The heavens declare the

glory of God

and the sky above proclaims

his handiwork.

Grounding it in Prayer:
A Congregational Prayer Discipline

As we begin our new relationship together, I would like to invite you to join me in an intentional commitment to prayer. In order to frame this commitment, I am encouraging us to set November and December 2020 as our time of prayerful discernment. This kind of prayer can help us to celebrate the past, identify the gifts of our present community, and dream about the future God has planned for us. It can also unify our congregation in a common vision centered on God’s call and direction.

Join our Prayer Process: Beginning November 1, 2020.
Prayer Reminder: Please set your watch or phone alarm for 12:30pm daily. This represents the Great Commandment found in Mark 12:30-31. ..you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. 
 
When your alarm rings each day, please stop for a moment and say a prayer that God would guide St. Peter forward with a clear unified mission. If you are not alone, take this opportunity to share with your friend the reason you are stopping for prayer and invite them to take that moment of prayer with you if they desire. Part of the joy and power is that we will all be praying at the same time wherever we may be!

island ministry

During the Winter months, the population of our island increases from the usual 7,500 to about 50,000 and we are blessed with a church filled with visitors! One of our main emphases in ministry is to provide a “church away from church” for those of you who come to worship with us. It does not matter to us whether you are staying for a few days or several months - when you enter our doors, you are a real part of our family! During your stay on the island, if you need pastoral assistance, please do not hesitate to call our office.
