Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study
Ash Wednesday is a week from this Wednesday!!! Service is at 7:30 pm. Our theme for the Wednesday evening services this Lent is “The Lamb.” We will follow the theme through the OT starting with Abel’s sacrifice and into the NT concluding at the cross with the sacrifice of the Lamb. Highlight the season of Lent this year by rededicating yourself to additional time of worship and hearing God’s Word each Wednesday evening.
The traditional disciplines of Lent are fasting, prayer and alms giving. You are encouraged to do something in each category this Lent. Let your light shine. You are the light of the world!
Lenten Soup Suppers will start March 4 at 6:30pm. There is a sign-up sheet posted on the bulletin board to share in bringing soups, salads, and bread. Please help out by signing up early!
The Adult Bible Study on Leviticus continues today. The Sunday morning Adult Bible Class has begun a study of the book of Leviticus. Some may consider it antiquated since it gives many instructions for Temple worship. But a closer look reveals that while the things we do in worship are different, the reason we do them are the same! This week we will discuss chapters 8-10 Institution of the Divine Service and the Priesthood. Join us Sundays at 9:30 in the Fellowship Hall.
Women’s Bible Study meets on Thursday mornings at 10:00 in the Fellowship Hall. All women are invited. Questions? Please contact Lori Rolwood.

Prayer Chain. The Prayer Chain is ready to receive your prayer requests. Simply call Barbara Greenberg to start or update a prayer. Prayers are by request only and are strictly confidential. You can also join the prayer chain by giving Barbara your e-mail address or phone number.
Last Sunday afternoon, St. Peter hosted its Third Annual Mid-Winter Lecture, “Luther’s 2020 Vision”, presented by Hank Bitten. Hank is both a retired Lutheran Minister of Education and public school administrator (currently serving as the Executive Director of the NJ Council for Social Studies). The informative and thought-provoking lecture was well attended, with the majority of the audience coming from about five different area churches, in addition to a few residents who heard about it from other sources.
Orphan Grain Train Clothing Collection. “I was naked and you clothed me.” We will be collecting men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, beginning on Ash Wednesday, and continuing through Lent. All donations should be in clean, undamaged condition, with no inappropriate images or words. Please leave bagged donations in the meeting room downstairs. Any questions, please call Shea Robinson.
