Our help funds monthly pension supplements, quarterly health premium supplements, emergency grants and Christmas thank-you gift checks.
For those that are curious about our new logo...The symbol has several things that we feel are important to St. Peters. First, the symbol itself is a P...for Peter. There is a black cross in the middle. The surrounding colors represent our beautiful stained glass windows.

Pastor Bev used to meet with church members on Wednesday mornings at Arabicas in downtown Amherst. Even though Pastor Bev is no longer participating in body, she still is in spirit! Some members are carrying on the tradition and still meet every Wednesday morning to chat and enjoy the fellowship. This group of our church members have begun referring to this weekly fellowship as church chat. They would like to invite any member interested to please join them at 9:30AM on Wednesdays!
