We also hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! and the power of the Holy Spirit: Make a friend,

It is, of course, that time of year when we have
the opportunity to make New Years resolutions. This is Jesus command to us in Matthew 28:18In that spirit, Im asking you to consider the Vision 20:

Holy
Communion
every
Sunday? Beginning in January 2016,
St. Peters will be offering the sacrament
of Holy Communion each Sunday of the
month (exclusive of fifth Sundays) and all
church festivals. Why do we offer
Communion so often?

Holy Communion is a gift from God that


offers both the forgiveness of sins and the
strengthening of faith. Anyone who sins
(and that is every one of us) should
hunger and thirst for Gods forgiveness
found in the body and blood of Christ, in,
with, and under the consecrated elements
of bread and wine.
In so much as we are all miserable sinners
in bondage to sin and constantly assailed
by the evils of this world and the evils
within, we should, as Martin Luther
advocated, receive the sacrament of Holy
Communion as often as possible. In his
preface to The Small Catechism, Luther
writes, For if they [the people] believed
that they had so much evil and needed so
much good, they would not neglect the
sacrament, in which help against such evil
is provided and in which so much good is
given. It would not be necessary to
compel them with any law to receive the
sacrament. Instead, they would come on
their own, rushing and running to it; they
would compel themselves to come and
would insist that you give them the
sacrament. (Italics added for emphasis.)
In this wicked age, when Christians and
Christian values are under attack, it is a
comfort to know that we can always come
and seek refuge within His body, the
church. Here, in Gods house, in the
sacrament of Holy Communion, Christ
comes and dwells among us and within
us, filling us with His presence, His grace,
and His strength. May we always receive
this gift with thanksgiving and joy.

Want a worthwhile New Years


resolution? Commit yourself to daily

Bible reading and study. Here are some great


ways to make Gods Word a part of your daily
routine:
1) Get into Gods Word. Pick up one of
the new ESV Bibles in the narthex and
set aside a time to read each day.
Donations for these Bibles of $12.50
each can be made payable to St.
Peters with Bibles in the memo line.
2) Let Gods Word interrupt your life.
Download the St. Peters Church app
on your smart phone or tablet to
receive daily devotions each morning
or, if you prefer, find these devotions
posted daily on the Carolinas Mission
District website carolinasnalc.org. You
can also receive a weekly verse text by
texting the word "Drops" to 614-3285636, or by signing up for a weekly
email at http://2hoots.com/users/
add/59. . (Be sure to check the box for
"Weekly Sunday Message.")

3) Listen to Gods Word. Come to


worship each week on Sundays and
Wednesdays to hear Gods Word
proclaimed. Invite Gods Word into
your life by utilizing apps such as
Bible Gateway. Many Bible apps have
the option to listen to the Bible, so you
can listen to Gods Word wherever
you go. This option is perfect for
morning or afternoon commutes to
work and school.
4) Remember Gods Word. Clip the
weekly memory verse from the
bulletin each week and tape it in a
prominent place where you spend a
lot of time. The rear view mirror of
your car, the bathroom mirror, and
the refrigerator are just a few ideas.
Take a few moments each day
committing Gods Word to memory.

Stewardship Thoughts
The Law of Eager Willingness
This writing comes from the 9th Chapter of the
book The 33 Laws of Stewardship written by
Dave Sutherland and Kirk Nowery.
Wise stewards joyfully choose to support
Gods work and do Gods will.
Eager willingness to give is the most reasonable,
intelligent response to Gods blessings upon us.
Since everything we have and everything we are
is the result of His grace, why not be eager? Why
not be willing? Nothing else makes sense.
The willing giver chooses to be open toward
God and man. Too many believers are closed
and exclusive when they ought to be open and
inclusive. Openness is the normal state for a
yielded heart. To be otherwise is to limit the flow
of Gods blessing. Its a daily choice, simply
voicing ones yieldedness, saying Lord, here am
I, use me as your servant, guide me as your
steward.
The willing giver encourages others to give,
inspiring them by example. Of all the ways in
which King David inspired his people as a leader,
his generous giving had perhaps the most impact
because it was something literally every one of
his subjects could imitate. Not everyone could
lead forces into battle, nor judge complex
situations, nor oversee an entire nations well
being; but everyone could give generously, and
they were inspired to do so by a powerful
example. When you give willingly, God can use
your example to encourage others to do likewise.
The willing giver sees the pleasure of
sacrifice, not the pain. Giving often demands
sacrifice, and sacrifice always has a measure of
pain. But, ironically, sacrifice can also have its
share of pleasure if we simply remember why
were doing what we do, why were giving as we
are. What is our sacrifice, really? Are we not just
giving back to God what He gave to us in the first
place? Willingness to give, whatever the cost,
ought to be prompted by the pleasure of serving
a gracious God.

Stewardship Finance Committee

INVITATION TO SUNDAY SCHOOL

We invite you to join us for Sunday School on


Sunday mornings. We know you will enjoy the

of the Sunday School program.
Jesus and the rainbow, ringing bells, music,
Bible verses, learning and reading about God,
the prayers at the end, singing songs about
Jesus, making crafts, watching videos, being
with my friends and learning about God
together, because I love Jesus.
Psalms 119:105: Thy word is a lamp unto my
feet and a light unto my path.

WOMENS BIBLE STUDY


STARTING IN JANUARY
He Speaks to Me: Preparing to
Hear from God by Priscilla Shirer
A common question of many Christians is,
How can I know when God is speaking to
me? Priscilla Shirer uses the account of God
speaking to Samuel to show how God speaks
to Christians and how we can discern His
voice and position ourselves to respond. In
He Speaks to Me, participants will discover
how God spoke to Samuel, Samuels response,
and how He speaks to believers today. They
will be encouraged to listen and respond to
Gods voice. And, by listening and obeying
Him, women will experience spiritual growth,
Christian discipline and the desire to serve.
This 7 week study with videos and a
workbook will be led by Lisa Leitzsey and will
begin January 25, 2016. Please join us in the
Youth Room on Monday evenings from 6:308:00PM. Visitors and friends are welcome! To
sign up and order workbook ($13), please
