The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. This Lent, St. Peter’s–along with other parishes throughout the Episcopal Church–are walking with Jesus in his Way of Love. During the homilies at each of these Wednesday liturgies, Fr. Furman will offer reflections on the 7 marks of following in the way of Jesus, the way of love. These 7 touchstones comprise a rule of life that Christians have been following for 2000 years. Join us for worship this Lent and discover the action verbs involved in a Jesus-centered life: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, and Rest.
St. Peter’s Players Present: GODSPELL
May 15-18, 2019
St. Peter’s Players invite you to PREPARE for GODSPELL. This Steven Schwartz musical is a modern spin on the Gospel according to Matthew. A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”
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.
