07.20.2023 Weekly Update

THANK YOU for a wonderful outdoor worship service and picnic!  It was nice to worship outside, and we enjoyed our time of food and fellowship at the picnic.  It takes a lot of people and a lot of work to have events like this.  We are grateful for everyone who planned, organized, brought food, ate food, helped with set-up/clean-up, and came to enjoy the special day.  Thank you!

Dartball Aluminum Can Drive

Next Weekend!  St. Peter’s Dartball Team is sponsoring an aluminum can drive again this summer.  Bring your bags of aluminum cans (aluminum only – please continue to recycle your other items) to the kitchen entrance (north side) of the building on Sunday July 30th and August 27th before or after worship.  If you would like someone to pick up your aluminum, please reply to this email and we will coordinate a time for you.  The proceeds from the can drive will be split with WELCA.  The Dartball Team will use their portion to pay for entry fees and other expenses.  

Fidget Mats PLUS!!!!

New name for fidgeters as we have evolved!   Some of our fidgeters and quilters have found a new way to bring comfort and care to the people we serve and have added Pocket Prayer Quilts, Adult Bibs and Foley Bag Covers to those in need. 

Deliveries in June have been:   Adult Mats- 27,   Alzheimer’s Mats- 4,   Children’s Mats- 5,   Cuffs- 21,   Pocket Prayer Quilts- 50,   Adult Bibs- 26   and Foley Bag Covers- 61.  Recipients were Sharon Richardson, Azura, RCS, Shores of Sheboygan and Lily Hospice.   (We have delivered to Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls, Howards Grove, Oostburg, Plymouth, Cedar Grove, Cedarburg, New Holstein and Germantown in WI., and out of state to Chicago, IL, Fargo, ND and Benson, MN.)  All to the glory of God!

Join us on Thursdays from 10am to noon in the Quadrooms. 

Lutheran World Relief

A message from Lutheran World Relief:  “Education is one of the strongest tools a community has for breaking the cycle of poverty. Ensuring that girls attend school, especially in places where their access is deprioritized, has even stronger results. Lutheran World Relief School Kits contain essential supplies to help children — and in some cases, adults — continue learning in the face of serious obstacles. That learning leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities.”

We are halfway through the summer months and getting closer to the next school year. Soon all the school supplies will be out in the stores and often at a great discount. Please consider picking up a few items to help our congregation meet our goal of assembling 150 school kits this year. Drop them off in the hallway between church and fellowship hall. Thank you for all the support given to this project. It is always amazing on school bag assembly day to see what an impact we as a congregation can have on the world. Any questions contact a WELCA board member.

School kit item list:

Four 70-sheet notebooks

One box of 24 crayons

One pencil sharpener

One ruler

One pair blunt scissors

Five unsharpened pencils

Five black or blue pens

One 2 ½”  eraser


Our quilting group for Lutheran World Relief needs gently used sheets for the backs of the quilts.  Flat sheets are preferred – any size and color is just fine!  Then, join us for quilting on Tuesdays from 9:00am–12:00pm in the quad room.  No experience necessary.  We will teach you. 

Northside Christian Food Pantry 

NSCFP continues to be available to those in our community who are in need of food. With the support of St. Peter members, we are able to give them choices of both canned and fresh foods. NSCFP thanks you for your loyal contributions and values our partnership.

988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

This lifeline provides care and support to people experiencing stressful situations.  It is free, confidential, and is available 24/7.  People of all ages who need help for themselves or a loved one can access the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline by: calling 988, sending a text message to 988, or using the chat feature at 988lifeline.org.  People who contact 988 will be connected with a trained counselor who takes note of the person’s needs, understands how the person’s problem is affecting them, provides support, and, if needed, gets the person additional help.
