Welcome to St Peter’s!  Our hope is that you will find God’s love resent 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 are 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. 


The Lenten book group continues this Wednesday, March 21st.  Stay tuned for the time that the book group will meet this week. 


Happy Birthday – Kenneth Allwine II (Mar. 19),  Upshaw anniversary (Mar. 20) , Johnny Davis (Mar. 24)
