Hey everyone, look here! December 15th edition

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
We hope that you are all staying warm on this cold and windy day! Just a few important announcements and reminders for you as we swiftly approach Christmas.
• The annual Christmas Pageant is this Sunday, December 18th during the 10am worship service. We hope you will join us as our youngest share the Good News of the birth of Jesus Christ with us! A reminder to parents: we ask that you try and arrive at the church by 9:20am this Sunday so that we have plenty of time to get the children organized and costumed for the pageant. If you have any questions about the pageant please contact Pastor Suloff at revsuloff@gmail.com.

•As we approach the end of the year we also are working to plan for 2017 – we are exploring our options for how best to share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ with others here at St. Peter’s and part of that planning includes working on our annual church budget. If you have not returned you pledge card for 2017 please consider your giving to support the mission and ministry of St. Peter’s and mail your card to the church office or simply place it in the offering plate during an upcoming worship service. If you need a new pledge card simply contact the church office.
•The Boar’s Head Festival is coming soon! You can order tickets on the church website or by simply contacting the church office. We hope you (and your friends!) will join us for this truly wonderful proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ!
I think that covers everything at the moment but if something new comes up don’t forget to check the church website! We are now posting daily reflections, devotions, links, and announcements. You can even sign up to “subscribe” and receive email notifications of new posts or follow us on Facebook.
Stay warm and share the life, love, and joy with others!
