St Peters by the Sea Wedding Flowers

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 nursery is available for toddlers and young children. Children’s Church School for grades Pre-K to 5th grade meets during the worship 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.

ALTAR CARE is given for the praise and glory of God.  Today we thank Darlene Truver for the flowers at the altar given in honor of her son, Brandt. We also thank Barbara & Richard Nielsen and Carmell Fadden, along with the confirmation families, for the coffee fellowship after the service.

CONGRATS, CONFIRMANDS! Our Confirmation candidates, Samantha O’Brien, Maya Slaughter, Ian Smart, and Hannah Zimmermann have been studying with Pastor Marohn for two years and have made a public profession of their faith. Today they will each affirm their baptism, making a mature and public reaffirmation of their faith.
