Stay Healthy Exercise Classes

Our Stay Healthy Exercise Class meets weekly on Fridays from 9 – 10 a.m. in the St. Peter narthex to work on our hearts, minds, and souls as we stretch, lift weights, and raise our heart rate slowly through low impact, easy to follow movements. Bring water, weights (2 to 5 pounds), and a mat, and join us each Friday morning. We will help you feel better from your head to your toes! People of all ages are welcome and can benefit. The instructor, Shannon VanSteenkiste, tailors the class to the audience. Cost remains at $3/session drop in. Enter through Door #1 or Door #29.

HAVE THE CONVERSATION: Advance Care Planning”

It is never too early and you are never too young to start thinking about making choices in a God pleasing, life respecting way. St. Peter is offering you an opportunity to learn more about healthcare options, “having the conversation” with your family members, and the process of choosing a Patient Advocate should you be unable to communicate your wishes. Give your family the priceless gift of an Advance Directive for Medical Care. There is no easy way to plan for future healthcare choices.  It is a process that involves thinking and talking about complex, sensitive, and sometimes very difficult issues.

If you do not have an Advance Directive or want to affirm what you have completed, contact Paula or Christel, Parish Nurses, to make an appointment to discuss these issues.

Meal Care Partners Needed

Are you looking for a new way to serve your fellow members of the Body of Christ? Do you need a project that does not require a huge time commitment? Do you feel blessed to be a blessing? St. Peter has a group of dedicated people who prepare an occasional meal for a person or family going through a short term difficult time due to illness, grief, or other stressful situation. We are currently looking to add to our list of persons willing serve in this manner. A Care Calendar is utilized to schedule these meals. You would be asked to prepare the meal and deliver it to the family on a one-time basis. For more information please contact Paula Hoegemeyer at (586)322-2319 or hoegemeyer@att.net.

Here are two helpful videos to help you understand how to administer CPR as well as use the AED devices that are in the building. Hopefully the need will never present itself but these will help equip you should the need arise.

St. Peter Blood Drive

St. Peter is hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive in the West Wing on Sunday, March 22 from 7:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.


The Red Cross asks that all individuals who have traveled to China, and its special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macau to postpone their blood or platelet donation until 28 days following return to U.S. 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
  • More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day.
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O.
  • Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives.
  • More than 1.6 million people were diagnosed with cancer last year. Many of them will need blood.
  • A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood.

A number of our own St. Peter members have been recipients of blood thanks to blood drives like ours.

Please prayerfully consider signing up by contacting RedCrossBlood.org or Paula Hoegemeyer at 586.322.2319 or hoegemeyer@att.net
