As the days grow shorter and the nights get longer, we will gather together to prepare our heart and minds to welcome Christ into the world. Join us Sundays at 5 pm for a potluck supper and Advent devotions and activities for all ages. Families are especially welcome!
We will start each session off with a few lively songs for the children and then enjoy two Bible stories. Each session will conclude with a simple craft and a small snack. We will meet upstairs in the Children's Chapel at St. Peter's this fall, so please enter through the front door. If you have friends or neighbors with preschool-aged children, please share this information about Bible Storytime, so they can join in the fun this fall. We look forward to seeing you and your children during this fall series of Bible Storytime!
Join us on Sunday, Sept. 9th between the services for our first ever Harvest of Opportunities Fair. Our own Parish Hall will be full of representatives from different groups showcasing how we serve Christ here at Saint Peter's, in the larger community, and in the world. This is the perfect opportunity if you have ever wanted to be an usher, join the WSP, learn more about Just Lunch, or find another way to get involved at Saint Peter's!

Join us for a workshop discussing art in worship with Posey Kralowski. She is an Episcopal priest in the diocese of New York, an award-winning fiber artist and guest lecturer at Union Theological Seminary. This workshop takes place in the worship space. Participants see and reflect on the visual bounty already present within sanctuaries. How does the art and architecture of our sacred spaces inform and enhance out liturgies? What concepts are we internalizing about God and the human condition through what our eyes encounter? Participants will spend an time learning the technique of contemplative group observation of art, which its then used as a catalyst for dialogue.
