We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, and we respect and honor with gratitude the land itself, the legacy of the ancestors, and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

CERVE connects us with emergency outreach in Caroline County

St Peter’s has been a long-time participant in CERVE, which stands for Caroline Emergency Relief through Volunteer efforts.  Fred Pannell served as the Treasurer of CERVE for many years.  Boyd Wisdom served as our representative until Elizabeth Heimbach took that job.  St Peter’s representation will continue as various people attend the upcoming meetings.  Deputy Trey Clifton represented us in March.  Catherine Hicks attended in April.  The following people have signed up for the next several months.  

May 28—Johnny Davis
June 25—Elizabeth Heimbach
July 23—Linda Upshaw
September 14—Andrea Pogue
October 22—Larry Saylor

Consider representing St Peter’s and signing up for a meeting.  This is a great place to find out how St Peter’s, with other churches, can help to meet various needs in the county.   Find out about how the Department of Social Services, the Sheriff’s Department, the churches and other organizations in the county come together to meet emergency needs by providing emergency lodging and fuel assistance, and also help with utilities, rent, and prescription medicine
