Invitation to Holy Week

Fr. Robbie invites you to join St. Peter’s during Holy Week beginning next Sunday, March 25th with Palm Sunday. What is Holy Week? Holy Week is a time to remember Christ’s final week on earth taking us through his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, His last supper, death on the cross, and finally His victorious resurrection.

Check out our FB events for more information about each opportunity during Holy Week or visit our Journey to Easter page.

Girl Scout Sunday

Today is Girl Scout Sunday!  Today kicks off Girl Scout Week –  a tradition of highlighting what it means to be a Girl Scout.  St. Peter’s recently began hosting Canton’s newest troop biweekly on Wednesday nights.  Today we were honored to welcome local Girl Scouts to worship!  It’s been a fantastic partnership and we look forward to many more years working together with the Girl Scouts to encourage girls in our community.

Bishop’s Visit 2018

This past Sunday, Bishop Morales joined us for Holy Eucharist.  During worship, Bp. Morales encouraged us to continue to be rooted, compassionate, and missional in our community.  After his sermon, Bp. Morales marked the candidate for baptism with the sign of the cross and Fr. Rob baptized him at the font.  Following the baptism, Bp. Morales confirmed the candidates for confirmation sealing their belief and trust in Christ.  It was a beautiful day welcoming the Bishop and supporting our newest members in their decision of faith.

Lego Blessings

This past Friday St. Peter’s received a HUGE donation to the Canton Lego Builders Club!  Recently, Canton Lego Builders Club has partnered with The Salvation Army, Canton to reach out to children in our area.  Through this partnership The Salvation Army has given Canton LBC $20,000 worth of legos to use for various clubs and events.  Through this donation, we are able to not only supply Canton Lego Builders Club, but also supply new Lego Builders Club with what they need to begin.  We are so excited to not only partner with The Salvation Army, Canton, but also other churches in our community.

This summer The Salvation Army, Canton will offer Lego Builders Club at their summer programs and the Canton Family YMCA has asked Canton Lego Builders Club to offer a club for their summer program as well.  In addition to Westview Lego Builders Club, we are partnering with other churches to offer up to three additional lego clubs after school in all corners of Canton.

We are overwhelmed with God’s goodness through this ministry.  God is moving us to be missional and providing the volunteers needed to truly reach every man, woman, and child with the good news of His love.

If you would like to hear more about Canton Lego Builders Club or find out how to start a lego club, please feel free to contact Fr. Rob.

Journey to Easter

Lent is in full swing at St. Peter’s.  As we pray, fast, and give through the season, we are looking ahead to victory in Christ’s resurrection.  During these 40 days we invite you to join us as we pray for community, collect donations for a local resource center – Love, Inc; and personally fast to grow closer to God.

Before the 40 days of Lent are over we will enter into Holy Week.  What is Holy Week?  A time to remember Christ’s last week before His glorious resurrection.  During Holy Week, we will have several opportunities to gather together and live into the various parts that the lead to the triumphant resurrection of Christ.  Living into Holy Week brings a sense of awe and victory to Easter Sunday.  We hope you’ll join us…

Feel free to check out more about Lent and Holy Week at St. Peter’s here.

Canton Lego Builders Club Expands

Canton Lego Builders Club is expanding to provide building opportunities throughout the Canton area.  Last week we had the privilege to kick off Westview Lego Builders Club at Westview Elementary!  Students K-4th grade enjoyed a time of “free building” with volunteers and parents.  The Westview Cafeteria was buzzing with 70 students plus parents and volunteers building various creations.  It was a fantastic kick off!

Canton Lego Builders Club is excited to partner with other churches to sponsor additional lego clubs throughout Canton!  We’ll post more once details are finalized!  If your church or organization would like to sponsor a lego club, please contact Fr. Rob for more information.

Winter Lego Day Camp 2018

Today we held out first Winter Lego Day Camp!  It was a chilly spin on our Summer Lego Day Camp.  Builders played games, rescued frozen Lego guys, built unique creations, and had tasty snacks.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered and participated today!  We look forward to seeing everyone for Lego Builders Club on February 10th!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve and First Sunday of Christmas at St. Peter’s!  Our youth and children worked together to perform a live nativity during the song “Away in a Manger” on Christmas Eve.  This past Sunday the celebration continued at our worship service where Fr. Rob reminded us all that Jesus is the true light for all the world.


As we look to the new year, we count the blessings 2017 brought not only to our church, but our community.  We give thanks for all God has done, is doing, and will do.  Check out our Facebook page for photos of all the blessings we’ve seen this past year.

The Latest Happenings

We’ve been busy at St. Peter’s the past few weeks reaching out to our community here in Canton.  Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening at St. Peter’s…..


Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper

On November 11th, we had the privilege to serve our local veterans at our Annual Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper.  The evening included a raffle, 50/50 Drawing, and delicious soups and chili.  All the proceeds from the 50/50 drawing were given to  the family of Sgt. Douglas Riney while all other proceeds were given to the Canton VFW to help our local veterans in need.  This year we were blessed to have a large portion of the food donated by Canton Hy-Vee and several raffle items were donated by WBYS, Black Maple, and American Grille.  Volunteers from the local Girl Scouts, St. Peter’s, and other community members helped to make the event possible.  It was a fantastic night to see our community rally together to serve those who served our country.



Lego Builders Club Rings Bells

Canton Lego Builders Club served our community by ringing bells for the Canton Salvation Army at Farm King.  It was a great way to put what we have learned at LBC into practice.  The Salvation Army did a volunteer highlight of the builders ringing which helped the kids see the importance of what they were doing.


St. Nicholas Day Celebration

On December 6th, we had our Annual St. Nicholas Day Celebration.  The evening included a special visit from St. Nicholas who told us stories about his work and Christmas traditions, fun St. Nicholas inspired games like a penny toss, and crafts.  The night was filled with joy as kids ran from  station to station and enjoyed delicious treats.
