Events

CPR Training.  We are interested in seeing how many folks we have at church who are trained in CPR/AED. If you are either trained or interested in receiving training, please fill out our online CPR survey. Or you may fill out the attached survey.

Social Ministry – there will be a Social Ministry meeting on Sunday, February 26th at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall, to discuss events for the 2023 calendar year. New members are welcome to join in and be a part of our active Social Ministry team.

Fellowship News.  Fellowship will be hosting Fish/Potluck Dinners Wednesday’s at 6pm During Lent.  Dinners will begin on Ash Wednesday and conclude on Maundy Thursday with a Shrimp and Lobster Dinner.  Please sign up on the sheets on the Fellowship bulletin board or by emailing stpeterlcfellowship@gmail.com .  Please include the dish you are bringing to share to help others decide what they will bring.

2023 “SOUPER-BOWL” OF CARING – ST. PETER LUTHERAN.  It’s that time again – our annual effort to collect cans of soup (or donations) for the families served by New Hope Ministries Food Pantry.  Last year, through your generosity, we collected and donated over 4,100 cans of soup (or equivalent donations).  This year we realize that inflation has affected food prices but it is possible to find soup on sale or at prices under $1.00 a can.  So, any donations made and marked “soup” on the envelope in the offering will be counted as 1 can per dollar donated.  Let’s have some fun and help those in need starting now, through February 10.

Are You Available Tuesday or Thursday Morning?  Help Is Needed To Make Easter Eggs.  Beginning Tuesday, February 7th, we (men and women) will begin making our delicious St. Peter Easter eggs.  If you are available, we would love to have you socialize with us as we work together making the Easter eggs.  Everyone has a good time while helping with our ELCW fundraising project that in turn helps St. Peter.  Any number of hours that you can help would be greatly appreciated!

Knit Wit News.  The Knit Wits have decided to include lunch with our knitting time. We will still meet Mondays from noon till 1:20 pm in Fellowship Hall, but if you’d like to come a little early and bring a lunch, we are making this a BYOL event for the winter months. Even if you can’t come early, you can still BYOL.  We will still have Zoom available as well. 

Lenten Scavenger Hunt.  Let’s have some pre-Lenten fun! We will be having a Scavenger Hunt from February 1st-February 21st (see attachment).  Members are invited to participate in this challenge. There are 11 questions which need to be answered. All answers can be found on the hallway walls. “Googling” is not permitted. Entries need to be put in Carol Forbes/ mailbox by February 21st. For all those who correctly answer all 11 questions their prize will be a dozen chocolate eggs of their choice made by our egg makers. These include peanut butter, coconut, butter cream, and maple walnut. One winner per family.

Men Group Meeting – the next Men’s Group Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30 pm.  Please plan to attend

Attention Egg Makers:   we are asking all egg making volunteers to park in the middle of the main parking lot and not in the spots that are along the sidewalk.    GLEE uses the parking spots that are all around the sidewalks (beginning with the first handicapped spot by the main entrance doors (near the offices)) for pick up and drop off of the GLEE children, Monday -Thursday, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm.  This would greatly help us keep these tiny precious members of GLEE safe!  Your help with this would be greatly appreciated.  Questions?  See Joyce or Carolyn. 

St. Peter Garden News.  The seed catalogues have arrived!  Now is the time to reserve your garden plot in the St. Peter Community Garden. At last count, we have three plots available for your use. Reserving a plot will be on a first come first serve basis. Please let me know which plot/ location you want.   Thanks, Clyde
