January Newsletter

As we begin the New Year of 2022, it is always a great time for personal reflection, evaluation, goal setting, and forward thinking. Heidi and I have planned what we call a “committee meeting” for this evening for that specific purpose. We look at our calendars and plan out what we want to do. We evaluate our budget and plans for what we want to accomplish financially in the next period of time. We reflect on God’s provision and goodness to us and think through what we need to change in our lives. When we are doing well, we have these “committee meetings” every month to help keep us on track. When we are not regularly meeting, I feel disorganized, without a plan, and just getting through each day without a focus on what’s really important in life.

It remains one Christian holiday that is Biblical and wonderful for us to celebrate as followers of Christ.

September Newsletter

Last month in my article to our whole church, I introduced to you our plans for the fall season at St. Peter’s.
Much work has been done since I wrote that article and we are excited for what the Lord has in store for us. On
Sunday, September 12th we will kick-off a six-week sermon series and small group Bible study called, “Kingdom
Disciples.” Through this study you will be encouraged and challenged to live in such a way as to be intentionally
walking with Jesus Christ in your life.
