This Week at St. Peter’s | 4-9-23

Welcome to worship at St. Peter’s. VACANT CROSS, EMPTY TOMB, RISEN LORD. THE SURPRISE OF EASTER HAS NOT ENDED. With each day of faith we are reminded again that suffering can be redemptive, that life does not necessarily end with death, that the love of God is stronger than the sin of the world, and that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is our passage to new life even this very moment. BECAUSE HE DIED, YOU ARE ALIVE!

“Trudi’s Challenge”

During our 92nd ANNUAL MEETING OF ST. PETER’S (February 26), Trudi Wright suggested that 70 people giving an extra $143.00 in regular giving during calendar year 2023 would add about $10,000 to our Budget Income, taking care of our anticipated $7,322 deficit and creating a small surplus for 2023. Pastors Gwen and Neil liked that idea. If you would like to join in that quest, please try to designate such extra giving as “Trudi’s Challenge”. But it will blend with other general giving toward our 2023 Budget needs. Received last week: $0.00. Total since February 26: $1,106.00. Lord, let me steadily walk your path. Help me to give witness to your love through generous giving!
