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.
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.

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
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.
Our SPLC booth is all ready for the Nicollet County Fair. Stop by and say “hi” when you’re at the fair! We are still in need of volunteers to man the booth for various time periods over the duration of the fair. Please contact a pastor if you are interested!
