In response to this year's heavy storm season, United Church of Christ Disaster Ministries is turning to church congregations to help overcome a shortage of much-needed cleanup buckets, stocked with essential supplies that are used after a natural disaster strikes.  We will be collecting your donations during the months of March and April.  Information about the items needed is on display in Sunday School entrance.  We appreciate your help in this worthwhile project!  Check out the display outside of the church office. Thank you!  - St. Peter's UCC Mission Committee     


Salvation Army Lunch – sadly, we are no longer going to the Salvation Army to serve the lunch each quarter.    The folks who used to work in the living accommodations no longer have that work to do since they have closed the shelters and they are now serving the food that comes already prepared.  It was a good ministry but the cutbacks have closed many of the Salvation Army services that we helped with and so we say “goodbye”.   





Those of you who follow our Face Book page please like it and share with your friends. 



The Christian Education Committee is asking for donations for the college exam care packages.  Individual wrapped snacks such boxes of cookies, peanut butter cheese cracker packs, granola bars, Pringles, gum, change for the soda machine, boxes of candy, peanuts, popcorn packets, cracker jacks, ect can be placed in the tubs marked College Exam care packages that are placed in the Sunday School entrance and the south entryway. Donations are needed before April 3rd.
