BROTHERHOOD - Men's Club
Our Mission Statement
About the Brotherhood
You do not have to be elder, old or ancient to be a member of the Brotherhood. All baptized male members are automatically members of the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood has been successfully involved in many fund raising and service projects in past years and decades, including, Farm Stress/Suicide seminars, the yearly parade float, garage sales, God'sGoodness Auction, game feed and show, LUAD and researching other ways by which we can help provide financial support for the various functions of the church. Past activities have included, dart ball games, flood relief, wood cutting, valentine dinners, Brewer games, Mallard games, box lunch sales, and others.
We are in a continual state of search of youthful Brotherhood members to step forward and take active roles.
If we all do a little, no one has to do a lot. Pure love has no boundaries.
ACTIVITIES IN THE PAST
Condolences to those who have lost loved ones and healing prayers to all who hurt physically or spiritually.
May finds us all in a state of disarray and loss as our beloved Brother and friend, Pastor Don and our beloved Sister and friend Betty, leave St. Peter's. God's speed to both of them as they change the gears of their lives to new adventures and life experiences.
I recall a movie line that said, "We can't stop. It's too dangerous. We have to slow down 1st!" Such as it is for people who plan for retirement. A healthy mind and body will not survive if it stops or ceases to be of value. That's not how God created us. However, the choices transform into more of what we want and not of what is expected by others of us. But, we still continue on regardless.
Many thanks to Carolyn and Dale Meyer for hosting yet another focal point of sale for garage sale items to be dropped, displayed and sold. And a great big thankyou to all who donated items to be sold and as well, to the many who assisted in all phases of the process. If memory serves, over $1,000.00 (and counting) was collected. The proceeds have yet to be allocated, but will be divided into three parts and distributed to worthy causes. 1/3 will be added to the Brotherhood fund for future expenditures as deemed necessary or requested.
We will be discussing a possible theme for an entry into the Loganville parade as we have in the past. An idea for a theme I have had in mind is, 'Cruising For Christ'. But, the possibilities are endless.
The next meeting for the Brotherhood will be tentatively held on July 25th @ 6:00 p.m. at Church. Dale and I will be gone for two weeks in June for Oberammergau and then Mary and I leave right after for a two-week camp outing.
Summer is here and so are the opportunities, especially with pandemic worries dissipating daily. Be safe. Be well.
God's blessings, happy trails and trials.
