Reformation 2017

 St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Warren
is planning 4 events in celebration of the
500 year Anniversary of the Reformation

As the synods have suggestions for all their member congregations about what to do for the theological part of this anniversary, which will be implemented by the pastor(s) at the Sunday services and with all the synod churches following these outlines including ours, St. Peter’s would like to extend these anniversary celebrations..

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Warren, MI, as the only remaining German Lutheran Church in Lower Michigan,
would like to host a few special fun events to celebrate the anniversary of 500 years of Reformation.

We are concentrating on 3 Saturday events, as not to interfere with the schedule of other churches,
who might want to join us to make these events a success.

St. Peter’s is interested to find other congregations, organizations and/or individuals,
who would like to participate in the active organization and execution of these events.

There are many shoes to fill to make these events a great and fun time.

Please consider helping us, as we would like to get the message out, what the whole Lutheran movement was and is all about.

Next meeting, see notes below.

Reenactment of Luther’s Wedding to Katherina von Bora
Saturday, September 9.

Event 2

Christmas Party

16 of us Boomers had a fun time. The spread of appetizers and desserts was delicious and there was something to please everybody’s palate. A game of Pictionary (male versus female) rounded out the evening. I believe everyone had a good time.

Bratwurst making with Steve and Rudy

Let’s get together and make our own Sausage for the Holiday Season!

Information in this post is subject to updates!

This is a fundraiser put on by the St. Peter Boomers with the proceeds going directly to St. Peter Lutheran Church.

Cost per Pound: $ 3.75 (price contingent on meat prices not increasing too much)

  • Date:            Wednesday, December 19. 2012

  • Time:           6:30 pm

  • Place:         St. Peter Church

We plan to make three types of Fresh Bratwurst:

  • Steve’s famous Fine Polish

  • Rudy’s Coarse Kielbasa

  • Saxon Bratwurst with Paprika

Sausage has to be pre-ordered at church and can be picked up after we make it that evening or the next time you come to church. (Sausage will be put into the freezer at church unless you tell us otherwise!).

We can not guarantee the weight to be right on to the ordered amount and the package price is by weight, so the packages will be marked with your name and the cost. Make checks payable to “St. Peter Church”.

Anyone who wants to come and help is welcome!

This is a social event. (B.Y.O.Beer and Apron)

We will make the sausage without any fillers,
we know that the fat content is way below the Wurst you buy in the store
and the price is not just reasonable but cheap for the quality you get!

Sauerkraut and Bread optional and not included!

Safe Handling: This is a fresh/uncooked Sausage and should be cooked before consumption!

Beer Tasting or Pudding Shots Sampling

This is for all of you, whether you like beer or not!

  • Date:            Friday November 2, 2012

  • Time:           6:30 pm

We ask you to drink responsibly and to assign a designated driver!!!


Beer Tasting:

Selection, information and visual presentation of the beers will be done by Rudy.

We will taste at least 12 different beers. Start with a taste test of 6 Pilsners from different breweries from around the world. We will try to add 3 or 4 beers from a featured brewery (we will try to find a Lager, Wheat and Maerzen or Dopplebock from the same brewery to see the difference in taste of the types a particular brewery makes). We add a local Wheat beer for comparison and will also include a British and a Belgium Ale to round off the selection.

For the non beer drinkers who would like to come

Pudding Shots Sampling:

There will be an assortment of at least 10 different flavors of homemade Pudding Shots. It is time to sample and compare.
You will be asked to choose a favorite.

White bread, other basic snacks and water will be provided to keep your palate clean.

To keep the cost down, we need a RSVP from you!!
Please specify if you are participating in the Beer Tasting or the Pudding Shot Sampling when you RSVP.
Thank You!

Stargazer’s update

To all who missed a star studded night at St. Peter.

Shortly after 5 pm Bob Berta from the Warren Astronomical Society came to the church and gave us a good look, through a special telescope, of our sun. You could very clearly see two sunspots and one rather distinct prominence.

I didn’t know until then that those “solar flare ups” were called prominences.

Once the sun went down we went inside and saw a slideshow about the universe, galaxies and our solar system. Bob was joined by Dave Bailey and Lee Hartwell from the above mentioned society who “bombarded” us with so many facts and other fantastic information, that there was no way to comprehend it all. After that was a question and answer period where all questions actually received a satisfactory answer due to the combined knowledge of the three gentlemen present.

This was followed with an impressive NASA movie “Journey to the Stars” narrated by Whoopi Goldberg. (I didn’t know that Whoopi was so knowledgeable about the universe. LOL.)

The evening was concluded outside with a glimpse at the night sky and a chance to see our moon close up through a great telescope. It was a fairly clear night but the almost full moon was a little too bright and drowned out many stars.

The reaction we heard from many of the over 30 “earthlings” present was all positive and enthusiastic about the value of this experience.

Talking with Bob Berta, we decided that he will notify us early when there will be some interesting sky events in Spring 2013 and we will repeat this event.

Below are a few of Bob’s own pictures which are from the website of the Warren Astronomical Society. These, in higher resolution, and others can be explored on Flickr.

Again a big thank you to the Warren Astronomical Society for a great job!
