St. Peter’s Weekly News
July 5, 2017
Baptism This Sunday: We will be celebrating Angelo Molina’s baptism this Sunday. Below is Alexis’ bio about her and her beloved son. I hope many from our parish will participate in this special occasion as we welcome not only Angelo but Alexis into our church family. Emily+
Molina Family: My name is Alexis and I have a son named Angelo. He was born at 26 weeks and has overcome every obstacle thrown his way. He’s truly my miracle baby. He is now 3 years old and has been diagnosed with autism and mild cerebral palsy. We moved to this area about a year and a half ago to be closer to our doctors and family. At times being a single mother to a special needs child can be very difficult and overwhelming but we get through it. We have the love and support of my family to help us get through the hard times. I am happy that we have decided to join St. Peter’s church and I look forward to him growing up in this church community.
Summer Fellowship: continues through September 3d. We invite you to bring a dish to share (snacks, sweets, veggies and dip, etc.) Lemonade will be provided. We will need volunteers to help with clean up after each fellowship. A sign-up sheet is posted in the kitchen. Thanks for your help! Eileen Dooley & all fellowship hosts.
Summer Schedule June 18-Sept. 3: We will continue our 10 a.m. service throughout the summer with lemonade hour after the service in the parish hall. We will have no education for children & adults and there will be no nursery care.
Summer Storytellers: is available during the 10 AM service for our children. Readers are needed for this fun activity. You are welcome to bring your own, favorite stories to share or choose from the books in the Library. Please sign up on the education bulletin board. Thanks, Shannon
Office Notes: The office is closed every Friday. Patty does not work on Fridays. Emily works from home that day and can be reached on her cell. Thank you!
Thrift Shop: Christmas in July at the shop all month long! Shop now for decorations, Christmas themed gifts & Christmas storage items.
Property Committee: I am looking for volunteers to form a Property Committee. The mission and requirements of those on the property committee is to attend biannual meetings the fall and spring; assist in guiding property decisions for better growth and maintenance of St. Peters church; and assist in securing contractors to provide quotes for work needed. You will not be asked to perform tasks, unless you expressly volunteer to do such tasks. The primary objective of the Property Committee will be to meet and help to preserve St. Peter’s property for future use. If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will include you when our meeting date has been decided. Thank You, Your Property Chair Roy Gibson.
Pledge Reminder: This is just a friendly reminder to please top off your monthly and weekly pledges before you go on vacation this summer. Our expenses continue through the summer and we depend on the cash flow from your pledges to pay our bills. If you have any questions regarding your pledge or would like to submit or adjust your pledge to St. Peter’s, please contact me at email@example.com. Happy Summer! – Bob Hartung, Accounting Warden
Music News: During the month of August, we will be singing favorite hymns of the congregation. Please submit your suggestions to Tim Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org or simply put a note in his church mailbox. Thanks for your feedback!!!
