Parents and children should sit together. After the service, students will have the opportunity to take their school supplies to their classrooms.

SUMMER SERMON SERIES
Our summer sermon series entitled "Walking With God" will continue the weekend of August 27-28, when we consider: 'Jacob, the Man Who Forgot God's Loving Presence'.
Your pastors would like to meet with all the parents of 7th and 8th graders, those in public school instruction (PSI) and those in our Lutheran elementary school (LES) regarding catechism instruction. The meeting is set for Sunday, August 28, at 9:15 am in the church.
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.
NEW BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITY IN SEPTEMBER.
A wood-carved animal figurine. A chiseled stone statue. A golden goddess. Do you have an idol-worship area set up in your home? We would say "Definitely not! I don't bow down to idols!" But the truth is - sometimes we do worship idols and make them our gods, not even realizing they are there. Beginning Sunday, September 11, we are beginning an 8-week Bible study entitled "Idols We Never Knew We Had". This study will bring to light these idols that hide themselves so easily in our homes and in our hearts. Through God's saving and powerful Word we'll get help in order to avoid worshiping these false gods. The following topics will be covered: 1) Are we really idolaters?; 2) Success; 3) Love; 4) Sports; 5) Technology; 6) Politics; 7) Family; and 8) Religion. Each of these classes will be held in the Commons starting at 9:15 am.
WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY
The monthly Women's Bible study will begin on September 21, 2016. This study will focus on a book by Elizabeth George entitled "Experiencing God's Peace: Philippians". Please sign up on the sheet at the back of church if you're interested in purchasing the book ($8.00) and joining the Bible study discussion.
COFFEE FELLOWSHIP HOUR
On Sunday, September 18, 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.
