"Rest in peace, Nelson. May the angels carry you into paradise. Amen. You showed us how to refuse to live a life that doesn't include dignity for all. You were a model for peace and justice. And when you came to power, you didn't seek revenge, only reconciliation. You will be missed. Requiescat in pace, Tata, Mdiba"

St. Peter’s has been blessed with people dedicated to be God’s love to this hungry world. In the past five years, we have baptized over 40 babies, children and adults. We have welcomed to the Eucharist people who have received the Bread and Wine with tears, never dreaming that the words of welcome meant them also. And, we blessed marriages – and continue to – of people in love, gay and straight.
LGBTQ teens and adults and those seeking to be married have received counseling and the assurance of their worth and status of them as the beloved of God.
We advocate our government for justice concerning all issues that affect the human family, including the right to marry, and to have a non native born spouse remain in this country.
Our restrooms are gender neutral; all of our Sunday School supplies show families in all the wonderful ways God has called us in our loving relationships.
St Peter’s is a safe and welcoming place for all – and we need your help to continue the work and the ministry that is so important for the furtherance of God’s love for all in Jesus Christ, and a fierce negation of everyone and everything that calls any of God’s children less than, or not worthy of God’s love.
St Peter's is the only Lutheran church north of the George Washington Bridge that has inclusive, welcoming worship in a safe and supportive space; where truly all are welcome to be a part of this amazing ministry that God continues to bless with growth.
We need your support to continue our work. Please prayerfully consider giving to St. Peter’s.
Thank you, and God bless you.
