Sunday, April 2, 10:15 service – Bishop Visitation and Baptism
Bishop Laura Ahrens will visit St. Peter’s on April 2 and will conduct a baptismal service. Those interested in being received into the Episcopal Church or in reaffirming their baptismal vows should speak to Rev. Kurt.
Thursday, April 6, 6:00-9:00pm – Paint Night Fundraiser
Have you noticed how beautiful St Peter’s sanctuary looks now that’s it’s been re-painted? This long-awaited project has brought new life to our historic church, but we still need to raise more funds to cover the cost. That’s why we’re hosting a “Paint for Paint” fundraiser on April 6. Painting & Vino will provide instruction and everything you need to make a lovely painting. We will also have wine available for purchase! Please see this flyer (pdf) for details.
Save the Date: Wine Tasting April 29!

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.
