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…

God’s Work. Our Hands.

Sunday—September 11th

A Day of Service coming in September!

The ELCA God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday is an opportunity for all ELCA congregations to spend time in service to others. We’ll participate again this year on Sunday, September 11. After worship and coffee, there’ll be a variety of activities to help with – all on site or doing clean-up along River Parkway.

Rally Sunday–September 18th

On September 18th we’ll kick off a new Sunday school year! At 9:00 am we’ll have one service, with Shannon preaching. We’ll bless backpacks and commission teachers. After the service we’ll have lunch from Cap’s Grille, games on the lawn, and a chance to have fun together. All ages are welcome! No cost, but an offering basket will be present for those interested in helping with the cost of the food. To register (so we can get an initial head count), email or call Shannon.

Gather Bible Study, September 20th @ 9:30 am
