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!
In today’s first reading we hear, “You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.” Yet we know we cannot achieve perfection. Our attempts to love neighbors and even our enemies fall short of what God desires for us. Yet in Jesus we see one who loved even those who persecuted and killed him. We are made holy in baptism, and forgiven at the table of God’s mercy. As a people made holy by God, we go in peace to love as we have been loved.
For the month of FEBRUARY we are collecting canned soups.
