What’s Happening at St. Peter’s

The Pumpkin Fest, Bake sale, Silent Auction, games, concert and yummy luncheon were a huge success!  The rainy Saturday did not deter buyers, bidders and lunchers and we had better weather and another great day on Sunday as well.  Thanks so much to all who gave of their time and talents (too numerous to mention) to make this a wonderful day for all.

Oktoberfest is back once again with delicious homemade German cuisine.  On Saturday October 17th from 4:30-6:30 we will be serving up one of the most popular meals in our repertory.  Please chip in money for the purchase of food or offer your services to prepare, serve or clean up.  A sign-up sheet is at the back of the church.
