TO ALL VISITORS ATTENDING WORSHIP THIS MORNING:  We are thankful that you are worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus with us.  Part of worshiping our Lord is bringing our financial gifts in the form of offerings to support the ministry of Christ’s church.  As our guest today, please do not feel obligated to give an offering.  We are just thankful that you are here and hope you will continue to worship with us. Want to give your offerings online? Go to or text “copperluth” to 77977 from your smartphone to get started.

 HOLY COMMUNION is being celebrated at the late service this morning.  All those receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion must believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior from sin; must believe that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in the bread and wine; and also must rededicate their lives to the Lord’s service.  Please utilize the Fellowship Pad in each pew to register for Communion.  May God strengthen and preserve all who, in faith, receive this blessed Sacrament.

Do you have a favorite Bible verse that you would be willing to share?  The Prayer trail is back up and running. There are four benches along the trail to rest and reflect. There is a little box at the start of the trail where there are verses for anyone who would like to take them.  A sign up sheet is in the narthex.  Sign up for a date. E-mail verses to Lynn Lanala @ or put them in her church mailbox.

Save the Date!  Saints Peter and Paul is celebrating its 150th anniversary and we are throwing a party!  Mark your calendars for July 23 for a combined service at 10am and a fun afternoon at Keweenaw Base Camp.
