Hi Folks.  Here are some news items for the coming week featuring worship, Easter flower memorials, ways to fellowship, and an update about the preschool!

MID-WEEK LENTEN SERVICE

Mid-week outdoor, in-person Lenten services continue tonight (March 3) 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.

LIVE STREAM WORSHIP THIS WEEK

This Sunday, March 7, we will worship in the sanctuary via Live-stream at our usual time of 10:45 a.m. at  https://www.stpeterslutheran.org/live.   We continue our Lenten journey through the Gospel lens of the story of Jesus’ cleansing of the Temple.  We hope you will join us as we take our liturgical journey of Lent to the cross of Calvary.
