Welcome!

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…

Out of the Waters: Resisting the Power of Fear

In these weeks of Lent, join us on Wednesdays as we explore scripture together and consider how we, as baptized people who’ve “come out of the water,” are called to be people motivated not by fear, but by grace and hope and promise. Join us at 5:30 for Soup Suppers, a time to partake of a simple meal together. Then we’ll gather at 7:00p.m. in the sanctuary for a time of Bible study and conversation, and we’ll close our time together with the Holden Evening Prayer worship service.

Surprised by Hope: Sunday Adult Book Study (through April 2nd)

Adam Rao’s book study and discussion on Surprised by Hope by N.T. Wright continues. Together, through a mixture of teaching and conversation, we will work through N.T. Wright’s Surprised by Hope, which rightly questions the way the end of the Christian story has often been interpreted and taught; pushes us to reconsider what the biblical authors were communicating when they speak of the end; and boldly challenges us to live and act as agents of justice and hope today in light of the coming future.

LSS Safe House—Clothing Drive

The LSS SafeHouse is grateful for the meals we prepare and deliver to the young adults living there on Monday evenings. Maybe you would like to help but making and delivering meals doesn’t fit for you at this time. In addition to the meal, the people staying at the SafeHouse could also use T-shirts, pajama pants, and socks (all sizes). There is a basket in the hall leading into the Fellowship Hall to place these donations. If you are delivering a meal and you think of it, check the basket and see if there are clothes donations that you could bring with the meal.

HOLY WEEK AT ST PEDER’S

                This final week of Lent leads us on to the gathering of Jesus and his disciples for their last supper on Maundy Thursday and the observance of his crucifixion on Good Friday before we gather to celebrate the joy of his resurrection on Easter Sunday.  We hope you’ll make time to be a part of this journey that is at the core of our Christian faith.  Invite a friend to worship with you as we open our hearts and doors during this holy season!
