Community Life at St. Peder’s…
Intergenerational Advent Festival
On November 29th we’ll have our annual Advent festival. There will be a shorter 10:30 service followed by a soup lunch and crafts for all ages. We’ll be making family Advent wreaths that you can take and use in your home.
We would still use some folks to bring soup, bread, and desserts, so if you can help out with that, please contact Shannon.
December 2 at 7:00pm at Parkway Pizza. The theme for the month is volunteering, gift giving, and philanthropy. All are welcome!
Advent Book Study
On Monday November 30, and Monday December 7 and 14 at 7pm we’ll be discussing “The First Christmas” by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. You can buy a copy from Shannon or get a copy on your own. There are audio and ebook versions available. This book is a fascinating read and will help you look at the Christmas story in a whole new way so join in!
