We envision our church welcoming all people, encouraging a journey of faith and serving the world in the name of Christ. We seek to connect people to God and to equip all to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
What type of church is St. Peter’s?
We are a faith community of various ages, backgrounds and outlooks united by our faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many talented and devoted staff, leaders, and other committed servants make up our faith community here in Montpelier. We strive to live-out Jesus’ two great commandments of loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves.
St. Peter’s is a United Methodist Church. Our faith community is built on the teachings of Scripture, the traditions of the early Christian church, and the guidance of our Methodist founder, John Wesley. The United Methodist Church is a global church connected by common beliefs and principles. For additional information about the United Methodist church, visit any of the links below.
A weekly part of our Sunday worship is Holy Communion. As we gather at the Lord’s Table, where Christ’s grace welcomes and embraces all, we celebrate faith’s great mystery: Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again. The Lord’s Supper, by which Holy Communion is also known, is deeply meaningful for our faith community.
