Children & Teens

Babies, young kids and teens – we have a lot of them at St. Peter's. Our children are encouraged to think, ask questions, serve and participate.

As our youth develop into young adults, we help them discover their own meaningful faith practice that can sustain and nurture them throughout life.

Jane and kids

We welcome children by:

  • Having a special time for children during morning worship.
  • Offering quality childcare from birth through age four in our infant nursery.
  • Providing a time for 4th-6th graders to discuss their faith with a volunteer facilitator during both worship services
  • Holding Worship & Wonder (K-3rd grade) every Sunday
  • Offering Children's Worship for children ages 3-5 every Sunday
