Coupland Civic Organization President Susan Schmidt said, “I hope to see many of you at our meetings this year. We have a variety of programs planned and, of course, there will always be food served. See you there.”


Weekly worship service is at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday morning.

There is no dress code for our services. Please be comfortable and casual.

“We offer children’s (grades, three though eight) and adult Bible classes each Sunday at 9:15 a.m,” Pastor Scott Wasdin said. “The coffee is brewed by 9 a.m. for fellowship and conversation before the classes begin.”

The campus is wheelchair accessible and also includes a nursery with attached restroom, including a changing table for babies and infants.

St. Peter’s diners started up again in January. The signup sheet is out for those who would like to coordinate.

Coffee Connections meets every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. in the conference room. St.

Peter’s volunteers assisted with food distribution at Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry in January.

The annual congregational meeting was Jan. 21 after morning worship. Packets, which included the agenda, minutes from last year’s annual meeting, committee reports and budget report, were available.

“Mark your calendar for our next Senior Luncheon March 19, at 11:30 a.m. Bingo and 42 dominoes will be played after the meal.”

Sandra Wernli said.

“Thank you to all the helpers who make this event a success and to the LIFT group for sponsoring this community service.”

Everyone is welcome at St. Peter’s worship services Sundays at 10:15 a.m. For more information, email [email protected] or go to the website stpeterscoupland. org and click on the calendar link at the top.


New Sweden Church Secretary Susan Rountree announced the Lenten season for New Sweden Lutheran Church starts Wednesday, Feb.

14, Ash Wednesday, at 7 p.m., with Holy Communion and Imposition of the Ashes. For the next five weeks the church will have midweek Lenten services. Each Wednesday evening, there will be a meal at 6 p.m. with a worship service at 7 p.m. in the parish hall.

Rountree tells the story of New Sweden’s Church Dog.

“Over the past years, our congregation has come to feel that Kimbro, the dog of our president, Jack Atterstrom, deserved a special designation of Church Dog.

Kimbro visited church every time his master came,” Rountree said.

“You could expect to see Kimbro at game nights, workdays and very often at worship services. He was always very friendly and reverent. We were saddened when Kimbro passed away. Jack has obtained and started training another dog to fill the spot left vacant by the death of Kimbro. The new church dog’s name is Phantom, and he reminds us that all animals are, as St.

Francis wrote, ‘creatures of our God and King.’” New Sweden worship services are Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Church office hours are Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. The church telephone is 512-2810056. New Sweden is at 12809 New Sweden Church Road.

New Sweden welcomes everyone to all events.


“We are looking forward to a great year at Type Church,” Pastor Ryan Evans said. “Sunday services are at 10:30 a.m., and we have children’s church.

On Wednesday, Feb. 7, we start Bible study on the Book of Revelation.

There will be a meal provided.”

Evans notes that Feb. 11 there will be a potluck following the service.

“We would love to have you come visit our church and enjoy fellowship with us. Come be a part of our country church,” he said.

Type Church has a Facebook page where you can listen to sermons by Evans.

The church is east of Coupland at 1200 County Road 466 and Evan’s phone number is 281- 229-8962. He can also be reached at pastorryan91@ gmail.com.
