Please excuse the dust in the Education Building


Renovations are underway in the Education Building. Some walls have been modified. Carpet will be removed, walls painted and new flooring installed. These were approved by the congregation in October. Hope to complete them all soon and have a fresh, new look. Come see. Volunteers welcome!

Photo Directory Update


The long awaited St. Peter 2016 Picture Directory is available for pick-up at the church. Be sure to get your copy and get to know the names & faces of our worship family.


The 2017 LCMC Texas District Gathering was held on July 28-29 in Taylor, and St. Peter had 4 members attending.


The theme was 'Be Fruitful and Multiply'. The theme was that Christ’s Church is not about ‘buildings’ - or even about individual congregations. The Church is about individual relationships and about reaching every person in the world with the Gospel. In Matthew 28:10-20, we are called to ‘Go’ rather than to ‘Ask others to Come’. This is the Mission of LCMC. Expect to hear more in the coming months.

Summer Bible Study with Quinton


Join Quinton for the remaining sessions of a 6-part study on the division of Israel’s Old Testament monarchy, beginning with 1 Kings chapters 9 to 11.

Meetings will be in the Education Building from 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. on the following Thursdays:  July 13 & 27, and August 10 & 24.


Hold August 31 in case it is needed.

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:

Members of St. Peter:

 

I would like to thank you for your outpouring love and support on my retirement. Would like to express my appreciation for the retirement cake and who ever outlined my drive way with the sign happy retirement, both brought joy in my heart. Elaine S

To our family and friends at St. Peter:                                                       


We sincerely appreciate the numerous acts of kindness extended to us during Margaret's long illness and throughout these last days as we mourn her passing. Your kind words, sweet cards, generous memorials and tender hugs meant so much to all of us.  


To Pastor Daniels, thank you so much for the support and care that you showed to Margaret during her last year and that you have shown to us as we deal with our loss.  Thank you also for the beautiful words of comfort said during the funeral service.  


A sincere thank you to Bonnie, Marvin, Mary and to the choir for their beautiful contribution of music to the service.  Margaret loved music and she loved praising the Lord in song.


To all of you that spent so many hours preparing for and cleaning up after the reception - we can't thank you enough.  The reception gave the family time to visit with our loved ones and to share special memories of Margaret with family and friends.  This time really meant a lot to us and helped to give us peace and comfort.


Margaret was a member of St. Peter for nearly seventy years and she loved this church and she loved the people here.  If she were here to extend a hug or give you her famous smile, she certainly would.  She would be so humbled by the love, support and acts of caring that you showed to us on her behalf.


From the bottom of our hearts, we again say "Thank You".  May God bless you and keep you in His care.

The family of Margaret Lehmann
