St. Peter's is more than its church building, bricks and mortar, steeple and doors. It is a people, a community of people. Young and old, individuals and families, newcomers and the long active, we are called together to be fed by expressions of God's Word and Sacraments, to share ministries rooted in those gifts, and sent out to be blessing to the world.
For over a century St. Peter's has been opening its doors to welcome people who have come to pray and learn, to work and play, to support and be supported by one another. God's love, as revealed in Jesus and now renewed through the Spirit, provides both focus and foundation for our shared life.
Our doors open wide enough to welcome you, your questions, you hopes, your gifts. This community invites you to encounter and claim God's love for you among us, to experience some expression of our common life, perhaps to discover a place and community that provides fresh meaning and purpose to your own life. And so we invite you,
YOU ARE WELCOME!
Stories of the call to discipleship continue as the Time after Epiphany plays out the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of fisherman brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people.
For the month of JANUARY we are collecting men's socks and underwear for the men in our sheltering.program.
