Your Support for Valley Outreach

is STILL Needed 

Many of Valley Outreach's programs continue to be modified because of the pandemic but the distribution of food (and other types of assistance where they can be offered) is going on. Food insecurity, in particular, has continued as recovery for job-holders and the economy has slowed. 

St. Peter's supports the work and programs of Valley Outreach, based in Stillwater, MN, as it serves individuals and families in need throughout our area. Please use the button below to check out the VO website for the latest updates on their needs and services.

And please continue to give whatever you can to support their efforts. Thanks.

Our Votes this November -

and the Aftermath 

We're in the midst of much turmoil and what most everyone sees as a crucial election. As people of faith, we know love of neighbor means we need to take seriously our respon-sibility to care for our neighbor and to elect leaders who will do the same. Our faith informs our vote. 

As followers of Jesus - called our Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace - we are called to a high standard of en-gagement and interaction with our fellow citizens of the United States. To do that when the atmosphere is hot and our exchanges with others can get heated can be difficult.

The United Church of Christ has prepared a short resource titled, "Being a Civil Voice in Uncivil Times". (Use the button below to view and read it.) It can be a valuable resource as you try to calmly engage in conversations with others about election results in the days ahead.

Choosing the leaders who will take us into the future in an all-citizen affair. Let your faith and Christian ethics guide both your thinking and your behavior in days ahead - whatever the outcomes are.     

CROP Walk 2020

A small group of CROP Walkers from St. Peter's enjoyed a perfect fall afternoon walk along the Brown's Creek Trail to raise money for Church World Service (CWS) food and development programs in the U.S. and around the world. 


Donations from supporters were gathered and will be divided between CWS and Valley Outreach, our area food and supportive services organization. Thanks to all those who shared some of their financial bounty so others would enjoy food enough to meet their daily needs.


Members of St. Peter's also cover trash clean-up for a portion of the Trail and completed another year of Trail Clean-up in October as they walked. So it was a good day that helped hungry people and the natural environment.
