Important Emergency Information
The world watched the cardiac arrest of Damar Hamlin at the recent Bills-Bengals NFL game, showing that emergencies can occur even in people of any age. We want you to know that St. Peter has an emergency plan as well as the equipment to treat cardiac emergencies. Please take note of the locations of our AEDs which are located outside the gym door, outside the LSEM classroom near the Crossroads, and in the central coat room behind the sanctuary. There is also an AED across the street at His Rock. We have been sharing this information with our Elders and our St. Peter School faculty and students. Being prepared may save a life in any setting. The following links will help you keep up to date on emergency responses. Check them out!
Blood Pressure Screening – Second Sunday of every month
High blood pressure is often silent and can cause significant health problems when not controlled. The Parish Health Team conducts blood pressure screening monthly between the 8:00 and 9:30 a.m. worship services.
Please use the link below for more information about our care team.
Meal Care Partners Needed
Are you looking for a new way to serve your fellow members of the Body of Christ? Do you need a project that does not require a huge time commitment? Do you feel blessed to be a blessing? St. Peter has a group of dedicated people who prepare an occasional meal for a person or family going through a short-term difficult time due to illness, grief, or another stressful situation. We are currently looking to add to our list of persons willing serve in this manner. A Care Calendar is utilized to schedule these meals. You would be asked to prepare the meal and deliver it to the family on a one-time basis. If you or someone you know would benefit from receiving meals on a short term basis, please contact the church office or see below.
For more information, please contact Paula Hoegemeyer at (586)322-2319 or email@example.com .
This form is to request prayers or announcements in the bulletin and during worship services. Please understand that announcement requests are not guaranteed. We require that your announcement request be submitted a minimum of four weeks before the dates. God Bless you!
