Adult Formation at St. Peter's
Centering Prayer Group
Please join us Thursday mornings at 10 a.m. in the parlor. We enter quietly, and at the sound of the bell, become centered in silence, entering the peace of God's loving Presence. Please contact the church office for more information on this wonderful way to start your day!
EfM (Education for Ministry)
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.
If you'd like more information about St. Peter's EfM offerings, contact the church office.
Foyer Groups begin in the fall and run through May each year. They are a great way to meet new friends and to reconnect with folks you have known for a while. Each Foyer group is made up of people who take turns hosting dinner in their homes. We also have foyer groups who meet for dinners in restaurants, locally.
If you'd like more information, contact the church office. We hope to see you there!
Each fall and spring, we host introductory classes for folks interested in learning more about the Episcopal church and our local congregation, here at St. Peter's. This is a great way to explore whether membership is the right option for you.
St. Peter's 101, intro to the Episcopal Church and life at St. Peter's
St. Peter's 102, wine and cheese campus tour through a historical lense
Please contact Rachel Davis or the church office for more information about these classes.
Nourish: Wednesday Nights
Join us on Wednesday evenings for a rotation of classes, followed by a community dinner. Current classes can be found on our seasonal calendar and will include the Rector's Forum, a program consisting of topics on the heart, soul and mind of our community, at the choice of the rector. We will explore various theological ideas, consider current events, and think faithfully about how to live as Christians in the world today.
St. Peter's Readers
This group enjoys reading and discussing books of various topics in fiction and non-fiction. We have lively discussions each month and all are welcome, whether the scheduled book for discussion has been read or not. We meet the third Tuesday monthly for an hour in St. Peter’s parlor at 10:30 a.m., September through May (except in December.) When the meeting concludes, all interested parties decide on where to go to lunch. Contact the office for more information.
