The September 2018 Announcer

Announcements for September 23, 2018 - Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

Welcome to St. Peter’s UCC and thanks for joining us!  “Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth” (Psalm 54:2, NIV). And help me also listen to you during this time of worship.

Everyone is invited to go downstairs after worship to enjoy Coffee Hour,hosted by Andre Gloeckner and Marcia Hilliard.  Thanks to them!

Thanks to everyone who worked, donated, baked, attended or who otherwise supported our Rummage & Bake Sale! A special thanks to co-coordinators Annie Noorts, Kathy Zipperer and Beth Lanford.  Also Bake Sale organizer Barb Todd and all who gave time, energy, ideas, muscle, sweat, money and more to this major fundraiser event of the year!!

Thanks to everyone who served in the ministries of the church this morning!

After coffee hour, or later, we’d like to suggest you go to The Village Inn.  Today is our fundraiser through them; we receive 20% from the proceeds of every order – dine in, carryout or delivery- that specifies you are with the St. Peter’s UCC fundraiser. Especially all the rummage workers. Give yourself a break today and get your food from there, put your feet up and enjoy your day, cooking free!

Office Manager Laura Olson will be out of the office this Tuesday but Pastor Richard will be in.  He will have 10 AM – Noon as the weekly “drop in” hours with no appointment needed.

This Saturday the 29th is the day our Sloppy Joes will be served at A Just Harvest.  Any Sloppy Joes that have not come in yet must be brought in by today if frozen, and no later than Wednesday the 26th if fresh.  Pastor is out from 2:15-3:30 PM that day.

CROP WALK!  It’s October 14th before the Oktoberfest Dinner!  More shared at the Mission Moment.  Dan Guenther and Susan Garcia have pledge sheets so far and welcome anyone’s pledged financial support as we welcome more St.Peter’s walkers!

The Cemetery Board meets after worship.

Next Sunday the Sermon topic is “The Generosity of God” The lector is scheduled to be Carolyn Van Til, with Heidi Tarzian attending our Nursery.

The Fundraising Committee is meeting October 8th from 7 - 8:30 PM.  We need input from lots of people to make this successful, so please plan to come, especially those with ideas, we’d love some new ones!

Our Pet Blessing Service will be Sunday Oct. 21st at 3 PM. Check out our Facebook page for more details and look for an upcoming flyer.

IF YOU’D LIKE TO BE “IN THE KNOW” like our Facebook page.  It can be easily found by typing in “stpeteruccskokie” in the Facebook browser.  We often post last minute reminders as well as share fun, informative and important things.  The more likes we have, the more it will be seen and we spread the word about our wonderful church; and all at NO COST to us.  If you need any help doing that, see or give Laura a call in the office.
