October Adult CE Opportunity

Join us during the four Sundays of October at 9 am for our Christian Education class titled, “Raising Our Youth.”  This class is for parents, grandparents, god-parents, aunts/uncles, and any adults that just want to sit in and participate.   

The Bible teaches in Deuteronomy 6, “These words shall be on your heart.  Teach them diligently to your children, talk of them when you sit at home, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise.”   

Part of our church promises as we celebrate the baptisms of our youth is to be a part of this covenant of supporting the children and their families.  Join us to see what we can do to help fulfill these promises.   


Faith, Food & Football - Throughout the NFL season we will have several gatherings at the Parsonage for those who want to tune into the Monday Night Game of the Week and enjoy fellowship, faith discussion and yummy food.  Our next gathering will be Monday, September 30th at 7 pm.  Bring a beverage(s) of your choice and a snack/dessert to share if you choose.  Everyone is welcome.  Stay for a quarter, a half, the entire game, or just for a little bit.   

Newsletter “The Keys” Available 

September’s edition of our monthly newsletter, “The Keys” is out.  You can access a copy via our website (, email a request to, or pick up a hard copy at either of the entrances of the church.   

Turkey Supper 

Mark your calendars for the 2019 Turkey Supper which will be on Saturday, November 2nd. 

The Turkey Supper Committee is also requesting that you save and bring your cool whip containers to the church.   


Bunco Night – Mark your calendars for our next Bunco Night.  October 18th, 7 pm and all are welcome to attend.  Stay tuned for more information. 


Village of Grant Park Survey 

The village of GP is seeking your input with a local survey in regards to the advantages of GP to potential residents, developers, and businesses considering in investing in GP.  You don’t have to be a resident to do the survey. 


Ministry Opportunity Available

We are looking for someone to fill our role of Youth Choir Director.  If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please let Pastor Kyle or someone from Church Council know.  

Scripture and Sermon Notes Journals Available

Looking for a way to record your Scripture and Sermon notes each Sunday? We will be selling these journals the next few weeks after church and in the church office for $10 each.  

Please let Pastor Kyle know if you are interested as we have some in stock, and if we run out (which would be great), we can always order more. 


Want to Give, but forgot your cash/check? 

In addition to EFT giving (see that announcement) there is another avenue that you can plug into your phone right now and its safe and protected. You can provide a credit card number or a bank account and set it up to give as frequently as you desire. Feel free to share the web address with others.  

Electronic (EFT) Giving – Are you interested in learning more about setting up your giving to St. Peter’s electronically? No more need to worry about checks, offering envelopes, etc. Let Pastor Kyle know if you’d be interested to give electronically and we’ll help you set it up. This is a GREAT way to make sure you are giving on a regular basis (even if you miss church due to illness, vacation, weather).  

Do you have an announcement, prayer concern or joy to share with the pastor and/or congregation?

            *For announcements, please sit near the front of the church prior to the service beginning and share your announcement during the opening announcement time and then return to your seat.

            ** If you have a prayer concern or joy, please write the information down and hand it to Pastor Kyle (or to an usher) prior to the service. Please note whether you want the information to be shared with the congregation or kept privately with the Pastor. 



The pinboard is intended as a place where you can find something your looking for, sell something you want to get rid of, or something you want to get word out about. It’s also a way to have people visit our website, check the “Pinboard,” and perhaps check other information on our website.
To have something posted on the website, simply send your information to and Dennis will post the information. Be sure to include your contact information. Questions? Call Dennis Granger, Website Manager at 815-465-6130. Visit the Pinboard here.
