Hannah’s House Life Grant: $1000 more needed by Oct 6!

Good News: we received $2500 for our Hannah’s House project! BUT:

  • We will be doing the project in the Spring.
  • They could not fund 1:1, so (after more donations) we still need $1000 by Oct 6 to accept the grant. Write checks to St. Peter, memo Hannah’s House.

Be a Crucifer…or Usher!

We invite anyone interested and able to carry the Cross in the opening hymn of worship. Sign-up on the Sunday Servants sheet in the Narthex and watch this video to prepare.

We also continue to invite families, ministry teams, or friend groups to sign up on the same Sunday Servants sheet for a day of Ushering this Fall. A veteran usher will be there to assist you. You can also see the specific list duties, with video demos, here.
