Sermon Series: Wonder Bread

In John’s Gospel, Jesus says, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”  What exactly does Jesus mean here when he refers to Himself in this manner?  Join us for a sermon series on John’s Gospel to learn of this “wonder bread” sent to us from God the Father.

Sermon Series: Miracle Grow

When we accept the forgiveness offered by Christ, and receive His free gift of salvation, we become a new creation.  Our old life of sin comes to an end, and our new life as a child of God begins.  Becoming a Christian is not an end goal, but a beginning of a new life.  When a person puts his or her faith in Christ, they become a new creation, and new life begins for them as the Holy Spirit empowers them to grow in their love of God and neighbor.  Join us as Pastor Karl leads us through a four week sermon series on growing as a Christian.

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!

Sermon Series: “The Big Story”

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most important event in the history of the human race.  On that first Easter morning, angels at the empty tomb told the women, “Go quickly and tell his disciples, he has been raised from the dead.’”  And so, for more than 2,000 years, this wondrous news has been shared again and again.  This is an important story.  It is the story of what God has done for us.  Join us during this season of Easter for a sermon series entitled “The Big Story,” as we celebrate the greatest story ever told.
