2017 Summer Students

You may have heard the term "Summer Students"  or "Summer Interns" thrown around a lot lately. Well, that's because these college students do quite a bit of ministry work here at St. Peter in the summer. 

Each summer, St. Peter acquires two students from our pastor/teacher training school, Martin Luther College (MLC). One male and one female have the opportinity to spend 12 weeks in beautiful Colorado as interns at church, fetching coffee for Pastor, making copies for the secretary, and babysitting the staff minister. Just kidding. It's so much more than that! The interns have the opportunity to get thrown into real ministry life; a taste of what it could be like when they are called workers. For instance, the pastor-track student assists with worship: preaching the liturgy on Sundays, planning worship, and eventually preaching their own sermon. The teacher-track student gets, well, teacher experince through events like Kids' Nights, VBS, Jesus Cares, and Sunday School. They work together and play a part in virtually every event here at St. Peter during the summer: everything from Bibe Information Classes (BIC) to attending Rocky Mountain Christian Camp in Leadville. 

2017 is the year of Stanley and Alyssa. Here's a little bit more about them and their favorite things!

Jesus Cares Ministry

While we’re here at St. Peter for the summer, we have the blessing of working with many different programs in the church: Kid’s Night, Liturgy and Sunday School, and the whole VBS program. But there’s one thing we do which people might not be quite so aware of: Jesus Cares Ministry. I feel blessed to be a part of this effort.

Jesus Cares is the name for our church’s efforts to preach the Gospel to people with intellectual disabilities. Every time we meet, I am amazed by how much the people who come know. One woman is completely blind, and yet she knows every song that we sing by heart. One man has only one arm, but he can draw and color better than I can. Another man can only say a few words, and yet he always lets us know how happy he is when he hears God’s Word. They are some of the warmest, happiest people I’ve ever met.

2017 Little Lambs Preschool Graduation

It’s summer and that means Little Lambs Preschool has finished another school year!  On May 26 50 students graduated from our Pre-K program.  They put on a show singing songs of what they learned and walked the stage to get their diplomas!  The main focus of the program and of the preschool is that Jesus is our Lord and Savior!  Every day was filled with learning about God’s great love for us.

This year we said goodbye to one of our Pre-K teachers, Danielle Smith. We are sad to see her go and will miss her deeply.
