Plan your Visit
If you are thinking about visiting St. Peter’s, we extend our warmest welcome to you. From the moment you walk up to the building you will likely be greeted by a number of friendly faces excited to make your acquaintance!
Parking is available in front of, next to, and behind the main church, which is visible from the intersection. Ushers outside the main doors of the church will be happy to help you find your way around.
Our accessible entrance, with an elevator, is at the rear of the building. Take the elevator to the first floor (marked ‘Church Offices and Sanctuary’) and then follow the hallway around to the right to enter the main sanctuary.
You are welcome to attend our breakfast between the services (breakfast is held at 8:45, September through June). Breakfast takes place in the undercroft, and is a great way to meet clergy, parishioners, and other new members. You’ll see a basket for donations to cover the cost of breakfast, but breakfast is on us for visitors! In the months when breakfast is offered, the rector’s forum will also take place beginning at 9:15 in the undercroft, which covers a variety of topics of interest for Christians and inquirers.
Coffee Hour begins after the 10:30 a.m. service in the undercroft. Join us for sweets, refreshments, and fellowship!
sunday school and nursery
Children and families are an important part of the life of St. Peter’s Church. Nursery and Childcare is available in the Little Building from 9:30 a.m. until 11:45 a.m.
We are currently holding Children's Chapel in Grace Chapel at 10:15 a.m., just before the 10:30 a.m. service. This mini-worship service, led by the children and one of the clergy, is designed to introduce pre-schoolers and older children to what is happening in worship while they are in Sunday School.
Our Sunday School program is for children from three years of age through seventh grade. Children participate in learning the story of God’s love through Bible stories in print and video, games, crafts, and conversation. We create a positive environment for making friends and developing their faith. Each week from September through May, children attend Sunday School at 10:30 a.m. and join their families for the latter part of the worship service. We also offer Summer Sunday School!
