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.


St. Peter: I would like to thank everyone for your prayers, cards, visits, flowers, gifts and your friendship during my recovery at the hospital, nursing home and now assisted living.  It is a wonderful feeling to know that you have so many friends and it helps in the healing process.  May God continue to bless each and every one of you for your support.  Hope to be back at St Peter soon!   – Ethel B.


Gary C: Thank you for getting the roofers back out and for cleaning out the gutters.  All your hard work is much appreciated.  – Council


Walburg Super Bowl Helpers: A very "BIG THANK YOU" to Carolyn M, Helen N and Robyn M for working the Concession Stand for the Walburg Super Bowl.  Also to Linda F, Gladys D and Elaine S for supplying cookies and brownies.  It was a lot of wind but a lot of fun working with all of you.  All was very much appreciated.  – Diane

March 13, 2018 Council Report Summary

Pastor’s Report:  The Walburg Super Bowl was a great success and gave our congregation exposure in the community.  We are developing a presence in the community and we should pray that God will allow us to expand that presence.  Lenten Services are allowing us a chance to explore God’s word from a different angle, as well as attempt a few new things in worship.  Pastor Philip encouraged all of us to make out a mission window from Will Mancini’s “God Dreams” resources.  This is something everyone should be filling out and we will be discussing it further.  The Easter Egg hunt will be held at the modular home park March 24th.  Pastor ask that we prayerfully consider how we can get started and move ahead with the Christian discipleship program “Alpha”.


Treasurer’s Report:  Total offerings for February were $16,296.12 compared to February, 2017 total of $11,420.02.  Total expenses were up $1,246.98 compared to February 2017.  The January  benevolence paid in February was $386.16 to Cross Trails Ministry; February benevolence included $580.16 paid to LCMC and $870.24 paid to Down Home Ranch.  To date, Lenten offerings are $905.00.


Committee Reports

Fellowship and Outreach:  Easter Egg Hunt is 24th of March; Breakfast will be served between Services on Easter Sunday; Easter lunch is offered after the 10:15 service; Mother/Daughter luncheon is set for May 12th at 10:30 a.m.

Worship Committee:  Selected songs.  Nothing more to report.

Property Committee:  It was reported that the new owners of the property behind the church and parsonage are clearing their side of the fence line.  It was suggested that we hire the man doing their work to clear our side.  The Council voted to spend up to $500.00 to have this done before the new fence goes in.


Old Business:  Pastor’s sound proof door is in process and should be installed soon.  Roof leaks in the gym will be addressed this month.


New Business:  We discussed the conflict of the Family Reunion, Work Day and the Easter Egg Hunt all happening on the same day.  It was decided that anyone interested could meet to clean the gym and classrooms on Wednesday, March 21st.  It will be announced.  Everything will go on as planned.  The Council voted to approve the use of the gym on September 30, 2018 for the Schneider Family Reunion; voted NO on Easter Ads; voted to approve Letters of Transfer for Ethel Domel to Faith Lutheran, Georgetown, Texas and Charlotte Branch to Trinity Lutheran in Miles, Texas; also voted for the record that Alan Barrow became a member at the same time Dorothy Barrow reinstated her membership.
