St. Peter's E-News:

E-News for Friday, October 30, 2020

Dear Friends,

Our Journey with Jesus this week causes us to examine if our talk matches our walk. Are we acting out of love of God, or talking so that others will be impressed with who we would like them to believe we are? May we seek to act in ways that express our love for God and others.

We will be worshipping in person and livestreaming via Facebook 9am on Sunday mornings. You need not have a Facebook account to watch and listen. You are in my thoughts and prayers. If you need anything, please call my cell phone 573-832-2475.


  • This Sunday is the end of Daylight Savings time.
    Please turn your clocks back one hour.
  • Sunday School will begin again on Sunday, November 1 after worship.
  • A carryout Turkey Supper will be held on Saturday, November 21 with a limited menu. There will be no Quilt Auction or Country Store this year.
  • Cookie Sale will be on Saturday, December 12. Boxes will be prepackaged and sold from the church foyer. Please bring your cookies to church by Thursday, December 10.
  • Calling all writers! I am looking for church members who would like to write a short (100 words or so) reflection for each of the Sundays of Advent based on the scripture for that Sunday. These reflections would be included in the weekly mailing/e-news for that week. If you would be interested in writing a reflection, please let me know.
  • I’m looking for woodworkers to make simple Advent Candle holders to give to our church members who choose to worship at home this Advent season.  I am also looking for people to help make luminaries for Christmas and Advent worship. Please let me know, if you can help.
  • Totenfest will be on Sunday, November 22 with a Blue Christmas theme. There will be a Christmas tree with blue ornaments on it. If you have an ornament that you would like to hang on the tree to remember a loved one who passed, please bring it to church. If you have a photo of a loved one that you would like to have included in a slide show that I will create, please send it to me as an email attachment or drop it by church.

Prayers and Blessings,

Pastor Stephanie DeLong
