Welcome & Discovery Class
June 4 -5, 2019
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. Fr. Furman will be teaching the class and all are welcome. You may sign-up by calling the parish office at 268-7280 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Sunday, June 2.
First Sundays at 4 pm from October through June
“You gave me a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.” Ps 18:36
Behind the altar of St. Peter’s church, we are blessed to have a labyrinth, a spiritual path. It is set in a sacred space. Walking to its center, the pilgrim or prayer walker, lets go of all thoughts and concerns. The center is a place to tell God- “Here I am Lord,” use me for your service. Walking back out the same path that one entered, one meditates on what service they can bring to the world.
A simple prayer.
Weather permitting, join us every first Sunday at 4 pm from October through June for a community walk or simply walk and pray any time the Spirit moves you or the world troubles you.

Are You Called to Become A Daughter of the King?
We are a group of Christian women striving to fulfill the promises of our Baptismal Covenant through the adoption of a Rule of Life:
• To continue in the Apostles’ teaching & fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers.
• To persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.
• To proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
• To seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.
• To strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.
At Confirmation we promise to pray, work, and give for the spread of Christ’s Kingdom. Through membership in our Order women are:
• Strengthened through prayer.
• Helped to learn through study.
• Provided community with other Daughters.
We are a group of women living a Rule of Prayer and Service to our neighbors. We are women to whom parishioners can look for love and for help in time of need or loneliness. We seek to walk with God as our guide and try to draw those with whom we come in contact into the church. We are women who work to spread Christ’s Kingdom here on earth. We can never forget that prayer is the foundation from which our service grows.
“Prayer without work is empty words, Service without prayer is labor lost.”
We find The Order of the Daughters of the King to be a safe place in a busy world where we can be together and support each other in Christ’s love.
