Retreats, Work Days, Bible Studies and Meals
While many of our activities are for both men and women, this page highlights a few activities that St. Peter's men have connected with.
Men’s Retreat For several years, a group of men at St. Peter's has gathered during the fall at Camp Palaowopec in beautiful Brown County, Indiana. In addition to the fun and fellowship of being outdoors, men have a chance to explore how they would like their core beliefs as individuals to make a difference in the world. Additional mini-retreats are offered throughout the year.
Men’s Monthly Breakfast On the third Thursday of each month, St. Peter’s men gather for breakfast and conversation at First Watch Cafe -Keystone beginning at 8:00 a.m.
Seasonal Grounds Cleanup: Ahh ... it's a great day to get dirty and become "one with the earth." If you're an able-bodied person who enjoys the satisfaction of a nice-looking landscape, St. Peter's wants you! Twice a year, we have a "work day" where we get the grounds ready for spring/summer and fall/winter. It only takes a few hours in the morning, but after we're done, things look great! We pull weeds, rake leaves, spread mulch and talk trash. Questions? Contact the Building and Grounds Team. Our next workday will be Saturday, May 20 from 9:00a.m.-12:00p.m.
"Praying for Lightning" Softball Team St. Peter's has a co-ed softball team playing in the Fishers League at Roy G. Holland Memorial Park throughout spring, summer and fall. Contact the church office if you're interested in joining our team. Softball skills are not necessary. It's all about recreation and FUN!
Peace Garden We had land. We had gardeners. So a couple of years ago, some enthusiastic members created our very first “Peace Garden” right in the front yard of the church. It’s a wonderful way to participate in creation, by preparing the soil, planting seeds, pulling weeds and harvesting lots of cucumbers, pumpkins, corn, squash and green beans. Most of the bounty is donated to area food banks in the Indianapolis area.
Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis (FPGI) Four times a year (rotating with other area congregations), St. Peter’s hosts a group of families facing homelessness. Our goal is to keep families together during this challenging time (often, families are forced to split up). During weeks that we host families, about fifty St. Peter’s folk volunteer for a variety of service tasks: setting up bedrooms, preparing breakfast and dinner, driving to and from the day center, coordinating activities for the children, staying overnight as a host to the families, and laundering the bedding at the end of the week. FP is a great ministry opportunity for all ages! For more information, contact the Missions Team.
Dine with Nine Dine with Nine has long been a tradition of our congregation. Typically, groups of nine people have been coordinated to share meals and/or an activity together, usually once a month for six months. This provides a unique way to meet new people, reconnect with old friends, and share in fellowship with other St. Peter’s friends.
