Children & Youth

children-camp

We have programming for all stages of childhood. Please scroll down to see more information on the following:

  • Infants
  • Age 3-Grade 5
  • Grade 6-12

Infant – Age 3

Nursery

Younger children and babies are welcome in the Nursery, located on the main floor of the church. Sometimes a three year old is not quite ready to join Church School, so they can stay in the Nursery until they are comfortable with listening quietly and doing activities with the older children.

Age 3 – Grade 5

Church School

Once a child is comfortable participating in a classroom program without a parent or guardian present, they are invited to join St. Peter’s Church School program. To learn more about Church School, please visit this link.

Vacation Bible School

St. Peter’s hosts a one-week day camp program for elementary school-aged children in the summer. Children will learn about the ministries in the church, the Bible, learn more about their faith, and participate in a range of games, crafts, activities and songs. Signup for VBS begins in late spring. Please watch the St. Peter’s homepage, the weekly newsletter and/or the church bulletin for more information on when to sign up.

Grade 6 – Grade 12

St. Peter’s has many vibrant and active programs for youth. Young people are involved in Church School, worship services (as servers, readers, teachers, nursery care, sidespeople, and intercessors), volunteering with outreach projects, in youth groups, and in many other ways.

St. Peter’s Youth (S.P.Y.)

St. Peter’s offers many service opportunities for youth. Young people are actively involved in worship services as servers, readers and/or intercessors.
Youth, who are  between Grade 6 to 12, are invited to join our weekly S.P.Y Bible Study on Sundays during the 9:15 AM service.
