“WATER WORLD” IS THEME FOR JULY THIRD FRIDAY
At this Friday’s Third Friday Downtown, St. Peter’s is setting up a “misting station” in the courtyard to encourage those attending the monthly event to spend some time cooling off from the heat at St. Peter’s. Volunteers are needed to help out – be at the courtyard on St. Peter’s Street by 4:30pm to help set up. Drop by and help support the parish’s efforts to participate in Third Friday Downtown as a way to be more visible and inviting to residents; invite your friends to stop by as well.

CONVERSATION CONTINUES THIS SUNDAY ABOUT YOUTH MINISTRIES INITIATIVE PROPOSAL
The Education Committee has put forth a proposal for a new Youth Ministries Initiative that recently received funding approval from the Vestry. The proposal calls for hiring a part-time Youth Ministries Intern and making some changes to how St. Peter’s approaches Christian formation, fellowship and mission for our youth, beginning in the fall of 2015.
This Sunday, July 19, after the 10am service we will continue our conversation in the Parish Hall for parents and youth in middle and high school who didn’t get to attend last Sunday’s meeting to learn and talk about this proposal. At these meetings members of the Education Committee and Father David will be present. Please plan to attend to learn more and provide feedback.
