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.

As the warmer weather coaxes us out of our houses and into parks and patios, don’t miss opportunities to build relationships with your faith community in-and-out of our church doors.  Mark your calendars with these wonderful warm weather events!

Summer Worship Schedule

There is one worship service at 9:00 a.m. through September 7.

A time of coffee and conversation follows the service each week.  A monthly Lawn Service will be a part of our summer worship again this year when we gather in the courtyard and lawn for an outdoor service (providing it doesn’t rain!).

Join Us for Worship in the Courtyard!

Our last outdoor worship service of the season is Sunday August 17.  We’ll set-up some chairs, but if you’d like to bring your own, please do.  If the weather isn’t cooperating, we’ll be inside as usual.  If you’d like to help set-up for worship on any of those Sundays, simply show up about 8:30 and we’ll put you to work!  Your help is greatly appreciated.

SEPTEMBER 7: God’s Work, Our Hands SUNDAY

We’ll join ELCA congregations across the country in a day of worship and service.  Worship will be at 9:00 am  -  and then we’ll send everyone off to participate in a service project.  Some projects will be here at St Peder’s  -  some will be off-site.  Our leadership team is busy planning opportunities for service, so look for more information later this month to begin signing up for what you’d like to do that day.  (We’ll have “coffee to go” that morning  – and once your service work is done, you can head home!)

10am Worship & backpack blessing!

11am Picnic Lunch & activities!

All are welcomed! Help us kick off our fall programs with a great end of the summer event!
