Readings for this Sunday

EVENING WITH MAGGIE SNYDER - Sunday, April 30, 4:00PM, at the Schultz's home.  

 

Friends in Christ,

As many of you know, Maggie Snyder (a long time member of St. Peter’s) embarked on a new journey, joining the staff of seeJesus Ministry as a trainer and discipler. I am pleased to host Maggie in my home on Sunday, April 30th, to have her share her experiences with us as she is trying to gain support for her ministry.    I do hope you can join me in the support of Maggie’s endeavor.

It will be a fun and casual gathering from 4-5:30pm. Lite appetizers and beverages will be served. I guarantee it will be a light-hearted gathering with people who you know or are meeting. The purpose is to support the effort and to learn more how you can get involved.      I am happy that God has kept me in touch with Maggie to learn the potential God has given us to reach friends in our area.

Bring nothing but your heart and mind and by all means, feel free to bring your spouse, neighbor or friend. This will be a time of relaxation, fun and sharing, a time to reflect and to look forward.

Please RSVP by Friday, April 28th in order that we can accommodate all. For more information visit: www.seejesus.net
