Prayer Shawl Ministry
A "prayer shawl" is a handmade garment made by someone who prayed during the creation process. The creator prays for God's blessing and comfort on the recipient of the shawl--even if we don't know who that might be. You can learn more about prayer shawl ministry at www.shawlministry.com.
St. Peter's Prayer Shawl ministry is open to any knitter or crocheter who loves to share her/his creations with others. We make prayer shawls to give away to women, men and children who are going through a difficult time or who are grieving a loss. Although most of our work is done on our own, we gather on the 2nd Saturday of each month (Sept - May) to fellowship, pray, and knit and crochet together. Knitters and crocheters of all levels are welcome to come. If you know someone who needs the comfort of a prayer shawl or want more information about this ministry, contact Pastor Ann.
Men’s Bible Study
The Men’s Bible study and breakfast meets on the second Saturday of each month from August to May. The group starts their meeting at McDonald's at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast and continues at the church around 8:45 a.m. for Bible study. Men of all ages are welcome to join in the fellowship and study.
We always welcome new men and their thoughts on the books studied at these meetings.
If you have any questions, contact Chuck Hemenway or the church office for more information.
The Afternoon Guild meeting is set for the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. The location of this meeting is held in the fellowship hall. These meetings consist of a bible study, fellowship and refreshments. Women of all ages are encouraged to come and join. Contact Betty Oblender or the church office with any questions or for more information.
There are currently sixteen women serving on Altar duty. Men are also welcome to serve in this capacity.
It is a privilege to prepare the sanctuary for the celebration of Holy communion. We serve as a form of praise to God and an expression of our gratitude for all He has done and is doing for us.
Serving generally involves one general meeting each fall to go over any concerns and to organize the schedule for the coming year. Two members serve each month, working together on Saturday to prepare for communion for the Saturday evening and Sunday morning services. One person cleans up after the 8:00 a.m. service and re-supplies for the 10:30 a.m. service. The other member on duty will clean up after the second service. members generally serve one or two months each year.
Having lost a few members the last few years, due to age, we welcome anyone who would like to serve in this ministry. For more information, contact Cindy Thayer or the church office.
