  Midweek Lenten Services Continue "Our Lenten Ascent... Climbing The Mountains of God"
  As you know by now if you have been at nay of our services thus far, our theme this year centers on "climbing" the various mountains we find in scripture. After looking at their historical context, Pastors Kropa and Gade have led a discussion on how they continue to have an impact on our faith life today. The emotions and questions faced by the various Biblical characters as they actually climbed these mountains, continue to be a part of our faith lives today, though for different reasons. How they reacted can help us on our own journey with God. Join us for this "Action packed" look at some of the landmarks we find in Scripture. Worship will begin at 7 PM each week. Prior to the service, at 6 PM, we will again gather for a light supper. Come, when and where you are able for the rest of this series: Wednesday, March 7 @ Huff's Wednesday, March 14 @ St. Peters Wednesday, March 21 @ Huffs

If you are free on Thursday, March 15th to help bake Easter cookies, please speak to Ron Marks. Even if you can only spare an hour, please know your time would be appreciated!! Thank you.
  Reaching Out Through Our Spring Bazaar
On March 24th we will be having our Annual Spring Bazaar. This is an important outreach into our community. To make it a success we do need your help! We are in need for our members to donate baked goods, and/or the ingredients needed to make our pot pie. We are also in need of volunteers for various jobs, as well as individuals to donate baskets for the raffle, on the day of the event. Please help us out, as you can, and are able. Thank you!

  Blessed Is He Who Comes In The Name Of The Lord
  Join us on Sunday, March 25th, at our regular worship time, as we celebrate Palm Sunday. Our service begins that day in the rear of our sanctuary, with the Blessing of Palm Branches, and the reading from Scripture of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. From that moment on our sanctuary symbolically becomes the City of Jerusalem, in which in the coming days, of Holy Week, we remember the final events of Jesus' life. We will remember his breaking of bread with the Disciples, his betrayal and Crucifixion, and ultimately the empty tomb - and the Good News, that he is not here, but risen! Each event builds upon the next; and it is really hard to experience one, without experiencing the others. Hence, Palm Sunday is just the beginning of a week long series of worship opportunities you are invited to attend.
  Given And Shed For You
  On Thursday evening, march 29th at 7 PM, we gather for the celebration of our Lord's Last Supper. We will hear again the story of betrayal, and experience anew the example of service and love given to us by Jesus. The Words of Institution will once again be said over the simple gifts of bread and wine - and we will again come to the Lord's able to receive God's amazing grace. The gifts of God are meant for YOUl Please plan on worshipping with us, this year, on Maundy Thursday.

  Dispised and Crucified for You
  This year at noon on Good Friday, March 30th we will again gather at St. Peters, for The Stations of the Cross.

The early Christians use to visit the places in Jerusalem, which were associated with the journey of Jesus from Pilate’s judgment hall to the tomb. This was known as the Via Dolorosa or the Way of the Cross. The places at which various events took place are known as stations. These sacred events continue to be commemorated in the traditional devotion known popularly as the Stations of the Cross - through which we worship the One crucified for our salvation. Please join us for worship on this solemn day. If you cannot attend at noon you are invited to worship in the evening at 7 PM at Huff’s.

  Who Do You Seek
  Sunday, April 2nd we will gather at 7 AM for our first worship of the day. This service, based on the Easter Vigil, moves from darkness to light, and includes the first announcement of the good news that, “He is not here; but has arisen!” Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of this service.

After this worship all are invited to stay and join us for a Continental Breakfast over in St. Peter’s Place. As in the past, people are asked to bring juice, donuts, breakfast cakes, etc. to share with others. This will continue until 8:30 AM, when we must stop and prepare for our second service.

At 9 AM we will again gather for worship. This Service will include special music, as well as the celebration, once again, of Holy Communion.

All in all, Easter will be a busy day around St. Peters. Amidst all of the business, both here and in our homes that day, we pray that the Risen Christ will be present to guide all we do! We pray that YOU will come to know anew the love of God and the priceless gift given to 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.
