2018 Vacation Bible School

It’s time to make plans for VBS!  St. Peter’s UMC will hold our annual Vacation Bible School June 25-29, for children age 2 through those who have just finished sixth grade.  This year’s theme is “Shipwrecked” – we will explore an uncharted island where kids are rescued by Jesus!  Children will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through every storm in life.  They’ll learn to hold onto God’s promises when they are lonely, they worry, they struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless.
We hope you will make plans to join us for this 5-day adventure of fun and learning!

Make sure to mark your calendars, and call the church office at (252)726-2175 to register your child.  We hope to see you there!

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 Thursday, 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.

Sermon Series 3 Post

Sermon Series: What It’s Really All About

The weeks leading up to Christmas are a time of preparation.  We busy ourselves with addressing Christmas cards, attending holiday gatherings, and searching for that perfect Christmas gift to buy for someone we love.  Churches prepare by putting up decorations, rehearsing special music, and helping children practice for the annual Christmas play.  Christmas will be here on December 25, whether we’re ready or not!  Do we ever get so busy preparing for Christmas that we lose sight of what this season – Advent – is really all about?

Join us on Sunday mornings during Advent for a sermon series entitled “What It’s Really About.”  Remember, Advent is a season of preparation – a time for us to prepare our hearts for the coming of our Lord.

Sermon Series 3 PostSunday, December 3 -  Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37
Sunday, December 10 -  Isaiah 40:1-11; Mark 1:1-8
