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.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

On December 24, St. Peter’s will hold a special Christmas Eve worship service. Join us as we raise our voices in song on this most joyous evening to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Come and hear the ancient Gospels bring to life the story of that night so long ago when God’s love came down in the person of a tiny baby born; marvel at how a meager cattle stall became the birthplace of salvation; experience God’s gift of forgiveness as we gather around the Lord’s Table; and celebrate with us as we share the Light of Christ with one another and welcome the True Light into the world.

Longest Night

The Longest Night Service of Worship will take place at St. Peter’s UMC on Wednesday, December 21, at 7:00pm.

The Longest Night Service is a time to recognize that Christmas can be a bittersweet time of the year. The constant refrain we hear during the holidays about getting together with family reminds many people of what and whom they have lost, or what they never had. Broken relationships, financial and job worries, ill health, the pain of isolation – all of these can make one feel alone in the midst of the festivities of the holidays. The Longest Night Service is an opportunity to acknowledge your sadness and concerns before God in the sacred space of worship.  It’s an opportunity to know God’s presence during this season and to sense and experience the love of others.   It’s an opportunity to experience a meditative worship service that gives time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ.

Join with us to hear scripture, offer prayers for healing and wholeness, and to hear songs that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who grieve, for those who struggle. Come and find God’s light in the darkness of the longest night of the year.

Everyone is welcome.
