Prayer Vigil to be held Friday April 19th at St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Preston. "A vigil for our city's lost loved ones" Friday 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. A time to pray, gather, encourage, and support each other in love as we remember those who have died in our city. Everyone is welcome to drop in. 810 King St. East, Cambridge.
Statement from The Lutheran World Federation:
Tonight we grieve over invaluable loss as the Notre Dame cathedral burns. We pray for all for whom Notre Dame is and represents a spiritual home.
We find comfort in the words of Isaiah 40:31
“Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”
Join Us On The Journey From Palm/Passion Sunday To Easter.
We Welcome All!
“Realizing a healthier world through Jesus.” We at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Cambridge strive to live into our Vision Statement in all we do as a congregation centrally located in the Preston area of Cambridge.
Regardless of your age, race, gender, economic status, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity, you are warmly invited to join us each week as we gather to be strengthened and nurtured through Word and Sacrament.
In response to the gospel’s call to ‘go into all the world’ we seek to show God’s love to those outside our doors through our outreach efforts. We provide warm hats, mittens, and scarves to anyone in our community who might need a little warmth in the winter. The public is welcome to harvest any fresh vegetables they might need from our Jesus Garden on the front lawn with surplus produce being donated to the Cambridge Self-Help Foodbank. We work in partnership with local support groups such as Home Hospice Association, Waterloo Region, and several 12-Step Groups. In addition to meeting the needs of existing members through confirmation classes, Sunday School, youth group, weekly bible study, monthly Adult Learning opportunities, and a monthly book discussion group, we at St. Peter’s constantly strive to be of support to our local community either through new initiatives or by supporting existing programmes
If outreach to the wider community and taking advantage of spiritual growth opportunities would encourage your personal faith-journey, you are encouraged to drop in.
The Worship Service begins at 10:00 AM with Sunday School for all ages following the service.
We welcome all!
