August 8 E-News
  • From Daniel Weatherholt, Director of Music:
    The Hymn Society of the United States and Canada conducted a recent poll as to what is currently the public's favorite Hymn.  Many might think it would be the longtime favorite, "Amazing Grace".  However, poll results show that it is currently "Holy, Holy, Holy!"  The society is comprised of Roman Catholics, Anglicans/Episcopalians, and Protestants in the United States and Canada.  Just for fun, we are singing "Holy, Holy, Holy!" as our Opening Hymn this morning. Enjoy it, and be sure to sing heartily! Meanwhile, you can learn more about the Hymn Society by visiting their website at  
  • Volunteer opportunity for the school year! St. Peter's runs Just Lunch - a program that serves a free lunch to PHS students 3 days a week. We offer food and a warm welcome, there is no religious expectation of the students or volunteers. We need folks to help us prepare and serve simple meals and shop over the weekends (you will be reimbursed). We are looking for regular volunteers as well as folks to contact to fill in if the regulars can't make it on a given day. If you have some time to give, this is a rewarding way to strengthen our community! Please sign up if you are interested and let us know if you have any questions.
  • Calling all students! Bring your backpacks to church with you on September 1st! We'll have a blessing of the backpacks at the 9:30 service to get ready for the year ahead.
