WORSHIP COMMITTEE Meets Tuesday, October 16 at 5 p.m.


The Worship committee met on Tuesday, August 14th. We discussed the budget and tabled the discussion on TV Screens for the sanctuary until the next meeting.  Hymns were selected through Sunday, November 7th.


Our next meeting will be Tuesday, October 16 at 5 PM. If you would like to join the committee or select songs for worship services, please join us at 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:

Fellowship Meeting - Next Meeting on Tuesday, September 4 at 10:15 a.m.

   At our August 7 meeting, we scheduled several upcoming events and began working on other community needs.

We are developing plans to place a ‘Free Library’ book box at the Meadow Crest manufactured home community on FM-97. We are also attempting to arrange for ESL (English as a Second Language) classes during daytime hours to serve stay-at-home mothers in this same community. More details will follow. Volunteers are needed.

The annual Chili Supper plans are underway for Saturday, October 27. Elaine is looking for help with rides to church for elderly members, and the Fellowship Team will host a Potluck lunch on Sunday, September 9. See more details below.

In addition, St. Peter will participate in the Sun City Garage Sale on Saturday, October 6.

Please join these meetings to make your ideas known, and join the events to help us make them successful.

Grandparent Day Community Pot Luck Lunch - Sunday, September 9 at 11:15 a.m.

GRANDPARENTS DAY is on Sunday September 9. We will host a community-wide pot-luck lunch following worship services. We hope for a big crowd. Bring your favorite dish and join the fellowship. Share stories about your grandparents, or even pictures of your grandchildren! There are even rumors that dominoes may appear.

Drivers Needed on September 16 & 23 to bring members to church (Sunday mornings)

Three ladies of the church need rides to church & back home each week. Elaine has been driving them, but will be out of town on 9/16 & 9/23. If you are willing to provide rides for Gladys, Evelyn and Georgia, please contact Elaine.

Annual Chili & Stew Supper with Quilt Raffle - Saturday, October 27 from 5:00 - 7:30 pm

Proceeds: This year, the proceeds will go to the Caring Place and other community charities.

Food: Make plans now to attend the Annual St. Peter Chili and Stew Supper. Eat in the Fellowship Hall or walk through and get your to-go containers. A $10.00 ticket includes chili or stew, a drink and dessert. Last year, the stew sold out fast. We will double the stew this year to prevent this from happening. We expect to have some chili and stew available for bulk purchase in the final 30 minutes.

Quilt Raffle: Ladies of the church have been busy quilting and will raffle a beautiful quilt at the supper. Look for tickets in October.

Workers: Sign-up sheets will appear by 9/30/2018. We will need folks to sell advanced tickets, sell quilt raffle tickets, arrange tables & chairs, cut vegetables, set-up cooking gear, assist with cooking the stew & chili, provide desserts, assist with parking, serve the meals and drinks, and clean-up afterwards. Elaine will organize the table and serving volunteers. Griffin will manage the tickets & cooks. We need lots of help. Please volunteer.


Bible Study Opportunities

Women’s Bible Study: The current Bible study series will be completed on Thursday, September 6 at noon. Look for further details soon on upcoming study schedules.


Pastor Philip’s Bible Study: While Pastor’s Thursday evening Bible study has temporarily concluded, look for upcoming classes on Lutheranism. The schedule should be available soon.


St. Peter Family,

Our heartfelt thanks for your prayers, words of sympathy & every kindness shown to us on behalf of Bruce Ishy. We are indeed grateful and thankful to each of you for your gifts of food & time and for the outstanding efforts of the Bereavement Committee to make Bruce’s ‘send off’ celebration a very special one for his family and many good friends. Thanks also to Pastor Philip for his visits and Communion offerings.

St. Peter Constitution and Bylaws - Final vote at October Congregation Meeting

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. Please review these documents before the Annual Meeting. Thanks.
