NEWS  &  NOTES
  We Can Always use A Helping Hand
  In spite of our regular offerings and faith stewardship, we can always use a little extra help in supporting our ministries. One important ministry that reaches out into the community is our Vacation Bible School, which you had a chance to read about earlier in this newsletter. As a way of lifting up and supporting this unique ministry, we will be having two fundraising events in the coming months. The first will be a Spaghetti Supper and Games on the evening of Friday, April 29th from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. ALL proceeds from these events will go directly to funding our VBS. It will help with the cost of curriculum and props, and insure that we can continue the practice of not having to charge children to participate in fun week of activities and learning. As you are able, please come out on the 29th and show your support of this community ministry. As always, THANK YOU!!
  Going Deeper
  This year’s joint Vacation Bible School theme is, “Cave Quest – Following Jesus: The Light of the world!” For the week of June 20th St. Peter’s Place will be turned into a winding dark cave. As we explore in this “darkness”, we will learn that Jesus gives us hope, courage, direction, love, and power. As always help is needed – be it for just a day, or the whole week in June!! Even if you can’t help then, we still can use your help beforehand, during April and May, in painting, and getting our set(s) together. (If you have been around the church, you will have seen that some stalactites have already started to form!) No artistic skill is needed – just a willingness to lend a hand for a few hours!! For more information speak to either MaryBeth Riter or Eleanor Kline. Also, be sure to check on the bulletin board in the Galleria, to see what supplies will be needed – and what you can donate. Please note that gift cards to Home Depot are always welcomed. And finally, for those with children, Registration Forms will be coming in next month’s newsletter.
  Some Help Is Needed
  As St. Peter’s Place is getting rented on a more regular basis, it means that it has to be cleaned more often. That is obvious; but what isn’t so obvious is that. That cleaning needs to involve more members. Those who were doing it just can’t keep doing it without some help! Hence you will see a sign-up sheet posted in the Galleria asking that individuals sign up to help with the cleaning for one month out of the year. If we can get teams to take just month, the job becomes manageable AND no one gets burned out. Appearance, next to a welcoming atmosphere, is the most important factor as to whether or not someone will come back to St. Peter’s. So please consider volunteering to use your gifts in this “menial” but most important way. Thank you!!
  It's Continuing....
  Gathering for a time of fun, food, and games has become a new tradition around here, at St. Peter’s! Plan now to join us on Wednesday night, December 31st, from 6 to 9PM as we once again gather together. 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 year’s “final tournament“; and to ring in the New Year.

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.
