Plans for a second Fitzgerald Methodist Church was announced by Mr. Ben Mills, Jr., chairman of the Official Board at Central Methodist and the Rev. Ned Steele, pastor, in May 1966. Groundwork began when Rev. F. J. Beverly, director of the Church Extension for the South Georgia Conference, made a survey in the early part of 1966. The Valdosta District Committee on Church Location gave permission to begin a new church. The first congregational meeting was held on May 12, 1966, with Rev. F. J. Beverly presiding. Plans were announced to purchase a three quarter-block site at Merrimac and West Sultana Drive. The property included a home which was used as a parsonage. Rev. J. F. Beverly conducted the first worship service on Sunday, May 15, 1966, in the Mobile Methodist Chapel on the church property. Rev. Zephoe Belcher, Jr. was assigned in June 1966, and the first revival was held in August 1966, with Rev. Belcher preaching. The Constituting church conference was held on September 25, 1966, with the District Superintendent, Dr. Albert Trulock, present and forty-eight members. Rev. Dr. Trulock suggested the name and those present voted to name it St. Peter's. The first building was consecrated on October 1, 1967. The education building was constructed out of the Mystic Methodist Church and the sanctuary is the Providence Methodist Church. These buildings were moved in and renovated in 1968.
