Concluding Verse

Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine:  Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever.  Amen. 




Welcome to St Peter’s!  Our hope is that you will find God’s love present with you in this place and that you will return here often to worship.


Christian Ed classes for children meet at 10AM in the Parish House.  The curriculum is “Living the Good News”, based on the Lectionary. 


During Lent, the adults at 10AM will be studying God and the Mystery of Human Suffering, a recently published book by Robert Ryan. We will explore this complex subject through a discussion of scriptural and theological wrestling with suffering. 


The Lenten book group begins this Wednesday, Feb. 29th.  Come for a bowl of soup at 6:15PM followed by book group at 7PM.   We are reading Power and Passion, by Samuel Wells.  See Elizabeth Heimbach to order a copy of the book.


Happy Birthday – Virginia Fall (Feb. 27th), Mary Ann Betchy, Barbara Wisdom (Feb 28th)
