In his office in the basement of French River Lutheran Church, Mark Peters keeps three different pairs of hiking boots tucked away for one of his many hikes into the woods. Peters started serving as the pastor at FRLC in September and has tried to take advantage of all the North Shore has to offer. A typical day for Peters involves getting his kids ready and off to school, hitting some cross-country ski trails, and visiting congregation members who are ill or in the hospital. He tends to take his dogs on three walks or so a day down to Lake Superior or up the French River.
