St. Peter’s is a praying church—founded on prayer. Our Prayer Ministry is growing, and we invite you to join us. In addition to the prayers of all small groups, Bible Studies, meetings, and gatherings, the following are teams who use their gift of prayer for specific requests:

  • Praying Hands meets Wednesday at 8:00 AM in Room B.
  • Our At-Home Prayer Team is reached with requests via E-Mail.
  • Sunday morning Prayer Partners are available for personal, confidential requests after each service.

Should you be led to use your gift of prayer with us, please contact the church office at 714-846-6641 or info@stpetershb.org.

On the Patio This Sunday

Come on Board to Lend a Hand through S.H.I.P.

S.H.I.P. (Self-Help Interfaith Program) is designed to assist homeless people who work and need a little help getting back on their feet by providing temporary housing, food, and counseling. Their facility had a fire recently and has become uninhabitable. As they rebuild, local churches have been coming alongside to help by offering space for beds and food for five participants for short 2-week periods.

This program provides the following:

·      Transitional housing

Participants in this program also benefit from the following:

·      Food

·      Hygiene

·      Counseling

·      Employment search

·      Budgeting

To be eligible as a guest:

·      Must be employable and remain drug and alcohol-free.

·      Must be capable of completing daily job search requirements, attending weekly counseling sessions in goal setting, budgeting, and preparing regular budgets throughout the program, and conforming to mandatory curfews and other rules designed to ensure safety and cooperation aboard the SHIP.

·      Must not have a criminal record of violence, weapons, or abuse of minors

·      Must not be disabled.

Guests must be substance-free for at least 30 days prior to admission into the SHIP. Guests are required to have employment after 60 days in order to remain in the program. Guests are carefully screened.

St. Peter’s is stepping forward to lend a hand by providing shelter in our Boathouse from January 28 - February 11. This requires many willing volunteers. We will need Chaperones who are on campus when the participants are here. Men are needed nightly from 5:45 p.m. -7:00 a.m. the following day to have dinner and bunk with them. Men and women are needed Saturdays and Sundays for a 7:00 a.m.-noon shift and a noon to 5:45 p.m. shift.

We need many food providers. The evening meal should be ready to serve at 6:30 p.m. The provider/providers are invited to stay and fellowship with them at dinner if possible. We will also need to provide “grab and go” type foods for breakfast and lunches, which the participants can put together independently.

Help us keep S.H.I.P. afloat and sign up to volunteer at our table on the patio this Sunday, or e-mail your name and phone number to outreach@stpetershb.org for more information and to find out where you can serve.
