Special Events 

God’s Work Our Hands, September 8, 2019
An ELCA-wide day of serving where we let people know God’s love by meeting their physical needs! There will be a variety of ways to serve our neighbors this year! If you’re interested in being one of the station leads, please reach out to Shannon. Otherwise check out the ways to get involved below:

School Supplies
We’re going to be packing up school supplies for elementary school kids. You can donate supplies by putting them in the box outside of the church office. We need things like backpacks, folders, crayons, pencils, pencil sharpeners, and notebooks. Not sure what to buy? Check with Shannon!

Fleece Tie Blankets
Even if you have no sewing skills you can still make these blankets for the kids Camp Noah! We also need someone who would be willing to go to the fabric store and pick up fleece (St. Peder’s will reimburse you). Interested? Let Shannon know! (faithformation@stpeders.org)

Card making
We’re going to make birthday cards for Camp Noah, an ELCA camp that ministers to children who have experienced trauma. Bring your favorite card making supplies, or use the ones provided, to send a message of cheer to children who need it most.

River Clean up!
Get out into the fresh air and clean up trash along the river! Gloves, trash bags, and litter pickers will be provided (though if you have your own gloves, please bring them)!

Rally Sunday: September 18th
The 9:00 am service will feature a blessing for teachers, a blessing of backpacks, and Shannon preaching! After church we’ll have a party in the yard! There will be a bouncy house, an ice cream truck from MN Ice Cream (edible glitter!!) and something new this year…KARAOKE!! Come prepared to celebrate and kick the new year off right!
