Homelessness and Affordable Housing Discussion

Tuesday, October 15th

    Are you concerened about the lack of affordable housing in Stillwater? It is a particularly significant problem for low-income individuals and families who work in town - but can't afford to live here. What can the community and its members do?


   Join other concerned citizens for a learning, discussion and action planning session at the Stillwater Public Library on Tuesday, Oct. 15th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.


    St. Peter's, along with some other Stillwater congregations, is a co-sponsor of this event. Come to learn more and brainstorm how we might help ensure that more affordable housing becomes available in this community.


Trunk or Treat!


Sunday, October 27th 

   Grab the kids and come to "Trunk or Treat" at St. Peter's on October 27th. We'll do the candy collecting outside, starting at 10:35 am. If there's rain, the festivities we'll be inside in church.

   Collecting for UNICEF (the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) is a long-time Halloween tradition. Bring your coins and dollar bills to put in the kid's UNICEF boxes. This offering benefits kids around the world where they have need for food, shelter and medical care. 

    Celebrate Halloween this year with treats and giving!


Our New Book Read!


    Fall has arrived; time to settle down with a good book!

    Join other readers at St. Peter's as we dig into the young adult novel Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. It tells the story of two girls' search for a fugitive billionaire with the promise of a $100,000 reward  A life-long friendship, the work-ings of the mind and the power of love emerge as its true themes.

   We'll read during October and gather for a discussion in early November. Check this website (or next month's newsletter) for the date.

We Compost at St. Peter's!

     We all know the need to take good care of the environment today is very real - and we are doing something about that at St. Peter's. We practice three-stream refuse manage- men by making available and using clearly-marked trash, recycling and composting containers for all items used in the church. 

      When we aren't using our china we're also using compostable plates and cups at St. Peter's in order to reduce what would go into the landfill.

     Join us in doing what YOU can to reuse, recycle and repurpose. There are so many ways to do it - composting, buying used, giving away what you don't need to someone who does. Let's all take good care of God's good creation!
