Sign-up for our next Welcome & Discovery Class if you would like to understand more about worship, faith and service in the Anglican Tradition; the Episcopal Church; and at St. Peter’s.
We will begin with dinner on Tuesday evening, and have a relaxed time of learning more about worship and sacraments, while also tracing the outlines of Christian faith as we have received it through the Bible and the Christian Tradition. Father Furman will give particular attention to the “lenses” through which Anglicans and Episcopalians see. The class resumes on Wednesday evening with coffee and fruit and cheese. There is no obligation or commitment associated with this class. You may sign-up by calling the parish office at 268-7280 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Sunday, Sunday, September 15
Eucharist Visitor Training
September 21 @ 9:30 a.m.
St. Peter’s is blessed to have a vibrant Eucharistic Visitor ministry, in which a trained and licensed lay person takes consecrated bread and wine from our Sunday service to share with our members who are unable to come to church. This ministry is vital to those who are ill or home-bound, allowing them to continue to participate in our corporate worship. We will be offering a Eucharistic Visitor Training at 9:30 on Saturday morning, September 21 in the Choir Room. If you plan to come, please contact the church office.
