WELCOME TO ST. PETER'S BY THE SEA
We are glad that you have come to worship with us today! Please sign a WELCOME card found in the pew rack, and give it to an usher or drop it in the offering plate. A privacy room for those with infants is at the back of the sanctuary. A nursery is available for toddlers and young children. Children’s Church School for grades Pre-K to 5th grade meets during the service. Large-print bulletins and children’s bulletins are available from an usher. You will find hand sanitizer in the pew rack for your use during the service.
SUNDAY HOSPITALITY is given for the praise and glory of God. The altar greenery are given by Diane Bultemeier and Kathy Rahilly in memory of Pat McGregor. We also thank Diane and Kathy for the coffee fellowship after the service.
