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 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.
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.
Faith is shaped and formed throughout our lifetime. Sunday School begins at age 3 and meets on Sunday mornings. We have CAT for grades 4-5 on Wednesdays as well as Confirmation for grades 6-8. We offer several opportunities for adult education on both Sunday mornings and throughout the week.
Youth are not the future of the church, they are the church present. Our senior high (SPY) meets on Wednesdays and Sundays. We offer summer trips which rotate between the ELCA National Youth Gathering, servant trips, and high adenture trips.
Faith on Tap
Are you interested in discussing matters of faith as they intersect with current issues in the news? Join us on the first and third Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. at Froggy Bottoms. Grab a pint and join us for good conversation and fellowship. Calendar updates can be found on our live calendar, and topics are often posted on our facebook page.
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.
Habitat for Humanity, Thursdays Table, Prayer Chains, Operation Joy, and Sharing and Caring Hands 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 and Guatemala Missions through Common Hope.
