Pieces of the Rock
January 8, 2021
Parents and Friends,

The Scrip program is one that has been around here at St. Peter’s for a long time. This gift card fundraising program allows us to improve or fund different things around the school after accumulating over years. A great example of these funds being used is in our new lighting which was installed in December and the painting project which will be completed in the first couple weeks over this coming summer. Both of these projects are being made possible 100% because of the earnings from the Scrip program! 

Outside of being much more environmentally friendly and brighter, the new LED lights have an expected return on investment of just under 2 years from energy savings! The new lighting and paint in the hallways and bathrooms in the educational side of the school building will be a great update to our building. 

Scrip is a great tool for our schools that benefits both our families with a rebate portion that can be used on tuition or funding a prepaid account and our schools with a rebate portion used for supporting different improvements. Keep using SCRIP! If you haven’t signed up yet, use the link below or contact Tony Hunt or the school office to help you get started or to answer questions about the program. 

In Him,

Chris Brune

The Congregational Scholarship Update
The Congregational Scholarship that has been on hold due to Covid has been reinstated. Communication, via email and a mailed letter, has been sent to students and parents of the Day School and Concordia Lutheran High School who receive this scholarship. For easy access to the Google Form referenced in the letter use the link below. In Person Worship forms are located in the Ministry Center.

An Opportunity to Offer Time & Talents
The Property Team is lining up volunteers to take a weekend to be on-call to cover sidewalk shoveling and salting around our entrances before & after weekend worship services. The main objective is to keep the walks near each door clear of snow and ice so our members can enter and exit our facility as safely as possible (the major parking lot plowing/salting is already covered).

This is a wonderful family project opportunity if you've been looking for a way to give back together. If this is something you or maybe your family is interested in, please complete the form found at the link below as soon as possible.
