Weekend Recap: Christmas Edition

Happy Tuesday everyone! We hope that you all had a blessed and joyous Christmas – we sure did at St. Peter’s! It was another exciting few days at St. Peter’s this weekend but before we get to the recap a quick word of thanks…To everyone who made this Christmas weekend so beautiful, Spirit filled, and joyful – THANK YOU! To our choir members, the brass choir, our soloists, and all who raised their voices and musical instruments in song and praise for the birth of our Lord – THANK YOU! To our Altar Guild, our ushers, our acolytes and crucifers, our lectors, our communion assistants, our office volunteers, our church decorators, and all those who gave of their time, energy, and talents to help us get ready and share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ in worship – THANK YOU! And to everyone who was able to join us and all those weren’t able, all those who know the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ and share it with others in this season and in all seasons – THANK YOU!

Now, in case you missed something this weekend or last week, here’s a quick recap…

  • If you were unable to attend the 7pm or 10pm services on Christmas Eve don’t worry – we have some videos up on YouTube! You can hear the congregation singing Silent Night right here, and listen to our beautiful choir anthems here and here.
  • If you were unable to attend the Family Service at 5pm on Christmas Eve Pastor Suloff dressed himself up as a Christmas Tree to talk about all the different stuff going on at Christmas and, while it’s important, what matters most is the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and how when the decorations come down God remains with us. We don’t have any video of this spectacle but we do have a few pictures…
