I'm New to St. Peter's

Visiting a new church for the first time can be an intimidating experience. At St. Peter's, we want your visit to be spiritually uplifting and stress free. Keep reading to learn more about what to expect at our services.

When Are Your Services?

We worship every weekend on Saturday evening at 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. and 10:05 a.m. During the school year, we also have a Sunday morning Bible Study between services at 8:45 a.m. We broadcast our 10:05 service live online {hyperlink to workship page} and on the radio over WDOR 93.9 FM. Local Cable Charter Chanel 96 or 989 broadcasts our weekly service on Wednesdays at 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM and Sundays at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. You can access past services on the internet any time on our worship page.

Where Are You Located?

We are located in downtown Sturgeon Bay at 108 Maple Street near the Michigan and Oregon Street bridges.

What Are Your Services Like?

Our services are centered entirely on proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ from beginning to end. Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, God has declared the whole world "not-guilty" of sin, in another word: forgiven! Therefore in our worship services we strive to stay focused on Christ and the forgiveness of sins in all we sing, say and do.

On a Sunday morning we follow a worship format called a liturgy. Our liturgies are largely inherited from previous generations of Christians. They are the product of centuries of experience of what serves the Christian faith well. They are designed to keep us focused on the life and work of Jesus Christ. They repeat many of the important teachings of the Bible. They express the worshipers' unity by the things they sing, pray, say, do and hear together. They help to promote reverence and sincerity.


What Do You Preach About?

God has revealed to us everything He wants us to know in the Bible. So our preaching strives to present and explain portions of the Bible making it relevant to us today. We follow a special calendar called the "Church Year" which is a schedule of Bible readings for each Sunday. The Church Year follows the events in the life and ministry of Jesus on earth. (For example, at Christmas we observe His birth.) Our goal is not merely to speak on topics or offer self-help advice, rather we strive to show the hearer their need for Jesus and how Jesus fulfills that need–especially the need for salvation. Learn more about what we believe and preach.


Where Should I Go When I Arrive?

We have parking lots across Maple Street from the main entrance or from West Larch Street by the school entrance, and you may park in either lot for worship. From the main entrance, come up the steps into church and through the main doors into the rear of the sanctuary. From the school entrance, come up the steps and down the hall to the left thorough the door at the front of the sanctuary. There are bulletins located at all of these entrances when you arrive for worship. If the doors to the sanctuary are closed when you arrive, come right in!


Are Children Welcome?

Yes! Jesus said "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them." If your child becomes restless during the service, you are welcome to make use of the parents' room located at the rear of the sanctuary.


Can I Attend Communion?

We practice "member" communion, also called "close" communion. If you are a guest and are not yet a member of our fellowship/congregation, we invite you to learn more about us before joining us at the communion table. To learn more about our faith and fellowship, speak with either pastor.


What About the Offering?

Members of St. Peter's are committed to supporting the work of St. Peter's Lutheran Church and School, and voluntarily contribute to this ministry as the apostle Paul encouraged "Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Corinthians 9:7). Visitors and non-members are not expected to contribute.
