November Meeting Notes


The Worship Committee met on Tuesday, November 14th , and discussed the upcoming holiday worship services.  We will have a Christmas Eve program and are looking for volunteers to participate in the program, please contact any Worship Committee member or if you are asked, please consider being a part of this event.


Decorating the church will take place on Saturday, December 9th, starting at 9 AM. Please make plans to attend so we can get the church ready to celebrate Christ’s birth. After we decorate the church we will have some delicious chili and stew. Please come out and enjoy the fellowship and food.


The committee has noticed that the children's activity bags are in need of some updating and we are looking for a volunteer(s), that would have some fresh ideas and time to update the bags, please let a committee member know, if you can help.


Thanks to Dick B for making a video of the Confirmation Service.  To view the service please contact the church office.


Our next meeting will be Saturday, December 9th following the church decorating, and our January meeting will be Tuesday, January 9th. All are invited to join us and help plan future Worship services.

Women’s Bible Study with Shirley


Join Shirley for the monthly Women’s Bible study at noon on Thursdays. Bring a Bible and a friend. (And we will have extras of both, if you forget.)


Reminder - St. Peter now accepts electronic checks


Many people pay their bills on-line, and would prefer the convenience of electronic banking instead of donating at the collection plate.  For more details about the process, go to the St. Peter website at:

Pastor Philip’s Bible Study : Join Pastor Philip on Thursday evenings at 6:00 pm, beginning November 9. We will study the Gospel of John. All are welcome to join this study.

St. Peter Constitution and Bylaws

At the 10/15/2017 Annual Congregation Meeting, members of St. Peter Lutheran approved changes to the Bylaws and on first vote, approved changes to the Constitution. The Constitution changes require a 2nd approval (with no changes) during our October 2018 Annual Meeting. Until then, we will continue to use the 2013 Constitution, but we have 2017 updates to the Bylaws. The updated document is available on the St. Peter website or from the church office.

2018 Time & Talent Sheets

The 2018 Time & Talent sheets will be published in the church bulletins until November 26. They are also available on the website or upon request from the church office. Let us know if you are willing to assist with services, workdays, Bible studies, activity planning or long-range vision. If you want to be a part of the decisions around the church, please volunteer! In addition, St. Peter is trying to get updated contact information from members. Please complete address and phone information to share with our members in the annual report and directory. Return Time & Talent updates to the offering plate or church office by the end of November. Thanks.

Blessings to each of them!

Chili Supper Support for Hurricane Harvey Relief


The November 11 Chili Supper was a huge success. Thanks to all the workers, both St. Peter members and from the larger community. We could not do it without you. We cleared $1,900 in profits and had a great time in fellowship. This is in addition to $3500 previously donated. All profits will be sent to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Victoria to help Hurricane Harvey victims. This congregation is coordinating relief supplies and workers. They support various churches and faith-based efforts (of all denominations) from Victoria to Corpus Christi. This area is highly rural and lacks significant infrastructure to manage the recovery efforts. Thanks to all who donated time and money!
