Christian Formation at St. Peter's

At St. Peter's we offer educational opportunities for people of all ages to learn about the Bible, Christian beliefs and spiritual practices. We wrestle with tough questions and know we don't have all the answers. Christian Education at St. Peter's happens not only in formal classrooms but through all we do together.

Messy Church All Ages

Messy Church is coming to St Peter's.  Imagine gathering for a meal, in the sanctuary, while using craft materials to explore our faith story.  Together, people of all generations gather, taking a Biblical theme, such as water, and create expressions of the many ways water draws humanity toward the divine.


We gather for Messy Church once a month, at 5:30 pm, usually on the third Wednesday night.  Everyone is welcome. In many way, this is an entry point to the faith community.  Invite friends - it's not just for Episcopalians!

Adult formation

Adult Christian Formation offerings vary throughout the year. Seasonal offerings during Advent and Lent are often led by the clergy and weekly discussions at other times of the year are based on topical concerns or current Lectionary readings. Adult formation meets at 9am on Sundays during the school year.

Lent Wednesday Nights

We will gather on Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. for a shared meal and Lenten Reflections. This year, in part honoring the journey of our J2A youth and other recent pilgrimages, we will be using: Are We There Yet: Pilgrimage in the Season of Lent. This book published by Forward Movement with sections by several authors. Books will be available to purchase from Elaine.
