Ministries

In this section you can find information about ways to become more deeply involved in the life of St. Peter's. If you are interested in hearing more about a particular ministry, talk with Rev. Elaine, or a member of the vestry. You can also contact the church office during the week. Current server schedules may be found below.

  • altar guild

    The altar guild prepares for every worship service at St. Peter's. Their work includes selecting and arranging flowers, getting bread and wine and the needed "dishes" set out before and cleaned up after the service, and taking care of vestments, altar linens. They also care for our indoor plants. This ministry is open to older youth and adults. Training is offered.

  • liturgical ministry

    Our worship service is the work of many people including the acolytes, ushers, lay readers and chalice bearers. We are always looking for people to help in these ways.

  • music

    Across time and religious traditions, music has helped people deepen their connection with God and with one another. Music at St. Peter's ranges from traditional to contemporary. Hymns, accompanied by piano or organ, are part of most worship services. September through May, St. Peter's choir sings as a group, supporting congregational singing and offering an anthem. The choir is always open to new members. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in the choir room on the lower level and on Sunday mornings at 9am in the sanctuary.

  • hospitality

    Coffee Hour Hosts provide and serve a simple snack, cold drink and coffee following worship on Sunday mornings. Then, just like at home, hosts clean up after the parish family and our guests. Want a copy of the schedule? Click below.

  • kneel mail

    Several of us have joined together to start a new ministry at St. Peter's. We've called it “kneel-mail." It is intended to be used when a parishioner or church neighbor has a need that they would like to have prayed for in a speedy, confidential manner. It does NOT replace the church prayer list in the Sunday bulletin. It just provides one more way to pray. When you send or call for a request for prayer, the request immediately goes to our “pray-ers” (the people who have volunteered to pray). We stop whatever we are working on our computers, and make a short, but immediate and intense prayer for whomever has contacted us and for the need expressed. The “pray-ers” are those of us who have volunteered to check our email daily to see if any prayer requests have come through. If so, our motto is “stop, drop and pray.” Afterwords, the person(s) being prayed for may be moved to the church prayer list (in the bulletin), if they so desire. “Kneel-mail” prayer requests do not have to be only for illness or accidents. We would pray for safe travel, thanksgivings, happy news, results and any other issues.
