Faith, Family, and Friends takes place every fourth Sunday of the month. Families with young children are given the opportunity to step out of the sanctuary and into the Underground Room to worship in a hands-on way that encourages faith learning and growth between parent and child.
Please join us in celebrating this year's 19 graduates from our Prekindergarten and High-5 classes! The special graduation event begins at 5:30pm in the sanctuary, followed by an all-school Parent Connect dinner at 6:00pm. We are honored to send these students into Kindergarten with God's blessing! Everyone is invited!
For more information, contact Tosca Grimm.
Jesus said “I am the Bread of Life” because it communicates how necessary He is…He is as life-giving as the food we eat! Just as He served the world by giving of Himself to “feed” our spiritual needs, the St. Peter’s family would like to feed the needs of people with food insecurity in our community.
To do that, and in honor of the Lenten season beginning on Ash Wednesday, we hope to collect 40 donated items and $40 each week leading up to Easter Sunday! All donations will go directly to VEAP (Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People) who serve the Edina, South Minneapolis, Richfield, Bloomington communities.
Join in the joy of serving through our goal donation items:
· Wednesday, April 17 - Sunday, April 21: Rice for Resurrection Sunday (rice or rice based products)
MAKE A MEMORY WITH YOUR CHILD! Stop in with your son or daughter in the cafeteria on Friday, April 5 for a donut between 7-8am. You will also learn more about our Framily Easter Extravaganza event. Of course, the perfect complement for donuts is coffee and milk. Come and go as you desire / stick around as long as your schedule allows. It is sponsored by the Friday morning men’s missional small group.
If you have questions, contact Lowell Kuhlman by clicking on the email address to the right of "Contact" on the Men's Missional Small Group page.
Our Baptism Information Session is a low key opportunity to discuss what baptism is, how we practice it at St. Peter's and what your next step might be. You'll have one on one time with Pastor Mark Shockey to share your questions and discover answers. There's no registration and no follow up if you decide you are not interested.
For more information, you can contact Pastor Mark directly here.
Our Early Childhood Education Center will be closed on Friday, March 8 so that our school faculty can continue to develop their educational skills at Concordia University, St. Paul.
Financial Peace University is a nine-lesson money course that teaches step-by-step how to create a budget, pay off debt, spend wisely, and save for the future. This will ultimately help you live...and give(!)...like no one else!
Pastor Mark and his wife Joann will be coordinating the course after having attended it for themselves. Because of that, they are able to share how they have gained financial peace through this course.
We think the most wonderful time of the year is Operation: Christmas Child (OCC) season! To ensure that we are able to ship gift boxes full of God’s love to children all over the world, we need to start our work in September! Actually, our neighborhood children beat us to the punch…they’ve already raised $7.95 from cotton candy tips at our National Night Out to help cover the cost of shipping! What a great way to kick off OCC Season 2018!
Another great way is to join us on Sunday, September 23 after the worship service in The Commons where we will host a “Build-A-Box Workshop”where we will fold into shape all of the gift boxes to be used to carry Christmas gifts and the greatest Gift of all to children around the world! We hope to see you there!
