The Ladies Aid meets the first Tuesday of each  month at the education building from 11:00 P.M. to 12:00 noon. We encourage all ladies to attend.  

We are excited to report the St Peter Quilters sent 60 Lutheran World Relief quilts this April.  Many thanks to the Makals for delivering the quilts to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Pflugerville.  In addition, Ladies’ Aid donated $100.00 to help defray the cost of worldwide shipping. Last year 534,144 quilts were shipped and according to LWR each quilt cost about $2.25 to ship.


 Also in April Ladies’ Aid provided Christian Books as prizes for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. And, thank you to everyone who participated in the Kiwanis Garage Sale held in Sun City.  With your generous donations of collectables, time and hard work Ladies’ Aid raised $477.00. Special thanks goes out to Barb G for acquiring and donating the funds necessary to reserve our spot.

Many, many thanks for serving as our organist for the past few years. Our prayers are with you as you leave us at the end of May, to concentrate on your on-going medical problems.


Stay in touch. May the Lord bless you with his peace.


St. Peter Lutheran Church

Hello Friends at St. Peter,


I wanted to thank you for the generous scholarship you all presented to me. I am in the middle of my second semester at Texas A&M University and the scholarship has been very helpful. It has helped with housing expenses, books and allowed me to focus on my studies while at school. I continue to work a the two jobs I have in Georgetown when I am at home like this past week of spring break. Thank you once again for your support.


Respectfully,

Claire L.

Easter Egg Hunt


A huge ‘Thank You’ to Charlotte B for helping the Easter Bunny by filling all the Easter Eggs. Also a thank you goes out to Phyllis and Michael B for setting up the gym and coming up with the games. They taught us a new game called NINE SQUARE N THE AIR. It was really fun. Each child went home with two bags of Easter eggs. The Ladies aid donated two prizes for the golden eggs. Thank you all who showed up to help.
