At St. Peters, we celebrate a blended style of worship. That simply means that we blend traditional hymns with contemporary choruses. We honor our theological heritage while intentionally seeking to reach this generation through the use of multimedia in worship. Enjoy exploring our website and check back often as our site is currently under renovation.

 Small Group Study


Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
     A spiritual formation group encourages individuals to focus on deep questions such as:
     How is God working in my life?
     How am I being formed in the likeness of Christ?
     What practices will open me to God's leading?

* You will explore the depths of scripture, learn to listen to God through it, and allow your life to be shaped by the Word.
* You will experience new dimensions of prayer, try fresh ways of opening to God, and learn what it means to practice the presence of God.
*You will reflect on Christ's call in your life and discover anew the gifts that God is giving you for living out your personal ministry.
*You and members of your group will grow together as a Christian community and gain skills in learning how small groups in the church become settings for spiritual guidance.



     Welcome to our website.  At St. Peter's we are discovering what God is doing through people like you and me. 

      If you are wondering "why Jesus?" or "why church?" you are invited to explore our website.  And who knows? You might discover that St. Peter's is the church you and your family have been looking for. 

     Our Sunday morning worship service is at 10:15am and if you have children we have childcare available during our worship hour.  We are a safe sanctuary congregation.  All our childcare staff have criminal and child abuse clearances.

     Our worship experience is blended, a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles and we use multimedia.   We are a United Methodist Church committed to walking in the footsteps of Jesus.  Hope to see you worshiping with us soon.

      Our Website is presently under construction, so check back often for updates and new pages.
