For the Genealogists – What Happened to Another St. Peter’s Church?

As webmaster, I have received questions regarding historical records as people are trying to do genealogy searches. 

We are St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church,  located in Eastpointe, Michigan  and still very much alive and active in the community.

Although we are a “St. Peter’s” Lutheran church, there was another "St. Peter's" Lutheran church  in the same general area with a very similar name from the mid 1840's until 1961...... CONTINUED CLICK HERE

New Church Begins with Advent - 1st Sunday 11/30/14

Unlike a 12 month calendar which starts January 1st, the Church Year starts with the first Sunday in Advent. Instead of months we have “seasons” which are based on a number of  days or weeks from an event.  Advent is the four Sundays before Christmas.

The Season of Advent is a preparatory time of waiting & watching, communicating the message of hope;  where Jesus' earthly life began, in the Old Testament prophecies of his incarnation. A sacred sequence of observances & celebrations that help us experience the fullness of our faith.

During this season, we will have different services on Sunday and Wednesday.  PLEASE PLAN ON ATTENDING BOTH SUNDAY AND WEDNESDAY (if possible) in this season of preparation.

This is also Pastor Haller's last Sunday and last sermon as our Pastor. His last service will be this Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve.

SERMON: And Let There be a Goodly Share on Every Table Everywhere (Matthew 25:31-46) / PREACHER:  Pastor Mark Haller (Sermon posted)

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.  Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.   CONTINUED............  CLICK HERE or go to CHURCH, SERMONS

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


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
