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!
Today’s gospel combines a saying that makes many of us uncomfortable with a story we find comforting. Jesus’ saying on divorce is another of his rejections of human legislation in favor of the original intent of God’s law. Jesus’ rebuke of the disciples who are fending off the children should challenge us as well. What does it mean to receive the kingdom of God as a child does?
For the month of OCTOBER we are collecting rice and pasta side dishes.
