“From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” – 2 Timothy 3:15

UPG Wednesday Morning Fellowship
Each Wednesday morning at 6:30AM several people gather on our St. Peter’s campus to learn more about various issues of faith, enjoy some early morning fellowship and spend time together and with our Lord. This fellowship ministry is complete by 7:30AM so that participants can make it to work on time.
Sunday School to introduce each congregation, it’s history, traditions, building and community to the UPG community (including St. John’s Windish)
All children and adults are encouraged to take part in the special Sunday School programs planned for the rest of the calendar year. As you plan for your Sunday mornings during Oct., Nov. and Dec., please prepare to stay and extra 1¼ hours after the 8 o’clock worship or come 1¼ hours before the 10:30 worship. The Sunday School hour will be devoted to getting to know our transition partners as we discern God’s plans for our future life as the people of God in this place. The location will be the same place as worship for each month.
The UPG offers a two year Confirmation Education Program for young people entering the 8th grade. This class meets 3 times a year for four consecutive weeks on Sunday Evenings from 6-7PM on our Light of Christ Campus. Young people enrolled in this class will learn more about Luther’s Small Catechism and various topics to help them understand their faith.
Weekday Bible Study
Starting February 10, 2022, a special nine-week Bible study will be presented for our churches and the public at large. It is open to anyone who wishes to attend. What makes this Bible study special can be seen from the title, “The Entire Bible for Everybody, from Atheists to Christian Believers!” The course will start from the assumption that the Bible is about answering life’s most important question, namely, “What is the Meaning of Life?” Besides offering the Bible’s answer to life’s meaning, the course will also offer the competing answers given by modern science and the secular world. Then it will be up to us to compare and contrast those answers. Classes will be held at both 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm, using PowerPoint slides, maps, timelines, and other supplementary materials. They will meet at St. Peter's Trauger Room. Each class will be 90 minutes in length. The same material will be presented at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
