“God’s Work. Our Hands.” Let’s join together as a community of faith of all ages and make an impact! We will kick off the first Sunday of Sunday school on September 10 with a Compassion Service Project for everyone. We will be joining ELCA congregations across the country in a service Sunday. As part of this project, we will be partnering with WELCA to provide school supplies to children in need all over the world. We invite all of the members of St. Peter to take part in this project. Since this is a good time of the year to purchase school supplies we wanted to let you know the items that we will be collecting so you can purchase items now if you choose. In order to keep the School Kits equal only the exact items can be included in the kits. Due to the areas that some of the supplies may be sent, please do not include any patriotic or camouflage items. Supplies will be collected from Sunday, Sept 10 – Sunday, October 8.
Items Needed In Each Kit: 4 – 70 sheet notebooks (wide or college ruled), 1 – 30 centimeter ruler or ruler with centimeters on side & inches on the other, 1 Pencil sharpener, 1 Pair of blunt safety scissors, 5 Unsharpened #2 Pencils with erasers, 5 Black or Blue Ballpoint pens (not gel), 1 Box of 16 or 24 crayons, 1 – 2 1/2 inch eraser, 1 – Sturdy drawstring bag (This will be provided by Sunday School.)
