This Week at St. Peters
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 tells of Jesus' temptation in the desert. His forty-day fast becomes the basis of our Lenten pilgrimage. In the early church Lent was a time of intense preparation for those to be baptized at the Easter Vigil. This catechetical focus on the meaning of faith is at the heart of our Lenten journey to the baptismal waters of Easter. Hungry for God's mercy, we receive the bread of life to nourish us for the days ahead.
For the month of MARCH we are collecting peanut butter and jelly.
