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.

annual checkup post

Sermon Series: “Time for Your Annual Checkup!”

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, the Church enters into the season of Lent, a season of forty days, not counting Sundays.  The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.  Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter.  Each year, Lent gives us an opportunity to take stock of our spiritual health, and see where we need to make adjustments to our way of living.

Join us during this season of self-examination and reflection as Pastor Karl presents a Lenten sermon series entitled, “Time for Your Annual Checkup!”

Sermon Series: Called to Share

Being a believer is about more than getting into heaven one day.  As followers of Christ, we join a long list of individuals who received a call from God to go and share with others people what God wanted them to hear.  Join us, starting Sunday, January 14, 2018, for a four-part sermon series entitled “Called to Share.”  We will learn about God’s call upon the lives of people like Samuel, Jonah, Moses, and, of course, the Apostle Paul, how they each responded to that call, and what happened when they decided to go and share what God had revealed to them.  Come and hear what God has to say through the stories of these men of old – it might just change your view of what YOU are called to do!

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.
