A Five Week Series – July 9-August 6
It’s summertime in Michigan! The best time of the year! Psalm 98:4 says, “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music!” This summer we will do jut that at St. Peter. Each week we will look at one of the Psalms, which are ancient songs that have been sung to God for thousands of years.
July 9 – Psalm 46 ◊ July 16 – Psalm 1 ◊ July 23 – Psalm 19 ◊ July 30 – Psalm 33 ◊ August 6 – Psalm 95
The Associate Pastor Call Committee has been formed, and is comprised of Amy Kosmatka, representing day school teaching staff, Betty Brendle representing preschool, member-at-large Bruce Coburn, Elder Brian Stipes, Elder chair Paul Schulz, Youth Ministry chair Tim Klein, congregation President Kevin Zauel, and Senior Pastor Mark Wuggazer, as ex-officio.
The transition committee has also been busy developing the Associate Pastor job description, and has solicited input from administrative staff and church board members, to help prioritize the desired functions of the next Associate Pastor. The job description, approved by the Board of Elders, has been posted here on our website for viewing, and will be used to evaluate each candidate in the call process.
Please keep the call committee and process in your prayers.

We will meet on Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the Church Ministry Wing. If you would like more information please contact Linda Dunklau.
Topic for August 1: Complicating Factors: Participants will discover: How traumatic experiences affect grief; how to deal with nightmares and flashbacks; how their thinking affects their emotions.
