Welcome

San Pedro Presbyterian Church serves the larger San Antonio metroplex for the glory of God. We are a spiritual family who strive to make our beautiful campus a spiritual home. Be our guest for in person worship where we explore the wonders of God (RSVP through each worship service link, or call the office and we'll get you connected). Our latest COVID safety updates are HERE.


On March 1st, 2021, we called a new Senior Pastor - Dr Bryan Stamper. He joins Associate Pastor Reverend Paul R. Gaedke and our faithful staff who make space for sacred worship, engaging discipleship opportunities, and meaningful mission events.


Our faith is in God alone, with a priority on the Bible as the standard for faith and life.

150 Coffees in 150 Days

May 5th UPDATE:


"To date I've met with 64 people for coffees and conversation. My hope remains the same: to listen and learn in an effort to build a relationship of trust. Our faith family is sharing hopes, dreams and concerns and I'm taking notes.


A few consistent threads have come up.:


  • When can we return to pre-COVID non restricted gatherings?
  • When will we start up the early service?
  • I'm worried about the number of young families in our church.


I'm still taking notes. Schedule a time at your convenience."



Share your thoughts, dreams, hopes and fears with Dr Stamper over coffee (or tea if you prefer). This is a time for listening and learning while working towards a simple vision: building a place of trust. Call the church office to set up a meeting (calls and zooms are fine, too).

Harvey Juarez - Keeping our property beautiful

Harvey Juarez is somebody you see around church who carries a smile and a friendly demeanor. What folks in the behind-the-scenes workings of our church know is that Harvey plays an integral role in keeping our facilities running smoothly and our maintenance up to date. He is also a great example of somebody who has found their fit in our faith family (the theme of our current message series).


Harvey is the volunteer component of our facilities team. He works closely with staff, elders and key volunteers to maintain a balanced property budget and discern what funds remain in various accounts related to facilities. If you'll recall, our Neal Building was damaged from the February ice storm. While folks think of it as a distant memory, Harvey is the one dealing with the aftermath (insurance company, finances, contractors, etc).


On a personal note, he made me feel welcome when I first arrived. For one of our first meetings Harvey said, "Pastor, I want you to have an office you feel good about for the next twenty years." As my office comes together I am reminded that a beautiful property helps us feel good about our church, but the people make San Pedro feel like family. People like Harvey are a blessing, say "thank you" when you see him.

The Good Life Small Group Series

Are you happy? Are you content with your life or are you always desiring something more? As a Christian, we know that God calls us to be people who are filled with joy, but often our reality feels anything but joyful. Life can be difficult, but there must be a way for us to experience happiness beyond our circumstances. 


The Good Life is a book by Pastor Derwin Gray, in which he outlines how to experience true, godly happiness. One might think that Derwin Gray was living the dream, he grew up on the west side of San Antonio looking for an escape from poverty. He turned to football and made it all the way to the NFL. Yet, even with all his success, there was something missing. He writes, “Trying to find lasting happiness is like chasing your shadow; what starts as childish fun erodes into adult frustration, failure, and disappointment.” Eventually discovers that happiness does not come from worldly achievements, but from Jesus Christ. “Jesus of Nazareth was the happiest person who ever lives. He is the ultimate portrait of the good life. He is the prototype of what humanity was meant to be.” By following the example of Jesus, we discover a happiness, a joy, a blessedness that the world can never offer.


So how do we discover this happiness? Derwin Gray suggests that we follow Jesus’ Happiness Manifesto, the Beatitudes, bullet points of blessedness that start the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-12). Maybe you’ve heard them before, “Blessed are the poor in spirit… Blessed are those who morn… Blessed are the humble…” In true Jesus fashion, he flips our understanding of what happiness is upside down.


This April we will have three adult small groups based on The Good Life, an eight-week series with video and discussion.
