October 29th we will be adding additional members to our congregation by confirmation, please make plans to be here and welcome our newest members. We also want to welcome our new Organist/Pianist, Janet Meyers, who was selected by the Search Committee, Worship Committee and Church Council.


We will be honoring all of St Peter's members who have passed away since November 1, 2016,  on All Saint's Sunday, November 5th; we ask that family members of those passed please attend this service in memory of their loved one(s). If you have family members or friends not members of St. Peter, who have passed in the last year that you would like to remember in a prayer, please let Pastor Phil or the church office know so they can be added to the remembrance list.  


Our next meeting will be October 10th at 5:00 PM, if you would like to join our committee, please come to our meeting.

Women’s Bible Study with Shirley


Join Shirley for the monthly Women’s Bible study at noon on Thursdays. Bring a Bible and a friend. (And we will have extras of both, if you forget.)


Reminder - St. Peter now accepts electronic checks


Many people pay their bills on-line, and would prefer the convenience of electronic banking instead of donating at the collection plate.  For more details about the process, go to the St. Peter website at:
