission District. Our goal is to provide events and resources to uplift youth and family ministry, spirituality, evangelism, and maintain our connection with our Synod and the ELCA.
This Week's Prayer
O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life. Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Dear friends in Christ,
Some folks at St. Paul's, Orwigsburg are making masks (not N95) for area health care professionals. These masks can be used over the N95 to lengthen the life of those masks. These are approved for use.
They use cotton cloth, fusible interfacing, double folded bias tape, elastic and thread. Color and patterns on cloth are of no concern. If you would like to donate any of these items or money to buy them, especially the interfacing, tape and elastic, please contact Sue (570-617-3741) or Rob (570-617-3679) Reier to pick up these items.
If you would like to make masks, we have a pattern we all use. The easiest pattern is the YouTube link through Joann Fabrics (simple folded rectangular mask). Make them and then donate them through medical professionals you know or directly to healthcare institutions including EMS.
Thanks for the ministry we all share in this most difficult time.
The Rev. Robert and Susan Reier
members, St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Orwigsburg
