May Fellowship Update: Mother’s Day Celebration

We had 50 vibrant women who attended the Mother's Day Brunch.  Jarrell Home Health was taking blood pressures and gave a speech on what is available in the Jarrell area for home health care. There were stories shared by many about their mothers and grandmothers. A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who showed up to decorate and prepare food. It was a very blessed event.

LCMC Texas Disttrict 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:

April 2018 Meeting Notes


The Worship Committee met April 10 and reviewed St Peter's Lenten and Easter services. The St. Peter's choir sang for Park Place Retirement home; the residents and staff enjoyed the entertainment and request that we return.


We are making plans for Mothers' & Fathers' day, so please make plans to attend these special services.


Our next meeting will be Tuesday, June 12th 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.
