Friday, November 17, 7:00-9:00pm – Fun & Games Night
Join us for an evening of fun for the whole family! Many of the best games are more fun with a large group, so we’re providing a opportunity for people to get together and play their favorite games! We’ll have a wide selection of board games on hand, and you are welcome to bring your own. We’ll also have coloring pages for younger kids. Bring a snack or dessert to share.

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.
