“Sharing God's Love, Serving The Community"

Our Story

Our Story


St. Peter’s Lutheran Church has been doing ministry in Huntington Station since 1908. At that time the town was known as Fairground, after the fairgrounds and racetrack located there.  When the coming railroad was denied permission to lay tracks through Huntington Village, the LIRR was forced to build the “Huntington Station” 2 miles to the south with a connecting trolly line to the village.

St. Peter’s first location was space rented in a small Presbyterian chapel on NY avenue. As the first and only LCMS Lutheran Church in the area, our founding membership grew quickly. Having outgrown our rented space, we purchased land on Fairgrounds Ave and in 1912, dedicated our first church building.

We continued to grow and put on an addition in 1924. Through social events, outreach to the community and a popular minister, we had become a viable and valued church and after the end of WWII our little white church was again bursting at the seams. In 1951 we purchased another plot of land farther south on Ogden Court and by 1955 we were dedicating our new “Christian Education Building”.

Phase II came in 1969 when we completed a large, connecting sanctuary complete with a bell tower, fabulous pipe organ and magnificent stained glass window proclaiming Christ as “The light of the World”.

Today, as in our founding years, our priority remains to spread that light by proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and by serving the hungry and homeless of our community and beyond.

In 1977 we joined with other Lutheran churches to form the AELC then together with other church bodies to form the more inclusive ELCA, allowing more women equality and enabling us to work with other non- Lutheran Churches in the area.

What We Believe

St. Peter’s is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the largest Lutheran denomination in the United States.

The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.  A summary of the principle teachings of the ELCA can be found here.

The ELCA is committed to fostering unity among the children of God for the sake of the world. The ELCA Ecumenical and Inter- Religious Relations team is responsible for encouraging the activity of ecumenical and inter-religious life in this church and enhancing the public commitments of this church in Lutheran, ecumenical and interfaith circles.  For more information, click here.
