Dear Friends in Christ,
As we progress on our journey to the cross of
Good Friday and the empty tomb of Easter
Sunday I pray God is blessing you in your
Lenten disciplines of making an offering to the
poor, prayer, and fasting. As we noted last
month, these Lenten disciplines are our
adaptation and appropriation of Jesus’ teaching
on the three acts of righteousness in His
Sermon on the Mount. Of course, daily prayer,
fasting, and giving a money offering to the poor
are not practices we’ve “got to” do, they are
practices we “get to” do. Giving to those in
need, praying daily, and giving-up something for
Lent are resources God offers us to nourish and
strengthen our faith in Christ. And faith—faith in
Christ—is what is of the utmost importance!
I love the way Martin Luther talks about faith.
For example, in his sermon on John 3:16 (“For
God so loved the world…”), he says:
Faith is not a paltry and
petty matter… but it is a heartfelt
confidence in God through Christ
that Christ’s suffering and death
pertain to you and should belong
to you. The pope and the devil
have a faith too, but it is only a
“historical faith.” True faith does
not doubt; it yields its whole heart
to the conviction that the Son of
God was given into death for us,
that sin is remitted, that death is
destroyed, and that these evils
have been done away with—but,
more than this, that eternal life,
salvation, and glory, yes, God
Himself have been restored to
us, and that through the Son
God has made us His children.
There is no better news in the entire
world for us than this: through faith in the
crucified and risen Jesus Christ, God is
forgiving us sinners and is rescuing us from
judgment, evil and death. This is the Good
News we embrace! This is the Good News we
proclaim! This is the Good News that gives
Saint Peter’s Lutheran Church its reason for
being! May the truth and power of this Good

News become more and more real for each of
us this Lenten Season!
God loves you, and so do I!

Relay for Life
May 13, 2016
Lexington High School
In 2016 there will be 1,685,210 new cancer cases
and 595,690 cancer deaths in the United States.
How many will be our friends and family
members? We can make a difference by donating
to the American Cancer Society!
The majority of money given to St. Peter’s Relay
for Life efforts stay in our community to support:
Hope Lodge– free housing in Charleston, SC for
patients who have to travel away from home for
treatment; Road to Recovery– rides provided to
and from treatments; Look Good...Feel Better–
free service teaches women battling cancer to
improve their appearance and self images; Reach
for Recovery– matches breast cancer survivors
with people newly diagnosed; Research and
Clinical Trials– the hope for many battling this
disease.
American Cancer Society Is the largest nongovernmental funder of cancer research in the US.
We will gather in May 13th to celebrate our
survivors, remember our family and friends we
have loved who have lost their cancer battle and
fight back the only way we know how—by
donating our dollars. Mo donation is too small.
Please see Sharon James for options.
Make a difference, donate today!

Stewardship Thoughts
The Law of Constructive Contribution
This writing comes from the 11th Chapter of the book “The 33 Laws of Stewardship”
written by Dave Sutherland and Kirk Nowery.
The work of God is to be done by the people of God giving according to the will of
God. This law focuses on the work of Nehemiah and the Israelites that rebuilt the
city of Jerusalem.
The Law of Constructive Contribution was ruling in their hearts, and they kept going in
spite of all that stood in the way. In just 52 days, the wall was rebuilt and the people
celebrated God’s blessing and empowerment. If we look closely at the experience, the
lessons are clearly applicable to us as stewards today:
Intensify your persistence in prayer. The waves of persecution never let up while the
rebuilding went on, but God’s people had a stronger weapon: Nehemiah 4:6 “We prayed
to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.” Exercising common
sense, they set up a defense. They did what was necessary to complement their prayers.
If you want to counteract your home being burglarized, don’t just pray, put in an alarm
system.
Expect difficulty when you do what’s right. Great opportunity is often accompanied by
great opposition. The Apostle Paul said of the work in Ephesus, 1st Corinthians 16:9 “A
great door for effective ministry has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.”
He chose to think primarily about the great open door, not the daunting opponents. The
easiest thing to do when confronted by difficulty is to give up, and nothing pleases Satan
or the critics more than for the negative to cancel or neutralize the positive. It’s crucial to
keep going, no matter what is in the way, no matter what threatens to prevent you from
doing God’s will.
Don’t give up or give in. Nehemiah and the workers were invincible because they were
in the very center of God’s will. They would not give up or give in. Faced with deceit,
distraction and discouragement on all sides, they relied on God’s power and He gave them
the victory. God’s promise to us is no different from the one those believers carried in
their hearts. John’s first epistle 4:4 reminds us: “You, dear children, are from God and
have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the
world.”

St. Peter’s Christian Friends,

Dear friends of St. Peter’s,
Thank you for your continued support since
Berly's passing. Your kind words, cards, calls and
visits are so appreciated and we are truly blessed
to have such a wonderful church family. We just
wanted to let you know how
special each of you are to us!

Thank you for the cards, calls, especially those of
you that remembered to pray during my double
brain and spinal surgery.
I have been left with cognitive and balance issues
that have ended my life long love of St. Peter’s
church choir since I was a little girl in this church.
Please continue to pray for me to find my place
again since I have lots of difficulties (driving,
numbers, etc.). I am sure prayer will lead me and
I will feel a sign as to what I can do in the church
again.
Thanks again for your prayers,
Wanda Arnold

Thank you,
Betty Lou and family.
