History of St. Peter Lutheran Church
     of Fair Haven, Michigan

Nearly 150 years ago, a group of German-American Farmers came together to form a Christian Congregation named St. Peter's Lutheran Church. They did this so that the saving Gospel might be preached and taught among them and passed on to future generations. 

We thank God for our years of unity and grace as we have shared the Word and Sacraments in the fellowship of our Congregation! 


Growth Continues

1941 - 1979

The Ladies Aid Society sponsored dinners, bake sales, and bazaars to aid in the growth of the church including:
