THURSDAY NIGHT SERVICES BY CANDLELIGHT – 8:00 pm
This service is every Thursday evening. We gather in a quiet church with candles throughout. We hold a simple 45 minute service, reflecting on scripture, praying, and enjoying a different genre of music each week. Find a time to still yourself after a busy day and prepare for sleep with a lightened spirit. See our music schedule for the Thursday night services.
ORGAN RECITALS – Thursday at 12:15pm
Every Thursday noon until December 13rd. A variety of guest musicians come and play for 45 minutes. All are welcome! Please note: if school buses are cancelled, the recital is too.
ALL SAINT’S DAY – Thursday, November 1st at all 3 services
It is an opportunity for believers to remember all saints and martyrs, known and unknown, throughout Christian history. The saints and martyrs were not perfect people, but people who let the light of Christ shine through them in an exemplary way. Like them, all who are baptized are asked letlight shine in the dark places of the world. At St. Peter’s we will celebrate All Saint’s day on Sunday, Nov. 4th at all 3 services.
All Soul’s Day – Friday, November 2nd at 7:00pm
The Commemoration of the Faithful Departed celebrates the saints in a more local and intimate key. It allows us to remember with thanksgiving before God those whom we have known more directly: those who gave us life, or who nurtured us in faith. We will have a service on Nov. 2nd at 7:00 pm to light candles, remember loved ones, and share the Eucharist together.
