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

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.

Special Events 

Thanksgiving Potluck| Friday, November 22 at noon. The annual November gathering for retired folks is a Thanksgiving feast!Turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy are provided. Please bring a favorite side dish or dessert to share. And invite a friend to come and join us as we give thanks for all God’s good gifts! (You don’t have to be retired to come and join us… our thanksgiving table is for all!)

Gift Sunday| Sunday, December 1st  As you do your holiday shopping, don’t forget an opportunity we have at St Peder’s to share our blessings with others.  This year’s gifts will go again to the Center for Victims of Torture and The Division of Indian Work.  Every year, your generosity is received with gratitude by these organizations. Sunday, December 1 is GIFT SUNDAY when you’ll be invited to bring your unwrapped gifts or gifts cards forward as we gather them around the altar.  (We do not need wrapping paper or ribbon.) Gifts for children are given to the Division of Indian Work.  Books, games, toys and stuffed animals, as well as outerwear garments, are needed.  Because many refugees are not from cold climates, The Center for Victims of Torture needs outerwear gifts for adults (gloves, hats, and scarves), thermal underwear – tops and bottoms for both men and women (all sizes), warm socks, and heat packets for hands and feet that are sold at gas stations and sports stores.  Many clients use public transportation in every kind of weather, and waiting for a bus can get cold!  Gift cards for Target, etc. so that the recipients can purchase snow boots and appropriate winter shoes are helpful, too  –  and they can be distributed all year round!
