MISSON FESTIVAL/BRAT FRY
Our annual Mission Festival will be held on Saturday & Sunday, August 8-9, 2015. Our guest speaker will be Pastor Roger Schultz who is the administrator of Calvary Academy in Florida, a WELS affiliated ministry to help troubled youth and their families who are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral problems in their home, school and/or community.
The 10:30 service on Sunday will be followed by a brat fry in the Commons, hosted by St. Peter's Worship Committee. All items will be provided.
SUMMER OFFICE HOURS
St. Peter’s office will be staffed Monday thru Friday, from 8:00 am. until 1:00 pm. If you need to talk to one of the pastors outside those hours, you may call their cell phone: Pastor Lemke – 920-740-0198 or Pastor Schafer – 920-427-0552.
Scrip will be available all summer during office hours, and also the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month. There will be NO scrip sales from June 28 through July 6 as we will be figuring the year end distributions at that time. We will inform you of your credits as soon as the figures are available after that week.
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, August 2, 2015.
SUMMER SERMON SERIES
We are going to have a summer sermon series on ‘The Book of Ephesians’. The series will run from July 19 to September 6. All of the ‘second lessons’ for the pericope that we are presently using for that period of time come from Ephesians, so we have decided to have a series on the entire book. The Book of Ephesians beautifully describes the important truths of the Christian faith that St.Paul so eloquently emphasizes. Paul describes the believer’s election in Christ; the relationship between grace, faith, and good works; our baptism in Christ which leads to a new life; the Christian’s response to God’s grace – a life of love and service to God and our neighbor. 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
On Sunday, August 16, we will have “Coffee Hour” in between services in the Narthex. We will use this occasion to welcome our new members – Andrew Zimmerman and Mrs. Katie Fischer. We will also use the occasion to welcome our new 2nd grade teacher - Mrs. Elizabeth Roecker. She will be installed as our new teacher during the 8:00 o'clock service. So many reasons for us to give thanks to the Lord! We look forward to this special time for fellowship and for the opportunity to welcome our new members and our new teacher to St. Peter congregation.
GOOD TO KNOW
CALL Accepted! Installation Date Set!
On Sunday, June 28, 2015 the voters of St.Peter congregation extended the Call to teach Grade 2 for the coming school year (2015-2016) to Mrs. Elizabeth M. Roecker. This past year she taught at Mt.Calvary Lutheran School in Waukesha. Her husband just graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and received his first Call to serve Divine Word Lutheran Church in Plover. We are happy to announce that she has accepted the Call to teach at our school. We thank the Lord of the Church for providing a teacher who will teach His precious truths to the lambs placed into her care. She will be installed at the 8:00 o'clock service on Sunday, August 16! We will welcome her during the "Coffee Hour/New Member Welcome" that same day.
