Newsletter - October

From Pastor’s Desk

October in our wider Cultural world is usually seen as a time of Ghost and Goblins when we celebrate Halloween on October 31st. Yet, as Lutherans it is on the same day we celebrate the Reformation. The reason we celebrate the Reformation on that day is simple. On October 31st 1917 Martin Luther nailed his Ninety Five Thesis on the Castle Church in Wittenberg. The reason he nailed it to that door was it was practically the Universities bulletin board.

What was Luther addressing when he wrote the 95 Thesis? He was addressing a few controversies at thetime, and one of the issues was how a person saved. "The true Treasure of the church is not the superabundant merits of Christ and the Saints, subject to Papal control, but the most holy Gospel of the Glory and grace of God, freely offered to repentant Sinners by Faithful Pastors." In other words, it is the free gift of Salvation offered to us by Christ that Saves people, and nothing else. For this Luther was called a Heretic. His 95 theses along with his later writings helped start the reformation.

Today the whole Christian Church has come to appreciate Luther. Even in Catholic circles Luther is seen as a worthy Partner in theological dialogue. Which means Luther and his writings have helped the Catholic Church a great deal as they reach out to other church bodies and have ecumenical dialogues.

Greetings from Preschool!

We’ve had an amazing start to the school year and I am so blessed & thankful for 2 perfect classes this year - 15 students total!!! We’ve talked about our classroom rules, learned about each other, had our weekly themes and enjoyed everyday. Thanks to Emilie Parsons for taking our school pictures this week, I can’t wait to see all the amazing smiles!!

As always, I am so thankful to have this job and be your preschool teacher. St Peter Preschool committee, the church members and everyone else have been so supportive with everything. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. In God’s Blessings, Mrs Rees

Newsletter - September

From Pastor’s Desk:

I’m writing this in Late August. The school year is fast approaching. For the last few weeks I have been talking to students at both Churches. I always ask them, “Are you ready for school?” And most of them answer yes. I have also asked, “are you excited about school?” The answer usually, NO! It’s true rarely are kids excited about going back to school. I certainly was never excited about going back to school. I do see a lot of parents excited for their children. And think we can be excited as a child to go back to school, since we should be excited about someone else learning. This September both churches are going to resume Sunday School. I think it would be fitting to pray for the teachers and the students:

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, even as You are committed to the care and nature of children to Your people, this coming school year graciously enlighten those who teach and those who are committed to their instruction that they may know Your eternal truth and trust in You all the days of their lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN

Sunday School and Catechism Classes

Catechism Classes will begin on Wednesday, September 4th at 6:30pm the first class including a parent meeting will be held at St Peter.

Sunday School – Join us on September 8th at 9AM for our FIRST day of Sunday School as we celebrate Rally Day at St. Peter! Don’t forget to bring your backpacks for our backpack blessing during our 10AM worship service.

Joint Council Meeting

Monday, September 16th at 7:30pm at St Peter.

Pastor's Desk,

LCMS-2019-Youth-Gathering-Logo-670x359.jpg

This July I will travel with the St Paul Youth group to The LCMS National Youth Gathering. We are also joined by some St Peter Youth Members and a few youth members of other churches. The last time I went to a LCMS National Youth Gathering, it was when I was in High School. It was in New Orleans. There were some good speakers and I went to some good breakout sessions. After a whole week there is one thing I remember clearly though, how many Lutheran Kids were there. It was Shocking, I think it was like 40,000 youth. It was good to know there were so many other kids that had the same faith I had. I hope the youth we take have wonderful experiences of their own and learn more about their Creator on this trip.

This year I have had several articles about Prayer, so I wanted to end this article with a prayer for Travel:

Lord God our Father, You kept Abraham and Sarah in safety throughout the days of their pilgrimage, you led the children of Israel through the midst of the sea and by a star you led the Wise Men to the Infant Jesus. Protect and guide us now in this time as we set out to travel. Make our ways safe and our homecoming joyful, and bring us at least to our heavenly home, where You dwell in glory with Your Son and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. AMEN.

[Lutheran Service Book page 287].

