All are welcome at God’s table. Gathering together in worship is the heart of our life at St. Peter’s. We have three different worship services. Our main worship service, with organ and choir, is held every Sunday in the church at 11 AM. This service is also live streamed on our YouTube Channel.
We also offer a spoken service with Eucharist the first Sunday of every month at 9 AM in the church.
For families with children age 8 and younger, you are invited to our Family Worship service every Sunday during the school year at 9 AM. The location for this service varies, it is sometimes in-person and sometimes on Zoom. You can view the full fall schedule here. If you’d like to be added to our email list to receive notices about the Family Worship, please sign up for our email newsletter or contact Associate Rector Rev. Sarah Hedgis-Kligerman at [email protected].
At this time, masks are not required at worship services. However, we welcome mask wearing and we have a special section of the church designated for those who want to remain masked and surrounded by those who are masked. Please ask an usher when you arrive if you’d like to sit in the “mask required” section of church.

Sometimes the audio is automatically muted, and you have to “unmute” it to hear. Look in the lower left corner of the video for a small icon of a speaker (it might have a line or X through it). Click on that speaker to turn the audio on. If that doesn’t work, check the speaker on your computer or phone and make sure the volume there is on and turned up.
Scroll down the page and look at the different posts until you find the live stream event. If you still don’t see it, refresh the web page (click the circular arrow at the top left corner of your web browser).
