Sunday, December 17, 10:15 Service – Children’s Christmas Pageant
All kids are invited to participate in our annual “no rehearsal” Christmas Pageant! Arrive at the church at 9:30am on Sunday, December 17, to receive a part and a costume. This fun tradition is a great way to celebrate the story of Christmas!
Christmas Gifts for Children in Need
In our ongoing commitment to Covenant to Care, St Peter’s will participate in the giving of Christmas gifts to children in need. We have received a list of names from our DCF social worker, which is posted in the Narthex. Please sign up to provide a gift, then mark the gift with the name and age of the child, and bring it to the church by December 17.

The Discipleship Project

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.
