MOMS OF YOUNG CHILDREN BIBLE STUDY

This group Bible study is meeting again starting tonight at 6:30 PM.  It is oriented toward mothers with younger children in their lives. We gather in person at the church every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. Social distancing and masks are required. For information and to get on the email contact list, please contact Pastor Sarah Teichmann at sarah.teichmann@stpeterslutheran.org.

CHURCH BUILDING ACCESS

With the easing of the governor’s restrictions for gathering in public buildings, we are returning to our pre-Advent practice of building access.  You do not need to call ahead for appointments to come into the church building.  Come to the main entrance, alert the office, and after being buzzed in, stop at the office window to sign in and get a name tag.

2020 YEAR END STATEMENTS

Our Financial Secretaries are currently preparing year-end statements.  They want you to be aware that year end gifts that are made digitally often have a bank delay in processing your gift.  With credit cards it is usually only a day or two … but bank to bank transfers can take up to a week to process.  If you made a year-end gift that was close to New Year’s Eve, and do not see it on your statement, it may have been transferred by your bank early in 2021. 

God’s Peace, Your Church Staff

Rev. Craig Ross

The vibrancy of life here at St. Peter’s makes my service on our staff a joy and privilege. Visitation, teaching and preaching are the ministries that feed my pastoral identity, as together our staff and lay members share in our missional calling … Building a community of faith by God’s grace.
