November is “Pay It Forward” Month
As we live into our baptism, remembering the saints and the faithful departed, we invite every member of this parish from grade school children on up, to commit to an act of unsolicited generosity at least once a week throughout November. Beginning Sunday, November 8, there will be slips of paper and pencils in the pews so you can share your act of generosity, and put that slip into the offering plate. Acts of generosity can be quite small. Click here for a few ideas to get you started. May we try to reflect God’s generosity with how we live our lives, paying such love and kindness forward, just as Jesus and the saints did.

St Peter’s Church School
Children and Youth are part of the life and spirit of St Peter’s Church. On Sundays during the school year, children ages pre-K to teen may attend Church School during the 10:15 Service. The classes help guide them as they learn about the faith and hear stories from the Bible.
Church School Classes:
Upstairs (in nursery classrooms):
- Beulah Land (PK – 1) telling the stories of our faith
- Godly Play (Grades 2 – 4) godly playing with the stories of our faith
Downstairs (in Memorial Room):
- Emmaus (Grades 5 – 9) discovering Jesus in our midst
Family Sundays are held on selected Sundays throughout the year. Instead of attending Church School, children join in the 10:15 service, which features a Children’s Sermon and a simplified Children’s Liturgy.
We ask that all church school families complete this brief registration form.
Adult Bible Studies
St Peters provides several opportunities throughout the year for adults for learn more about the Bible. Click here for our current study.
We have something for everyone. Whether you like to read, sing, knit, garden, build, cook, watch movies or talk, you can find a place to fit in at St Peter’s. Click one of the opportunities below or contact the church office for more information.
