LADIES AID - Tuesday, March 5 at 11:00 a.m.

Join us at our March 5 meeting @ 11:00 a.m. and then stay for Golden Oldies pot luck and dominoes.

Outreach: In February, Ladies Aid voted to send up to $500 to purchase chairs for the Fellowship Hall. Our March benevolence will include prizes for the Easter Egg Hunt at the Mobile Home Park. In April, we will be taking part in the Sun City Garage Sale. (Begin your search for items to donate to our garage sale. We need your support.)  

Accomplishments: The St. Peter Quilters have completed 80 quilts for LWR. The Garden Maze quilt sold for $350 at the Valentine lunch. A big thank you goes out to Gary and Marie Combs for their continued support of our quilting projects.  

Projects: Ladies Aid discussed service projects for the year. One project included collecting items for the homeless such as duffel bags, large clothes, work gloves, lawn furniture, camping gear, and tents.  If you have any items that might work, contact Ann S.  A second project was to make sack lunches for the homeless. A third project included making pillowcases for the children's hospital.  If you are interested in helping with any of these projects, contact a member of Ladies Aid. The February challenge was to show love for neighbors by taking them a baked cookie or a card.

Event-1: Holy Ghost Lutheran Church in Fredericksburg is hosting a Women's Spring Gathering on March 16.  This is ideal for ladies of NALC and LCMC congregations.  If you are interested in attending, contact Vinette M.   

Event-2: All are invited to join us for an evening with the Williamson County Symphony on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.  The performance will be in the Klett Performing Arts Center at Georgetown High School.  Email Vinette M if you wish to sit with the group from St. Peter.

St. Peter Church Council Summary - Meeting of February 12, 2019




St. Peter recently made donations to "Food for Friends" and we wanted to share what the organization does for our community.


The organization delivers noon meals on Fridays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to the elderly, home bound, homeless and those unable to care for themselves in the Bartlett, Granger, Davilla, Walburg and Weir area.  They have been doing this for 10 years and currently serve 229 people in these areas.


Volunteers prepare meals on Thursdays and deliver on Friday. If anyone is interested in volunteering they are located at 13200 FM 972 Granger or you can call Joyce White at 254-913-4430 or 254-527-4635. They do except food supply donations. They cook everything from scratch, so their need includes basics such as flour, cornmeal, cooking oil, salt, pepper, potatoes, fresh vegetables and fruits.  


If you know anyone in these areas they need meals delivered they request you contact them.

Their motto is from Matthew 23: "I was hungry and you fed me".

Next Council Meeting on March 12, 2019 at 7:00 pm.


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:

Golden Oldies’ Lunch - Noon on March 5


The Golden Oldies will meet on March 5th, at Noon for a potluck lunch and games. Invite a friend and join in the fun, food and fellowship.

Women’s Bible Study: Paul’s Letters


St. Peter is hosting a Women’s Bible Study at noon each Thursday. The women are digging into Paul's writings to read, learn and understand Paul's second letter to the Corinthians and how it can apply to our own lives. Christ and the Word become more real as we try to develop a more intimate relationship with Him and realize the work of the Holy Spirit within us to guide and empower us. Our study ends at Easter but watch for more to come.


 

Pastor’s Study on the Life and Significance of Martin Luther


After his trip to Germany along the ‘Martin Luther Road’, Pastor Philip hosted a six-week series of study sessions on the life and significance of Martin Luther. The class discussed the needs for reform inside the Western Church, Luther’s particular view and theology, and the significance of the Protestant movement, both in Luther’s time and in our own.


These sessions were recorded to Facebook and are available for your review at the following links:

Combination Safe For Sale


St. Peter has a large free-standing combination safe available to the highest bidder. After 40 years sitting in the closet, it is time to send it to a new home. We need the space.


The safe stands about 4 feet tall, has steel walls filled with concrete, has its own steel wheels, and has a working combination lock. (Yes, we have the combination.) Did we mention that it is VERY HEAVY? You will need your own manpower and equipment to move it and load it.


If you or a friend are interested in such a safe, please contact the church office at 512-863-5600 or a member of the church council.
