  Experience God's Amazing Grace on Worldwide Communion Sunday
  On October 4th we will be celebrating Worldwide Sunday. Please join us, as we gather around His Table, and celebrate that in fact, there is only on faith, one Lord, and one baptism. If you have not received the Sacrament in some time, here is the perfect opportunity for you to COMEBACK to the Lord’s Table.
  We Gather To Celebrate God's Bounty
  On Sunday, October 11th we will be celebrating Harvest Home Sunday. This service annually provides us with a special opportunity to show our gratitude and thanks to God for his blessings to us, by bringing food items to help others. Items collected this year will again be given to the Zionsville Area Food Bank. PLEASE DO NOT BRING HOME CANNED ITEMS as Federal law does not allow use/donation of home canned items. Please come early on the 11th with your gifts, so that you can add them to our display before the start of our service.
  It's Continuing.... Game Day
  After a “winning début” last month, Game Day will be back on Sunday, October 18th, from 1 PM – 5 PM. 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.

  Remembering Those Who Have Died In The Faith
  November 1st is All Saints Sunday. During the Prayers on that Sunday we will be remembering all those members of St. Peters who have died during the past year, and who now rest with all the saints in heaven. If you know of someone who lost a loved one, please invite him or her to attend worship on the 1st. We will also, this year, be remembering and giving thanks for the bequests our congregation has received, which have enabled our ministry, here on our “mountaintop” to continue.
  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 once again been decided to have a Holiday Cookie Sale. We are again 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. Baking will begin on Wednesday, October 7th. Our goal this year is to bake and sell 100 dozen of cookies!! In addition we are looking for donations of flour and sugar. Signup sheets are posted in the Galleria; or talk to Ron Marks to volunteer. 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.
  A New Ministry Is About To Begin
  This fall, we will try to “resurrect” our Sunday Church School for families. After meeting with parents, it has been decided that the best time for Christian Education is during the worship hour, and that, at least initially, once a month will work best. And so, we are going to listen to their input; and try implementing a new model for Sunday Church School, here” on the mountaintop”. Beginning on October 11th, and on the second Sunday of each month thereafter, we will now be having a lesson for children (age 2 and up) during the worship hour. This lesson will take place in our Nursery. All those with families are welcome to participate!! As this new ministry grows, we will need more teachers and helpers to insure its success. If you are able to volunteer once a quarter, please let Pastor Jerel know. As we begin this “new” ministry, even if you can’t volunteer, please pray for it. Thank you.
  Are You, Or Do You Know of Someone Who Might Be, Interested In Becoming a Member?
  If you, yourself, are interested, or you know of someone else who is interested in joining St. Peter’s, please speak to Pastor Jerel. There is no requirement of attending classes – what is needed is only a desire to actively become involved in our congregational life together. If you have been hesitant in joining, now is the time to come back and experience God’s grace!! Pastor Jerel is now preparing to take in new members in November and/or December.

  A Possible Change In Worship Time
  Our Church Board is beginning to discuss the possibility of changing the time of our Sunday Worship. With an aging congregation, a change in Sunday Church School needs, and the threat of bad weather in the winter months the thought is that perhaps a later start time might be good for our worship attendance. Your input is important in this discussion and ultimate decision! Please take a minute and fill out the attached Survey, and see that it returns to the Church Office by October 31st. Thank you!!

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.
