Children at St. Peter's have a number of opportunities for formation. From Sunday mornings to special events, our goal is to make learning the faith fun and interesting. Our activities are always open for appropriately aged children of the community and we encourage our children to in invite a friend.
Preschool Story Time
This program meets on Wednesdays, alternating between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM each week. Usually running in two, ten week sessions, one in the fall and one in the winter/spring, Storytime is intended for children who have not yet started kindergarten. Children hear bible stories, sing songs, make a craft, share a snack and enjoy each other’s' company. Often parents organize informal play dates on our playground before or after our sessions. The program usually lasts 45 minutes to an hour.
Summer Vacation Bible School
Each Summer St. Peter's offers a Vacation Bible School, which is open to the entire community. Children learn Bible stories, important biblical themes, sing songs, make crafts, and play games. We end the week with a short program, so parents, friends and families can hear some of the themes that their children learned during the week as well as enjoy the songs that were sung during the week.

Life Together is where fun, deepening of relationships and formation takes place for our students in middle school and high school.
