Sunday School Picture
Each year we bring the life changing knowledge of our Lord and Savior to our Sunday School students and their families. This school year we are joining the Sunday School programs of both St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and Light of Christ Lutheran Church, together called the United Proclamation of the Gospel (UPG). Sunday School will be held from 9:30-10:30 a.m. on the Light of Christ Campus. We are looking forward to welcoming the people of St. Peter’s who will be joining us. We have already come to know many of the children and youth who attended VBS at Light of Christ this summer. If you would like to join our Sunday School staff or Educational Ministry Committee, you are always welcome. Please see Lynn Terry to talk about the opportunities for ministry within the UPG. We are looking forward to making new friends and seeing all of our returning friends. Welcome!!!
Students enroll in Light of Christ’s Confirmation program in the late summer before their 8th grade school year. Students are confirmed in November of their 10thgrade year. The confirmation program consists of a series of classes, participation, in an elective program, a retreat, and regular attendance at worship services and Sunday School. Please call Lynn Terry at 610-861-0645 to register.

“Brewing Theology!” – Every Month
Join your friends for a wonderful discussion in a relaxing atmosphere with the ability to share in beverage and food! Brewing Theology is a night when sisters and brothers get together at Tap’s Restaurant, Route 378, for informal discussions about faith and the world around us. We are currently meeting on the second Monday of the month, at 6:00 PM (though some of us are there earlier to eat) and share time of fellowship together). Our gathering normally lasts until approximately 8:00 PM. This is a great place to ask questions and simply process the world around us through a faith perspective!
Stories of Faith Bible Study
Each and every Thursday, many of your sisters and brothers gather with Pastor Jerry to hear, to discuss, to reflect on God’s Word. Many people seem to be a little intimidated to join the Bible study, fearing that they do not know or understand Holy Scripture. However this study is truly designed to offer insights into the background of Holy Scripture and search out the thoughts and impact of this Scripture in our daily lives. For many who join us at this ministry, there is a feeling of excitement in that this time together helps prepare them for the coming Sunday’s worship as we discuss the texts that will be shared in our weekend worship celebrations. This ministry is currently offered on our Light of Christ Campus at 9:00 AM and 6:30 PM. Please consider joining us for this opportunity to hear and learn more about how God calls us to live in the year 2019!

Summer Women’s Bible Study
During June, July, and August, the Women’s Bible study will gather on the St. Peter’s campus in the Social Room on the parking lot level from 9:30 to 11 am. Use the parking lot entrance and ring the CHURCH doorbell, and you will be let in. Coffee and tea and some light snacks are always part of the morning. All women are prayerfully encouraged to be part of this gathering where joys and concerns are shared, prayers are said, and time is spent studying Gods’ word.
This summer study in June, July, and August, will focus on the ten-Chapter book of Esther. Although God’s name does not appear in the book of Esther, God is present in Esther’s life. This story occurs while the Jews are living in exile under the authority of the Persians. Come whenever you can and study along with other women of the UPG to understand Esther’s role in God’s story. The author of this 3-month study, is Bishop Kay Ward of the Moravian Church. She has written previous Gather Bible studies. Kay wrote this study about Esther while she was recovering from some severe laryngitis, being told not to whisper, sing, yell or do any public speaking for three months! Kay “loved using ‘voice’ as a theme for exploring the book of Esther.”
The dates for Summer Bible studies are: June 4 & 18; July 2 & 16; August 6 & 20.
Formerly the UPG men’s fellowship, the Fellowship Study which meets on Wednesday mornings at 6:30 on St. Peter’s campus, and is now open to any person, regardless of gender, who would like to join us! We are beginning an exciting new study entitled “Animate” published by the 1517 Publishing House (formerly Augsburg Fortress). In this study we will be discussing issues of faith, for example “the radical nature of Christ’s love to the world.” We always have coffee and wonderful fellowship available. A time for sharing our joys and concerns is always available and we normally complete our time together by 7:30 AM for those who need to get to work. We hope that you consider joining us for this wonderful opportunity.
