Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study

Welcome!  Serving in worship today are: Jim St. (Communion Asst and Reader), Andy W.  (acolyte), Judy G. (Communion set up/clean up), and Steve d. (usher).

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!  Today we give thanks for all those whom God has called into the vocation of motherhood. We rejoice in the unique contributions that our mothers have made to our lives. We also pray that God would encourage and refresh all mothers, that they might know the Savior’s love and share it with their children. “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” (Proverbs 31:28)

Adult Bible Study and Sunday School are at 8:15 a.m. every Sunday.  Our discussion will start at Phil. 2:5. This section of Paul’s letter is often called his Hymn to Christ because of its poetic nature. Jesus embraced the role of a humble servant to the world, enduring great affliction so that we could be saved. This was necessary before his final exaltation could take place. Paul holds this pattern up as a model for the Christian’s life today. Where is God calling us to greater humility and servant minded living?

Book of Acts Zoom Study Our next class on May 17th will begin at Acts 7:1. In his speech to the Sanhedrin Stephen recalls the entire history of Israel, focusing on how her people often rejected those whom God sent to lead them. It is sometimes necessary to speak a harsh and direct word of Law to people who stubbornly refuse to listen to God. This is a gracious act when the ultimate goal is to bring about repentance and faith.

Vacation Bible School   Save the date for Vacation Bible School at St. Peter, July 23-27 (SUN-THURS)! It will run from 6:00-8:30pm with a light meal served at 5:30. Our theme will be “God’s Living Water”, exploring through music, bible lessons, games and crafts how God covers us with His amazing grace! Our program is open to all children entering Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Spread the word, and talk to Hope Dunbar if you would like to know more or serve as a volunteer.
