St. Peter's Outreach Giving Generously
Given the severity of the pandemic, the Outreach Committee has had to curtail some of our work but we are still managing to be a positive presence in our community. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to give a total of $2000.00 to the Casa Grande Food Pantry and $500.00 to the Navajo Nation since March. The gift for the Navajo Nation was sent to the Diocese of Arizona. The Diocese is pooling donations and working on a water plan for the Navajo.
St. Peter's has become more active with Laundry Love. At this point, four churches are pooling funds and laundry soap to be able to provide this service twice a month. So far St. Peter's has been able to provide hygiene kits each time Laundry Love is offered. We recently received a welcome donation of washable face masks, hand sanitizer, lip balm and sunscreen from CAHRA (Community Action Housing Resource Agency) to add to the hygiene kits.
Anyone interested in assisting with this valuable ministry can donate to St. Peter's Outreach. At this time toothbrushes, toothpaste and deodorant are most in need.
Just 24 people?
The Arizona rise in COVID infections keeps us safe in our homes, but we are still looking forward to our in-person worship. We really appreciate the people who have completed our survey to determine how many plan to gather in-person when we are able. Based on the results so far, 24 people have indicated how they intend to worship in-person at St. Peter's in the future.
The Gathering Guidelines from the Diocese stipulate that we gather in numbers no more than 25% of our total occupancy. For St. Peter's worship space, this means 25 people maximum in the space that can hold 100.
If we don't hear from you, we can't plan for you to show up at our doors and may not have room. Don't be turned away! Even if you don't plan on coming in person, hearing from you will help us plan other ways to worship such as home services, outdoor services and other ways of gathering. Every survey response counts!
Please click on the survey button below and let us know your plans for online and in-person worship. Thank you in advance for your help. Note; if multiple people share the same email address, only one will be able to take the survey. In this case, please send an email to St. Peter's with the additional survey question answers.
