Fall at St. Peter’s
Fall is an exciting time at St. Peter’s! On September 8, we welcome everyone back from summer vacation and restoration on Back to Church Sunday, featuring the Blessing of the Backpacks and our Ministry Fair. October features our Blessing of the Animals on October 6, and in November we celebrate All Saints’ and All Souls’, plus wrap up our Stewardship season with a celebratory Ingathering and Potluck Brunch on November 17.
LIFE 2.1 + Wiggle and Worship=Sunday Faith Formation at St. Peter’s
Resuming on September 8: LIFE 2.1, or Living in Faith Everyday, offers an activity each Sunday at Fellowship Hour following the 10:00 am service during the program year. During Wiggle and Worship, we invite all children through 6th grade to learn a Bible story with reading, activities and songs during the sermon portion of the 10:00 am service. We know schedules are busy, and we want to make sure our St. Peter's family has access to faith formation for church and home every time they're here!
Our past is rich and full of great work, and we dream of expanding on our tradition of seeking and serving Christ in all people. However, our parish house, which has served us well, has reached the end of its useful life. Through discussion and prayer with the congregation we have discerned that now is the time to act and move forward! This fall, we are completing the approvals process with Freehold Borough and other planning boards. Ground-breaking is coming soon!
