Winter Lego Day Camp 2018

Today we held out first Winter Lego Day Camp!  It was a chilly spin on our Summer Lego Day Camp.  Builders played games, rescued frozen Lego guys, built unique creations, and had tasty snacks.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered and participated today!  We look forward to seeing everyone for Lego Builders Club on February 10th!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve and First Sunday of Christmas at St. Peter’s!  Our youth and children worked together to perform a live nativity during the song “Away in a Manger” on Christmas Eve.  This past Sunday the celebration continued at our worship service where Fr. Rob reminded us all that Jesus is the true light for all the world.

 

As we look to the new year, we count the blessings 2017 brought not only to our church, but our community.  We give thanks for all God has done, is doing, and will do.  Check out our Facebook page for photos of all the blessings we’ve seen this past year.

The Latest Happenings

We’ve been busy at St. Peter’s the past few weeks reaching out to our community here in Canton.  Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening at St. Peter’s…..

 

Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper

On November 11th, we had the privilege to serve our local veterans at our Annual Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper.  The evening included a raffle, 50/50 Drawing, and delicious soups and chili.  All the proceeds from the 50/50 drawing were given to  the family of Sgt. Douglas Riney while all other proceeds were given to the Canton VFW to help our local veterans in need.  This year we were blessed to have a large portion of the food donated by Canton Hy-Vee and several raffle items were donated by WBYS, Black Maple, and American Grille.  Volunteers from the local Girl Scouts, St. Peter’s, and other community members helped to make the event possible.  It was a fantastic night to see our community rally together to serve those who served our country.

 

 

Lego Builders Club Rings Bells

Canton Lego Builders Club served our community by ringing bells for the Canton Salvation Army at Farm King.  It was a great way to put what we have learned at LBC into practice.  The Salvation Army did a volunteer highlight of the builders ringing which helped the kids see the importance of what they were doing.

 

St. Nicholas Day Celebration

On December 6th, we had our Annual St. Nicholas Day Celebration.  The evening included a special visit from St. Nicholas who told us stories about his work and Christmas traditions, fun St. Nicholas inspired games like a penny toss, and crafts.  The night was filled with joy as kids ran from  station to station and enjoyed delicious treats.

Lego Day Camp 2017

Last Saturday, we had the pleasure of building with 32 children at our 2nd Annual Summer Lego Day Camp!  It was a blast for not only the builders, but also the volunteers.  Builders worked together to make Lego brick volcanoes, used stamps and crayons to make Lego brick art, and created creations through games.  We look forward to welcoming everyone on Saturday, August 5th at our first meeting of the new year!  To find out more about Lego Builders Club, click here.

Fun on the Square

This weekend we partnered with the Canton Area Chamber of Commerce and Canton Main Street at their Music in the Park and Kids Fest.  On Friday night, we had a blast at Music in the Park passing out popcorn and fans to all the concert attendees.  We are looking forward to providing free popcorn and fans to attendees every Friday night for the rest of the concert series.

On Saturday morning, we had a “Hulk” of a good time at our “Hulk Smash” booth at Kids Fest.  The kids blasted through the walls so quickly, we had to enlist extra volunteers to rebuild the walls.  It was a fantastic experience and we look forward to participating again next year.  We loved having the opportunity to meet new families and make more connections within our community.

Legos at the Park

On Wednesday, we teamed up with the YMCA’s Summer Parks and Recreation Program for some Lego fun!  We built various creations including fidget spinners and played Lego games.  It was a fantastic opportunity not only to share about Lego Builders Club, but also to share the love of Christ with kids in our community.
