Prayers of the People We invite you to communicate to us your individual prayer requests which will remain on this list for one month (Yes, you can always add them again). Please email your prayer requests to Susan at: firstname.lastname@example.org OR write them in on the list as you enter Church on Sunday.
This week we ask for prayers for the following: the Lee family, Karen Osborne, Edward, Patricia Hart, David, the Phillips family, Dobie Lee and family, Bruce Campbell, Robert, Joe, Bill, Benjamin, and Tony.
And for those who have died: Dobie Lee, Richard Scalera, Raidaa Nabiha
We will be starting a meals ministry to provide tangible (and delicious) acts of love for our St. Peter’s family. This is how it will work. When someone in our community has a need (eg. new baby, family member ill, etc), they can reach out to Martha Lee at email@example.com and we will arrange some meals to be delivered to their home. These meals do not have to be home-cooked so don’t fear that you can’t participate if you’re not a chef! FreshDirect, Instacart and seamless are great options. In order for this to be successful, we need YOU! So please email Martha if you are interested in being on the meals ministry team.
