WELCOME TO ST. PETER!
“The people walking in darkness have seen
a great light; on those living in the land

WELCOME TO ST. PETER
St. Peter has been a congregation in Stettler since 1927, and we are affiliated with the North American Lutheran Church (www.thenalc.org). We’ve taken our name from one of Jesus’ most impulsive and blundering disciples — but we find his story quite encouraging. Although Peter made mistakes and said foolish things, Jesus loved him, forgave him, and called Peter to follow him. We’re grateful that God treats us likewise, and it is our desire as a community to grow in our faith, to reflect Jesus Christ more and more, and to live into the reality of his grace, forgiveness, and renewal extended towards us through the death and resurrection of his son Jesus.
That’s a long and ongoing journey for anyone, and if you’re interested in embarking on it with us, we’d be glad to walk with you. Central to this journey is our submission to the Bible as God’s Word for us — the message of God’s redemptive work of his creation (including us!) and culminating with the advent of his Son Jesus Christ into our world, his ministry among us, and his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead.
Embarking on this journey of discovering Jesus and following him has proven to be transformative beyond anything we could have imagined. Just as blundering Peter discovered it before us, and countless others have discovered throughout the last 2000 years, we’d love for you to know it too. Please join us on our journey.
