Welcome to St Peter’s!  Our hope is that you will find God’s love present with you in this place and that you will return here often to worship.


Christian Ed classes for children meet at 10AM in the Parish House.  The curriculum is “Living the Good News”, based on the Lectionary. 


During Lent, the adults at 10AM will be studying God and the Mystery of Human Suffering, a recently published book by Robert Ryan. We will explore this complex subject through a discussion of scriptural and theological wrestling with suffering. 


We have a book group beginning Feb. 29th reading Power and Passion  spotlighting 6 characters surrounding the Resurrection – Pontius Pilate, Barabbas, Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus, Peter and Mary Magdalene. The book demonstrates the significance of these characters for faith and life today. See Elizabeth Heimbach if you would like to get a copy of the book.

 The  LAST Sunday after THE EPIPHANY

February 19, 2012


Transfiguration - Fra Angelico 
“After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.  His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.” – Mark 9:2-3
