About worship this Sunday 5/3:
Today is sometimes called “Good Shepherd Sunday.” Jesus is called the “gate” of the sheep in today’s gospel. The risen Christ opens the way to abundant life. He anoints our heads with oil and guides us beside the still waters of our baptism. Each Sunday he spreads a feast before us amid the world’s violence and war. We go forth to be signs of the resurrection and extend God’s tender care to all creation. (sundaysandseasons)
The annual "Feed the Need" food drive put on by the Northfield Area Fire & Rescue department is being held directly at the Community Action Center. They are encouraging people to use the drive up service at the CAC this Sunday 9-11am to donate food items. See their website for high demand items. Drop off your donations after our worship service and maybe you can wave to other St. Peter's friends from your car!
Thank you for your overwhelming and continued support for St. Peter's and staff! Your words are encouraging. Pastor David is keeping office hours the mornings of Tues-Friday during the week if you need to stop by or call. The rest of the staff are primarily working from home, but are checking messages.
Thank you and blessings to you and yours!
