Who We Are
Welcome to St. Peter's! We are so glad you are here.
St. Peter's is a vibrant community, made up of children, women and men from many different walks of life, all seeking a deeper relationship with God in Christ Jesus, through worship, formation, and service.
Jesus said the first commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and so at St. Peter's you will find wecome for all of yourself: your heart, and your mind, as your soul seeks to deepen in discipleship, seeks intimate relationship with God.
At St. Peter's there is a place for everyone: the intellectual, the artist (the intellectual artist...), the introvert and the extrovert, retired and active duty military and the 21st century incarnation of flower children, singles and families, and newly-re-singled finding a new life in community. We represent the full spectrum of theological and political perspectives, sometimes disagreeing with one another about ideas that are important to us-- while trusting our love for one another in Christ Jesus is what is really important, and finding our unity in Jesus as we kneel together at his altar.
Our ministries include the contemplative and the active. Our worship services run the spectrum of the quiet and simple to vibrant and celebratory, traditional and formal to groovin' to a reggae beat. "Martha" and "Mary" (read the Bible story here) both have a place at St. Peter's: We love to pray and study, and we love to serve in Christ's name. Our parish life includes programing and ministries for all ages, from the youngest toddlers and infants, through teens and into young adulthood, and empty-nesters and seniors will find ministries to engage them as they discern how they will live faithfully in these new times in their lives.
We hope this website will help you explore our community, and we hope you will be in touch with any questions or wonderings.
