On Sunday, February 23, “Psalm 100″ will enrich our Sunday morning worship service at St. Peter’s UMC with their unique style of musical praise.
This group of singers describes themselves as follows: “Psalm 100 is a co-ed a cappella group on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only Lord of our lives who brought us salvation by dying for our sins (Acts 5:30-32). He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, our Connection through the Holy Spirit to the perfect Father God in heaven (John 14:6). Every note we sing and every testimony we give is under His will and for His glory.”
We will have one worship service that morning followed by a Fellowship Luncheon; the schedule will be as follows:
Sunday School: 9:30am
Worship Service: 10:30
Fellowship Luncheon: 12 noon.
February 23 is also designated as an “Each One Reach One” Sunday at St. Peter’s UMC where all of our members and regular worshipers are asked to invite a friend, neighbor or co-worker to church.
Come and join us – you will be blessed!
Ash Wednesday is the start of Lent, a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which ends on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter). St. Peter’s UMC will hold a special Ash Wednesday worship service where believers and seekers can confront their own mortality and confess their sins before God within the community of faith. As individuals, and as a church family, we will focus on sin and death in the light of God’s redeeming love. It’s a time where we can be reminded of the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the need we all have for a renewal of our faith.
Join us Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at 6:00pm for this deeply meaningful service.

They will join us for worship on Sunday morning and will also make a special presentation on their mission work at 6:00pm Sunday evening.

I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven.
- John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer (1780)
