God's Word and Sacraments. With thankful hearts we seek:

witnessing to the Good News of Jesus Christ;


To Minister

 to the physical and spiritual needs of our community,

the nation, and the peoples of the world as God gives us strength and purpose



The Christian symbol for Saint Peter is the upside-down cross and crossed keys. Tradition has it that Peter and the Apostle Paul suffered martyrdom on the same day, June 29, in the year 67, and that Peter was crucified upside down.


“You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God,” was Peter’s confession of faith, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus responded to Peter, “You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”  (Matthew 16:16-20)


Prayer:  Almighty God, you inspired Simon Peter to confess Jesus as the Messiah and Son of the living God. Keep your Church firm on the rock of this faith, that in unity and peace it may proclaim one truth and follow one Lord, your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
