Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons,
loving your neighbor as yourself?
Will you strive for justice and peace among all people,
and respect the dignity of every human being?
The last two promises of the Baptismal Covenant form the heart of our outreach and community ministries at St. Peter’s. Indeed, these ministries are very important to our members as well for fellowship and an opportunity to connect our faith with the world around us as we engage both the local and global communities.
We invite you to join us in our ministries of love and service.
