LADIES AID - Tuesday, February 4 at 11:00 a.m.

Join us at our February 4 meeting @ 11:00 a.m. and then stay for Golden Oldies pot luck and dominoes.  

Check out the Cowboy Trip Around the World Quilt, hanging in the gym.  Chances for the quilt are being sold through Ladies Aid from now until the draw at the Chili Supper on February 22.  Monies received from the sale of this quilt are used to purchase supplies for our LWR quilts and for Ladies Aid benevolence.  The St. Peter Quilters thank you for your support.    

For our January benevolence, Ladies Aid voted to send $200 to Meals on Wheels and made 60 sandwiches for Helping Hands of Georgetown.   We will host fellowship following worship services on January 12 and February 9.  The St. Peter Quilters have completed 80 quilts for LWR and thank you for supporting the raffle of the Cowboy Trip Around the World. Thanks also to Brenda T who donated the fabrics for the quilt top.  Ladies Aid will again purchase alter flowers quarterly next year.  January Challenge:  Time for Resolutions-Take a vow of positivity.

Join us for Dominoes with Gladys D on Tuesday, January 28 at 1 p.m.  Ladies and gents are invited.   

Join us on an outing to hear the Williamson County Symphony on March 14 at the Georgetown High School Klett Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m.  All are invited to join Ladies Aid on this adventure.  This is a free concert, but Williamson County Symphony does ask for a donation.

Golden Oldies’ Lunch - Noon on Tuesday, February 4


The Golden Oldies will meet February 4th, at Noon for a potluck lunch and games. Invite a friend and join in the fun, food and fellowship.



Pastor’s Sermons


While we hope you will join us for worship and Bible studies, Pastor Philip and Amy have recorded and posted numerous sermons and Bible studies to either Facebook or YouTube. Search for “St. Peter Lutheran Church Walburg, TX”.


To make these videos easier to find, links to recent documents are periodically added to this website at the following link:  http://stpeterwalburg.org/recordings.html



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:

 Women’s Bible Study - will meet on Thursday at Noon through October 24


This Bible study will last 6 weeks, and the book is around $10.  There is no video with this series and no lecture - just Bible study and discussion.  See Vinette M to get your copy of the study materials. Eat at home or bring a lunch and join us as we discuss Prayer and Listening.


Most of us have experienced the "laundry list" phase of spiritual life, in which praying means giving God an agenda of needs to handle.  How do we move to having real conversation with God?  How do we hear what God is saying back to us?  How can we make our experience of God being with us part of everyday life?  This [Bible study] covers the disciplines of prayer and of practicing God's presence.  Going deeper in those areas help us to draw closer to God in everything we do.  In the words of Shirley E: Join us for fun, fellowship, and food from God's Word.  


Pastor’s Book Study at 6:00 p.m. through 12/19/19 – on C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity


Pastor Phil is hosting a study series on the C.S. Lewis’ classic book: Mere Christianity. This wonderful book helps the Christian understand basic Christian belief. Please purchase your own books. They are generally available at Half Price Books or online at Christainbook.com & Amazon.com. Please join us for this study.

Note: No book study on 12/26/19 or 1/2/20.
