The heavens declare the

glory of God

and the sky above proclaims

his handiwork.

Psalm 19:1

Located on beautiful Estero Island in the town of Fort Myers Beach,
St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran church has a faithful year-round congregation who considers its ministry to those who vacation or winter on the island as one of its most important ministries.

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.
