Welcome back to Worship!
Over the last several months, Christians have been faced with the challenge of living as the body of Christ despite the need to carefully protect one another from Covid. Opening & closing public services, limiting the numbers of attendance, & health restrictions have helped during our public health crisis, but they have also come at the cost of limiting our ability to live in fellowship, and to learn & grow together. Biblically, there is no such thing as an “individual” Christian — we are branches grafted into a vine (John 15) and that means that we are connected to one another as we are connected to Jesus. We can’t go it alone, but need one another. And the church community needs you too!
We continue to practice safe measures in our worship gatherings (masking, social distancing, hand sanitizing), and are broadcasting our worship services online for those not comfortable attending. But I would encourage everyone to consider coming back to worship in person — to encourage one another in our lives of faith, to grow in our walk with Jesus, and to worship our great Lord and God together! The doors are open every Sunday at 10:30am, and throughout the week!
“I was glad when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’” —Psalm 122:1
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.
St. Peter is a church family committed to the authority of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In keeping with the Lutheran Confessions, we believe all doctrines should and must be judged by the teaching of Scripture…
Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. We confess Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death…