Our Youth Groups are heading to Minneapolis!

66687832_382835045699099_2892815612369698816_o.jpg

Thank You - The Youth group would like to thank everyone for their support as the youth prepare for the trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota July 10-15, as we have a group of 16 attending this year. We wanted to make sure you all knew how much your support means to us and we will be attending the National Youth Gathering. We wanted to let you know that it cost $1200.00 a person to cover the registration, hotel and transportation for the event. We have done numerous fundraising activities and would not have been able to reduce the cost without the help of the congregation and community. The youth groups cannot say thank you enough for all your support. If anyone would still like to give a donation for the youth groups attending, we are able to accept any donations until July 5. These donations will help offset the cost of food and other activities throughout the time at the gathering. Thank you! St. Paul, St. Peter, and St. Stephens Youth Groups The Reverend James Fundum will be leading our Churches in Worship Service on July 14th as Pastor Stuenkel will be traveling with the Youth Groups to Minneapolis.

St Peter’s - VBS THANK YOU

Thank you to all of our VBS volunteers for taking the time to help this week. We had a total of 35 students and the kids sure had a BLAST learning through science-inspired Christ-focused bible lessons. On Friday June 21st, we ended our VBS with a wonderful closing program where the kids were able to show their friends and family what they learned over the week.

Newsletter - June

From Pastor’s Desk

Over the last several months I have been discussing how to pray. I gave an outline of what prayers can look like. We did not discuss WHEN to pray or WHERE to pray.

Answering the question of when and where should you pray, I think it is helpful to use an analogy. I often find people who work out regularly do it the same time every day, and have a specific workout routine. I think approaching our Christian life in a similar manor can be helpful. If you find a good time and place to pray in your house I would encourage you to try praying in that same place at the same time each day for a week. If it works try it for another week. If that works try a month. You might be surprised that once you get in the habit of doing something you begin doing it without thinking.

What should you do with that time? I would encourage you to take your bulletin home each week. That gives you three readings to do, or you could begin reading a book of the bible; maybe a few chapters. Then I would encourage you to pray after the reading. If you look at your small catechism you will notice there is a Morning Prayer, and an Evening Prayer. Depending on what time you are praying, you can decide which prayer to use. The Morning Prayer asks us to face our day knowing we are God's redeemed Children. The Evening Prayer invites us ask forgiveness for our sinful behavior, and ask God forgiveness. [I think it is also good to pray before each Meal.] - Rev. Jacob Stuenkel

Our Seminarian

Our Seminarian student adopted by St. Peter Lutheran Church has received his Vicarage assignment. A Vicar is a placement for one year as an assistant to a Pastor. Ryan Pumphrey will be the Vicar at Lutheran Life Village in Ft. Wayne, IN.

healthy-church-solutions-prayer.jpg

Over my last few newsletter articles I have been encouraging everyone to pray more this year. I believe one of the reasons we don’t pray a lot, is we don’t know how to.

I have been suggesting an outline to use for Prayers. I have already suggested you begin with an ADDRESS. In the Lord’s Prayer, Our Father is an address to Our Father in Heaven. You follow an address with a Rational. In the Lord’s Prayer our Father who art in Heaven is the Rational. He is in Heaven so He can see everything and knows everything. You can then add what we call a Petition. These are the Things you actually pray for, so it’s sometimes called the requests. Then came The Benefit; this is what we hope is accomplished by our prayer.

The next part of a prayer is the Termination or sometimes called the conclusion. The termination is what you end the prayer with. It can be very simple, “in Your name we pray, Amen.” This might seem simple enough, but it sometimes is very beautiful way to end a prayer. The Termination often times takes on a very Trinitarian character. For example some prayers end like this: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning; is now, and will be forever. Amen.

We usually just end our prayers with AMEN. I do believe ending a prayer by readdressing God can help us remember who we direct our prayers towards. Do we just pray to any God, or do we direct our prayers towards the Triune God which is revealed to us in Scripture. I hope for all of us it’s the God we learn about in Scripture.

Thank you to the following who donated Easter flowers that decorated the Sanctuary!

Greeting from Preschool!

