What to Expect
“Every Sunday, we get to dine with God.” That’s how one member of St. Peter’s recently described what she experiences on Sunday mornings at church. Whether it’s during worship or at Coffee Hour afterwards, a meal is at the heart of our life together.
As an Episcopal Church, our worship includes ancient rituals, yet also embraces the present in meaningful ways. Our liturgy (or prayer) includes hymns and songs as well as times of quiet. There are readings from Holy Scripture, a sermon, prayers and a celebration of the Holy Eucharist where we experience Jesus present with us in bread and wine.
Following worship, the holy meal that we share together in church continues at Coffee Hour. It’s a full-blown feast, a continuation of the hospitality we experienced at God’s table. Some people have remarked that at St. Peter’s, “Coffee Hour” does not do it justice since there is always a meal. We like to think of it as a foretaste of the heavenly banquet!
Children and families
At St. Peter’s, we strive to welcome people of all ages, including infants, toddlers and young children. Our building is equipped with a family restroom, which includes a changing table. For children who may need a little extra “wiggle” room, a child-friendly space is located in the front on the left (organ) side of the church. It is equipped with pillows, soft toys, & coloring pages.
Persons with Disabilities
For persons unable to climb stairs, our space is equipped with a lift from the Lower Parish Hall on the South King Street level to our church space. Our family restroom, currently located in our Lower Parish Hall, is fully accessible.
