"And do not forget to do good and share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."
St. Peter's relies on the generosity of parishioners and the community to fulfill our call to ministry in this place.
St. Peter's most important form of income comes from the pledges of members and other supporters who commit to giving a set amount over the course of the year. Each fall, we run a Stewardship Campaign culminating in Stewardship Ingathering in November when we symbolically place our pledges for the coming year in the baptismal font. Pledges in any amount are important, and may be given weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually, by check, cash, or credit card via e-payment.
Many times, families request financial gifts to St. Peter’s memorial fun in memory of a loved one. These gifts are used for special projects, programs, and capital improvements important to the one being remembered. Contributions can be made at any time, whether at the time of death, an anniversary date such as a birthday, or whenever desired. When you make a gift, please also email the office so we know to apply it to the right person.
Our past is rich and full of great work, and we dream of expanding on our tradition of seeking and serving Christ in all people. However, our parish house, which has served us well as the hub of these ministries and services, has reached the end of its useful life. Through discussion and prayer with the congregation, we have discerned that now is the time to act and move forward with a new building.
We are preparing to build a place that brings together all that we value and allows us to expand on our ministries today and for many years to come. We will build a space that is accessible to all and fully functional for modern mission. This space will fit into the historic nature of our property, while providing modern facilities that will bring together the ministries of our congregation with community programs that provide for those in need.
