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!
Jesus begins his public ministry by calling fishers to leave their nets and follow him. In Jesus the kingdom of God has come near. We who have walked in darkness have seen a great light. We see this light most profoundly in the cross—as God suffers with us and all who are oppressed by sickness, sin, or evil. Light dawns for us as we gather around the word, the font, and the holy table. We are then sent to share the good news that others may be “caught” in the net of God’s grace and mercy.
For the month of JANUARY we are collecting slightly-used men’s winter jackets, boots, new underwear and new socks for our HIHI program.
