St. Peter’s celebrates past, looks to future with homecoming
St. Peter’s will hold its annual homecoming celebration Sunday.
Sunday School guest speaker Debra Volkner will begin the special event at 9:30 a.m.
The worship service will be conducted by the Rev. James Fore.
“James,” as he likes to be called, is one of the most dynamic pastors St. Peter’s has been blessed to have.
Immediately following the worship service there will be a covered dish meal.
The metamorphosis of faithful believers in the Rowan County area began in an old Hickory Log Church about 1740 and is considered by many to be the oldest Lutheran Church in North Carolina.
The second church, a frame church, provided a place of worship from 1775-1875.
This church was replaced by a third facility as the hard working farming community grew.
Today the beautiful fourth church stands stoically in the center of corn, soybean and hay fields.
At 9 a.m. today church members are holding “A Day of Visioning.”
The purpose of this event is to commit to the community a place of worship based on Christ’s Divine Love as they look into the future.
In contrast, Sunday’s service will be conducted in the tradition of an old book of worship.
All are welcome as St. Peter’s looks from the past and celebrates a future based on faith.
