Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study
A note about in person worship. The longing to be in God’s house to worship and hear his Word is strong in the Christian. We know this is where we belong and where we need to be. While it is good to have available virtual/online worship, it is only a concession in times of dire need. If you are in a high-risk category for this virus we want you to be careful and take advantage of our online services. Otherwise, we encourage you to be in the Lord house. As we do so let us all, in love for one another, take the appropriate precautions to mask, hand sanitize, and social distance.
This service is live streamed on You Tube at 8:00 on Sunday mornings. It is available from that time forward at the following link: https://youtu.be/-_Xn2SJW1zE

Sunday School and Adult Bible Class meet at 9:15!
The Adult Study concludes its discussion on the life of Joseph this week! One of the main figures in the story of the nativity is Joseph. He is quite important. But what do we know about him? God’s work through Joseph will be the focus of a four-week study in our Sunday morning adult class. This week deals with Joseph’s frantic search for the lost 12-year-old Jesus, as well as the legacy he left his family. Join us at 9:15 in the Fellowship Hall.
Midweek worship. St. Peter offers a midweek worship via Zoom on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm. A link to join the service along with a bulletin is sent out weekly in an email. If you are not getting this weekly email and would like to join the service, please email the church office or Pastor and we will send you the link.
