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 (except the last Sunday of the month.) 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.  Today we thank Lorrayne and Brenda Johnson for the flowers given in memory of their husband and father. We also thank the Slaughter family for coffee fellowship and Duane Beck for the birthday cake after the service.

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES are here! You can support our congregation’s Girl Scouts by purchasing your cookies during coffee hour today.

NEWSLETTER MAILING GROUP: We’d love to have your help preparing the newsletter for mailing. Meet in the Meeting Room at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday for about an hour of folding & sealing.

ASH WEDNESDAY: We will have two Ash Wednesday services on February 26th. The first service is at 12:00 noon and Pastor Rick will share his faith story. The second service is at 7:00 p.m. and Nancy Aeling will share her faith story. Lenten Soup Suppers will begin the following week, March 4, at 6:00 p.m. followed by Holden Evening Prayer at 7:00 p.m. Each week a member of St. Peter’s will share their faith story as part of the evening worship.

HAND & FOOT CARD GAME: This Saturday, February 29th, is our next Hand and Foot Card Game evening. Be sure to sign up on the bulletin board as the game is played in groups of four. Bring an appetizer to share and a drink of your choice.

EXERCISE CLASSES AT ST. PETER’S: There are four exercise classes held weekly at St. Peter’s by the Sea and all are welcome to participate. Mondays and Fridays at 9:00 a.m., the YMCA conducts chair exercise classes at no charge (thanks to a community outreach grant.) Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m., Sherlie Miller conducts a short-form Tai Chi class and on Fridays at 12:00 noon, Lizbeth Garcia conducts a Movement & Balance class. These two classes are open to the public and a suggested donation of $10 is asked.

NURSERY ASSISTANT: Keeping in mind best practices, we need to have a second adult (age 13+) in the nursery on Sundays, assisting Anya. Please consider spending a Sunday morning with our littlest members and sign-up on the bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall.
