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 are studying God and the Mystery of Human Suffering, a recently published book by Robert Ryan.


Signup for Easter Lilies and Special Donations is in the bulletin insert.
