  L.E.R.T. (Lutheran Early Response Team) The team's primary focus
  is to   help those in need who have been effected by devastating
  disasters (natural or man made).   While we have responded to many
  tree disasters  with our chainsaw crew, many of our team members
  are not chainsaw certified.  We also clean up yards so residents can
  start rebuilding.  We also help residents clean up their property by
  sorting and stacking damaged materials for disposal.  In the process
  we try to find and restore belongings and priceless records to
  residents.  Since it's inception in 2015 our team has been asked to
  help in Sycamore, IL, and several  other communities in northeast
  Illinois.  We have also assisted folks in north central Mississippi and
  South Carolina.  You do not have to be a member of Saint Peter's to
  join   our group, just have a passion for helping others during times of
  devastation.  For more information   contact Jean Warfel at

  Saint Peter's Dartball League Saint Peter's plays dartball in a league
  consisting of two regions, East and South.  We play against 7 other
  churches either at home or as a visitor to another church.  You do not
  need to be a member of Saint Peter's to join in our team.  We
  normally play or practice on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm.  If you
  would like to join us for fun and fellowship call Bob Warfel at

  attend the district outing at Magic Waters in Rockford, and in
  November they attend the district roller skating party.  Every three
  years they attend the national LCMS Youth Gathering.

  Ladies' Aid meets the first Thursday of the month September
  through May.  Activities include devotional studies, fund raising to

  serves funeral luncheons after memorial services of loved ones
  bringing comfort to people experiencing grief.  They also host an
  annual Fall Luncheon, Bazaar and Silent Auction.  The Ladies Aid is
  associated with the Lutheran Women's Missionary League.  LWML
  mission projects are supported through "mites" collected the first
  Sunday of the month.  Through LWML the ladies also assemble baby
  layette bundles which get distributed through Lutheran World Relief.

  Care Committee keeps in touch year round with the shut-ins through
  cards, fruit baskets, plants or other gifts and visits.  Our main
  community outreach program is the Burlington/Hampshire Area Food
  Pantry.  We deliver our congregational donations the third Sunday of
  the month to the pantry and take our turn packing up bags for
