From the Rector
Dear people of St Peter’s,

We had a wonderful Men’s Retreat at Galilee. The wind was howling! We have such a great group of guys. The parish is truly blessed. 

We had a wonderful Parish Picnic at Galilee following the Men’s Retreat. Did I mention the wind was howling?! 

I want to give a shout out to Pam Ertel for all her fabulous work with our children.  She’s taking some time off this summer. Here’s a portion of her message to the parish…

"Starting on June 17, Father’s Day, we will either need to cancel the child care portion of the 10:00 service OR find volunteers to watch the children while they play outside in back of the Rectory. If you can help next week, or any of the following weeks, please let me know, and I’ll share the details with you. The dates I’ll be gone are June 17, June 24, July 1, and July 8." Thank you Pam!

This Saturday 9:30-11:30am in the parish hall is the meeting with IAF Lead Organizer Paul Turner from Nevadans For the Common Good in Las Vegas. He’ll be talking with us about starting an organizing effort here in the north. It’s training in social justice advocacy, drawing people from all walks of life seeking pragmatic responses to real life problems in the community. 

According to Bishop Dan, it’s been a game changer for some of the congregations in in the south on two counts:
1. It engages them in the community. People have joined our churches because they saw us do this work.
2. It trains people in leadership and how to get things done. Those skills transfer to the rest of church life.

Hope to see you Saturday. Blessings in the warming days!

Intro to Community Organizing
Saturday, June 16 th , 9:30am-12pm in the parish hall at St Peter’s Carson City we are hosting Paul Turner, IAF Organizer of Nevadans For the Common Good in Las Vegas. Paul and several members of NCG will be telling us about their organizing efforts in the south and discussing the possibility of starting an organizing effort in the Reno Tahoe Carson area.

~ For those involved with ACTIONN in Reno, a mobilizing effort, this is straight community organizing, listening to people from all corners of the community and connecting civic-minded entities to build relationships for positive systemic change in our communities. 

~ For those involved with CIRCLES, this is akin to the effort that reaches out to community leaders to create partnerships with families in poverty, only on a larger scale.

~ For those involved with FISH or other front-line agencies, this would engage in advocacy on behalf of the indigent and those in crisis in our communities.
~ For those involved in church or synagogue or temple outreach, this is the kind of effort Deacons make on behalf of their faith communities.

Please pass this invitation along to others. It’s an exciting opportunity to build deeper relationships for positive change in Northern Nevada.

Bits & Pieces of St. Peter's History
In 1911 the church building was enlarged with the addition of a kitchen, a guild room (now the library) and a study (now the office). A corner of the Sunday school room was also enclosed to make a toilet/wash room. The addition was, for the most part, paid for by a legacy of $500 from Henry Yerington and a matching amount from Mrs. Yerington.
