Many thanks to all who helped make this year’s Block Party a success! Even the threat of a severe thunderstorm didn’t dampen our festivities! Thank you to all who donated, and all who helped, with set up and with serving! I would like to thank you all personally, but I’m not sure I saw everyone that helped…so if you did….THANK YOU! A huge shout out to Boy Scout Troop 427 for all their help. Many thanks to the committee that helped to organize this event, Kurt, Kody and Pam Beiswenger, Barb and Jim Wiley, Judy McCurdy, and Shelley Harmych. Looking forward to another great event next year! Speaking of the block party, there are leftovers! Please join us in the Fellowship Hall after church for hotdogs, beans, watermelon, chips, cookies, and whatever else! Afterwards, the remainder of the chips will be donated to Amherst High School’s Leo Club Backpack project that sends food home with needy kids for the weekend. Our September Noisy Collection will be donated to this project as well. Part of our block party was the Amherst Police Department’s Cram the Cruiser. If you peeked in either of the cruisers at the block party, you saw that they had a very successful collection, and today’s Noisy Collection will go toward that as well. We can be very proud of our

Ohio Council of Churches 100th Anniversary Event!

If you would like to register to attend this event, please click here! The Ohio Conference is proud to co-sponsor The Ohio Council of Churches (OCC) 100th anniversary event. The OCC remains devoted in its 100th year to tackling the problems of racism through ecumenical partnership and vision. We in the Ohio Conference had already begun engaging with the OCC in discussions around hosting an event focused on ending racism; this event is one of the fruits of that discernment. For this event, with our assistance, the OCC has lined up workshops, worship, celebrations, and reflections around the work to fight racism. Our commitment to working with ecumenical partners like the OCC to arrange for continuing anti-racism work in our communities is just one of the ways your Conference is offering service to our members and churches. With that commitment in mind, we have engaged the Pulitzer Prize-Winning writer, and Miami Herald columnist, Leonard Pitts, Jr., to deliver a keynote address at the OCC 100th anniversary gathering on September 6, 2019, at Methodist Theological School in Ohio (MTSO). Mr. Pitts, in this quote from his personal web site, is to his core a writer. "In a career that now spans 43 years, Leonard Pitts, Jr. has worked as a columnist, a college professor, a radio producer and a lecturer. But those are just the job titles. If you ask him what he does – what he is – he'll tell you now what he would have told you then.

June Cottage Conversations

June Cottage Conversations

Posted By Lauri Hubach
May 28, 2019 Category: Events, Worship

The Transition Team is coordinating "Cottage Conversations" for June, between the 18th and 27th.  The purpose of these conversations is for the congregation to share appreciative experiences of St. Peter's. These conversations will help the transition team determine what the values are for St. Peter's.  These will be discussed with the congregation as a whole at a later date. The ultimate goal is to determine the core values of St. Peter's and then determine what God is calling St. Peter's to do.  Once this is determined, the Transition Team can start on the profile for the Search Team to use in finding our new pastor. It is important that all who can participate, do.  If someone cannot participate on the provided dates, please let the office or transition team know, so we can set something up with you at a later date. Sign up will be posted in the Sanctuary.  Individuals can also call the office and Katie will let you know what is
