Sermon Series: “When in Rome…”

Join us on Sunday mornings this summer as Pastor Karl offers a sermon series on the Book of Romans.  We live in a society where forces from without and within call for our allegiance.  As we struggle against the temptations of this world, how can we stay true to our calling to follow Christ?  This sermon series will examine Paul’s teachings for the Christians in 1st century Rome, and look at how his directives are relevant to believers in 21st century America.

Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.*

Covenant Renewal Service

The start of a new year is seen as a chance to hit the reset button on our lives, as we resolve to lose weight, exercise more, or be better persons than we have been in the past. Real change, however, can only come from a life transformed through a relationship with Jesus Christ. What better way to begin a new year than by renewing our commitment to Him?

On Saturday, December 31, at 7:00pm, St. Peter’s will hold a Covenant Renewal Service where we will gather as individuals and as a family to recommit ourselves to following God’s will in our lives. Join us for this powerful evening of spiritual renewal as we prepare our hearts and minds to enter into 2017 as a people set apart by God, called to share His love in the world.
