Faith Formation at St. Peter's Church

Faith formation seeks to help people:
—Grow in their relationship with God for the whole of life
—Live as disciples of Jesus at home, at work, in the community, and in the world
—Develop an understanding of the Bible and their faith tradition
—Deepen their spiritual life and practices
—Engage in service and mission to the world
—Participate in the life and ministries of their faith community
— John Roberto, Generations Together
 

Faith formation, or the forming of people as disciples of Jesus Christ, is a lifelong journey.  So, we offer a variety of programs to help equip people of all ages for this journey.  The Episcopal Church's Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation tells us that God invites us to enter a life of prayerful worship and continuous learning.  He also inspires us to develop new learning experiences and equip disciples for life in this world.  Finally, God transforms us into a loving community who witnesses to the love of God as we strive to do the work Jesus calls us to do. In doing so we develop a faith of the head, the heart, and the hands.  Join us as we live out our baptismal vows as a community of faith!

 

Our new adult formation series, Exploring the Psalms, runs this fall!

Families & Adults

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and we know that people have different formation needs at different stages of life. Whether you are looking for personal formation or caring for an entire family, we have resources to help you on your journey.

Confirmation & Youth

For older children our confirmation program is a two-year, dynamic experience, usually for students in 7th & 8th grade.  For high school students, our youth group meets regularly for prayer, service, and fellowship. Check out our programs below!

Faith at Home & Church 

We love to see you at church, and we offer lots of activities there, like LIFE 2.0.  We also know that real faith is formed in the home, too.  Check our pages below--we can equip you to be a leader in your family's formation!


Upcoming Events:

Exploring the Psalms: An Adult Formation Series (3 of 3)
November 18 / 3:00 pm / Home Study (contact office for details!)

In a smaller group home setting, we will be exploring the language and lyrics of the different Psalms, using music by U2 and others, and the modern-day translation The Message in addition to our treasured Book of Common Prayer version.
