On Sunday July 27, 2014, there will be a special voters meeting at 9:15 am to vote on a recommendation by the Elders and Board of Directors.
The recommendation from the Elders is to permanently change to two Sunday Services. The service times will remain at 8:00 am and 10:30 am throughout the year and Wednesday Service will remain at 7:00 pm. It is also the recommendation of the Elders to return to communion at 8:00 am on the 1st and 3rd Sundays; with 10:30 am and Wednesday evening on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.
The time between services (9:15 - 10:15 am) will become dedicated to Sunday School, Sunday morning Confirmation Classes, Bible Study and other church activities such as Fellowship.
Some of the reasons for the recommended change:
- Members have expressed that they enjoy a fuller church service.
- Members enjoy getting to know more people from their congregation.
- A fuller church is more welcoming to visitors.
- Allows Pastor and Vicar to lead a Bible Study and Sunday Morning Confirmation Classes.
- Encourages children to go to Sunday School and then church with their family.
- Gives a dedicated Bible Study and Sunday School time with the desire of having more volunteers to enhance our Sunday School program.
If you are not able to be at the Voter's Meeting, please feel free to write down your comments or email your comments and share them with Pastor Haller. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

What Talent Has God Given You?
What Talent Do You Want To Share To God’s Glory And For God’s Church?
Over 160 years members of St. Peter’s have been joining together to serve God and serve His church through service to Christ, congregation and community!
If you ponder what God has done through our members service to Christ and His church over these years, you will be overwhelmed. For 160+ years God has provided the talents to accomplish His work and to share Christ through word and deed.
As I share this, as your Senior Pastor, please know that many Christian Churches are struggling to accomplish the ministry God has set before them. Many church members are not sharing their God given talents, like they once did. ........... CONTINUED CLICK HERE

Update ---- “Are We Thankful For A Place To Worship And Learn More About God’s Amazing Love For Us?”
What Has Happened since this last update???????
-Let’s do this together-
We are half way through the time frame to raise $125,000 by April 30, 2014: To date $23,897 has been raised. This is commendable based upon the number of people who have given. It’s time for every member to stop and pray about this. It’s time to pray, “What can I give to God’s ministry?”
The time is now for everyone of us to contribute something towards this goal. As a congregation we are at a point that can move us forward, remain the same or begin a slide. As much as I like going down slides this is one I am not, nor is necessary.
God has given you this church and God has given you everything necessary to provide for a healthy ministry here in Eastpointe. May all of us return a portion out of thankfulness to God via our regular offerings and this additional sacrificial offering.
God has given us everything to make this happen and even a way to do it to His Glory.
May we do this together!
