From the Corner Office

December 2014

St. Peter’s comes to the Christmas season with a full heart; it has been a glorious year of service and celebration and grace. We have accomplished so much together. Now, as the year comes to a close, we will be gathering to celebrate the incarnation, the birth of our God into this world. It is […]

Where Do I Fit In?

YOGA CLASS
Join us in the Parish Hall for a Beginning Yoga Class - no pre-registration is necessary, and drop-ins are welcome! We have a great yoga teacher, Lorraine Schulze, who focuses on traditional yoga poses and mindfulness practices. It's a great workout, and can be tailored to your individual needs. Classes run on a donation basis. The last class of 2014 will be on Tuesday, December 23rd from 9am-10am. Classes will resume after the new year, and we may add another class to Thursday or Friday morning, as well. Bring your mat and a friend! Questions? megan.goulden@gmail.com or office@st.peterschurch.org

OUTREACH
In our 150th year, the St. Peter's community continued to serve those in need in many ways. From 150 backpacks and school supplies to a newly revitalized food collection program, your time and energy has made a difference in Redwood City and beyond. We provided close to 70 new , wrapped Christmas gifts for low-income families at Taft School. Efforts to serve the homeless with Hope Bags and a warm, wonderful dinner have continually grown. The women's book sales provided us with great books to buy and a fundraiser throughout the year.

The New Year gives us each a chance to reflect on how we can continue to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world -- what types of projects light a spark in you? What can we work on together in 2015? We will have an Outreach Committee next year who will help set up projects and coordinate our resources - but we need your feedback and help to continue to make our Outreach efforts a vibrant part of St. Peter's Church. You can contact Deacon Skip, Megan Goulden, or Doug MacGowan with your thoughts. Thank you for a great year of service!

YOUTH GROUP
Under the tireless leadership of Mother Susan, the St. Peter's Youth (SPY) continued to have fun this year. On the first and third Sunday evenings of the month, the SPY kids get together and share a meal together (they are big fans of Chinese food and pizza), talk, play games, watch movies, come up with pranks, and just hang out together. Some of the kids went through confirmation classes with Mother Susan, and were confirmed last year at Grace Cathedral. Plans for the next year include a mission trip and other service projects together in the new year. Your 6th through 12th graders are welcome to join SPY.

STEWARDSHIP
We are off to a good start with our 204-2015 Stewardship program but we still need to hear from many of you about your pledging plans for the next year. Your financial committment helps us plan and the Advent season is a great time to reflect on how you would like to contribute to St. Peter's. Stewardship encompasses both your financial support and the gifts of your time and talents. Please help ensure that our programs and ministries continue to grow for another 150 years - make your pledge today!

COFFEE HOUR
An easy way to help our parish family is to sign up to provide snacks for Coffee Hour, or to sponsor the purchase of Peet's Coffee for the month. A sign up sheet is located in the Parish Hall and we will also be adding an electronic sign up sheet early next year. All it takes is a few of your favorite snacks, check that the coffee is made, and make sure that everything is set out in time. You can sign up on the paper form, or contact the office. Thanks to everyone who has supported this ministry.
