Life | works

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”

 -Apostle Paul (Philippians 2:13)

Life | Works is what God is doing in each one of us. What we do in Life | Works is grounded in the truth that each person who crosses our path is a masterpiece, created by God; one with whom God is already working, restoring to his or her original design. We seek to be led by the Holy Spirit in walking alongside one another, overcoming barriers and building on God’s blueprints to help one another become all that God designed him or her to be.

“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” -Jesus (John 10:10)


...helping to meet immediate needs.

  • People in our congregation and in our community often have immediate needs with which they need help. Our Relief ministries seek to meet people where they are, understand their immediate needs, and respond to those needs in the most loving way. We utilize St. Peter's resources as well as partner with community resources to help insure that primary needs (housing, food, financial, transportation) are met.

    If you have an immediate need, or want to help, contact Lisa Pein.
