About us

Who We Are

The disciples who make up Saint Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church are passionate about serving the community; welcoming others as we have been welcomed by God; and coming alongside our youth, young families, and adults of all ages on their journey
of discipleship.

 

We are Lutheran Christians, which means that we are a people who understand God to be gracious and generous. As it says in Psalm 103, "the Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love."

St. Peter has a 150 year history and a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. See more about our History here.

We hope you will join us for a worship service to experience for yourself the fellowship of God's people here.
