Sunday Education Hour is in Recess
Thank You! From Amy Smessaert
Dear St. Peter Congregation,
The day of my consecration as a deaconess on June 4th was beyond anything I could have imagined and I would not have arrived at that day without God and without you- The Body of Christ at St. Peter.You have been with me every step of the way. From generous financial support as evidenced in the check you presented to me on June 5th and the celebratory support of my consecration service and lovely reception to the equally generous prayers, support and encouragement in ministry over the years.My heart is overflowing with love, joy and gratitude for all of you and for each of you.
With thanksgiving, your Sister in Christ

We are moving into a finalized plan to install a deck, renovate landscaping, and hopefully fix a tree-and-fence problem. Stay tuned through the summer for announcement of Fall project dates.

board meeting. They would like St Peter to join us in the following
- Thanksgiving for the completion of a wonderful school year.
- Continued prayers for wisdom and guidance as we consider the building expansion.
- That the Lord will bring us more students to serve.
