Compassionate Care Needs Your Help!

Posted By Lauri Hubach
November 29, 2020 Category: Mission, Compassionate Care, Ministries

Due to COVID, Compassionate Care has not been able to do visitation to our homebound or those in care centers.   Recently, we received the OK to drop off “St Peter’s cares about you” bags, which will be quarantined for a day and then given to the specified person. The bags will be given out once a month.  Are you crafty or are you looking for something to give the kiddos or grandkids to do?  We would love to have some handmade cards or short note to add to the bags. Something done by children always puts a smile on the receiver’s face!  We will be doing 10-15 bags per month.  If you would like to donate any items, it would be appreciated. Some items are large print puzzle books, ink pens (no pencils please), adult coloring books & crayons, small boxes of raisins, small bags Goldfish crackers, chips, pretzels, popcorn, etc, hard candy, deck of cards,  cube box of tissue, trial size toothpaste, hand lotion,  deodorant, shampoo, chap stick, candy bars or anything you think they might enjoy.  If you prefer not to go out to shop and would like to make a small donation, checks can be made out to St. Peter’s with a notation it is for Care bags and dropped at church office or mailed.  If you prefer, cash may be dropped off at the church office in an envelope marked Care bags. Items may be dropped off in the bin in Walker Lobby marked Care

2020 VBS will be Virtual! The team at GO! Curriculum has designed a 3-day "backyard" VBS that is custom made for churches and families during the COVID19 shutdown. We have thought through every aspect of the VBS experience and made it so user friendly that any family can easily do it at home. With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads kids step-by-step through each day, BOLT VBS is the perfect quarantine-friendly solution for your church or family. After months of virtual learning, many kids are already experiencing screen-fatigue. With that in mind, BOLT has struck the perfect balance between video content and in-person games and activities. TO REGISTER: EMAIL: dir.ed@stpetersamherst.org and say you would like to participate. Please include a mailing address so we can mail you an information packet which will include the link to the parent portal. You may do this VBS at your pace and convenience. 3 days in a row, 1 day a week...however you would like. Each day is approximately 1 1/2 hours of

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
