Bring your coffee and pray – for Pastor Clark, St. Peter, and the Church
Gather with Deaconess Amy Smessaert at 10am on Sundays for a brief time of prayer for Pastor Clark and the Church as we move forward in conversations about race, economics, and gender. We will pray for 6-8 minutes prior to worship. Meet in the south end of the sanctuary, by the stairwell. Copies of the prayer will be provided.
Free Soft Shirts to Good Homes
Extra Thrivent t-shirts, sizes S and M, are available in the Narthex. Take and enjoy!
Ministry Updates and Opportunities
Adult Bible Studies and Small Groups!
SUNDAY MORNING: Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah
Na-who? Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah are three of the so-called “minor prophets” – the shorter prophetic books in the Old Testament. But as we’ll see, these under-studied books pack a major punch! Come, learn, and discuss!
When: Sundays, 9am | Where: Church Fellowship Hall
TUESDAY EVENING (once monthly) – Taking Off the Mask
This CONFIDENTIAL group gathers to process some of the harder things in life with God and each other. A meal is also shared and childcare provided as needed. If you wish to join us, please contact either Deaconess Amy Smessaert (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Pastor Clark (email@example.com).
Pick Your Next Usher Date!
Thanks to everyone who has served as an usher or part of an usher team. It’s time to pick another date to serve! Please sign up on the Sunday Servants sheet on the slat wall. You can see the specific list of duties, with video demos, here. A veteran usher will assist you and teach you one extra duty beyond communion each time you serve.
Crucifer: Pick a Date to Carry the Cross!
Anyone interested and able is invited to carry the Cross for the processional at the beginning of worship. Sign up on the Sunday Servants sheet in the Narthex and watch this video to prepare.
