Welcome newcomers

Secondary Title

Welcome to our parish webpage! We are glad you have found us and want you to know that if you are looking for a spiritual home, you would be most welcome in our community.


In the past few years, we have redoubled our efforts to welcome newcomers into our midst. One of our most popular events to that end is our annual Newcomer’s Sunset Cruise in early fall. It is a great way to meet staff, members, and other people who are new to the parish. We hope that you will join us for drinks, light snacks, and great conversation, we can't wait to see you there!


To all of our newcomers, a sincere and hearty WELCOME!

  • invite+welcome+connect

    Invite- Welcome- Connect is a Diocesan ministry that transforms congregations and individuals by equipping them with intentional practices of evangelism, hospitality, and connectedness, following the gospel directive to 'Go and make disciples of all nations' (Matthew 28:19). Our goal is to shift the culture of the Episcopal Church from maintenance to mission. Join our committee at St. Peter's to help grow this vital ministry. Contact us if interested or if you have any questions.

  • Inquirer's Class

    The Episcopal Church Welcomes You!

    Are you interested in joining St. Peter's as a member? Consider joining our Inquirers Class! Have you ever wondered about the significance of certain worship practices? Are you curious about the Episcopal approach to Holy Scripture? Would you like to learn more about the common life of our congregation?


    An Inquirers Class is being held once a month for newcomers who are interested in being confirmed, welcomed, or received during the Bishop's next visit.

    We will be using the book "Walk in Love" by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe for the class. Copies are available in the office for $15 or can be purchased from Amazon if you prefer. You are welcome to attend the class without making a commitment to be confirmed or received. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to one of the clergy members.


    Program dates include Sundays: March 10, 17, April 7, 14, 21, 28, and May 5 at 11:30 in the Conference Room.

If physical limitations make it difficult for you to come to the rail, please let an usher know and we will be happy to bring Communion to you in your pew. 


     † To receive the wafer, cross your hands, palm up, and the wafer will be placed in your hand. To receive the chalice, lightly steady the cup with your hand and help direct it to your lips. If you do not wish to receive the chalice, simply cross your arms over your chest. If you need a gluten-free wafer, please speak to one of the clergy before service.
