Weekly Update for June 2

Sarah Teichmann

Hi Folks.  Here are some news items for the coming week including details about summer worship and our Mission Campaign.

THREE SUNDAY WORSHIP OPTIONS BEGIN THIS WEEKEND

Lots of news here as we begin our summer worship schedule.  Please carefully read through the next three items.

IN-PERSON SANCTUARY WORSHIP – 8:00 AM

Our first public worship gathering in our sanctuary is this Sunday, June 6th at the 8:00 a.m. hour.  The service will still observe “safe practice” protocol by:  requiring masks, asking families to social distance by households, and signing in for worship for contact tracing purposes.  The service will run about thirty minutes, with liturgy, lessons, sermon, prayers, organ music and communion using our fellowship cups.  Watch for some coming safe options for brief singing, in the coming weeks.  Click the button below to reserve a spot for worship.  You may also call the Church Office to reserve a spot.  We will be able to safely gather up to 130 people for the service as we start this worship offering.

LIVESTREAM WORSHIP – 9:45 AM

This Sunday, Live-stream worship moves to an earlier 9:45 a.m. time slot at  https://www.stpeterslutheran.org/live.   We begin our journey into the Season of Pentecost with the interesting teaching of Jesus about Christian community and how we are connected to each other.  We hope you will join us as we continue to celebrate the ministry of Jesus and his teachings for us all.

NEW DAY OUTSIDE WORSHIP – 11:00 AM

Also this Sunday, you are welcome to gather at 11:00 a.m. outside in the grassy area on the SW corner of our property for an outdoor New Day Praise service.  We are grateful to all our New Day worshippers for their patience as we have prepared for a safe venue for this segment of our Sunday worshipping community.  Bring a lawn chair or a blanket to sit on.  And be ready to sing, since we are outside!

MISSION CAMPAIGN START UP

We extend out thanks to all of you that have return pledge commitments for our Mission Campaign.  It is not too late to join your fellow members who have already pledged over $900,000  to our three-year campaign.  Help us move through our $1.25 million-dollar goal and reach our stretch goal of $1.5 million dollars. 

If you cannot locate your campaign packet mailed to your home in the past two weeks, feel free to download material from our
Mission Campaign webpage or call the office and we can send you another one.  Thank you all for your support.

WEEKLY UPDATE TAKES A SUMMER BREAK

We are thankful that you’ve read this far to see that our Wednesday Weekly Update is taking a summer break. Keep informed about church ministries, evolving worship opportunities, and summer events through the Herald newsletter, blog posts, our Facebook page, and announcements heard in church!

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.
