Sunday School

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!!!

UPG Lenten Fair
April 7

Come to the UPG Lenten Fair! On April 7,  from 9—10:30 AM,  in the LoC campus Fellowship Hall. The Fair will be filled with activities reflective of the Lenten and Easter season. People of all ages and from both campuses are invited! Young children may bring their Easter baskets to hold their crafts. We will color Easter eggs, make donuts and pretzels, make an Easter cross, have other treats to eat, crafts to make and games to play. We hope you can come!

“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!

Women’s Bible Study

On Tuesday, March 5 & 19, from 9:30 to 11 am, in the Social Room on the St. Peter’s Campus, all women of the UPG are welcome at the table. Ring the “St. Peter’s” doorbell and Kathi will let you in the building. Whether you have come for a long time, come occasionally, or have never been to a Bible study, there is a place for you at the table when you can come. Coffee/tea and some snacks will be ready. The Gospel of John: Meetings with Jesus is the title of the study written by Pastor Julie Kanarr. As we read the Gospel of John, it begins with the words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the be-ginning with God.” This is a reminder of how God was there at the beginning of time and continues to be with each of us every day of our lives. What a gift from God! And then to show how much God loves us, God gives us Jesus who experiences all the emotions and challenges of human life. The study helps women see how God/Jesus is always with us and understands the joys, sorrows, and challenges of this life. Faith grows and flourishes as we meet Jesus throughout our days and nights.

Prayerfully consider coming to the UPG Women’s Bible Study in March. There is a place for you at the table.

Men’s Fellowship is now Everyone’s Fellowship

The UPG men’s fellowship, which meets on Wednesday mornings at 6:30 on St. Peter’s campus, is now opening our arms 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.
