Children & Family Service

Every Sunday at 9 a.m., we gather together to sing, to hear God’s word, to pray, and to share Holy Communion. Our popular Family Service is a lively and informal service popular with children ages 1-6 and their families.

By actively participating in all parts of the service, kids feel welcomed, nurtured and important! Following Communion, the children actively engage in doing some aspect of our faith, through a craft, game, or service project. Afterward, all are welcome to enjoy snacks & drinks and get to know one another.

The Family Service is held in the second-floor auditorium of St. Peter’s School at 319 Lombard Street, adjacent to the church. The entrance to the school is in the parking lot off Lombard Street.

*During the summer, the children’s service is held in the parish house at 313 Pine Street instead of the school.

“The Children’s service, with its singing and story-telling, may be directed at the young, but it has renewed and strengthened my own faith in ways that I couldn’t possibly imagine. To see Reverend Claire behind a table lined with children, who had just heard stories of God’s love, holding up her hands blessing the Eucharist, and then glance over and see your daughter, kneeling and, following Claire’s lead, raising her hands up to God as well, transforms one’s faith. And it confirms that St. Peter’s is our family’s spiritual home.” – Lathrop Nelson, parishioner and father of three
