How long is the service? The service runs about an hour. Sometimes with a celebration service or a festival service like Christmas or Easter the service may run a few minutes longer.
Are there greeters? Yes, there is always someone on hand to give you a bulletin, welcome you and ask you if you would like someone to sit with you to help along with the service.

I have young children, is there something for them?
St. Peter’s Sunday School and Children’s Church
Sunday school is up and running for the fall. Children in third grade and up are invited to join Eric Valentine and Jeff Hickey in the Parish House at 10 am for a new program on the New Testament.
