    Last summer in the midst of COVID-19 and quarantines, the St. Peter’s Garden Tour was born.  Each Monday evening this summer we will again have a St. Peter’s member open their garden/yard for others to tour, admire, chat, and visit.  Please consider opening up your garden for the tour—no matter how big or small, there’s always something beautiful and amazing in God’s creation. Sign up here to host a garden tour:  “Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it.  Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord” (Psalm 96:11-12). Contact Joy Hosler with any questions at
