Feast of St. Nicholas Service, Followed by The Polar Express
Sunday, December 11 @ 4 p.m.

The whole family is invited to join us in worship and learn about generous St. Nicholas of Myra. We will have themed snacks, stories, and have a visit from jolly ole St. Nicholas himself!

Nicholas gave in secret, was alert to the needs of others, and expected nothing for himself in return. In his spirit, we ask that each child bring one of their gently used toys to donate to a women’s shelter play area. If possible, have your child decide which toy they would like to give. Families are invited to bring canned goods as an offering.

After the church service we will head down to Stockstill Hall for a light dinner and story time. We will then settle in to watch The Polar Express. The children are welcome to wear their pajamas as we enjoy this holiday classic with our friends from SPY. You are welcome to join us for the whole evening or whatever portion best fits your family’s schedule. Please contact Jan Rhodes at or Laura Lipscomb at with any questions.

For one night only, St. Peter’s Episcopal welcomes you to our very own Christkindlmarkt 

Please join us on December 17 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at our Pavilion to celebrate our joyous season with seasonal delicacies, carols and crafts offered for sale.

Frohlocket, frohlocket, ihr Seligen:
Ehre sei Gott im Himmel
Und auf Erden!

Angel Giving Tree

St. Peter’s Angel Tree is decorated and ready for your perusal! The angel gift tags are made in partnership with the Taylors YMCA who assist families living in the Taylors Motel 6. If you select an angel tag, you may remove it from the tree and purchase the gift indicated, wrap it, attach the angel tag, and return it under the tree by Sunday, December 18.  (There are a few tags that are labeled that the gift should be returned by Sunday, December 11. Those gifts are in partnership with Shepherd’s Gate—a local Ministry that shelters women and children escaping abusive situations.)

Through our “Envelopes on the Christmas Giving Tree” at the Church beginning November 27, we as a parish, have significantly increased our donations each year. Your generosity has been tremendous. Please return your envelopes with your donation checks in the basket on the table in front of the church office by December 20. Please make your check payable to ERD.

If you have questions, please speak with Kurt Cummings, Sally Armstrong or Lisa Wakeley
