What’s Happening at St. Peter’s
October Fest was a rousing success! Thanks so much to Marianne and Nelson Moore for once again organizing this wonderful authentic meal and thanks so much as well to all the folks who worked so hard to make it a special event. Customers were in the door right away upon opening and we sold out quickly! Thank you, thank you.
St. Peter’s Annual Fall Clean-up – Buildings and Grounds Committee has scheduled our Fall Clean-up forNovember 21st. We will meet at Phelps Hall at 8:00 a.m. for coffee and start work at 9:00. This will include the cleanup around the church, garden, parish hall and rectory. It is a great way to get together with fellow parishioners and work on beautifying the church grounds and have a few laughs. We also provide fuel for your efforts with coffee and donuts/bagels. Please come armed with your gloves, tarps, rakes. “Many hands make light work” so the more people come, the quicker it will go.
A message from the choir loft:
CALLING ALL SINGERS!!!! The choir is looking to add some Tenors and Basses to our ranks. Sopranos and Altos are always welcome too. Any men or women that would like to sing are invited to join us Sunday mornings at the 10 am service. We meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:15 and Sunday mornings at 9:05 to rehearse. Anyone interested please speak to the organist (Josh Ziemski). Stop on by and lend us your voice!!! Don’t be shy!
St. Peter’s has a new website!
Same location, great new look. The new site offers an always up to date calendar, upcoming events listed with details, news from Sue, the bulletin, the latest happenings, an updated photo gallery, and more! All with a sharp new design that looks great on a desktop computer, tablet, or smart phone.
We also have a new email address at St. Peter’s which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put that in your contacts folder and use it to email the office. Although the old one will still function for the foreseeable future, it will eventually be phased out, so please begin using the new one and check your junk/spam folders to be sure emails from St. Peter’s don’t end up in the Trash. Thanks.
