CHILDREN & YOUTH
We believe that children are gifts from God. They bring their own spiritual gifts and perspectives, both giving and receiving ministry. They are an essential and integral part of the St. Peter’s community. Christian formation that is engaging, creative and welcoming fosters a deeper relationship with God, helps children connect their story to the larger Christian story and inspires service to the world in God’s name.
Although St. Peter’s welcomes children at all times, a special service for young children and their families takes place at 9 a.m. every Sunday during the school year. At this time, the service is usually in-person and occasionally virtual on Zoom. This service is designed to nurture children’s spiritual formation and growth through singing, stories and communion.

Sarah Hedgis-Kligerman at [email protected].
Advent Worship 2022 Schedule
You and your family are invited to join us for Advent Family Worship at St. Peter’s! This Advent, we will explore the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love by remembering that the story of Advent is about God taking on a physical body like ours. As we wait with anticipation and prepare for baby Jesus to be born this Advent season, we will discover the awesomeness of incarnation and what it means for God to move, act, and live with us.
