LCMC Texas District Annual Gathering -  July 27-28, 2018 in New Braunfels

Plan to join the Texas District’s annual gathering in New Braunfels. Unlike the old ELCA, the gathering is open to all members. It is inspiring and educational. The business meeting lasts less than an hour and is optional. And this year, it will include a youth track with special youth events for junior high & high school students. We hope St. Peter will have a strong turn out. Click here for more details:

June 2018 Meeting Notes

The Worship Committee met June 12th, a discussion was started, concerning a projection/TV screens for St. Peter.  This would minimize the usage of bulletins and would be an addition for Christmas Programs and funerals.  This project was tabled for further discussion at future meetings and if you have any suggestions for or against this project, please advise a member of the worship committee.

Pastor Philip will be exchanging pulpits with Pastor Kurt Hine on July 1st; Pastor Hine will continue the sermon series on Exodus and will conduct Holy Communion at this service. Pastor Philip will be on vacation July 24th through July 31st so Pastor Dean Hamilton has graciously agreed to conduct the service on Sunday, July 29th.


Our next meeting will be Tuesday, August 14th at 5 PM, if you would like to join our committee, please come to the meeting.

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:

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.
