Worship This Weekend

Good Friday, March 29,

6:00 PM in the Sanctuary

St. Peter’s Good Friday service will be led by St. Peter’s Chancel Choir with the presentation of

Tenebrae—A Service of Darkness by Hal. H. Hopson. This will be a service of meaning and reflection as we come face to face with the enormous sacrifice that was made on our behalf.

Easter Sunrise

Service 6:30 AM corner of PCH & Warner

Those who want to start their day early should come to St. Peter’s Sunrise Service on March 31 at 6:30 AM on the corner of PCH and Warner. Look for the St. Peter’s banner. Coffee will be served. Parking is available behind the Jack-in-the-Box Restaurant. 

Easter Morning 9:00 AM Service in the Sanctuary


The 9:00 AM Easter Service on March 31 will be filled with music, and there will be an Easter Message that will have you leaving with your heart filled with the Good News that Jesus is alive today for you and me.


Follow up the Sunrise Service or come early for the 9:00 AM service for a fantastic Crepe Breakfast that will be served before and after the 9:00 AM service.

Bring Flowers on Easter

An Easter tradition at St. Peter's is to adorn a cross on our front lawn with flowers from our congregation to celebrate our risen Lord.

You may drop off your flowers by the cross either before or after the 9:00 AM service.

The FLOWER BOUQUET this Sunday in the 9:00 AM service is given by Marlene Reed in memory of her parents Enoch and Marie Christosfersen.



Christ Is Alive!

In 1968, Easter Sunday fell 10 days after the assassination of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. Brian Wren, an English theologian, author, and prolific hymn writer, wanted a song that expressed the certain joy that Christ works daily in our lives. He notes:

I tried to express an Easter hope out of that terrible event, in words which could be more widely applied, and wrote ‘Christ Is Alive!’ because our available hymns spoke of Easter as a glorious event long ago, far away, and high above.

Stanzas 1, 2, and 5 of Christ is Alive!, which we’ll sing before Steve’s Easter message at 9:00 AM, each begins with the bold litany, “Christ is alive!” In v.1, we are called to take our singing and praise from the sanctuary to the world; in v.2, we declare that Christ’s saving and healing transcend space and time; and in the final verse, we sing of the new creation in which earth, sky, and ocean all participate in a joyful world of “justice, love and praise” (v.5).
