  • THANKSGIVING EVE SERVICE

    This year St. Peter’s will be hosting the Manheim Township Ministerium Thanksgiving Eve service on Wednesday, November 27th at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. There is a rich history of having this service at St. Peter’s and sharing leadership roles with pastors, priests, and deacons from other churches in the area. It is a time where our community can gather together in a new and different way. We will be collecting an offering during the service which will go to the Manheim Township Reduced and Free Lunch program. Come worship, engage in contemplation and prayers of Thanksgiving to our God who provides all things, and give a gift that ensures a good meal goes to one of our neighborhood kids.
