Our Worship Services
Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.’" (Luke 4: 8)
We are happy you have decided to worship with us! All who are baptized are invited to receive Holy Communion; alternately, you are invited to come forward for a blessing. Our services are streamed on St. Peter's YouTube for those who choose to worship from home.
Saturday 5:00 PM
In Moore Memorial Chapel; no music.
(Note: The entrance to our chapel is located in our parish hall.)
This contemplative service uses the same Bible lessons appointed for Sunday worship. The liturgy follows Rite II in the Book of Common Prayer, which uses contemporary English for celebrating the sacrament of Holy Eucharist each week. We hope to soon return to offering Healing Prayers before the service for those who desire laying-on-of-hands and anointing.
Sunday 7:45 AM
In the sanctuary; no music
This contemplative liturgy follows Rite 1 in The Book of Common Prayer, which uses traditional language ("thee" and "thou"), for celebrating the sacrament of Holy Eucharist each week. After worship, the congregation gathers in Williams Hall for coffee.
Sunday 10:15 AM
In the sanctuary with music
Our primary Sunday worship service following Rite II in The Book of Common Prayer, with scripture readings, a sermon, prayers, Holy Communion, and music led by our minister of music and choir. Children are always welcome at worship! Children up to age 5 can visit our Pray-ground during worship (parents can sit in the first few pews nearby), and we have Pew Bags with some activities like coloring and finger labyrinths for children to borrow during worship. Stop by our Prayer Station (by the pray-ground) with your youngsters before or after worship, where children can "light" (turn on) a candle and say a prayer. As of September 11, 2022, we offer the following for children during our 10:15AM service:
1st & 4th Sunday: Our nursery will have volunteers to supervise your infants through 4-year olds while you worship.
2nd Sunday: Children's Chapel during the first half of the service for preschool-2nd grade. They'll be led back to the sanctuary to find their parents in the pews midway through the service.
3rd Sunday: Children's sermon by Reverend Valerie
Wednesday 10:00 AM
