CLUB NEWS:

Ladies Aid decided to provide sandwiches for the homeless on a quarterly basis.  Stephanie H will sign us up for the next service date. We are collecting toiletry items (shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, combs, etc) for the homeless bags.  

We are also sewing pillow cases for Dell Children's Hospital.  See Sandy C or Vinette M for a pattern if you wish to sew some pillow cases for the children.   

Join us for a fun afternoon playing dominoes with Gladys D at Weslyan on Scenic Drive at 1:00 p.m. on June 25.  

We are planning a social outing to Homestead Heritage in Waco for Friday, November 29.  We will meet at the church at 9:00 a.m. and car pool.  This is during their fair, so they will have craft demonstrations, music, activities for children, hay rides, and ag exhibits.  If you have family visiting for Thanksgiving, invite them to join us on this adventure.      

The quilters finished hand quilting a quilt pieced by Joyce Coldewey.  They also have tied 14 quilts for Lutheran World Relief.  

June Challenge:  Be nice to someone.  Let someone go in front of you in line.  Smile at everyone you meet.

2019 LCMC Texas District Gathering, August 2 & 3 at Faith Lutheran in Seguin, Texas


The 2019 LCMC Texas District Gathering will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 1326 E. Cedar Street in Seguin, Texas on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3. The theme is, "CROSSWALK: Living as People of the Cross". The theme comes from Galatians 6:14: "But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."


The Texas District Gathering is not a theological conference for pastors. It is not a business meeting for Council members. It is an opportunity to visit with a few hundred enthusiastic Christians and hear the message about becoming disciples and helping others to become disciples. The Gathering will include events and activities for youth and adults. Speakers will challenge us to put our faith into action. Breakout sessions will allow us to learn about areas of personal interest. And worship services will lift our spirits.


More information about the event and speakers is available on the home page for the LCMC Texas website at http://www.lcmctexas.org/, or from Griffin.Teggeman@gmail.com.

 

Register and pay online at 2019LCMCTexas.eventbrite.com. Pre-register by 7/15/2019 to get a price discount. Event sign-in / registration tables open in Seguin at 12:30 on Friday for the optional adult Pre-Gathering events that begin at 1:00. Registration tables for the General Gathering will open at 4:30 on Friday and again at 7:30 am on Saturday. Everybody is invited. We look forward to a great crowd!

THANK YOU to the Fellowship team for planning and orchestrating the efforts, and to Kevin M for building the box.


Congregation members are reminded to provide gently used children’s books for regular refresh of the reading materials.

In Loving Memory…


St. Peter celebrates the lives of recently passed members, extends loving support for their families and rejoices in the knowledge that Jesus Christ conquered death and the grave. Death is not the end. It is the fulfillment of life’s journey.


The past couple months have seen the passing of several members and children of the congregation. We remember especially Georgia Brabant, Patricia Teinert and Louis Miller. May the Lord comfort their families during these times of grief.

The St. Peter Bereavement Committee offers a special THANK YOU to the Congregation for your expressions of love and care by providing salads and desserts for the Georgia Brabrandt and Louis Miller families during their times of sorrow.  

Thank you to the Committee Members who helped setup and prepare food and to all others who helped serve and clean-up.  Everyone and everything is very much appreciated.
