Everyone is encouraged to make a traveling St. Peter - children, parents, grandparents, retirees, 20-somethings - we are the church together! Extra copies are available on the counter under the Service bulletin board. We can't wait to see all the ways we take the church into the world this summer!

  • As we celebrated the resurrection on Sunday, during Children's Sermon, Pastor Mark passed our bells and taught them to ring them every time the word, Alleluia was spoken. In the video, Pastor Mark proclaims, "He is Risen!" and the congregation responds with "He is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!" What joy to hear the bells ring as the children respond.
