Why Do We.... What is Ministry?

What do you mean Ministry is not the Minister?  

The goal of all ministry is to point all people to Jesus Christ..... The Minister is part of it, but a Pastor serves the members of the congregation as THEY spread the Gospel message. HuH?? Continued CLICK HERE


Why Do We Do That? All Saints' Day

An ancient observance on November 1st  that originally commemorated the martyrs of the church  (those who had died for the faith). It has since been expanded to include all who die in the faith.  Continued.....

What is Reformation Day, October 31st? 

On October 31st we celebrate Reformation Day--a day to remember and give thanks for all the beautiful spiritual blessings God has given to us through the work and ministry of his faithful steward, Dr. Martin Luther. Through Luther God called the church back to Scripture Alone, Grace Alone and Faith Alone so we
can know for sure what his will is for our Christian living and giving

His Theses propounded two central beliefs— that the Bible is the only religious authority and that humans may reach salvation only by Grace through their Faith in Christ Jesus and not by their deeds.

RED is the color of the paraments for this day.  This color communicates the motif of strength and power the  Holy Spirit gives in order for God's people to call on the name of Jesus Christ and share that powerful name with others.

October/November 2014 Sermon Themes

From Pastor Haller - You won’t want to miss a single week!  During the months of October and November we will be taking a look at each section of these prayers and, through God’s Word, discovering what they actually mean to our life!

October  “Sermon Prayer” - Lord God, bless Your Word wherever it is proclaimed.  Make it a word of power and peace to convert those not yet Your own and to confirm those who have come to saving faith.  May Your Word pass from the ear to the heart, from the heart to the lip, and from the lip to the life that, as You have promised, Your Word may achieve the purpose for which You send it: through Jesus Christ, my Lord.  Amen

Every week builds off of the previous so it is my prayer that you will not miss one single worship service.  It is also my prayer that you will be in the pew worshipping, hearing God’s Word, together as a family!  (We invite even the little ones to worship because God’s Word will impact the heart and faith of everyone regardless of age!) Continued...

November    -  “Table Prayers” “ - Come Lord Jesus be our guest and let these gifts to us be blest.  Amen.”  Throughout the month of November we will be focusing on this prayer with an addition “and let there be a goodly share on every table everywhere.  Amen.”

As we focus on this theme we will be discovering what each section of this prayer means to our lives and even throughout our lives. Continued....

More Valuable Than Gold....... Our Treasure Chest ...

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
