New Day Sermon pentecost 18 A lot of time can be spent chasing after greatness or being really great. But what is true greatness? And why does it totally feel upside down, backwards, and cockeyed?!
We're glad you're here!
Welcome in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Whether we are worshipping, learning, gathering for fellowship, or serving, we do so in Jesus’ name. We would love for you to find out more about the ministries of St. Peter’s.
From our Blog
Jesus stunned his disciples by putting children, the invisible ones in society, before the disciples. Who are the people who are invisible in our society today? We are called to welcome all people as children of God, even our enemies or people different from us.
