Worship at St. Peter's

This Sunday, June 9, Pastor Steve brings the message How to Pray Twice from Psalm 92:1-15.

Join us in a heartfelt celebration of over three decades of Lynn Silver's ministry. We pay tribute to her this Sunday, acknowledging her unwavering commitment, innovative spirit, and boundless love that have enriched our church community. Our worship service will begin at 10:00 AM, followed by a taco luncheon in the Boathouse.

St. Peter's wants to ensure you get the most out of in-house worship. If you are having difficulties hearing the message, sound-amplifying devices are available at the back of the Sanctuary. Ask an usher to assist you.

Patti Hugh gives the FLOWERS this Sunday in thanksgiving for her daughters Lesa, Cristi, and Betsi.


Holy, Holy, Holy

We’ll open worship this week with what Alfred Lord Tennyson felt was the world’s greatest hymn: Holy, Holy, Holy. The author of the text, Reginald Heber, was an Anglican vicar in Shropshire, England, who wanted to create a set of hymns suitable for each Sunday of the liturgical church year. He wrote Holy, Holy, Holy to celebrate the Triune God and to be sung on Trinity Sunday (the eighth Sunday after Easter). The hymn was first published in 1826, but the tune we sing today – NICAEA – was written years later by John Dykes specifically to be used with Heber’s text.

The words are based on Rev. 4:8 – “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” Heber used the symbolism of three constantly throughout the hymn: ‘God in three persons’ is ‘holy, merciful and mighty’; he’s ‘perfect in power, in love and purity’; he’s worshiped by saints, cherubim, and seraphim; and he’s praised ‘in earth and sky and sea.’

(This is one of Lynn Silver's favorite hymns.)

Holy, Holy, Holy

Exodus - Learning to Trust God

Trust God. Sounds simple, right? Yet, you know it is often very, very difficult to trust God with the things that matter most to you--money, career, marriage, health. As we study the book of Exodus, we'll see that Israel faced similar struggles to trust God completely. In this story of hardship and hope, we'll discover along with Israel that God--and God alone--is worthy of our trust.

Bring your favorite Bible as we read and discuss the Israelites’ journey out of Egypt, prompted by discussion questions from the Life Guide series.

Life Lessons from

James, by Max Lucado

Do your Monday actions reflect your Sunday worship? How about your claims to faith? Is your life full of noticeable changes and actions?

James, the half-brother of Jesus, wasn't impressed with talk. He knew that a life of faith was all about actions that revealed a difference in a person's life. For him, it was not that works save the Christian but that they mark the Christian. In his letter, he boldly deals with practical issues of faith not bound by culture or place. He shows the importance of living a genuine life of faith. His message is bare-knuckled as he encourages, challenges, and confronts, offering practical words and admonitions to live out our faith.
