Welcome 

Grace, mercy and peace be to you from God our Father and from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Amen.

On March 13, 2020 Texas State Governor Abbott declared a State of Disaster in Texas due to COVID-19. On March 19, 2020 he issued four Executive Orders, the first being “In accordance with the Guidelines from the President and the CDC, every person in Texas shall avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.”

Whether our congregation agrees with the Governor's Executive Order, we are called in God’s Word to “be subject to the governing authorities” (Rom 13:1).

At a meeting of the St Peter Board of Elders and other church leadership, the hard decision was reached to suspend all public activities including Worship services, Bible Studies, and Sunday School and Midweek classes for 21 days. The situation will be re-evaluated at that time.

During this time, the Divine Service (10:30 a.m.) and Wednesday Lenten services (7 p.m.) will be live-streamed on the St Peter Lutheran Youth Facebook page and also available to stream at any time from our website under the “sermon” tab.

Many more decisions need to be worked out such as the celebration of Holy Communion and distributing CDs and DVDs for those unable to access the internet.

A letter will be sent out soon to all members of St Peter Lutheran with more details.

Video services are also available at Worship for Shut-Ins, http://worshipanew.org. These services are available online and on DIRECT TV channel 377. They are led by an LCMS pastor and have performances by local Indiana church and school choirs. 

Our midweek program will be suspended as long as the local public schools are closed and possibly continuing until we are sure that COVID-19 is under control.

If you have any questions about our schedule or other issues, please call the church office. 

Rest assured the Gospel will continue to be proclaimed. God is bigger than COVID-19 and the Word of the Lord endures forever. (1 Peter 1:25)

God’s richest blessings and peace.

Announcements 

Eyes on Jesus Lenten Theme

O come, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Gradual for Lent, based on Hebrews 12:2)

When the characters in the Passion narrative look at Jesus, what do they see? In most cases, people misunderstood who He is and what He was doing. In some cases, by faith, people recognized Him aright. Our Lenten series this year, based on the Gospel according to St. Mark, will examine how the various people around Jesus viewed Him—and how we should view Him. We will “fix our eyes” on what Jesus has done to save us from our sins by His holy, precious blood and innocent sufferings and death, and celebrate what God sees on account of His work: our justification for His sake.

Our Lenten services will be held at 7 p.m. each Wednesday through April 1st. 


Maundy Thursday Service

Eyes on Jesus

On Maundy Thursday, there is “More Than Meets the Eye” to the Lord’s Supper. We will look into the Old Testament background of the Last Supper and rejoice in the mystery that Jesus, in and with, bread and wine, gives us His body and blood in order to deliver to us the benefits of His Passion.


Good Friday

Eyes on Jesus

On Good Friday, we look through “God’s Eyes” to see what is happening during the Passion: the once-for-all atonement for the sin of the whole world and the justification of all sinners on Easter.


Easter Sunday Celebration!

Eyes on Jesus

Easter Sunday gazes upon “Angel Eyes.” The angel in the tomb knows the whole story of Jesus’ resurrection. When he sees the women, he proclaims the Gospel to them, shows them where Jesus’ body had formerly lain, and tells them that they can see Jesus themselves in Galilee. Likewise, the “angels” or messengers of the Church in the apostolic ministry tell God’s people where they can find Jesus and His salvation in the Means of Grace.
