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.
Coming Soon at St. Peder’s…
Multicultural Bridge Building
10:30 am—Facilitator is Birgitte Simpson
As Christians, we are called to love our neighbor. One way to do this is to learn how each of us can build bridges to honor our diversity and live together with hope instead of fear and distrust. The Journeying Toward Justice team is sponsoring four sessions these winter weeks that will help us explore how we can live out Jesus’ command.
These forums will meet January 8, 15, and 29, and February 12. (There is no Faith Forum on January 22 or February 5.)
Our own seminarian, Birgitte Simpson, will be lead us through these sessions. Birgitte is a third year Master of Divinity student and candidate for ordination at Luther Seminary. She has been the student leader of Luther’s Dismantling Racism: Beloved Community student group for the past year and a half, and studied urban ministry with the Seminary Consortium for Urban Pastoral Education. Birgitte has been through the Kaleidoscope Institute’s Catalyst training and the Intercultural Development Inventory, tools she will draw upon for these forums.
Join us as we seek to learn more about ourselves and one another!
Join us February 1 at Parkway Pizza at 7pm! People of all ages can join but you must be 21 or over to drink adult beverages!
All Ages Church Game Night:
Friday, February 3 from 6:30-9:30
Bring your favorite game and a snack to share for an all church game night! We’ll have different tables set up so you can play board or card games. Play with your family or mix it up and play with someone you don’t know very well!
Come as you are! Come for part of the time or the whole time! Bring a neighbor or friend.
All are welcome for this fun evening.
Shepherding Group Sunday is Feb. 5!
It’s time to meet and plan!
After worship and some social time together in the Fellowship Hall, we’ll gather in our Shepherding Groups to make plans for Lenten Soup Suppers (that begin the first Wednesday of March) and other service commitments and opportunities.
The Shepherding Group lists will be posted on the bulletin board outside the church office – and space assignments for the meetings that day will be posted as well.
Thanks for all you do in your Shepherding Groups throughout the year to support St Peder’s mission and ministry!
