Lenten Worship at St. Peder’s

Join us on Wednesday evenings throughout Lent for a simple soup supper from 5:30-6:30 pm, hosted by our members. This time of fellowship is followed by contemplation and worship as we join together for Holden evening prayer  at 7:00 pm throughout the Lenten season.

Following the prayer service, many join for Lenten Book Study, a time of discussion and shared spiritual insight as we journey through Be Still and Know: God’s Presence in Silence by Norris J. Chumley.


            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!

Savory Spring Farms CSA comes to St. Peder’s

A CSA (community supported agriculture) is a direct relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and consumers. By purchasing a CSA membership, you become a partner alongside the farmers, and you’ll receive a “share” of the harvest bounty – fresh, organic vegetables & fruit – delivered directly to St. Peder’s.
