Christian Formation at St. Peter's
Our Spiritual Formation program provides a nurturing environment while offering a variety of activities and lessons to support the faith and education of our children. Our program is small enough to allow each child to receive individual attention and to engage in active participation. All parents and guardians are encouraged to visit our classrooms at any time, and volunteers are welcome! New members usually find that this is a place to make friends quickly and comfortably.
We begin each Sunday at 9:45am. Currently there are two main atria (classrooms); a 3-6 yr. old group known as "The Sheepfold" and an older group that is still in the process of emerging. The younger Sheepfold atrium uses a program known as the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. The emphasis for these children is on developing a relationship with God. The older group currently uses a mix of Godly Play and the Season's of the Spirit curriculum.
When possible, in addition to our regularly scheduled Sunday programs, the children are invited to be involved in several annual events - including an annual Christmas Pageant and Easter presentation. The children make Valentines for shut-ins and organize a bake sale to raise money for needy children. Many children share their gifts by periodically joining the congregation as readers or singers in the choir, as well as volunteering to acolyte or crucifer.
