This is a great time for members and friends of St. Peter's to hang out with their church family virtually, to catch up with the pastors and church leaders, and to get excited for the capital projects, the upcoming reopening worship in the sanctuary, and our annual celebration of generosity: Matching Gift Sunday.

Matching Gift Sunday and Capital Campaign

On Matching Gift Sunday, gifts of $50 or more will be matched up to $100,000.

Help Support the Beautiful Church Gardens

The United Methodist Women are now taking orders for flowers to be placed in the gardens surrounding the church. The flowers will be used throughout the summer and fall to beautify the church gardens!

All in-person meetings at St. Peter's UMC have been cancelled and the building will be closed to the public until further notice.

We continue to monitor the news and we are meeting and talking as staff and leaders to see what we can do to be of assistance to our community during this time. This is a time that brings much stress and concern. We understand that there are so many more questions than there are answers. Yet, we will continue to do what we can to provide answers and resources to you in the most efficient ways that we can.

The biblical Queen Esther was challenged to act with these words from her mentor: You have been placed here “For such a time as this.” Now, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, with a century and a half of Christian witness in Ocean City, continues to move ahead. This is the time to act bold in faith, wide in hope, and deep in love, as we shape our future together.

College-bound Students

Apply for the Asbury Scholarship

Students attending college or graduate school in September 2020, can apply for an Asbury Scholarship Award. Members and friends of St. Peter's have donated funds to provide this financial assistance. 

As a church family, we celebrate our students future goals and wish God's continued blessings upon them.  Scholarships are for members of St. Peter's UMC and Macedonia UMC.
