Family VBS 2020! We are going to try something new for VBS this year. It is an evening VBS for the whole family (and even for families without kids)! The evening will start with a picnic dinner outside under the trees. The menu will be different each night. Then it will be off to the tradition VBS rotations of Opening, Bible Story, Lesson, Craft and Closing. Parents will be invited to travel the rotations with their children, leave, or participate in an adult module. It will all be done and you on your way home by 7:30! It will all happen in four days (Mon – Thurs.) July 27-30th 5;30-7:30. Block the time out on your calendar. It sounds like fun!
Breakfast and Workday. If possible, Saturday April 4th will be our next Workday here at church. Our morning will start at 7:30 with breakfast for whoever would like it. Church clean-up will start at 8:00. There are lots of things that need to be done both inside and out. Please give a few hours to help us be good stewards of the wonderful facilities God has entrusted to us.
Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the
oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the
naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
At St. Peter let us make Lent not only a time of spiritual renewal but of physical care for others.
Sunday April 5 Palm Sunday
Thursday April 9 Maundy Thursday
