Services will also be held at 6:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. that day.
Members of the congregation will gather outdoors for the brief ceremony, which will include the pastors, church councilmen and members of
the various “Building on the Rock” committees breaking the ground and turning the soil to signify the beginning of construction.
Weyauwega residents and the community at large are invited to attend.
The new St. Peter School will include classrooms, a gymnasium, cafeteria and commons.
Offices for both the school and church will be situated between the school and the church narthex.
The architect for the project is Excel Engineers of Fond du Lac, and the general contractor is Catalyst Construction.

Construction will take place throughout the summer and fall.
