St. Peter's United Methodist Church is hosting a groundbreaking ceremony 9 a.m. June 20 for a new west campus at 4700 FM 1463, Fulshear, according to Lead Pastor Rev. Pat Sparks and to Alex Zeisig, pastor to the west campus.

The approximately 11-acre property will house a roughly 1,200 square-foot building that will include a worship space for 300 people, as well as Sunday school classrooms, Zeisig said. Construction is expected to be completed in February 2021.


The new campus will include Sunday morning worship as well as student and children’s ministries, Zeisig said. The expansion will help the church connect with the many people who are expected to move to the Fulshear and West Katy area, Sparks said.

“This expansion will help us better connect the world with God’s love,” Sparks said.

St. Peter’s main campus is located at 20775 Kingsland Blvd., Katy. Existing services for the west campus are held at Cinco Ranch High School, 23440 Cinco Ranch Blvd., Katy, every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. 281-492-8031 (Kingsland Boulevard location). www.stpkaty.org
