FLAT JESUS IS BACK, BUT THERE’S A TWIST!
This summer we get to play bingo with Flat Jesus! Yes, you can spend time this summer searching for items, activities, and events and take pictures of Flat Jesus with those things. As you take pictures with Flat Jesus, you can mark off bingo squares. When you get bingo, let us know and we will give you a prize! In the spirit of friendly competition, we will keep a leaderboard so you can see all of the people playing bingo with Flat Jesus. You can pick up Flat Jesus and the first bingo card at church. We will add different bingo cards throughout the summer to keep up with everyone’s adventures! You can send pictures via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to the St. Peter- Sheboygan Facebook page. Flat Jesus’ summer adventures are not limited to bingo so please take Flat Jesus with you wherever you go and take pictures. You don’t have to play bingo with Jesus to remember that God is with you!
We currently have $2,500 in our checking account. We are getting by week to week. Just a reminder that we need $5,450 in donations each week to meet our budgeted expenses. Thank you to all of you who saw the recent need and stepped up! We appreciate you. Summer is usually tough as giving slows, please prayerfully consider how you can help us maintain the ministries, mission and outreach of St. Peter Lutheran Church.

SOCIAL OUTREACH MISSION NEWS
Thank you to those people who have been providing fidget supplies for us, they are so greatly appreciated. It will be a while before we make deliveries again, but it feels good that we will have enough to take care of all who need these items. We always have a need for costume jewelry and extra hands to put together mats. Can you use a sewing machine? Sew on a button? Use scissors? Cut fabric? Sort doodads? Cheer us on? Fulfill what Jesus has asked us to do for our neighbors? If so, we’d love to have you join us! Every Thursday from 9am to noon. Just come!
El Salvador News
Because of some recent health issues, it has been a while since our last zoom meeting with El Salvador, but we were finally able to connect on Wednesday, April 19th. A list of questions was sent to El Salvador in prep for the meeting and we were able to get the answers. All of the sponsored children are doing well, and the gangs have eased up which was nice to hear. The younger children seem to be more relaxed knowing the gangs are backing off. Overall, the meeting was a success. The meeting was attended by Steve W, Jim S., Pastor Cruz and Pastor Christian. We are currently scheduling our next zoom meeting for June and will continue with zoom meetings every two months. A big thank you for the help setting up the zoom meeting, and thanks to all of you for the continued financial giving. ~ Jim Sch
