Congratulations to Peter, Christine and the entire Svenson family on the birth of Arthur Daniel on August 8th!  Born 7 lbs. 5 oz. and 20 inches long, we’re so pleased to welcome our newest member of St. Peter’s!

Remember, the Back-Lot Bash is coming next weekend, so our worship service will be held at Lorel Park next Sunday, three blocks north and one long block west of here.  We are having a picnic lunch together afterwards, asking those whose last names begin with letters A-L to bring a salad or dish to share, and M-Z to bring a dessert (or chips).  Please try to bring your own paper goods and beverages.  And lawn chairs for comfort during the service!

According to the schedule, next Sunday’s lector is Andre Gloeckner.  There is no nursery since we’ll be at Lorel Park. 

Pastor’s “coffee with the Pastor”drop-in Wednesdays resume this week (10 AM – Noon). 

Sunday School resumes in three weeks!  The first day is Sunday, September 10th, and we start at 9 AM.
