Children are welcome at all Sunday liturgies. During 10:15 am liturgy, there is a nursery for infants and young children. The nursery is located through the inside upstairs entrance of the Pre-School. Dating from 1945 and with other additions through the years, St. Peter’s is an older ‘quirky’ building; direct routes are not always obvious, but we hope our signs will help. You will also find friendly people nearby, or you can take a look at our online map. Just ask to be pointed in the right direction.

On Sunday at St. Peter’s we set aside the 9:00 hour for education. During the school year, you will find offerings for adults, children and youth in various locales. Please visit our Christian Formation page for more information.

We have two Sunday services at St. Peter’s. The early service is at 8:00am, and is Holy Eucharist with no music. Our second service is at 10:15am, and may include a variety of musical offerings including participatory service music and hymns, soloists, instrumentals, or choral music. Please note that in summer months we consolidate our services to one Sunday service, held at 9:30am, with music.

As you enter the church, there will be an Order of Service available at each door into the nave (church). This all-inclusive order of service contains liturgy of the Holy Eucharist taken from the Book of Common Prayer (red) and the Hymnal (dark blue). Both books are available in the pews.

You are welcome to sit anywhere that you feel comfortable; there is no assigned seating at St. Peter’s.

You are welcome at the Altar. Come forward to the altar rail and take the next available place. You may kneel or stand. Receive the Communion from the priest in your hands. You may choose to receive the wine directly from the Chalice by gently guiding it to your lips as the Chalice Bearer presents it to you. If you wish to receive by intinction (dipping the wafer in the wine), leave the wafer in your hands and the Chalice Bearer will assist you. If you choose not to receive the wine, simply cross your arms across your chest after you have received the wafer. You may then return to your seat. If it is physically difficult for you to come to the altar rail, please indicate this to an usher and a priest will bring Communion to you where you are seated. If you need to receive a Gluten Free host, simply say so to the priest. All who desire to receive the body and blood of Christ at communion are welcome God’s table.

Children are welcome at the altar at their parents’ discretion.

If you, or your child(ren), would like to receive a blessing from a priest at the altar rail, come forward just as you would to receive Communion and cross your arms across your chest, and/or instruct your child(ren) to do the same.

We encourage you to ask questions and seek information. We also invite and encourage you to introduce yourself to our clergy and staff if we have not already greeted you. We are happy to welcome you to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
