St. Peter’s has worship at the center of our community’s life.
We are not able to worship in person because of the pandemic. Instead we meet for worship and fellowship via Zoom every Sunday at noon. Additionally, the reading of the Gospel and a sermon are posted here on the website for each Sunday. If you would like to join us via Zoom please the church and we’ll send you the link.
Post-pandemic, our Sunday worship is at 11 a.m. Episcopal Worship at St. Peter’s is halfway between Baptist and Roman Catholic. We sing mostly from the African American Heritage Hymnal while having Communion every Sunday. Children are welcome in our worship space. Baptisms take place primarily on four dates a year or when the Bishop is visiting with us. Any inquiries about worship, please email email@example.com.
Neighborhood Bible Study
We have several neighborhood bible studies. The longest running takes place on the first and third Wednesday of the month at 9 a.m. during our food distribution. It will resume after the pandemic. We also offer Bible study via Zoom on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Church members gather with community members to ask questions about what the Bible is saying to our real life circumstances. All are welcome. For further info, contact Lindsay Komline.
Sunday School and Children’s Ministry
Fourth Sundays are Youth Sundays when we have special offerings for children to learn bible lessons and we also offer a child family meal. For further info about Sunday School and Children’s ministry email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your Questions Answered
Who are the leaders at St. Peter’s?
Episcopal Churches are led first and foremost by Jesus Christ as our savior and redeemer. Episcopal Churches are part of a diocese, a geographical grouping of churches. St. Peter’s is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Our leaders at St. Peter’s are the priest and the Vestry, an elected group of members. We are in a transition until our new priest arrives. Dr. Ronald Carey is the Sr. Warden of the church. St. Peter’s is unique in many ways including our involvement of all members of the church.
