Our Mission


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

Almighty God, your Son came into the world to free us all from sin and death. Breathe upon us the power of your Spirit, that we may be raised to new life in Christ and serve you in righteousness all our days,  through  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
