$6,200! That’s the amount the grocery card ministry was able to contribute to the St. Peter’s debt reduction for 2019! All thanks to our faithful shoppers who purchased cards last year. Every Sunday we offer gift cards from local grocery stores for you to purchase at face value and spend as you wish. The church receives 5% from each card sold. Please consider participating in this ongoing ministry as an easy way to help reduce the church debt. Many thanks to the dedicated “Card Shark” team who volunteer their time each week: Linda Siems, Stephanie Palic, Donna Aho, Randy Shue, and Ginny Gerhart. Please see any one of us at the grocery card table if you have questions about this great ministry. –Pat Badorf
