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.

 Coming up at St. Peder’s…

Worship in the Courtyard This Summer

We’re continuing our tradition of worshiping outdoors once a month in the summer! This year, we’ll worship in the Courtyard on June 18, July 16, and August 20. We’re grateful for a pleasant spot outside to gather and enjoy creation’s beauty as well as a time to worship together. In case of inclement weather, we’ll worship indoors.

Peace Camp at St. Peder’s

Summer Peace Camp will happen at St. Peder’s from August 7-11. Peace Camp is for kiddos ages 3 through leaving 5th grade. Youth from 6th-12th grade will lead the camp. Our theme will be Wizards & Muggles: Learning to Love.  Put on your wizard hat and enter the world of Harry Potter! You’ll be sorted into houses, learn about magic, and explore what it means to be a good wizard in a diverse world. Register your child today!

Looking for some great summer reading?

Summer’s a perfect time to curl up with a book, and the St. Peder’s library has lots to offer for adults, kids and families!  You’ll find some great ideas in the current Messenger and on a special display shelf on the library table (for both adults and teens), in the bin marked “Great Summer Reads” in the Red Cart and in the New Acquisitions bookshelf.  Check the regular shelves, too–we’ve added lots of new titles for adults, teens and kids, and notice the stickers indicating Best Sellers and Award Winners.

Summer Photo Contest

We know many of our members are talented with a camera and we’d love to see your creative side!

This isn’t just any photo contest—it’s about the impact St. Peder’s has on you and the world. The theme is “The Heart of St.Peders”. Capture a moment, scene, or landscape that you think represents St. Peder’s at its core. How do you see St. Peder’s members “joyfully living the gospel” on Sundays and all days? It could be a moment of service and activism, of laughter, or of caring.  Maybe a photo captures how you connect to God, be that on a walk in your neighborhood or on the North Shore. We invite you to outside the box and explore how your unique gifts, stories and experiences  enrich our local church and our global mission. From selfies to sunsets—your imagination is the limit!

Submit photos by using the hashtag #heartofstpeders on Instagram and tagging @stpedersmpls and include a brief caption (100 words or less) about your photo. You can also submit by email (office@stpeders.org )or mail in your photos (8×10 preferred). You can submit as many photos as you’d like—there’s no limit. All ages are encouraged to participate. Have fun!

Please send us your photos before August 15th. Winners will be featured in the September Messenger, and all entries will be displayed in the halls on Rally Sunday as we kick-off another year of ministry together. Questions—ask Sarah Zuber office@stpeders.org
