“I Tell You The Truth” – is the theme for the upcoming Lenten Services which will begin on Wednesday, February 18. Services will be held each Wednesday at 3:15 and 7:00 pm. The Ash Wednesday Services will be Communion services. The emphasis for all these services will be powerful and compelling truths our Savior Himself spoke concerning His suffering and death and resurrection. This Lenten season there will be a rotation of pastors: Pastor Paul Fritz, St. John’s, East Bloomfield; Pastor Paul Bowe, Immanuel, Waupaca; Pastors Schafer & Lemke, St. Peter, Weyauwega. The individual themes for each of the special services are as follows: I Tell You The Truth: 1)Anyone Who Sins is a Slave to Sin; 2)Faith Can Move Mountains; 3)If One Dies, It Produces Life For Many; 4)Fruits of Faith Will be Remembered; 5)One of You will Betray Me; and 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.
LIBRARY MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY!
We are blessed with a new library facility in the Narthex. Members of St. Peter will now have a unique opportunity to expand the number and variety of Christian books that will be available in the church Library. A Book Fair will be held before and after services on March 7th & 8th and again on March 21st & 22nd. This large collection of books are being provided by Northwestern Publishing House and will be on display in the Narthex. Members will have the opportunity to choose a book(s) to donate to the library or to purchase for their own personal library. Please plan on spending some time browsing through some wonderful Christian literature on these days.
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!
NEW BIBLE STUDY IN MARCH
“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.
