For Pastoral Care Emergencies: 912.712.0255
Clergy Visits to the Sick
Please let one of our priests know if you are in the hospital or going to be in the hospital or are ill at home and would like a visit. Hunt+ and Kelly+ are available by appointment, at 912.598.7242.
Available Pastoral Care Conversation
Father Don Hands is available for confidential pastoral care conversations at St. Peter's, on Wednesday mornings from 9 - 11:45, in a Parish Office. These pastoral conversations are not psychotherapy or treatment but a means to offer some direction for those experiencing difficulties or problems in living. Usually a few meetings will suffice to provide a direction.
Father Don Hands has provided pastoral care for over 40 years and has a certificate in Mental Health and Aging from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Do you have a family member, friend or know of someone who is sick and would welcome a hand-crafted prayer shawl blessed by prayers of clergy and congregation during a Eucharist service? Please let the office know, at 912.598.7242.
Sending of Eucharistic Visitors
Did you know that there's a group of parishioners who regularly take communion to those in the congregation who are sick or otherwise unable to get to church?
It's an important part of our pastoral care ministries and they're going on behalf of all of us. So let's send them with our prayers. Each Sunday, near the end of worship, we will send our Eucharistic Visitors out "bearing holy gifts for holy people."
St. Peter's Prayer Ministry: How to Ask for Prayers
Our Prayer Guild, a long-standing group of parishioners who pray without ceasing for others, is always available for your prayer requests. Ask for prayers for yourself or others by submitting this simple form.
These form requests are received by both Shirley Forssell, Prayer Ministry Leader, and Clergy.

The Flower Guild & Deliverers of Sunday Bouquets Work in Tandem
The altar flowers take on new life each week, after the 10 am service ends at St. Peter's. The Flower Guild member who has arranged the week's flowers works again in the sacristy, disassembling the arrangement. She then creates several smaller bundles of flowers and greens that are taken by dedicated members to other parishioners unable to join us for services.
St. Peter's Greeting Card Ministry
The goal is for every parishioner to receive cards for birthdays and wedding anniversaries. Other occasions may be honored as well such as sympathy, illness and 1st year anniversaries of a loved one's death.
