This Sunday, August 30, St. Peter’s will hold a “Celebration of Spirit” event at the church, at 4:00 p.m., weather permitting.

This outdoor gathering is an opportunity for us to celebrate, together, God’s Spirit that has kept us going through this time of pandemic and held us together as a family of believers even though we have been apart.

While we will have some chairs available, we encourage you to bring a lawn chair from home.  The event will take place in the grassy area behind the church, adjacent to the back parking lot, and will probably last around 30-45 minutes. 

In light of the increasing number of COVID-19 infections in our community, we ask you to please observe the following guidelines in regards to this event:

  1. If you are not comfortable with being in a group setting at this time, please do not feel any obligation to attend.
  2. If you are not feeling well, have been exposed to Covid-19, or exhibited any symptoms in the last ten days, please stay home to avoid the risk of exposing someone else to what may or may not be a serious infection.  There have been several church events around the country that have unintentionally resulted in outbreaks of COVID-19, and that is the last thing we want to happen here.
  3. Please wear a mask or face covering. 
  4. Please observe proper physical distancing (a distance of 6 feet) in seating, and in greeting one another.  We know how badly we all want to hug each other, but we request that everyone avoid physical contact at this church event.
  5. Come ready to experience God’s presence that is greater than any pandemic!

We hope to see some of you this Sunday as we celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit – a spirit that has kept us going and will continue to strengthen and preserve us as a people who love the Lord, and who love one another.

And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25).
