ALTAR SERVERS NEEDED
We are in need of Altar servers in every category: Lay Eucharistic Ministers (Chalice Bearers), Lectors (Readers), Ushers, and Acolytes. Please speak with Fr. Craig or Linda if you want to join one or more of these important ministries.
ALTAR FLOWERS OR SANCTUARY LAMP
Please remember that there is a sign-up sheet (on the bulletin board across from the kitchen) to request dedicating altar flowers or the sanctuary lamp candle in memory or thanksgiving. Sign up early to get a particular Sunday of importance; maybe to remember a birthday or the anniversary of a loved one’s passing.
WORSHIPING WITH CHILDREN!
Relax! God put the wiggle in children. Here are some helpful hints – There are bags in the back of the church with books, crayons and coloring pages. Sit towards the front so your children can see the action. Bring or send your children up front for the children’s sermon. Let them see you worshiping and guide them through the service. Let them hold a hymnal or prayer book. Use the Parish Hall to let them walk (it has speakers to hear the service). Know that you and your children are always welcome in worship: wiggles and all.
SHOP AT AMAZON & SUPPORT ST. PETER’S
When you shop at Amazon, don’t forget to shop via smile.amazon.com/ch/05-6010991, which will select St. Peter’s as your charity. You pay nothing extra and St. Peter’s will get a small percentage back from each purchase that will help support the Community Market.
