St. Petri Lutheran Church is a member of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ. (LCMC)
The Scandinavians who left the shores of Norway did not forget their spiritual needs. They gathered
in homes to share God's word and to support each other in this new land. On December 17, 1887,
at the home of Endre Engebretson, St. Petri Lutheran Church was founded. Three years later the decision was made to build a church building on the present site, south of Brandon.
In these 127 years of mission and outreach, the members of St. Petri have given of themselves and their means so that the work of the church might continue. Despite hardships, these faithful few have brought forth fruits worthy of their labor out of love for the Lord Jesus Christ. Mission and outreach have always been a driving force for the congregation, giving it meaning and purpose. Social events like the Women's Salad Luncheon, the Pie and Ice Cream Social and the Advent Hanging of the Greens provide for camaraderie and fellowship.
There is a special bond among the members of St. Petri who break bread together. Only eight pastors have served St. Petri in its entire history. St. Petri is a warm, loving congregation; a place to laugh together, cry together, and mature in Christian faith. Currently, we have Sunday morning worship at 10:30 A.M. with Holy Communion the first and third Sundays of the month. Sunday School is at 9:30 A.M. each Sunday.
Upholding God's divinely inspired Word, St. Petri invites you to come, experience the joy of our Lord as we gather in Christ's name. Those in search of the grace and promise of Christ - unite to worship in a welcoming, friendly environment, proclaiming Christ's love for all!
