As a member of The Episcopal Church, St. Peter’s is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity. Our worship is often called “liturgy.” One definition of liturgy is “the work of the people”, and it reminds us that worship is something a whole congregation takes up together. We stand, we kneel, we sit; we sing, we speak, we listen. The liturgy involves us all. And the liturgy involves all of our selves. Don’t worry if you don’t pick up everything right away. It is a process, and someone will be there to help you.
We’re a community that studies scripture together, celebrates communion together, and gathers for meals, laughter, and fun. And in doing these things, we find ourselves strengthened for our work in the world. Our duty as Christians does not stop once we leave St. Peter’s. We have several ministries where we serve Christ by ministering to those in need, seeking justice for the oppressed, and uplifting unheard voices in our community. From The Wisdom House Project, to the Food Pantry, to our Servant Leadership School- you will find St. Peter’s going out into the world.
With joy, St. Peter’s affirms the beauty of God’s diverse creation. Our community is grounded in the belief that All Are Welcome in this place. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or straight—we welcome you. Single, married, divorced or partnered—we welcome you. Age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, economic condition, physical or mental ability—there are no barriers or boundaries, we welcome you. Seeker and believer, questioning and curious, no matter where you are on your journey of faith, we welcome you.
We are glad you have come to our website. You may be looking for a place of worship, somewhere to think about the larger questions of our lives, a quiet space to pray, a community of people learning together what it means to follow Jesus, or simply a place where you will be welcomed as you are. Whatever it is that you seek, we hope you will take a closer look at this open and loving community of faith.
