The World Beloved : A Bluegrass Mass May 22nd—9 am

Join us at St Peder’s on May 22nd for Carol Barnett’s glorious work “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass”. Bringing together the classical choral style with down home verve of bluegrass, Barnett has put together a piece that will have you toe-tapping and head-bobbing to the traditional texts of a mass: Kyrie, Credo, Sanctus, etc. Barnett writes of her work “My highest hope is that listeners coming from one tradition—classical or bluegrass—and perhaps dubious about the other, might discover something new and wonderful in the combination, as I have.” We are certain that “The World Beloved” will scintillate and delight you. So grab your friends, come to St Peder’s at 9:00 am on the 22nd of May, settle in to a pew, and enjoy this exciting fusion of musical styles.


From June 20-24th we’ll be holding our first annual Peace Camp. We really need to start getting RSVP’s for campers and counselors so if you haven’t registered your children yet, please do so. We want to make sure we have enough children and youth to make this a viable program. 

This year the theme will be Farming! We’ll look at the fruits of the spirit, talk about sustainable food, play games, make crafts and more!
This peace camp will be for children ages three up through 6th grade. The counselors and leaders will be youth in 7th-12th grade. This will be a great opportunity for youth to get service hours for school.
You can register by sending me an email with your child’s name and age/grade. If you want to share it with folks in your neighborhood/network, you can RSVP to the Facebook event and invite them!
