St. Peter’s Players Present:  GODSPELL
Auditions to be held January 27 from 1-4 p.m.

This May, the Players invite you to PREPARE for GODSPELL.  This Steven Schwartz musical is a modern spin on the Gospel according to Matthew.  A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing.  Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

Auditions will be Sunday, January 27 from 1-4 p.m.  This IS A MUSICAL, so be prepared to sing something …. Anything you chose plus things we may choose for you.

We are looking for a cast of 10-16 people.  Due to the nature of the play and the schedule involved, this play is only open to individuals from high school to adult.

Communion Class for Families
Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 10 – 11 a.m.

On Saturday, February 2, families of children in 1st grade and older are encouraged to attend a brief Communion Class from 10 – 11 a.m.  While children are welcome to receive the wafer and wine at any age, we like to teach them the meaning and ritual of the Eucharist at this age.  Children who have already attended do not have to come again.  If you plan to attend, we ask that you let the church office know so that we can prepare enough materials for all.

Labyrinth Ministry
First Sundays at 4 pm from October through June
“You gave me a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.” Ps 18:36

Walking Prayer
Behind the altar of St. Peter’s church, we are blessed to have a labyrinth, a spiritual path. It is set in a sacred space. Walking to its center, the pilgrim or prayer walker, lets go of all thoughts and concerns. The center is a place to tell God- “Here I am Lord,” use me for your service. Walking back out the same path that one entered, one meditates on what service they can bring to the world.
A simple prayer.

Weather permitting, join us every first Sunday at 4 pm from October through June for a community walk or simply walk and pray any time the Spirit moves you or the world troubles you.

Just Faith Ministries
St. Peter’s Plans To Offer 2 Just Faith Classes This Fall
Engaging Spirituality comprises twenty-one 2½-hour sessions. Every session includes Centering Prayer, guided meditation, lectio divina (sacred reading), dialogue, and the deepening of relationships. Participants read five spiritual texts, maintain a prayer journal, reflect on the wisdom of 25 spiritual teachers, and view three inspiring DVDs. Each of the three phases of the course is marked by a retreat or immersion experience. This includes a one-day Immersion and a one-day Justice Pilgrimage to local sites.

This small group meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday mornings, beginning in September. Please email Alice Baird to express interest in this group or ask further questions. Alice Baird and Mary Mills will co-facilitate.

Just Faith is a 24-week small group experience that invites participants to reflect more deeply upon matters of justice in our community, the nation, and the world in light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This program involves reading contemporary books on a variety of topics, and also participating in local, field trip experiences to enhance our awareness of the challenges endured by those whose claim upon “liberty and justice for all” is most tenuous. The regular, small group meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday nights, beginning in September. Please email Fr. Furman to express interest in this group or ask further questions. Both groups will be limited to 12 participants. Spots are limited! Email ASAP!

Are You Called to Become A Daughter of the King?
We are a group of Christian women striving to fulfill the promises of our Baptismal Covenant through the adoption of a Rule of Life:

• To continue in the Apostles’ teaching & fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers.
• To persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.
• To proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
• To seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.
• To strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.

At Confirmation we promise to pray, work, and give for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom. Through membership in our Order women are:

• Strengthened through prayer.
• Helped to learn through study.
• Provided community with other Daughters.

We are a group of women living a Rule of Prayer and Service to our neighbors. We are women to whom parishioners can look for love and for help in time of need or loneliness. We seek to walk with God as our guide and try to draw those with whom we come in contact into the church. We are women who work to spread Christ’s Kingdom here on earth. We can never forget that prayer is the foundation from which our service grows.

“Prayer without work is empty words, Service without prayer is labor lost.”

We find The Order of the Daughters of the King to be a safe place in a busy world where we can be together and support each other in Christ’s love.
