Laundry Love
October 29, 2019 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go to work, a job interview, or school without clean clothes? Or to have to decide between a gallon of gas or a load of clean laundry? The St. Peter’s Laundry Love mission serves to help alleviate that challenge, even in a small way, for individuals once a month at Pumpers Laundry. We share this blessing with new friends and old each month by paying for laundry and laundry supplies for anyone at Pumpers during that time.

A Today Show piece from last year showed that school attendance increased for high-risk student populations through a clean clothes program. This program focused on laundry ma-chines in the schools. While we cannot put a laundry machine in every school, we can do our part once a month. Feel free to join us on the last Tuesday of the month from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Pumpers Laundry on Pleasantburg Ave. in Greenville. No special skills required! Just show up and we’ll give you a laundry card.

Labyrinth Walks
November 3 @ 4 p.m.

St. Come walk with us in prayer at St. Peter’s Labyrinth behind the sanctuary (weather permitting).  No experience necessary.

KANUGA PARISH WEEKEND

Save the date for next year’s Kanuga Parish weekend!  Join us for loads of fun, fellowship, and worship with your St. Peter’s family. In addition to delicious food and comfortable accommodations the weekend includes an adult formation program, special programs for children and youth, guided hikes, farm tours and a bonfire with s’mores, as well as lots of time for just hanging out.  You can also enjoy fellowship time on Friday in the Fireplace Lounge, during cabin socials on Saturday afternoon and at the Talent Show on Saturday night.  You don’t want to miss this!

Registration will be handled solely by Kanuga this year and take place about 60 days out from the weekend (so around the end of January) and will be on a first come/first served basis with the full payment due at the time you register.  We still need you to preregister with us so that we can provide you with Kanuga’s registration link when it opens up. Email Kim Buchanan with your email address and the names of those attending in your party as you want them to appear on our famous name tags.  We will not be collecting deposits.

Labyrinth Ministry
First Sundays at 4 pm from November through June
“You gave me a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.” Ps 18:36

Walking Prayer
Behind the altar of St. Peter’s church, we are blessed to have a labyrinth, a spiritual path. It is set in a sacred space. Walking to its center, the pilgrim or prayer walker, lets go of all thoughts and concerns. The center is a place to tell God- “Here I am Lord,” use me for your service. Walking back out the same path that one entered, one meditates on what service they can bring to the world.
A simple prayer.

Weather permitting, join us every first Sunday at 4 pm from October through June for a community walk or simply walk and pray any time the Spirit moves you or the world troubles you.

Iter Vitae (Life’s Journey) St. Peter’s Labyrinth Ministry

Are You Called to Become A Daughter of the King?
We are a group of Christian women striving to fulfill the promises of our Baptismal Covenant through the adoption of a Rule of Life:

• To continue in the Apostles’ teaching & fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers.
• To persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.
• To proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
• To seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.
• To strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.

At Confirmation we promise to pray, work, and give for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom. Through membership in our Order women are:

• Strengthened through prayer.
• Helped to learn through study.
• Provided community with other Daughters.

We are a group of women living a Rule of Prayer and Service to our neighbors. We are women to whom parishioners can look for love and for help in time of need or loneliness. We seek to walk with God as our guide and try to draw those with whom we come in contact into the church. We are women who work to spread Christ’s Kingdom here on earth. We can never forget that prayer is the foundation from which our service grows.

“Prayer without work is empty words, Service without prayer is labor lost.”

We find The Order of the Daughters of the King to be a safe place in a busy world where we can be together and support each other in Christ’s love.
