“I Tell You The Truth” – is the theme for our Lenten services this year. The mid-week services are held on Wednesday at 3:15 and 7:00 pm. The emphasis for these services will be powerful and compelling truths our Savior Himself spoke concerning His suffering and death and resurrection. The individual theme for the remaining service is: I Tell You The Truth: 6)You Will Disown Me. These services provide us with wonderful opportunities to journey with our Savior to Calvary as He shows us the full extent of His love for sinners.

Cross Fit Classes
Everyone has the potential to take care of the body the Lord has given them, but its up to us to act on this. St. Peters Health and Wellness would like to assist in being our own body keepers by introducing an 8 week Cross Fit Training class led by Certified Personal Trainer, Jean Stuebs. This class will use each individuals own body weight to exert energy and utilize all muscle groups. This class will be fun with other friends in Christ working toward the same goal of preserving what God has given us. Classes will start on February 9th and end on March 30th. Classes will run for 45 min starting promptly at 7 in the gym of St. Peter Lutheran School. It is asked to bring a change of clean tennis, no street shoes, bring a water bottle, comfy clothes, and an exciting, wanting to learn and engage attitude! This class is free of charge but donations will be accepted. There is no registration for this class, and you can come to as few as 1 or to all 8 sessions. This is the start to many health/wellness challenges the St. Peter Health and Wellness Group would like to introduce. More to come after this first 8 weeks. Please watch the Bulletin,Facebook,and Newsletters for more opportunities!
Thank you, and see you all Monday! Let's get fit!
SEMINARS FOR CHRISTIAN SERVICE
“Seminars for Christian Service” is a day-long opportunity for all church members to learn and share valuable information about a wide variety of topics important for members of Christian churches. For a few examples: ‘How can we recruit more volunteers for service in the church and why is this such a difficult challenge’; ‘A dialogue on domestic abuse’ – what to do and not to do’; ‘Top ten do’s and don’ts for a church website’; ‘The Christian’s response to the transsexual world’; ‘Using social networks for reaching members and prospects’; ‘Women of the Word – how women in our congregations can get involved in ministry work’. Program description booklets and registration forms can be found on the table in back of church. These seminars are scheduled for Saturday, March 28, at Fox Valley Lutheran High School. Our congregation has already paid the registration fee for any of our members who would like to attend. Register early to get your choice of seminars!
NEW BIBLE STUDY
“Come, Follow Me” – is the title of a new Bible study that will be offered to the congregation in March. What does it mean to follow Jesus? The Apostle Peter went through a drastic transformation during the time that he followed Jesus. The amazing part: Peter’s journey and transformation isn’t very different from that which Jesus works in us. Join us for this six-part Bible study (March 15 to April 26) which accompanies the high quality video of the same name. We will incorporate this video as part of the Bible study. The individual topics: 1)Looking Closely at Jesus’ Life; 2) Listening to the Truth; 3) Learning to Obey God’s Will; 4) Leaving Sin and Guilt; 5) Longing for Belonging; and 6: Living the New Life and Leading Others to Jesus.
CHURCH SPRING CLEANING
The annual spring cleaning of the church will take place on Saturday, April 11, starting at 8:00 am. If anyone – men, women, or children can help out for even an hour or two, it would be very much appreciated. Cleaning supplies will be furnished. What a wonderful way to show our thanks for our beautiful place of worship!
