Loving God; Loving Neighbor Stewardship Drive
You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your mind,
and with all your strength…
[and] you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
[St. Mark 12:30–31]
The Stewardship Team and the Congregation Council are excited to roll out this year’s Stewardship Appeal. Under the theme “Loving God; Loving Neighbor,” we will imagine how our love for God and our love for neighbor can grow in 2019. We encourage every supporter of Saint Peter to pray daily for this appeal. Our hope is to make 2019 one of the strongest years ever for Saint Peter!
Faith Forum: Christian Elevator Speech
Please come join the conversation again this Sunday morning between 9:40 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. in the Narthex! We will work together to explore how you might respond to hard questions about your faith. This will be a useful exercise in thinking through what we value most about our faith and how we can talk about it in a compelling yet gentle and respectful way. Church Chicks will provide snacks. See you there!

#ELCAVotes: Together, Let’s Say Something
While Martin Luther did not live in a time when the public could vote, we can assume he did understand the value of speaking up for what you believe is right. Perhaps that is why we have noticed a few important initiatives popping up in anticipation of voting day on November 6th here in Colorado. Click here for details.

Church Chicks are continuing the 9:00 a.m. Coffee-at-Panera gatherings. Ladies, mark your calendars for the following dates and plan to meet your fellow chicks to talk, share, pray for each other and relax. All these dates are Saturday mornings: November 10, February 9, March 9 and April 13.
The Refresh Has Begun!
