MINISTRIES OF BENEVOLENCE

We believe that the ministry of the church is entrusted to all of our members.

At St. Peter’s, the personal engagement of individuals and families in ministry is an important part of who we are.  There are a variety of gifts and a variety of services the church offers as we seek to bring our words and our deeds together.

Benevolence, kindness and a joyful commitment to justice, peace and a healing of wounds are at the heart of who we seek to be about.  In the past year (2015) the members of St. Peter’s offered summer camp scholarships and student scholarships to the young.
    
Older members engaged in quilting projects (including the creation of fifty-six quilts for the Rawhide home for needy youth. More than $50,000 was devoted to United Church of Christ ministries and other expressions of faith such as support for Syrian refugees,
Lakeland College, Hope House, Salvatorian Mission, Animal Shelter Rescue, Habitat for Humanity, Safe Harbor and other projects as we sought to reflect something of the love of God for us all.
