The Rev. Dave B. Tholstrup
Welcome to St. Peter Lutheran Church, an old church with a bright future. Although we have ministered with families in this area since 1794, we realize there is still much to be done. Our ministry includes worship, Sunday school, women's groups, men's group, youth groups, senior citizen's groups, multi-generational groups, exercise group, Bible study groups, We Care food pantry, helping people physically in our area, and a cooperative ministry with other Lutherans in South Carolina, the United States and around the world.
I've been the pastor of St. Peter now for over ten years and look forward to many more wild and wonderful years of service. My family includes my wife Janice, two married daughters, and one granddaugther. I grew up in central Kansas and came to South Carolina to earn a masters degree from Clemson University. Since graduating from the Lutheran Seminary in Columbia in 1984, I've served in Floyd, Virginia; Cuzco, Peru; Knoxville, Tennessee; Johnstown, Pennsylvania and here. I enjoy gardening, golf, travel and making a positive difference in people's spiritual, emotional and physical lives.
I sincerely hope that you consider making St. Peter your home. Come and join with us in glorifying God in worship, Christian growth, telling the good news, fellowship and service.
Together in Christ's Service,
Rev. David B. Tholstrup
