two four updates for the St. Peter Lutheran community this week:
First, our sister in Christ, Helen Pierce, died last Friday. She was 101 years, 8 months YOUNG! Her funeral will be on Saturday, Sept. 26, at 2:30 pm, at Greenwood Memorial Terrace in Spokane. We will be outside, physically distanced, and masks are encouraged but not required since we’re outdoors. All are welcome to attend. Her obituary is here.
Second, I am beginning to hold regular office hours at church on Thursdays, 10 am – 12 noon. You are welcome to stop by during those hours. Please ring the bell by the south door. If you need or want a conversation at another time, please call or email the intern (see our Contact Us page) and we’ll get together – either in person or virtually! I’m looking forward to getting to know more of the St. Peter community.
Third, the Christ In Our Home daily devotional for October-November-December has arrived! Pick one up on Sunday, stop by during office hours on Thursday, or get in touch and we’ll bring it to you.
Finally, the Church honors St. Francis of Assisi on October 4, so that Sunday we will be holding a Blessing of the Animals. If you email or text me a picture of your pet, we will include them in this Blessing. Pictures are due by Thursday, October 1.
