St. Peter Earth Keepers   (S.P.E.K.)SPEK Logo

   S.P.E.K. is a effort by St. Peter members to be faithful to God's command to care for the creation.  The guiding principle is: As Christians, our faith compels us to be stewards of God's creation.  We will, as S.P.E.K. demonstrate, educate, and advocate for the conservation, preservation, and protection of God's creation.  We seek and welcome the involvement of all of the St. Peter family as we carry out this calling.

   SPEK has purchased, (Memorial Funds) some small glass plates for use during hospitality and other events.  Please consider using them like the coffee cups to save on waste. They are located by the large glass plates.  Thanks.


S.P.E.K. (St. Peter Earthkeepers)
“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world and those who live in it.” (Psalm24:1) As Christians we acknowledge this word of Scripture that suggest God is the creator of all that is.  Scriptures, also, talk about humans being God’s caretakers on the earth.  The ELCA in 1993 adopted a social statement titled, ’Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope, and Justice’ which provides some guidance as we seek to be the caretakers. (Social Statement available at St. Peter)
So who are S.P.E.K.?  We are presently a small group of St. Peter members who have as the guiding principle to  ‘demonstrate, educate, and advocate for the conservation, preservation and protection of God’s creation’ through a variety of activities and programs at St. Peter.   We are committed to challenging each other and St. Peter as a faith community to continue to seek ways of being better earthkeepers; to better show are love for all of God’s creation.   

From our relationships at St. Peter we know that many of St. Peter members as a result of their faith, are individually or as a family involved in ‘earthkeeping ‘ in some way.   For that we are all thankful!!!
   But, we ask this question often;  ‘Are there things that we do at St. Peter in all our ministries that could be done in a different way that would reflect our commitment to our earthkeeping principle?  
   Watch for our new mascot ”SPEK”.  He is a small but mighty, committed, Christian ‘character’ who will be sharing ideas, asking questions, and speaking out on a variety of earthkeeping topics.  Keep your eyes alert for SPEK.
    If you have some idea about improving our earthkeeping at St. Peter, please just talk to one of the following St. Peter members; Linn Kracht, Sue Heeres, Susan Renee or Cheryl Tsuchiyama.

 

   St. Peter's Earth Keepers (SPEK) - look for the orange recycling bin in the Narthex and information on what can be recycled on your normal trash day through Waste Management.

Talk to a SPEK member after the service about how to get a recycling bin if you don't have one. Also free battery recycling kits are available for those who are interested.
