Church Apparel Online Store – Great Christmas Gifts!

The Outreach committee at the request of some congregation members opened up another online clothing order site for this Fall!   The shop will be open currently until Nov. 11 for those interested in gift buying.   There are a lot of great products from t-shirts, to sweatshirts, to backpacks, to hats, and more that feature the Saint Peter Lutheran Church logo.   Not only can these items make great gifts for yourself or someone else, but they can also be a great way to help us spread the word in our community about the gospel message that is shared at our church and school.   Click the link below to view the items for sale and to make an order!

Future Pastors and Teachers Needed!

Do you know a young person who has the gifts and talents to be a pastor or teacher someday? With our synod currently experiencing a shortage of pastors and teachers, workers are desperately needed in the Lord’s harvest field! Many current pastors and teachers would tell you that the encouragement they received from fellow Christians played a big role in them choosing to work in the public ministry.
 
Click on the link below to print out a card that can be filled out and passed to a young person that you think has the gifts to serve in the public ministry. This could be a quick and simple way to encourage that young person to serve as a future pastor or teacher! Someday, that young person may list this very encouragement as the reason they chose to be a pastor or teacher!

Praise and Proclaim Event

Today this group of believers went door to door sharing the gospel message about Jesus as the Savior and inviting people to our church and upcoming community Fall Festival event. A gospel message was successfully shared at the front door of 250+ people in the community around our church. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped make this Praise and Proclaim event a big success! We pray that the Holy Spirit causes the gospel “seeds” planted today to grow into living faith in the individuals that we met.

Message from Pastor: “It’s in God’s Hands!”

It’s in God’s Hands

“It’s in God’s hands.” Do you hear people say that? Is that a phrase that you use often too? When there’s a big decision to be made – “It’s in God’s hands.” When you’re sick or a loved one’s health is failing – “It’s in God’s hands.” When something has made you worried and afraid and you really don’t know what to do – “It’s in God’s hands.” Think of that beloved hymn, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.” We like to think about our lives being in God’s hands.

Pastor Nass Received a Call

Dear SPLC Family,

I want to inform you that yesterday afternoon I received a divine call from St. Paul Lutheran Church in Green Bay, WI to serve as a pastor at their church. This means that I will now take a few weeks to decide whether or not I and my family would like to accept their call and move to Green Bay or continue to serve here in Saint Peter. I’m looking forward to the chance to evaluate my gifts and ministry here in Saint Peter as well as consider the possibility of ministry in Green Bay. Continue reading

Join Us for Family Bible Hour!

This summer between services Saint Peter Lutheran Church has been hosting a weekly “Family Bible Hour” program in which individuals and families have been invited to join us in the study of the miracles of Jesus and take part in fun activities and games centered on God’s Word.   With the summer drawing to a close, we will have our last two Family Bible Hours at 9:15 A.M. on Sunday August 19th and Sunday August 26th.   Please consider joining us for these faith-building and fun events!  Feel free to invite friends, neighbors, and family members to come along!

This week will be looking at Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.  We will be reminded that Jesus loves and cares for us deeply.  We will also be reminded that because Jesus has proved to have power over death, we can face our own death with confidence.  When we die, we know Jesus has a place prepared for us in heaven and, someday just like Lazarus, we will be called out of our own graves on the Last Day as well!  Because Jesus is with us we can face all the challenges of life with peace and confidence.
