We received Fourth of July congratulations from Gennadiy Kopytov, deacon of our sister Church of Redemption in Krasnoturinsk,Russia. Gennadiy passed on the greetings from all their members on the occasion of our National Holiday with many sincere expressions of his feeling for the meaning of American Independence to the world. We also receive Fourth of July greetings from the members of Lyra, the Russian Christian chorus who have performed twice for us at St Peters and who will perform again on Oct 14, 2017.
Stafford County Needs YOU to Volunteer! On July 26th Stafford County will conduct a full scale exercise of its ability to cope with the aftermath of a major disaster. Our own Disaster Reception Center is a main player. Success of the exercise depends on having enough volunteers to play the role of disaster survivors needing help. As his Eagle project Patrick Griffin from our Boy Scout Troop 850 is recruiting volunteer role-players of all ages. To participate you only need to be able to get on and off a school bus and get yourself to Shirley Heim Middle School by 8 AM on the 26th. Patrick has set up this link for signups: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4caba723a1fe3-ftx17 . See Rich Dunn with questions.
