St. Peter's Lancaster

Dartball Tournament Time!!

Our first tournament game will be Monday January 15 at Junction City.

There will be two Matches that night. The 7 o’clock game will be Thornville Methodist versus Millersport.


We will be the second match versus New Lexington. It will start when first match is over. No earlier than 8 o’clock and will depend on whether it goes 2 or 3 games. So we will need to be there at 8 PM.


There will be 4 others matches that same night all at New Lexington (they will set up two courts).


We will play the following week against another dartball team somewhere.

After week one we will be in winners bracket or a losers bracket. As I understand, the losers bracket will be playing for third place only. So not a true double elimination.


The banquet will be on Monday March 5 at 6:30 p.m. and probably at the Rushville Lions Club – same place as last year. Cost will be $14 per person or less (subsidy out of league treasury). More later.  Contact Dave Gibbs for questions.



The former Ladies STUCK Evening Study group has decided to continueLadies Group to meet and to share in discussion around several books – and YOU are invited to join them. Their next book, "It's Not Fair - Learning to Love the Life You Didn't Choose," is a "fun, witty but very precise talk about the hardships we all face in life" along with "how big God is and how little we often understand Him." The group meets on Thursdays and invites other women to join them. Please contact the church office if you would like to be part of this upcoming time of study, discussion, and friendship.



Catechism News

Did you know ALL Catechism students need to fill-out "Sermon Note" forms each Sunday they attend worship?

If you are in Catechism, watch for our "new & improved" sermon note forms, fill one out each week you are in worship, and then turn in to Deacon Diane or her mail-slot in the office hallway.






Secret Sisters



Be A Secret Sister!

Each year, women of St. Peter's sign up and participate in this fun way to touch a sister in Christ with a monthly remembrance--an inspirational item or card or other small token of friendship.  Participants complete a form with information about likes, hobbies, collections and other information to help in choosing these small remembrances.  Matches are made by early January and then the fun begins.  An exchange box is available in the kitchen to "secretly" drop off a gift--AND to find one left for YOU!!  There's even a notebook to write a note of thanks.  Debbie and Joni would love to have more women particpate!  If you are interested or want more information, contact Debbie or Joni as soon as possible and  pick up a participant form.  Please have ALL forms returned by the end of December so that matches can be drawn in early January.





Shelter MealsEmergency Shelter Meals

Each month, St Peter's provides meals for the Lutheran Social Services Emergency Shelter – Faith Mission.


Our hope is to have at least two people to share the responsibilities for each of our chosen dates to serve 24 people. Currently, the shelter is running with nearly half the dates each month not covered.


Meals do not need to be elaborate, only nourishing and filling. Some are finding this a great way to gather with family members or friends and share in service as they plan and prepare a meal. Consider your calendar and when you might have time in the coming months. If you have an opening outside the dates listed in the bulletin, contact Faith Mission or our coordinators to find out if you can cover a needed opening.


Please help us to share the need for this ministry of caring. If you would like more information, contact any of St Peter's coordinators - Cathy Goodman, Jeanne Carney, Chris & Holly Griffin – or the church office (740.653.1950).

There is definitely a hint of fall in the air! Crisp mornings and bright blue skies herald in the changing season. The racks at We Care are also undergoing a transformation. Shorts and sleeveless tops are being replaced with heavier pants and sweaters.


During the past two Thursdays the Corner was open, we saw 59 families come through our doors. A total of 190 lives were possibly impacted by this outreach. Over 1,148 items of clothing were distributed including, 52 items for Halloween, 41 additional school items, and several items for Lancaster's Homecoming dance. Over 137 volunteer hours were given to this ministry during the past four weeks.


Speaking of volunteers, We Care has two very hard workers that the clients don't see a lot of. They work tirelessly in our sorting room. When they are not sorting and hanging donations, you might find them "wrangling" hangers and accepting donations through our "drive-up" window! They also make sure our racks are stocked as they become depleted.  It takes everyone working together to make this outreach ministry possible.


Many, many thanks to the strong and able-bodied men that showed up after services Oct. 8th to help We Care. Your strong arms were appreciated more than you know! Keep working on that upper body strength because you will be called on to help again!


P.S. Thanks to the wives who either sent your husbands down to work or you were delayed in leaving church. You are appreciated, too!


Blessings, We Care Committee


altar flowers


Please check the Altar Calendar to see if you have signed up to provide the flowers for our altar in November.   It is highly recommended that the flowers be ordered by the Tuesday prior to the Sunday for which you signed up. The church office will need to know by the Tuesday prior to your designated Sunday the dedication you wish printed in the bulletin along with what you plan to do with the flowers, i.e., will you be taking the flowers yourself or donating them to the home bound.

You may order the flowers from the florist of your choice. However, they must be delivered to the church by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. We highly recommend Floral Originals (740-654-3333) as they have been doing the majority of our flowers for some time now and have an understanding with St. Peter's regarding delivery and are familiar with what works with our altar.

If you have any questions, please contact the church office.



Don't forget to bring in your loose change to be used to purchase food for the LSS Emergency Shelter for the multiple dates that are not covered by outside providers.
