What We Believe
  • 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 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.  

Mission Statement

  • Community Garden Sign Up for a Plot this Summer! St. Peter Lutheran Church's one acre of land just south of our parking lots was used last summer for gardens by our members. The acre proved to be in excess of what our members needed so we are working with the City of Grimes to open up a Community Garden. If you would like to reserve a plot you may register online or by calling the Grimes Library at 515-986-3551.

Sponsorship packets and directions are located on the counter under the Service bulletin board in Fellowship Hall.  Thank you for your support!
  • As we celebrated the resurrection on Sunday, during Children's Sermon, Pastor Mark passed our bells and taught them to ring them every time the word, Alleluia was spoken. In the video, Pastor Mark proclaims, "He is Risen!" and the congregation responds with "He is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!" What joy to hear the bells ring as the children respond.