Can’t believe we’ve reached the last month of school for the 2018/2019 school year!

April was busy with our monthly library visit. Bible lesson with Miss Evie, visit from firefighter Kyle Richards and his fire truck, and our annual St Judy Trike-a-Thon next week!! We’re also working on our numbers and have had the themes of weather, caterpillars, Easter, space and lions! May will be busy as well as we start to prepare for preschool graduation!

Our spring open house was a huge success in April. Lots of new families and we’ve enrolled a lot for Fall already! We love Preschool!

Pastor’s Message

Over my last few newsletter articles I have been encouraging everyone to pray more this year. I believe one of the reasons we don’t pray a lot, is we don’t know how to.

I have been suggesting an outline to use for Prayers. I have already suggested you begin with an ADDRESS. In the Lord’s Prayer, Our Father is an address to Our Father in Heaven. You follow an address with a Rational. In the Lord’s Prayer our Father who art in Heaven is the Rational. He is in Heaven so he can see everything and knows everything. You can then add what we call a Petition. These are the Things you actually pray for, so it’s sometimes called the requests.

I would suggest some of your Petitions be followed by what’s called The Benefit. Here is an example; Let’s say you pray, “Lead us not into temptation”. Then you say the BENEFIT. You might say, so I do not fall into “false believe, despair, and other great shame and vice.”

This is the benefit to not being lead into temptation. You do not always have to say a benefit, but it can be helpful. It can make your prayers more meaningful, and it can also help your prayers not to be selfish ones. It’s hard to ask for a new car, if you can’t come up with a good Holy Benefit. You could pray for a car in this way. Let’s see what this would look like: God I pray that I can get a car, so that, I can get to work and serve my neighbor.

Here is an example from the Prayers of the Church for The First Sunday in April: [Address] Holy Father, [Rational] You raised up Your Son from the dead so that He might bestow upon us His Holy Spirit and the forgiveness of sins. [Petition] Grant that we might live joyfully as those who have been crucified and raised up with Christ in Holy Baptism, and [The Benefit] that we might boldly testify of Him, His forgiveness and peace, to all who will hear. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

March was a busy month in Preschool. We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday early in the month ~ always a big hit with the preschoolers. Ms. Barb from the Napoleon Public Library always visits us each month with new books to read. Ms. Evie comes monthly to teach us a wonderful Bible lesson ~ we love her visits! The leprechauns made a visit around St. Patrick's Day ~ and made quite the mess in our classroom! We tried so hard to trap one, but it didn't work! Henry County Hospital came to visit and talked with us about Poison Prevention. A wonderful presentation from them and much appreciated they came to speak to us.

April will consist of our library visit and Bible lesson. Firefighter Kyle comes back this month and will bring the Florida/Flatrock firetrucks!!! We can't wait. We will have our 3rd annual St. Jude Trike-a-Thon the end of the month ~ always such a fun day and raising money for a great cause.

Over my last few newsletter articles I have been encouraging everyone to pray more this year. I believe one of the reasons we don’t pray a lot, is we don’t know how to.

I have been suggesting a FOUR PART outline to use for Prayers. I have already suggested you begin with an ADDRESS. In the Lord’s Prayer, Our Father is an address to Our Father in Heaven. You follow an address with a Rational. In the Lord’s Prayer our Father who art in Heaven is the Rational. He is in Heaven so he can see everything and knows everything.

You can then add what we call a Petition. The Petition is best described as the “Request”. Asking for your daily bread in the Lord’s Prayer is a Petition. It is something you want, and you are asking for it. We can see in the Lord’s Prayer there are multiple Petitions. Thy Kingdom Come is a petition. In the same way when a person prays they can have many Petitions or requests as they need.

The Petition is usually the reason you are praying in the First place. For this reason, it’s usually not the part of the Prayer you have to think about. Yet, I believe putting a Petition after an Address and a Rational helps us to think about who we are addressing our Petitions to. For instance we might all like a cooler car or a nicer house, but is this something we really want to ask God of? So next time you think about something you want to pray for, consider saying all three parts of the Prayer. – Pastor Jacob Stuenkel
