St. Peter's Foundation
Even a mustard seed becomes a huge shrub
when faith in God is the power behind it.
The St. Peter's Anglican Church Foundation was established to ensure the continuous and lasting growth of our church. Generations may pass, but St. Peter's mission will remain. Through a variety of methods and opportunities, parishioners can demonstrate the importance of St. Peter's in their own lives by contributing to the Foundation. The Foundation as a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization, is set up to receive gifts of all kinds, including cash, stock, or real estate. The easiest way to give is to remember St. Peter's in your will.
Gifts can be designated for specific ministries, and the Foundation will handle all resources with the utmost care. The Foundation's goal is to enhance and protect the legacy of our church and to support the life of a church that has meant so much to each parishioner.
For a consultation on the best way you can give, please feel free to contact: Bruce Culpepper at (850) 566-1620.
