Easter Sunday has come and gone. It was great to see everyone come to St. Peter’s as we celebrated the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  The church was a beautiful setting for worship, singing and fellowship.

            But as Easter fades in the background of many people’s lives, we can’t help but look to what is ahead of us. God has truly blessed us here at St. Peter’s and we are truly thankful for what He has given to us. Now it is time to think about what we can give back. And giving back brings to mind the image of a servant.

Matthew 20:26b-28  26But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,  27 and whoever would be first among you must be your slave,  28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Jesus came to earth to serve us by giving His life as a ransom. And as our “thank you” to Him for that we serve each other too. How can we do that? God has equipped each and every one of us in our own ways with gifts to serve. We call it Stewardship. Stewardship is the way we organize and take care of something.  In our case, it is the gifts that God has given to us. (Our family, friends, job, church, etc.)

There are many ways to be good stewards of what God has given to us right here at St. Peter’s. There may be some needs that require some volunteer work and maybe you can help. I would encourage you to talk to our trustees, altar guild, mission of love, and church council.

God has been so good to us here and we would love to continue to see it grow. And there is no better time than after the Good News of Easter where we heard:
