Worship for the First Time
These doors are open to you. We welcome the faithful, the seeker, the doubter, for God’s embrace is wide and God’s good news is for all. Whoever you are, and wherever you find yourself on the journey of faith, you are welcome at St. Peter’s, just as you are, to receive the riches of God’s blessings so freely given.
If you are seeking a place to worship this Sunday, a church home for you and your family, or a community of fellow sojourners, please join us. As our vision affirms: St. Peter’s is a thriving urban parish whose members nourish one another in lives of faith, share the love of Christ, and serve the people of this neighborhood and City.
