The most sacred week of the church year is fast approaching. We will have opportunity to gather for many special services. The Good Friday Communion Service at 1:00 pm will be broadcast live on WDUX AM800;
any donations to cover that broadcast would be much appreciated.
“From Garden to Glory” – is the theme for the upcoming Lenten services. All mid-week services will be held at 3:15 and 7:00 pm. The emphasis for all of these services will be on Christ and His atoning work to save sinners. This Lenten season there will again be a rotation of pastors: Pastor Paul Fritz, St. John’s, East Bloomfield; Pastor Preston Heuer, Grace, Sugar Bush; Pastor Paul Bowe, Immanuel, Waupaca; Pastors Schafer and Lemke, St. Peter, Weyauwega. The individual themes for the remaining services are as follows: 2) The Garden of Peace; 3) The Garden of Paradise; 4) The Garden of Proclamation; 5) The Garden of Repentance; and 6) The Garden of Passion. These special 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.
F.A.C.E. (Friends Assisting Christian Education) is sponsoring a pizza supper on Wednesday, April 9, 2014. It will be held from 4:00 until 6:30 pm in the Commons.
All our invited to come and enjoy homemade pizza’s, salad and ice cream for dessert!
Easter, the greatest celebration of the Christian church on earth, is just around the corner and we want to invite all of Weyauwega to hear the good news of the Risen Savior Jesus Christ with us. In order to do that, the Evangelism Committee is planning two canvassing opportunities in April for all members of St. Peter to help with. On Saturday April 5th and Saturday April 12th, we will be walking the main streets of Weyauwega to hand out invitations to Easter worship. This will take place from 9 am - noon. We will meet in the commons, have a brief instruction on what to say, divide into groups of two or three, and go inviting. At noon, a lunch will be served for all who help in this endeavor. Please come and help us in this most important work.
WHAT A CELEBRATION!!!!!!!!!
How can we thank the Lord for His great goodness toward us? The Dedication of our new facilities last Sunday was such a grand and glorious event. The Lord provided us with wonderful weather and a crowd that was estimated to be close to 700 people. So many people did so many things to make this celebration possible. To each and every person involved – we say THANK YOU! But most importantly – we thank our loving Savior for blessing this building program in so many ways. How can we thank the Lord for His great goodness to us? – by recommitting ourselves to hearing His Word every week in worship and receiving His sacrament often for the strengthening of our faith; - by recommitting ourselves to serving the Lord faithfully with the gifts and abilities that He has given to each and every one of us!
SPIRITUAL GIFTS WEEKEND AND SERVICE FAIR
Please mark your calendars for the weekend of April 26-27! All of our worship services that weekend will focus on the spiritual gifts that God gives to His believers. God has given His believers different gifts, talents, and abilities that are to be used to His glory and for the benefit of His people. We will review what God has to say about these gifts from His Word.
Sunday, April 27, there will be a “Service Fair” in-between services in
the Commons. Many of the various boards and committees and groups that serve in
our church will have separate booths in the Commons where information will be
shared about their group/board/committee. Do you know what “F.A.C.E.” is and
what it does? Do you know what a wonderful service “SPL Friends in Faith”
provides for many of our members? Are you familiar with “SPL Cares” and some of
the important work they do? You will have the opportunity to learn about these
groups and many others during the “Service Fair” on the 27th. We hope you will mark that weekend on your calendar and plan to be a part of the special events taking place.
