    WE'RE ACTIVE and INVOLVED!

    ONGOING OUTREACH

    Recycle Plastic Bottle Tops- Our  Youth Group,  led by Michelle are asking everyone to start saving "plastic tops"such as those off of water, pill, detergent, lotion, peanut butter and fabric softener bottles.  Also tops from margarine, cool whip, sour cream and other similar tubs.  The goal is 400 lbs of tops!  This will enable the Youth Group to order a 6' park bench that will be made from the recycled plastic. The Youth Group will also be raising $200.00 which is the only cost associated with purchasing the bench.  The bench will be placed either near the Memorial Garden or by our Labyrinth.  Both these spots are open to the public for prayer, comfort and reflection.  So start saving those tops! Recycling for Pets- We ask all to bring in your aluminum cans and put them in our new recycling bin. They will be cashed in at the local recycling facility and the funds will be donated to the Marshall County Humane Society for much needed supplies. Thank you in advance for participating in this new outreach.

    MARSHALL COUNTY CARING NEEDLINE - FOOD FUND The first Sunday of each month a special monetary collection is gathered to donate to the food pantry at the Marshall County Caring Needline.   Becky Cornwell, director of Marshall County Needline accepts our annual check  from senior warden, Warner Reynolds and parishioner Doug Moore at St. Peter's Annual Christmas Party.

     FOOD BANK SUPPORT........St. Peter's is very excited about an outreach effort that was started in 2011.  Members of St.  Peter's come from many different counties surrounding the    lakes area.  It has been our desire to spread our "helping hands"  the work of our very diligent and enthusiastic senior warden,  each quarter non-perishable items are purchased and then  delivered to Food Banks in Lyon, Livingston, Caldwell and    Trigg counties.

     JONATHAN CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL - "FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER"   and LYON COUNTY ELEMENTARY "FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER" The Bishop's Advisory Committee has set aside $500.00 per year for each school to help cover needs of the family resource center.   DISCRETIONARY FUND The third Sunday of each month another special offering is given by parishioners to put into a discretionary account.  These funds are used to assist families and individuals in need throughout the county and surrounding areas.  Needs such as utility bills, short term lodging, gas and food are often paid.

    SEASONAL and YEARLY PROJECTS

    CHRISTMAS ON THE RIVER OUTREACH                                                                      For several years parishioners have given items to donate to the "Christmas at Sea" program, co-ordinated by the Seamen's Church Institute in Paducah.  We usually gather for an afternoon of fellowship, delicious chili and to pack boxes with our donations.  These are distributed to hundreds of mariners who are unable to be home for the holidays.

    Because of our continued ministry with the Seamen's Church Institute, St. Peter's has been designated a "Mariner Friendly Church".  

    KENTUCKY SHERIFF'S BOYS and GIRLS RANCH A donation is sent to this local non-profit camp each year.  The Sheriff's Ranch provides a weeklong experience to youth from underpriveledged homes and circumstances. 

    In the past,  St. Peter's has donated both a boys and girls bike to the camp.  At the end of each week one outstanding camper is chosen to receive this special prize to take home.    Bibles have also been provided for campers to take home as well as monetary donations to help with the upkeep of the camp.           

                                                                                                                                  YOUTH SUPPORT Several youth involved with our congregation have been supported through scholarship funds to attend All Saints Episcopal Church Camp in Leitchfield Kentucky.  A wonderful summer camp experience for all.
