Welcome, Dante & Reagan Pronsati!

We are thrilled to announce that God has answered our prayers and blessed St. Peter Lutheran Church & School with our new soon-to-be Associate Pastor, Dante Pronsati!

Dante Pronsati’s hometown is Philadelphia, PA, and his wife, Reagan, is from the Houston, TX area. Both attended Concordia-Texas.

Dante is passionate about youth and children’s ministry, as well as, discipleship.

We are certainly blessed to have Dante Pronsati and his wife joining our ministry, and we can’t wait to see how God uses Dante at St. Peter!

Please keep him and his wife in your prayers!

“Sommerchor” – Summer Choir

This summer, we are introducing a new choir for people of all ages. Sommerchor (German for “Summer Choir”) will sing five times during the months of June, July, and August. Sommerchor is open to adults and students, so families are encouraged to come together! The music will have two parts at the most, always with an option to sing melody alone. If you are a regular Adult Choir, Men’s Choir or Festival Choir member, you are certainly welcome; this is also a wonderful opportunity for adults, high school and junior high students who are interested in singing in church choir but cannot commit during the school year.

The dates for singing in worship are the following weekends:

     June 15 (Saturday)
     June 30 (Sunday – 8:00 and 9:30)
     July 7 (Ordination and Installation of Dante Pronsati – 3:00 p.m.)
     July 14 (Sunday – 8:00 and 9:30)
     August 10 (Saturday)

Rehearsals will be at 7:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary on the following Saturdays: June 8, June 29, July 13, August 3. These rehearsals will not run past 8:00 p.m. There will be one Thursday rehearsal on June 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Recordings of the music will always be made available. Attendance at rehearsal is not strictly necessary, as we will also run through music before the worship services we sing for.

If you have any questions, please contact Charlie Russell at crussell@splcs.net or in the office at 586-781-3434.
