Potluck Luncheon for All Retired Folks
On Friday, May 15, at noon bring a dish to share – and a friend – to have lunch at St Peder’s. This gathering time is for all retired persons, and is an opportunity to share not only a meal but some good conversation on a spring day. Come and dine!

Graduates to congratulate?
If you are a graduate of any institution or program this spring (or even since last summer), or if you have a family member who is, please contact the church office by May 20 so we can congratulate them in June.  These life passages are important occasions and deserve recognition and shared joy, so don’t be shy… let us rejoice with you and your family!  (Email Sarah Zuber at or give her a call at 612/722-8000.)

We welcome back to St Peder’s on May 17 Pastor David Wangaard, former Assistant to the Bishop in the Minneapolis Area Synod.  David currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland and works for Lutheran World Relief  -  the organization for which we prepare quilts and care kits each year.  David will be in town to speak at the Minneapolis Area Synod Assembly, and offered to come and visit us again at St Peder’s! Read more about Pastor Wangaard in your May 2015 Messenger and join us for worship on May 17th!
