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 Rose Engleman for the flowers at the altar given in honor of Aaron Engleman. We also thank Charles and Elaine Lauger for the coffee fellowship after the service served in celebration of Rose Engleman’s 89th birthday.
