MUSIC AT ST. PETER’S will present Bradley Burgess, organist, in concert TODAY at 4:00 pm. Bradley currently serves as organist and director of music at St. Mark’s Church in Islip, and appeared on the concert last season in a solo piano recital. He will be entering the Master of Sacred Music program at the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music in the fall. Be sure to join us today at 4 pm to hear this brilliant young musician play his first full-length organ recital! (See page 8 for details.)
FROM THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE: Our next series of witness talks will begin today during the 10:15 AM Eucharist. The theme will be: "THE MOMENT I FELT CLOSEST TO CHRIST" If you have a moment that you would like to share within your faith community here at St Peter's, please consider the opportunity to give a witness. The talk can focus on a moment of piety, a time when you attempted to put Christ's teachings into action, or a moment when you saw Christ at work in the world. The only requirement of the talk is that it be about your experience, that it is your experience of Christ, that it is your testimony. Anyone interested in giving a witness should speak with Roger Burmeister after the 10:15 Sunday Eucharist.
The Farm at St. Peter’s is gearing up for a new season. If you would like to join, please pick up a membership form in the narthex, or go to their website and download the pdf form: www.stpetersfarm.com
