reaching out in service

Jesus urged his followers to respond to the needs of those around them. One modern writer describes God's kingdom, which Jesus proclaimed, as a world in which everyone has "enough to eat, a decent place to live and reasonable freedom from fear and constant sorrow."

  • community meal

    Along with other Quad-City churches, St. Peter's helps provide a full dinner served six nights a week free of charge to anyone who is hungry and can get to the meal site in time to eat. We prepare and serve a basic meal of a hot main dish, salad, bread and butter, milk and lemonade, and assorted desserts.

  • Bettendorf carelink

    St. Peter's together with other Bettendorf churches, supports the Bettendorf CareLink Program which provides social work services (primarily referral) and financial help to people who come to our doors or call asking for assistance.

  • united thank offering

    Do you have a mug or a jar or a box where loose change gathers on your desk or dresser? Because “Our Change Changes Lives,” St. Peter’s will welcome your pennies, dimes and nickels as part of the United Thank Offering collection. This ministry of the Episcopal Church, commonly known as UTO, was begun in 1889 and continues its work of outreach in the US and around the world. UTO supports projects that target two identified marks of mission: (1) to respond to human need by loving service, and (2) to seek to transform unjust structures of society.” And, importantly, 100% of your donation goes directly to serve UTO’s worthy projects because a generous endowment covers administrative expenses. Parishes in Iowa have received UTO grants for a variety of projects. Please pick up a UTO box or envelope to help make good on the promise that “Our Change Changes Lives.” Thank you!
