NEWS  &  NOTES
  The World We Live In Is Changing
  It comes as no surprise that the world we are living in today is vastly different than the one most of us grew in. With that change has come a new defining of “Sunday School” or Christian education. On Sunday, April 19th immediately following worship we are inviting parents of young children to gather for a roundtable discussion. We’ll be looking at what type of instruction is needed, and how best to offer it. By doing so, we hope to not only “reinvent” our Sunday Church School program but also help parents in fulfilling the vows they made at their child’s baptism – “(that) As they grow in years you will place in their hands the Holy Scripture and provide for their instruction in the Christian faith, that living in the covenant of their Baptism and in communion with Church they may lead a godly life until the day of Jesus Christ.” We are excited about this discussion, and what new ideas/ministries might come from it!! If you know of a young family, invite them to attend!! If you have a suggestion, feel free to attend!! Everyone is welcome. Childcare will be provided.
  Friendly's Family Fun Night
  Family Fun Night at Friendly's Restaurant, in Trexlertown from 5-8 PM on Tuesday, April 21, 2015. St. Peter's will receive 10% of sales. Come and join us!
  VBS Spaghetti Dinner
  Join us this Friday, April 24th for our Spaghetti Supper from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM. Every dollar made will go directly to supporting this for this year's "Winter wonderland". This years VBS will run from June 22nd- June 26th.
  We're Trying Something New
  We are going to try something new this winter when bad weather occurs. The Church Board has decided to go with a Modified Schedule on those Sundays, when getting to worship by 9 AM is difficult. On those specific Sundays, there will be no Sunday School, and worship will be held at 10:30 AM. This will allow the sun to be up, roads to melt a bit, and hopefully members to safely travel. If it appears that even by 10:30 AM travel will be difficult, then as has been done in the past, worship will be canceled for the day. As always, please check out our website at stpeterspa.org, or WFMZ.com and Channel 69 for the latest information. If you do not have Internet access, you can always call the church, or Pastor Jerel to get this needed information, before you set out for worship.
  Walk For The Homeless
  Get pledges and join us on Saturday, May 9th for our Annual Walk of 10, 5, or 2 miles from St. Peter's to Huff's Union Church. Proceeds from this year's event will go to aid the Zionsville Food Pantry. To sign up or to get more information please call the Church Office. Thank you for helping us help others!
  VBS Spaghetti Dinner
  Join us this Friday, May 15th for our Spaghetti Supper from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM. Every dollar made will go directly to supporting this for this year's "Winter wonderland". This years VBS will run from June 22nd- June 26th.
  Pentecost Sunday
  This year for Pentecost Sunday, May 24th, we are again going to decorate our Chancel with red geraniums! Similar to what we do at Christmas and Easter, we are asking people to purchase individual plants for $8.50 a piece, in honor or memory of a loved one. The difference is that we are asking that the plants be left at the Church after the Service to be planted around our building. This way they not only add to celebration of Pentecost, but also serve, as needed landscaping. Thank you for your support of this new venture. Orders are due by Sunday April 26, 2015.
  Memorial Day Weekend
  Join us on Sunday May 24th from 7-11 AM for a FREE PANCAKE AND SAUSAGE BREAKFAST. All veterans will recieve a small token of recognition and appreciation for their service. At the conclusion of our regular Service there will also be a special Memorial Service in our cemetery, done by Macungie VFW Post 9264. Join us for these tributes.
  Come And Sing
  Our Director of Music, Roger Neubert, has announced that once again this year, we will be having a Special Men’s Choir on Mother’s Day. Any man interested in serenading “their women” is invited to stay after worship on Sunday, May 3rd, to rehearse. This has been a fun “musical treat’ in past years, and we look forward to it being the same this year. NO special musical talent is needed, just a desire to sing!

Women you will also have your chance this year! A Special Women’s Choir is also planned for Father’s Day. Rehearsal for this performance will be held following worship on Sunday, June 14th. Plan now, on serenading “your man” this Father’s Day!

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.
