NEW! Faith Table Talks Start Wednesday, September 11th

You and your friends are invited to a NEW community-wide mid-week Faith Table Talk on Race right here at Saint Peter. This is an opportunity to come together and wrestle with some of the difficult issues we need to face in our culture and do so in a judgment-free environment where opinions are heard and respected and we are all able to grow closer in community.

Starting September 11th and continuing for seven additional Wednesdays, the group will share a meal at 6:00 p.m., move into the discussion and wrap up by 7:30 p.m., in time for participants to join the Jubilate Choir rehearsal (if need be). Dinner and childcare are provided at no cost.

The conversation will be based around the Dialogues curriculum published by Sparkhouse and will be facilitated by a guest. We are limiting the group to 30 people to ensure easy, comfortable conversation. To reserve your spot, sign up in the Narthex or signup online. Contact Jeanne Maloney with questions.


 
Saint Peter member Diane Marlowe was given a little wooden cross at just the right time. It provided solace and comfort on a day she could use it. Because of that experience, she sent in a donation and received a big batch of the wooden crosses made by the company “Cross The World” and has placed them in a basket in the Narthex. Diane encourages you to take one for yourself, and another to pass on to someone else whose day you might be able to comfort, inspire, and witness to.

Covenant Cupboard Toy Project Leader Needed

Saint Peter hosts the Covenant Cupboard Christmas gift project every year, assisted by the other churches who sponsor the Covenant Cupboard food pantry. On Friday, December 6th and Friday, December 13th, parents will come and select a gift and a stuffed stocking for each child age 12 and under so that they may give their children presents at Christmas. It’s a project that brings great joy to client families as well as those who host the distribution!

We’re looking for at least two leaders for this project, or we may be unable to host it this year. Karyl Meyer will mentor the leaders and provide many materials and contacts to help the distribution run smoothly. Please consider helping lead this wonderful Christmas gift project. Call Karyl to learn more about it.
