Giving @ St. Peter
Using God's Gifts for God's Purposes is the simplest definition of stewardship. All that we have and are was first created by God. This includes our entire lives, as well as our "time, talents, and treasures," as the saying goes. We express our thanks and praise to God for these gifts by offering them to his service; this includes our financial offerings for the ministry of St. Peter Lutheran Church. We thank you for your generosity.
