We believe that this kind of care extends also to our ministry of fellowship. We like to have fun at St. Peter’s and share our joy of being a community with all who enter our doors. Rarely a week passes by at St. Peter’s where we’re not having some event for members of our parish and friends to come together and enjoy food, fun and fellowship.
Concern for the world outside of our walls has long been an important theme at St. Peter’s Church. This is one way we believe we are living out Jesus’ words in Matthew 25: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”
We reach out beyond our walls by supporting other ministries through our own financial donations as well as collections, such as our backpack project, Layette Sunday or work with ECS. We are also
committed to ever-widening the circles of fellowship with our sisters and brothers who differ from us in culture, language and religion. We do so through our interfaith work and our relationship with our companion parishes in Guatemala.
“Whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.” Matthew 10:42
Care and concern for those among our own community is a ministry we value at St. Peter’s. Whether it is taking holy communion to a homebound parishioner, praying for someone at our Wednesday Healing service, or taking a home-cooked meal to a fellow parishioner in need, we reach out in compassion to our sisters and brothers as a sign of Christ’s love for them.
