LEARNING

ADULT SUMMER SUNDAY MORNING FORMATION is a study of The Benedict Option by Rod Dreher, described as the “most important religious book of the decade”. We will use this book as a guide to ask the question, whether we agree with Dreher 100% or not, “What will God have us to do as a community?” You can order a copy of the book through the Amazon link on our website (see above). Sundays, 9:30am, in the Library, led by Jon Corbett.

SMALL GROUP LEADER TRAINING is designed to transform small group ministry and renew your love for Jesus by training you to lead interactive Bible studies. You'll learn a new skill while you deepen your love for Jesus and Scripture. Join us for a day of wonder and encouragement as we discover together the beauty of Jesus! August 18-19, McCray Hall, led by Maggie Snyder & Bob Loker. More details and registration at www.smallgroup-purcellville.eventbrite.com

DOING

REGISTER NOW FOR HEALING SEMINAR & HEALING SERVICE COMING TO ST. PETER’S NEXT SATURDAY, July 29, 2017.

  • Healing Seminar: 8:00am—4:30pm Cost $25, Registration required
  • Healing Service: 7:00pm, Free, Registration required

As part of St. Peter’s efforts to build Christians for service, and as a unique way to reach out to our larger community, we will be hosting Becky Dvorak, an internationally renowned prophetic Christian healer, to conduct a day-long seminar and an evening healing service on Saturday, July 29th at St. Peter’s Church. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about claiming the authority we have been given by Jesus to heal the sick and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. This is an opportunity to strengthen our healing ministry, and reach out to others in a new and powerful way. Visit www.stpetes.net to register.

  • VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Becky’s recent seminars have drawn people from across the nation; we expect there will be significant interest in attending.   We will need several volunteers from St. Peters to assist with setup, including tents and tables/chairs in the parking lot for lunch, as we may be getting up to three hundred participants. Anyone who is able to volunteer for the day, and setup, will have the seminar fee waived. Contact: Dave Hunt

THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE AND THE GUATEMALA TEAM INVITE YOU to join with us as we share pictures and stories from our Guatemala trip: Mission, Ministry, Mercy, Merriment, Misery (A little Montezuma’s Revenge!) Please bring some finger food and a favorite beverage to share.

Wednesday, August 2, 6:30pm, in McCray Hall.

CHANGE in COFFEE HOUR HOSTING FOR SUMMER: Only two individuals will be scheduled as hosts to prepare the drinks for Coffee Hour. St. Peter’s will provide the snack to be set out by the hosts. We hope this will provide hosts a break both financially & in frequency of serving.

EXPRESS YOUR GRATITUDE TO GOD by donating the flowers for the altar one Sunday. Forms are available in the entryway and on our website
