Pete said, “We are family, and we are looking to grow our family even larger; everyone is welcome here.” Peter’s family theme and generous spirit were present in the Peace Lounge on December 18, as congregants enjoyed the December brunch, and more than 20 children received gifts from Santa, all of which were sponsored by the Outreach Ministry.
