September 17 – 18, 2019
Sign-up for our next Welcome & Discovery Class if you would like to understand more about worship, faith and service in the Anglican Tradition; the Episcopal Church; and at St. Peter’s.
We will begin with dinner on Tuesday evening, and have a relaxed time of learning more about worship and sacraments, while also tracing the outlines of Christian faith as we have received it through the Bible and the Christian Tradition. Father Furman will give particular attention to the “lenses” through which Anglicans and Episcopalians see. The class resumes on Wednesday evening with coffee and fruit and cheese. There is no obligation or commitment associated with this class. You may sign-up by calling the parish office at 268-7280 or by sending an email to email@example.com.
Deadline: Sunday, Sunday, September 15
Eucharist Visitor Training
September 21 @ 9:30 a.m.
St. Peter’s is blessed to have a vibrant Eucharistic Visitor ministry, in which a trained and licensed lay person takes consecrated bread and wine from our Sunday service to share with our members who are unable to come to church. This ministry is vital to those who are ill or home-bound, allowing them to continue to participate in our corporate worship. We will be offering a Eucharistic Visitor Training at 9:30 on Saturday morning, September 21 in the Choir Room. If you plan to come, please contact the church office.
Saturday, September 21, 2019

Special Presentation for Parishioners
Sunday, September 22 at 9:30 a.m. in Stockstill Hall
The vestry and Feasibility Study Committee will be offering a presentation for our congregation during the Sunday School hour on Sunday, September 22. In response to the listening sessions with parishioners in 2018, the vestry formed a Feasibility Study Committee to help us respond in a creative and orderly fashion. This faithful committee selected, and has been working with the architectural firm of Craig, Gaulden, Davis in order to translate the most pressing needs and highest priorities you expressed during those listening sessions into a specific plan. September 22 is your first opportunity for hearing about the thorough and deliberate work of this committee during the past year. Please join us for this important presentation!
