The June 2017 Announcer

Announcements for June 25, 2017 - Third Sunday after Pentecost

Good Morning!  We make gods of many things, but the psalmist declares, “There is none like you among the gods, O Lord” (Psalm 86:8, NRSV). Welcome, as we worship the one true God!

Today is the 60th anniversary of the Uniting Synod, where on this date in Cleveland, the Evangelical & Reformed Church merged with the Congregational Christian churches to create the United Church of Christ!

Thanks to everyone who served in the ministries of the church this morning.

The Church Council meets after worship today.

Office Manger Laura Olson will be on vacation starting this Friday June 30th through and including next Thursday, July 6th.  If anyone is available to fill in for her for any amount of time, please let the office know!

Brat Fry/Music Fest is July 15th from 12 to 6 PM! See insert for more details and we’ll need lots of help the day of the Fry, please contact Jenn Schneider right away if you can help! 

Brat Fry/Music Fest Poster Hangers needed!  In the Narthex and also in the Memorial Room are beautiful Brat Fry/Music Fest posters donated by the Schneiders.  Please, if you can, take some (and thumbtacks too are provided) and bring them to your local libraries, senior centers, park districts, downtown Skokie/Morton Grove, restaurants, even local doctors’ offices, etc. and ask if you can hang them—we appreciate your help!

There are no meetings scheduled this week; Pastor’s Wednesday no-appointment necessary “drop-in” hours (10 AM to Noon) continue.

Thanks to all who represented St. Peter’s UCC yesterday at the Sanctuary 5K Walk/Run for A Just Harvest, our mission partner which runs the Kitchen at which we serve on 5th Saturdays!

Thanks to everyone, especially the marvelous performers, who came to, and organized, publicized, and prepped refreshments for last Sundays’ Concert and Ice Cream Social!!  Thanks to Dan Surma who took the lead in putting this great event together at the musical end.

According to the schedule, July 2nd’s Nursery attendant is Carolyn Van Til; the Lector is to be Mark Loach.
