Feed the 5000


In John 6:1-12, we read the story of Jesus feeding 5,000 people with five small loaves of bread and two small fish. A small boy, willing to give what little he had, played a pivotal role in this feeding miracle.

A young boy was willing to share, and thousands were fed on a hillside. It was a miracle! Through our willingness to do the same, a feeding miracle can happen here in Carteret County!

St. Peter’s is sponsoring a Food Drive to collect non-perishable food for Martha’s Mission to distribute to the needy in our community. The men of the church are challenged to collect 5,000 items of food, and the women are challenged to do the same. This food drive is a friendly competition to see which group – the men or the women – will be first to reach 5,000. When this goal is reached, the victors will be recognized in some fashion befitting their generosity.

Jesus can take what we offer to Him, even if it seems insignificant, and use it to fulfill His purpose. Can your gift of a can of soup feed all of those who are hungry in Carteret County? Jesus performed a miracle with only a few loaves and fish! We have neighbors who are hungry, and praying for a miracle. Your generosity can help make that miracle a reality.

Emmaus Gathering

The Light Keepers of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church are hosting an Emmaus Gathering at the church on Saturday, August 13, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  This event is open to everyone and we encourage anyone who enjoys fellowship and good food to attend.  You do not have to have participated in the Walk to Emmaus to be a part of this joy-filled evening.

The evening will begin with a pig pickin’ and potluck dinner in the fellowship hall.  It is a great opportunity to catch up with past friends and meet new ones as we sit together to enjoy dinner.  We will then move into the Sanctuary to sing some joyful songs and hear a short talk/testimony from one of our members on God’s presence in their life and what it means to them.  We will do more singing and our Pastor will lead us in celebrating communion together before ending the event.

Babysitting will be provided in the nursery for anyone with young children.  We encourage you to come, celebrate with us, bring a friend, and experience wonderful fellowship as we love one another just as Christ loves us.

Saturday, August 13
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
St. Peter’s UMC

The “Walk to Emmaus” is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers.  The objective of Emmaus is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work.  Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.

Summer Sermon Series

Join us during the month of July as Pastor Karl presents a sermon series on Paul’s letter to the Colossians.   As we gather to hear what the Apostle has to say about living a life worthy of the Lord, we can examine our own lives and ask, “How am I doing?  What does such a life look like?  How can I live that kind of life?  Is that life available for someone like me?”

Faith in Christ brings new life, a life in which we live differently because we have been transformed into a new creation.  It’s a life God offers to us, and then enables and enables us to live through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Join us on Sunday mornings to learn more!

July 10 – Colossians 1:1-14

July 17 – Colossians 1:15-28

July 24 – Colossians 2:6-19

July 31 – Colossians 3:1-11
