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.

Gather Bible Study

The Gather Bible Study meets on Tuesday, November 18 @ 9:30 am in the Church Library.  We will study Session 3:  Transformation takes time.  Just as Moses and the Israelites gradually came to belief in God and obedience to God’s covenant, our Christian beliefs and practices develop over time.

Anyone is welcome to attend.  Coffee and treats precede our Bible Study.

PCYC Annual Children’s Gift Sale 2014

 Teach Children the Joy of Giving this Christmas

The Annual Children’s Gift Sale allows the neighborhood children to purchase 5 new gifts for their loved ones, mom, dad, grandma, sibling, cousin, or other loved one for a $1.00 and enable the children to learn the joy of giving as they shop alongside a caring volunteer.

Our help is needed to provide the gifts the children will buy.  PCYC suggests gifts in the $7 to $10 range for men, women, teenagers, children, and infants.  Gift suggestions will be listed on the stars on the Christmas tree outside the fellowship hall.  Please place your gifts in the box under the PCYC Christmas tree by Sunday, November 30th and they will be delivered in time for the sale.  Money is accepted and used to purchase additional items for the sale.

For questions about the sale, organization, or volunteering for the event go to or call Kristi Erickson at 612-823-2273 or PCYC at 612-643-2000.
