Hi Folks. Here are some news items for the coming week.
MID-WEEK LENTEN SERVICES
Mid-week outdoor, in-person Lenten services begin tonight (February 24) at 7:00 p.m. We will gather under and around the church portico at the main entrance to the church building. Services will be brief with a short liturgy, the offering of communion and a brief reflection on the theme of the day. We hope you will consider joining us for these safe expressions of communal worship.
NEW MEMBER CLASS
It is not too late to be part of our Spring New Member Class. We will gather via Zoom to do some introduction and orientation to St. Peter’s community of faith, and give you a chance to meet some others who are making the same journey into membership as you. If you are already connected in some ways to St. Peter’s, take this opportunity to become more fully connected. Please contact Pr. Sarah with questions or interest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ENVELOPE PICK UP
If you are a church member that uses offering envelopes and you have yet to pick up your 2021 box of envelopes, please call the office to make an appointment to stop by and get them. Many of you are sending checks in by mail, which we greatly appreciate. If you would be willing to pick up your envelopes and mail your contributions in these envelopes, it makes the money counting process smoother on this end for our Money Counting Team. If you have switched to an online giving program like Tithe.ly or Simply Giving as your primary was to contribute, and no longer need offering envelopes, please call the Church Office (717-569-9211) and leave a message for our money counters. We continue to be deeply grateful for your faithful financial support of St. Peter’s in these unusual times.
