• Welcome to St. Peter Lutheran Church and School!

    St. Peter Lutheran Church and School.  was founded by German farmers who wanted to raise their children in their culture and traditions on the great plains of Illinois. In 1847 they started St. Peter Lutheran Church and School.  The school continues to be a strong asset in a thriving community that has changed from one based on farming, to one focused on family-businesses.

    The mission of St. Peter Lutheran School Ministry Team is to guide and support the administration and staff of St. Peter Lutheran School to provide a Christ centered education with high academic standards that will develop the whole child to become a contributing Christian citizen in God’s world. St. Peter Lutheran School’s Ministry Team is made up of a diverse group of parents that have children in various grades.  We meet monthly to discuss issues relating to the school such as the budget and policy review. When the need arises we assist the principal with the interview process of prospective teachers. We also provide feedback on staff and school activities. Part of our responsibility is to bring up issues that we feel need to be addressed in the school and we are open to hear any issues that you may have noticed. However, specific issues regarding an individual student, should be taken to the teacher first and after that to Principal Zielke.

    The Ministry Team has a passion for this school and the children’s education.  We want it to be the very best it can be. To that end, we are here for you.  If you have an issue that you feel needs to be addressed, please feel free to contact us at schoolminstryteam@stpeterlcms.org.
