  We're Rolling Along
  That’s right we’re rolling along, or should it be rolling out….cookie dough! As an addition to our Fall Bazaar this year it has been decided to have a Holiday Cookie Sale. We are currently seeking volunteers who would be willing to come out on Wednesdays, from 10AM to Noon and/or 6-8:30PM to St. Peter’s Place to help roll out, cut, and bag cookies. Our goal is to bake and sell 200 pounds!! In addition we are looking for donations of flour and sugar. Signup sheets are posted in the Galleria. Come out and lend a hand!! And remember, the more dough we roll, the more “dough” we will have to help offset our ministry expenses.
  Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service
  On Wednesday, November 26th @ 7 PM the members of St. Peter's will be joining the members of Huff's Union Church for a Special Worship Service at Huffs. Come and join us as together we give thanks!
  A New Ministry Has Begun
  As has been mentioned, our Church Board has decided to host a free Community Meal on the first Friday of each month. This will be a way for those who are struggling, to stretch their food supplies gotten from the Zionsville Food Pantry. We have been blessed with St. Peter’s Place, and what better way is there to use it than to be a small blessing to those of our community in need. Our first meal in October was a great success, with about fifty people attending. Our next Community Meal, of Sloppy Joe Sandwiches, will be held on November 7th. To volunteer to donate a needed food item, or to help serve please use the Sign-up Sheets posted in the Galleria. We need everyone’s participation and help!! In addition, please pray for this new ministry. Thank you!
  It's Continuing....Game Day
  After “a winning couple of hands” Game Day will again be held!! On Sunday, November 16th, from 1 to 5 PM you and your friends are invited to join others in St. Peter’s Place, for a time of games and fellowship. Check your closets, and dust off those old board games, or decks of cards! All games and any age players are welcome!! Invite a friend and be sure to join us for this month’s “hand”. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
  A Little Extra Help Could Be Used!!
  Our Budget could use a little extra help as we enter the fall. Although we are current on all other bills, we are still struggling to pay off high heating costs from this past winter. We still owe $ 4,000. In oil and propane bills!! As if that wasn’t bad enough, you might have noticed our sanctuary is a bit warm these days – one of our original air conditioners is now in need of replacement!! The cost to replace it will be $1100. So as you can see, an extra little help in the coming weeks would be appreciated!! Thank you!
  Faith and Flicks
  Join Pastor Jerel once a month in viewing a movie, and then discussing it over coffee. This new discussion comes out of a recent sermon in which he mentioned the opening scene from Forest Gump, and the interest (and later discussion) it peaked among members. The hope of Faith and Flicks is that it would help members to more easily begin to make, for themselves, those connections between what they believe, and what they see! He’ll begin on Saturday, October 11th at 6PM with the animated classic – The Lion King. Invite a friend; bring some popcorn….. and get ready for a fun discussion!!

OUR CHURCH
At St. Peter’s denominational labels aren’t as important as simply doing ministry in Christ's name. Although founded over a century and half ago, St. Peter’s continues to look for, and embrace new ways to do ministry in the 21st Century. We are a congregation of 150 members affiliated with both the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the United Church of Christ. Situated in a rural setting on the edge of Lehigh County, St. Peter’s is bordered by both a large grove of shade trees, and a church cemetery. In addition to the main church building and attached classroom wing, there is also a new adjacent multi-use facility - ideal for meetings, wedding receptions, or retreats. All are welcome.
