Quilting for Lutheran World Relief will begin on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, from 9am– 12pm  in the quad room.  Please come, we have a lot of work to do.  With all the earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters LWR is in desperate need of quilts.  No experience necessary.  We will teach you.  See you there.  Peace, Wendy B.

El Salvador News
We have received a large packet of letters from our students in El Salvador.  Some are waiting to be translated and will be mailed as soon as they are ready; others have been delivered to sponsors.  It would be appreciated if our sponsors would write an answer to our student letters so that when I’m notified that a group is going to El Salvador I will have letters ready to go.  Than you, Jim S. and the El Salvador Team


Bridgeway & Beyond Update:  We have maintained a full house with 11 moms and kiddos in the program.  With the start of the school year, we are grateful for more structure and routine to stabilize family schedules.  The mental health needs of our families are significant, so we continue to collaborate with programs such as PATH, Children Community Option Program and various social workers.  Our moms continue to work on their goals of reducing debt, pursuing education, and seeking affordable housing on their journey to self-sufficiency.

Bidgeway could use the following items:  hand warmers, aluminum foil, Kwik Trip gas cards, and bleach.

Community Resources 
The National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) has a helpline 800-950-6264 that is available M-F 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This helpline provides the one-on-one help and information necessary to tackle tough challenges that you, your family or friends are facing.  They also have 24/7 crisis support.  Call 800-273-8255 or text NAMI to 741-741 to receive free support via text message.  

Sunday School 
Sunday School for children ages 3 years through 5th grade has begun from 9:15-9:45am.  At least one caregiver/parent must accompany each household of children.  We need adults to stay because we will not be having a sign-in/sign-out procedure and hope to do many activities outdoors if the weather allows.  Caregivers/parents are encouraged to participate with their children!  Masks are not required outdoors but are still required in the building.  

All students entering 6th-9th grade are invited to join confirmation classes on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm.  

Bible Study
Join us for Bible Study, led by Myra, on Wednesday mornings from 10:00am to 11:00am in the Fireside Room.  Please reply to this email or call the church office at 920.452.4771 to sign up to attend.


8:00am – Worship in the sanctuary.  We will wear masks and distance.
9:15am-9:45am – Sunday School in the parking lot if the weather is nice and in the fellowship hall if the weather is not nice.  A grown-up must stay with each household of children.  See details in ‘Lifelong Learning Mission News’ below for more details. 

10:00am – Worship in the parking lot.  Masks are optional.  We plan to worship outdoors on Sunday mornings for as long as the weather allows us.  We will move into the sanctuary (with masks) if the weather does not cooperate. 

If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Kristin, or respond to this email.  We continue to move forward with care for our neighbor being our primary concern. 

Online Worship 
A recording of the early worship service will be posted as soon as possible on Sunday mornings on the St. Peter Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/stpetersheboygan/  and website https://stpetersheboygan.com and St. Peter Lutheran Church – Sheboygan YouTube page  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkvPIB8agxVhS72C5822etA 

Building Use
We continue to follow the recommendations of The Wisconsin Council of Churches.  They currently recommend taking a 2 out of 3 standard approach: meet outdoors, continue to distance, wear masks.  When we apply 2 of the 3 mitigations, we will be doing much to mitigate risk. 

Masks will be optional for outdoor worship and outdoor activities.  Masks are still required inside the building.    

As always, we ask that people make arrangements with Carrie in advance to use the building (920.452.4771 or reply to this email).  Building use requirements are still in place for anyone using the building. 

Building Use Requirements
We continue to follow building use requirements because we continue to love and care for each other.  Building use requirements for individuals and groups are: staff member must be present in the building (Carrie or Pastor Kristin); masks must be worn; distance of six feet between households; we will wait to eat together for the time being so there will be no shared meals; one person in a bathroom at a time and people are expected to clean after each use on their own using Clorox wipes provided; individuals and groups are expected to remain in planned locations; people should follow the signs regarding entering and exiting the building; if you are feeling ill or have been exposed to anyone who is sick, please do not come into the building.  Staff members do not need to attend meetings, but will be present in the building to track people present and clean after. 

Please keep the following people in your prayers:  Brian, Mary Ann’s Family, Jim’s Family, Eric, Sandy, Tammy, William, Lisa, Jeremy, Sarah, Joe, Mary, Pete, Pamela, and Apostles of Christ.
