As Christians rooted in the love of Christ, the indispensable complement to our worship of the living God is our service in the world in the Name of Jesus. Questions about Outreach activities can be sent to email@example.com.
During the Advent and Christmas holiday season, we encourage parishoners to support one of our key ministries by giving funds to them in our Alternative Christmas. Parishoners are invited to stop in at the Parish Office to pick up a gift card to share this gift to a ministry area with someone instead of purchasing a tangible gift.
We also enjoy providing Christmas gifts to more than 70 adults and children through our Gifting Trees. The gift deadline was December 11, 2020. Thank you to all who supported this effort.
Additionally, we are collecting new and gently used coats for distribution by our food ministry at the CYWA in Coatesville on Dec. 23, 2020. Coats should be dropped off in the morning at the Parish House.
The Outreach Commission responds to our baptismal covenant to love our neighbor as ourselves by serving the needs of various communities beyond SPGV through three primary actions:
- Determining the fit between communities’ needs and SPGV’s resources (time, talent, treasure)
- Organizing and executing our response
- Communicating to parishioners, listening to their ideas and feedback, and engaging them in Outreach activities
We invite you to learn more about our six key ministries in the ministries section of the website. We are actively involved in service related to poverty, health, housing and education.
 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Matthew 22:36-40 King James Version –
The life of the Body of Christ is a constant dynamic interplay between praise and adoration of God in worship—week after week—and participating in God’s mission in the world, after being fed by Christ’s Body and Blood in the Eucharist. At St. Peter’s, we take seriously God’s call to see Christ’s face in all whom we meet, for as the Gospels tell us, whenever we feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty, we do so to Christ himself (Matthew 25:35-40). We invite you to join us in service in Christ’s Name.
