  Ventures 2014
  Ventures is a program sponsored by our Pennsylvania Southeast Conference/UCC for adults who want to explore meaningful ideas and issues in a retreat setting. It is also a time for fun and fellowship, for renewing old friendships and making new friends, as well as a time for personal reflection. This year’s theme will explore the hidden and not so hidden treasures of growing older. Think of John Glenn going into space at the age of 77, and all those other individuals who remained creative and vital in their elder years. God’s call to us remains a lifelong call. Where are you growing? What keeps you passionate? What’s on your bucket list, and why? How can you use your days to add quality and meaning to your years? Join others in their elder years for an engaging and growing time!! Ventures will take place at Mariawald in Reading, PA from 11 AM Tuesday, September 23rd to 1 PM Thursday, September 25th. To learn more, visit: or call June Rung at (610)-683-6563 or Rev. Wanda Craner at (484)-949-08774 x303.

  Celebrating God's Bounty

  It's Continuing.... Game Night

You and your friends are again 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! Last year we got “rowdy” with dominoes, pinochle, and Crush to name a few of the games in which “champions” were crowned. All games and any age players are welcome!! Invite a friend and be sure to join us for this year’s “season”. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

  Let's Get Rolling
  That’s right it’s time to get rolling….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 a night or two to St. Peter’s Place to help roll out, cut, and bag cookies. Our goal is to bake and sell 40 dozens!! 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
  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!!
  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!

  Our Wider Church Connections
  Click on the wording, UCC Website, at the bottom of this page for more information about the United Church of Church. Click here to visit the website of our sister denomination, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

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.
