Press Release: Former First Lady of Colorado Author Helen Thorpe Holds Book Signing and Leads Community Conversation on Refugees March 24th

.

Saint Peter Lutheran Church is hosting a Community Conversation with former First Lady of Colorado and author, Helen Thorpe, on March 24th. Thorpe’s latest book, The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom, follows the lives of twenty-two teenagers from around the world over the course of one school year as they land at South High School in Denver.

Why Is Advocacy Important?

.

As a church, we encourage one another to see that our engagement in politics is informed by the values we share as Christians. By letting our lawmakers know how Lutheran ministries help our world and urging them to advance legislation that reflects these commitments, we are creating opportunities to overcome poverty, promote peace and justice and protect God’s creation.

Q&A With Worship Servant Janet Okerman

.

Ever wonder who it is that makes each worship service at Saint Peter possible (in addition to Pastor Dave that is)? There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into a successful Sunday morning. Over the next few months, we will talk to volunteers on the Saint Peter Worship Servant Team, the Band and Choir and the Tech Team so that we can all get to know who leads us at worship.

Glossary of Worship Servant Terms

.

Our congregation has always understood worship to be among the most central components of our life together. We also consider it important to encourage strong participation from volunteer worship leaders at every worship service. This makes a very clear statement about how we understand worship.
