Our Harvest of Blessings

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. –1 Corinthians 3:6-7 Doesn’t fall give your spirit a boost when you see the colorful fruits and vegetables in the farm stands and supermarkets?

  • THE HOLIDAYS ARE QUICKLY APPROACHING!

    That means it is time to bake, decorate and  prepare holiday family meals and, of course, gift giving.  While we won’t come to your house and actually do any of these holiday necessities, we can make it a tad easier for you by offering gift cards from Stauffer’s, Giant, Weis and Oregon Dairy grocery stores. Every Sunday in the Narthex you simply purchase the gift cards at face value (no extra cost to you) and spend as you wish…a little at a time, all at once, or give them as gifts.  Cards may also be purchased during normal church business hours.  St. Peter’s receives 5% from each card sold so please consider participating in this ongoing ministry as an easy way to help reduce the church debt.  It’s a win-win!
