What We Believe
Saint Peter Lutheran Church is a church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We believe in one God who comes to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in God as our creator, and as one who cares for us as a parent would a child. We believe God has shown his love for us in becoming human in Jesus Christ. We believe that through Jesus' death and resurrection we are given life, hope and salvation. We believe God continues to be with us, active in our lives and in the world through the Holy Spirit.
Called as children of God, and claimed by the Holy Spirit, the members of St. Peter Lutheran Church are gathered together to build each other up to use and grow our gifts in the multitude of ministries we share – and are sent out to serve the greater church, our community, and our world by using those gifts and ministries to share God’s love as the united people of God.
Happenings Around St. Peter
- St. Peter has been offering a “Creation Station” for children during worship services this summer. The purpose of this offering is to make kids feel welcome in worship! By offering an opportunity for little ones to leave the sanctuary for a brief time and participate in a craft that connects the Children’s Sermon with a hands-on activity we give them another way to learn, acknowledge their developmental need to move, and provide another way worship is for them. We have opportunities for two Creation Station volunteers per worship service to help children complete a craft. Children are invited to the Fellowship Hall following the Children’s Sermon. Supplies and instructions are provided. Click the button below to sign up!
