OUR MINISTRIES

 

Discipleship to Jesus includes both witness and service. In both words and actions we seek to proclaim and reveal God's love in Jesus Christ. Here is a snapshot of some of our ministry opportunities.

Worship

Worship is central to our life as Christians. We are shaped and defined by the cross of Jesus Christ. The scriptures are God's living voice that interprets, shapes, and transforms our lives. Our sins are forgiven, our wounds are healed, and we are given hope and strength to face life's daily challenges. In worship we are filled with God's love so that we might empty ourselves in Christian service and witness. Join us on Sunday mornings at 9am, either in person or on-line. *View our Return to Worship policies here.

Music

 Music is the soul of worship. We love to sing and make a joyful noise to the Lord. Our choir practices on Wednesday nights and sings most Sundays at the 8:30 worship service. Our praise team leads our 10:45 worship service. Our bell choir practices on Mondays and plays once a month. The repertoire of music at St. Peter's includes a wide range of styles. Our Sunday School sings in worship several times each year.

Education

We offer several opportunities for adult and youth education on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.

Senior Citizens

Our seniors are an active asset to the life and ministry of St. Peter's Lutheran. They sing in our choir, mentor our Confirmation students, serve a Wednesday night supper, visit our shut-ins, and meet several times a year for fellowship and food.

Parents & Young Adults

With a busy schedule, typically, all week long, parents and young adults can still find opportunities to help out and be involved with the church. We have many smaller, but impactful ways to help with projects and volunteer opportunities - without being tied to a long-term commitment.

Youth

Youth are the future, and present, of our church. Our senior high, St. Peter's Youth (SPY), meets on Wednesdays and Sundays. We offer trips like the ELCA National Youth Gathering, servant trips, and high adventure trips.

Our middle school confirmation classes are held on Wednesdays and also gather on Sunday mornings. These kids also have opportunities to volunteer in the community and live the word of God.

Sunday School

Faith is shaped and formed throughout our lifetime. Sunday School begins at age 3 and goes through 5th grade. Our classes meet on Sunday mornings and include stories from the Bible, supporting crafts, and music time. The Sunday School students also enjoy putting on our annual Christmas Program mid-December.

Community Service

Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Wednesday evening meals, Prayer Chains, Operation Joy, and TORCH are a few of the ministries in which we are involved in the local community. Stretching outside our community, we have groups who are active in supporting organizations like Lutheran World Relief, Feed My Starving Children and Sharing and Caring Hands.
