We welcome you to St Peter’s.  Our hope is that you will find God’s love present with you in this place and that you will return here often to worship.  Our communion bread is gluten free.  And thanks be to God that BJ Anderson is back from Texas and once again baking our bread!


Thanks be to God for the work of Johnny and Cookie Davis, Helmut Linne von Berg, Jim Anderson, Boyd Wisdom, Mike Newman, David Beck, Ken Pogue, Fred Pannell and Ron Stone for all the work they have done to make our church yard beautiful for this season of Easter. 


We thank Brad Volland, Helmut Linne Von Berg, Nancy Long, Marilyn Newman, Mary Lawrence Hicks and the choir for sharing their musical talents with us during Holy Week and for today’s Easter service. 

Happy Birthday  Lamar Key (April 21), Zeke Fisher (April 23)

Horne’s is once again donating a percentage of the money we spend there on food to St Peter’s for the Discretionary Fund.  Please pick up coupons from Boyd to present to the cashier when you eat at Horne’s. 

Schedule Change!  No coffee hour on Sunday, May 4.  Instead, we will be having a luncheon on Sunday, May 18th.  Sally O’Brien from the Episcopal Church Building Fund will be with us on that day to help us consider possible future directions as a parish.  Please plan to come to church that day to hear Sally speak and to share your ideas.

“Resurrection Women at the Tomb”- Fra Angelico (1440-42)


After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow… But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said.’" – Matthew 28:1-6
