St. Peter Church Council Update


Next Council Meeting on May 12, 2020 at 7:00 pm. Look for details from Allen.


As of May 1, Governor Abbott has allowed limited “phase one” openings at not more than 25% of original capacity. Meanwhile, “shelter in place” remains the preferred option and people over 65 are urged to lessen physical contact.


We will test our capability to manage services within the guidelines by hossting an OUTDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE on May 10 at 10:15 am.


Our leadership team will meet on May 12th to determine procedures and timeline for future physical, interpersonal worship services.  All services will be performed and then posted online to the church's social media pages.

Pastor’s Sermons


Pastor Philip and Amy post the weekly sermons to Facebook with links to YouTube recordings. Search for “St. Peter Lutheran Church Walburg, TX”. For precise instructions to access these sermons, click on ‘Recordings’ under the ‘Services’ tab at the top of this page.


The virus pandemic has changed our daily lives, but we must continue to pray, worship and seek forgiveness. We must offer love and fellowship to family, neighbors and those in need. Although we cannot come to church for the next few weeks, NOW is the time to BE THE CHURCH. Spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Reminder - St. Peter now accepts electronic checks


Many people pay their bills on-line, and would prefer the convenience of electronic banking instead of donating at the collection plate.  For more details about the process, go to the St. Peter website at:
