CHRISTIAN RECORDING ARTIST COMING TO ST. PETER
We will be privileged to have with us at our services on August 29-30 Stephen Bautista. Stephen is a WELS member from Las Vegas, NV, and a full-time Christian Music Missionary who seeks to "enlighten the lost and encourage the found" with his original, Christ-centered music. Listeners describe Bautista as having a similar musical and vocal style to that of James Taylor, but with lyrics that convey a solid Gospel message. Free-will offerings will be taken at all of the services that weekend to help him continue spreading the Gospel with music.

A reminder that we have a ‘Children’s Sermon’ the first Sunday of each month. We ask all pre-school to grade 3 age children to come to the front of the church during the 2nd verse of the pre-sermon hymn; after the devotion the congregation will continue singing the rest of the pre-sermon hymn while the children make their way back to the pews. Parents are welcome to accompany their little ones if they wish. The next ‘Children’s Sermon’ will be on Sunday, September 6, 2015.
SPL BIBLE HOUR
As fall approaches we begin thinking of Bible Study opportunities. This year there will be opportunities for all ages of the SPL church family. From nursery aged children to God's children with grey hair, there are great opportunities to do what our Lord encourages and grow in him and his Word. This year we are hosting registration for Children's Bible Hour (4K-8th grade) after services on August 23 and August 30. Just a note that this is for all members of St. Peter. We welcome and encourage participation from Public School students and SPL students alike. Come and enjoy a fun and relaxed atmosphere with our new curriculum (different from St. Peter Lutheran School curriculum).
NEW BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITY IN SEPTEMBER
The hymn writer stated it well when he wrote, "God's Word is our Great Heritage." God's Word is the one thing that we can pass on to our children and grandchildren that will last for an eternity. We want our children to know that they are redeemed children by the blood of Jesus. It is only through God's Word that they find their Savior from sin. A new Bible study entitled "Influencing God's Children" will be offered to the congregation starting on Sunday, September 6, at 9:15 am.
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY
A "Women's Bible Study" will be offered to all the women of St. Peter congregation beginning in September. The new Bible study will be held the third Wednesday of each month, starting Wednesday, September 16. It will be held at 10:00 am in the Narthex. The Bible study will focus on the fruits of the Spirit as they are made visible to us in the lives of the women of the Bible. The title of the book which will serve as a teaching tool is: "Golden Fruit: Living the Fruit of the Spirit through the Best Times of your Life." This book will be available to purchase for a minimal fee. A sign up sheet for this Bible study will be in the back of church August 29 & 30.
SUMMER SERMON SERIES
We are presently having a summer sermon series on ‘The Book of Ephesians’. The series will run until September 6. The overall theme for this series is: "Grace in Christ!" The book of Ephesians beautifully describes the important truths of the Christian faith that St. Paul so eloquently emphasizes. May the Lord strengthen our faith in Him through our study of this inspired book and lead us to appreciate what it truly means to belong to Christ in this life and in the life to come!
Volunteers are needed to assist in the weekly church cleaning during July and August. A sign-up sheet is located on the back table of the church. If you are willing to give a couple hours of your time, it would be appreciated. If you have questions, please contact Denise Anderson at 920-299-3427 or Susie Faulks at 920-867-3985.
COFFEE FELLOWSHIP HOUR
