We love because God first loved us. - 1 John 4:19
As Christians saved by God's mercy and grace, we are called by the Holy Spirit to participation in God's mission. The work of the church includes a variety of ministries.
First and foremost as a congregation, we gather for weekly worship. In worship, we are fed, equipped and sent out to participate in God's mission. All are welcome in worship.
Along with worship, some of the key ministries of the church fall into the area of education. Part of the church's mission is to equip the Body of Christ to share the Good News of Christ.
Education includes people of all ages. St. Peter has many active education ministries including:
Please visit the Education page for more information on each of these important ministries.
One way to get involved is by training as a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers accompany people going through tough times by listening and engaging in a confidential, caring, one-to-one relationship.
Could you use someone to listen to you? Are you going through a tough time? Or do you know someone who might benefit from a relationship with a Stephen Minister? See the Stephen Ministry page for more information on how to get involved or how to get a Stephen Minister assigned.
Adult Choir - 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesdays, September through May.
Senior Choir is open to all high school through adult voices. This group is not professional - just people who enjoy singing! Previous choir experience or even knowing how to read music is not necessary. Parts are practiced separately and together as a group.
The choir generally sings at the 8:15 am service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, and at the 10:30 service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and occasionally at the Saturday 4:30 service. Choir is a great place for fellowship, fun, and praising God with your voice!
We have a wide variety of small group ministries happening regularly. From quilting, to men's breakfast, to women's Bible Study, to Senior Fellowship lunches, there is a place for you in a small group. See the small group ministry page to learn about the different groups. Be sure to check out the Calendar to see the most current schedule.
And if there's not a group you're interested, let the Lay Ministry board know what might be a good fit for you! We're always looking for new groups to start!
All are welcome to visit St. Peter or to get involved with any of the ministries going on here. Please call the church office for more information 563-583-0860.
