FESTIVAL SONG SERVICE & FISH FRY!
A special "Festival Song Service" is planned for the weekend of June 25-26, 2016. St. Peter's Evangelism Committee is encouraging these services as special outreach events for the congregation. The Saturday service will be held at the usual time of 4:00 pm. On Sunday, June 26, only one service will be held - at 9:30 am. After the 9:30 service on Sunday, the Deacons will be hosting their annual fish fry. It will get started around 11:00 am. The "Festival Song Service" will include the celebration of the Lords' Supper. A free-will offering will be taken at the fish fry. Gifts given will be designated for the "Student Assistance Fund". The "Festival Song Service" will include the reading of Scripture lessons along with the singing of many of our favorite hymns. Plan now to come and bring a friend with you as we treasure the heritage of many of our hymns and then also enjoy the food prepared by our Deacons.
SUMMER SERMON SERIES
We are planning a summer sermon series entitled "Walking With God". We will examine the lives of a number of Old Testament saints to learn how they walked with God and learn from them how we might strengthen our own walk with the Lord. Some of the Old Testament saints we will consider are: 'Enoch, the Man Who Walked with God'; 'Noah, the Man Who Prepared for the Judgment'; 'Moses, the Man of Many Mountains'; 'Ruth, the Woman of Loyalty'; and others. The summer sermon series will begin July 16-17, 2016, and will run until the second weekend in September. May the Lord use these messages to increase our love for Him and to strengthen our own walk with the Lord Jesus Christ!
Scrip is available during office hours, and also the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month from 9:00 until 9:30 am.
A reminder that we have a ‘Children’s Sermon’ the first Sunday of each month. We ask all pre-school to grade 3 age children to come to the front of the church during the 2nd verse of the pre-sermon hymn; after the devotion the congregation will continue singing the rest of the pre-sermon hymn while the children make their way back to the pews. Parents are welcome to accompany their little ones if they wish.
MID-WEEK SUMMER BIBLE STUDY
We recently started a 6-week mid-week summer Bible study. We are meeting each Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm in the Commons. We are reading three of the shortest books in the New Testament - 1st, 2nd and 3rd John. Don't let the shortness of the books fool you. Their content is filled with majestic theological truths that penetrate the providence of God, God's loving rescue plan, and God's high expectations for believers' lives today. These three letters are not the 'rambling of an old man' but the inspired message of a shepherd of Christ's people who spent a lifetime serving Christ. We invite you to come and 'be refreshed' and 'be strengthened' as we read and discuss this special portion of the Bible.
COFFEE FELLOWSHIP HOUR
On Sunday, June 19, we will have “Coffee Hour” in between services in the Narthex. We will use this opportunity to welcome our new members We look forward to this special time for fellowship and for the opportunity to welcome our new members to St. Peter congregation.
