St. Peder’s affirms the welcome of God to all persons.

St Peder’s welcomes you to a community of faith nurtured by God’s abundant grace, Christ’s peace and the Spirit’s lively presence!  In response to such love, we open our hearts and hands and doors to joyfully serve our neighbor – whether it’s you or someone across the world.  We invite you to join us for worship or any activity at the little church on the corner of 46th Avenue and 42nd Street in South Minneapolis.

St. Peder’s Member’s: Sign up for Photos with Lifetouch Photography–April 8th-11th

Do you ever see people in church and wonder what their names are? Have you ever heard an announcement regarding a member and wishes you could put a face with a name? Are you new to our church and wish you had something to help you put names with faces? Well, help is on the way! We are producing a pictorial directory for our church. There is no cost to you or to the church to have your photograph taken, and you will receive a complimentary 8×10 portrait and directory for participating. You will be able to view your images electronically immediately after you are photographed. At that time, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits to share with family and friends. We look forward to “seeing you in pictures!”

You may sign up on Wednesday nights or Sunday mornings at church, call the church office at 612-722-8000 or sign up online.

Grown-ups & Koinonia Spring Potluck–come celebrate Spring!

Invite a friend, bring a favorite dish to share, and let’s gather again (finally!) for some fine food and fellowship at the April 17 Grownups and Koinonia Luncheon.  We’ll eat at noon.  Don’t miss this opportunity to share a meal with friends old and new – and enjoy one another’s company on a spring day.

A Festive Sunday, April 19…St. Peder’s presents presents Gabriel Faure’s Requiem

Join us for worship (one service at 9:00 a.m.) this Sunday as the St Peder’s Choir, directed by Anika Kildegaard, presents Gabriel Faure’s Requiem.  This musical offering promises a meaningful worship experience!  (There is no 10:30 worship on April 19.)   After worship, we’ll gather as usual in the Fellowship Hall for coffee and conversation.  And, we’ll also take some time for the Blessing of the Kitchen as we formally give thanks for our newly remodeled kitchen.  This will be an opportunity to offer a prayer of blessing and express our gratitude to everyone who has contributed to making the renovation a reality. Plan to be a part of this festive occasion on April 19!  It’s a great way to celebrate new life in this season of Easter!

It’s time to think about CSA again!

For the third year, St Peder’s will serve as a drop site for a wonderful CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  This year’s produce will come from Twin Lakes CSA, a new Amish farming community near Mora, MN.  Freshly harvested produce will be delivered on Wednesdays throughout the summer and fall  -  you can choose what “share” you’d like to receive.  Brochures with information and sign-up forms are available on the table outside the Fellowship Hall.  If you have questions, please talk with Pastor Julie.  Sign-up soon so you don’t miss out!

Support our local food shelf and provide for those in need!

And when it grew late, Jesus disciples came to him and said, “This is a lonely place, and the hour is now late; Send them away, to go into the country and villages round about and buy themselves something to eat.”  But Jesus answered them, “You give them something to eat.” Mark 6:35-37

We invite you to share the suggested food as well as personal items (Breakfast, Staples, Grooming, Baby Foods, Ethnic-specific) with Minnehaha Food Shelf.  There is a collection box at St. Peder’s.
