Worship

Whether it is traditional or praise, youth-oriented or sagely-focused, within the sanctuary or among God's creation, worship is the community called and gathered in Jesus' name.

Join Us For Worship

Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Tell of his salvation from day to day…For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised!

–1 Chronicles 16:23-24

Worship is a time for all of God’s children to gather in the name of the Lord where we may find peace in forgiveness, grace in baptism and communion, shared dedication in our prayers and commitment to responding to our Lord’s call. When we worship our Lord we are filled with good things: grace, God’s Word in our lives, and a love for the Lord and our neighbor. You have a place here at St. Peter’s and your presence will bless our worship.

Traditional Worship

Word and Sacrament

St. Peter’s worship is rooted in the Word of God. Our liturgy, prayers and music find inspiration from God’s Word. Our worship is given life through God’s sacraments. We are given our identity as God’s children through the sacrament of baptism and receive the assurance of grace through the sacrament of communion.

Martin Luther liked to say that in preaching, the Word of God is “poured into our ears.” Each week one of our rostered leaders prepares a message that connects the Biblical themes of the day with our lives, the world in which we live, and our relationship with our Almighty God. We hope that you too may feel the Word of God pouring into your heart, mind and soul.
