Thanks Girl Scouts

Thank you, Troop 4814 for cleaning up around the church and planting beautiful tulips!  It is a privilege to host you at our church.  We look forward to seeing how this new Girl Scout troop grows and serves our community.

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

We had a blessed Holy Week at St. Peter’s!  We are now in The Great 50 Days of Easter!  Each Sunday we will continue to celebrate the Easter feast with special music, readings, and colors.  It’s a fantastic reminder that Christ is alive and with us today.  We hope you’ll join throughout the Easter season as we continue to seek the risen King!

Maundy Thursday 2018

We had a blessed Maundy Thursday!  We gathered together to remember God freeing the Israelites from Egypt, Christ’s last supper with His disciples, and ultimately that God has freed us from sin through the giving of His Son.  It was a beautiful night filled with reflection, laughter, conversation, and quiet.  We look forward to gathering again next year….maybe in the New Jerusalem!

Palm Sunday 2018

This Palm Sunday was an extra special one as our friends from The Salvation Army, Canton joined us for worship.  We had a blessed time processing together, reading the Passion Narrative, receiving Communion, and praying together at the prayer stations.  We look forward to other opportunities to worship together!

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.
