WELCOME TO ST. PETER'S BY THE SEA
We are glad that you have come to worship with us today! Please sign a WELCOME card found in the pew rack, and give it to an usher or drop it in the offering plate. A nursery is available for toddlers and young children. Children’s Church School for grades Pre-K to 5th grade meets during the worship. Large-print bulletins and children’s bulletins are available from an usher. You will find hand sanitizer in the pew rack for your use during the service.
ALTAR CARE is given for the praise and glory of God. Today we thank Richard and Colleen Doering for the flowers at the altar given in memory of John and Joan Doering. We also thank Christina & Carmel Fadden and Ethan & Christy Gilsdorf for the coffee fellowship after the service.

ELCA SOCIAL STATEMENTS are teaching documents that assist members in forming judgments on social issues. They are meant to aid in communal and individual moral deliberation and moral formation. Social statements also set policy for this church and guide its advocacy and work as a public church, but not all members are expected to agree with all parts of a social statement. The church is asking for your input on a draft social statement on Women and Justice. Beginning on Sunday, July 8th (and on the 15th and 22nd) we will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the meeting room to read and respond to this paper.
CHRIST IN OUR HOME: Daily Devotion booklets are available in the Narthex or from the church office. There are large print editions available.
