COMING THIS FALL:  DAILY PRAYER IN THE CHURCH
 
We have a beautiful, sacred worship space, but except for Sundays and Wednesdays the church doors are locked.

Beginning the week of September 13, St. Peter’s is planning to unlock those doors and have a public worship service every day in the church.  Sunday mornings and Wednesday noontime we will continue to have our usual services of Holy Eucharist.  But in addition we will begin to offer Morning Prayer on Mondays (9:30am), Fridays (8:30am) and Saturdays (8:30am), and Evening Prayer on Tuesdays (5:30pm) and Thursdays (5:00pm).  See the September issue of the Keynoter, due out next week, for more details.
 
CHILDREN’S CHOIR INTEREST MEETING NEXT WEEK!
A message from the Children’s Choir Director
 
Serve the Lord with gladness; and come before his presence with a song. (Psalm 100:1)
 
Dear Parish Family,
There will be a Children’s Choir Interest meeting for all who would like to be a part of this effort or would like to know more information. This will be held on September 3rd at 6:30 PM in the Children’s Choir Room on the second floor of the Parish House. I hope to see you all there. There will be light refreshments served after the meeting.
Thank You,
-Calvin O. Collins
 
“CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST” CLOTHING DRIVE CONCLUDES THIS SUNDAY
 
Just a reminder that this is the last Sunday to bring to church items purchased for the clothing drive for Wi-Middle.  They should be articles of clothing unwrapped that were listed on ornaments from the tree in the parlor.  Father David will bless all that we have to offer, and the Outreach Committee will take all that has been received and give them next week to the school. The response so far has been overwhelming.  Thank you for your generosity! 
 
LIGHT REPLACEMENT – AND LIGHTS GIVE AWAY
 
Contractors are at work this week replacing our fluorescent bulbs with energy efficient (and brighter) LED lights throughout the Parish House and the Parish Annex.  If parishioners are interested in the used fluorescent bulbs that have been replaced, they will be available to take away this Sunday at coffee hour.  You are free to take as many as you would like.  The remainder will be recycled.
 
RIDES NEEDED TO SUNDAY WORSHIP
 
Pastoral Care Committee Chair Laura McCarthy has announced that the committee is in need of volunteers to help bring a parishioner to church who is unable to drive.  Will you help?  As she has with some other parishioners who are being brought to church, Laura will set up a schedule so that you won’t have to provide a ride every week, but maybe once or twice a month.  If you are interested, please contact Laura at ljmccarthy1966@gmail.com or the Parish Office.
 
You can also join St. Peter’s Caring Team and be apprised of these kind of needs and how you can help your fellow parishioners.  There is a sign up form available this Sunday in the bulletins, or if you are interested, contact Laura McCarthy.
 
 
WHAT A WONDERFUL SUNDAY AT GREEN HILL
 
Thank you to all who helped make this past Green Hill Sunday such a success!  Great thanks to the choir, and to our director Bruce Horner, for such beautiful music.  With contributions from the other churches, there were 18 people in the choir making a joyful noise at Green Hill Church this past Sunday.  The Very Rev. Frieda Malcolm, Rector of St. Alban’s, presided; the Rev. Nathaniel Pierce of St. Philips Quantico was the preacher.  Our Rector, Father David Michaud, and Father Ron Knapp from St. Paul’s Hebron were the Assisting Priests.  There was very good attendance for this annual service at our mother church.
 
The weather was remarkably comfortable for the picnic afterwards – sunny with a warm breeze.  Many thanks to the Fellowship and Hospitality Committee and to everyone who helped organize, set up and clean up for the picnic.  St. Peter’s put forth a great effort to organize the picnic and everyone’s involvement is appreciated.
 
PASTORAL NEWS
 
Jerry Truitt is now back at home recovering from his stay in the hospital.  Karen Shield’s mother passed away last week and a Memorial Service was held in North Carolina.  Please keep Jerry and Karen and her family in your prayers.
