SUN
Holy Eucharist
8:00 AM
Today's gospel starts with disciples obsessing over who's number one, which leads Jesus to say something about God's take on importance and power. Here Jesus makes it explicit that the reversal of values in God's community is a direct challenge to the values of the dominant culture, where wielding power over others is what makes you great. When we pray "your kingdom come" we are praying for an end to tyranny and oppression. We pray this gathered around the cross, a sign of great shame transformed to be the sign of great honor and service.

Christian Education
James Kern

All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16

 

“One of the primary aims of the Committee on Christian Education shall be to bring the call to the ministry of the Gospel and to other full-time church vocations to the attention of the qualified youth of the congregation.” St. Peter’s Council Handbook on Christian Education

 

Qualified youth at St. Peter’s consists of everyone between the ages of 0 – 100. Our learning should never cease! God gave us his Holy Word to learn from and to grow in a sound and loving relationship with him and with others. There are many learning opportunities at St. Peter’s:

 

  • Sunday School – The Sunday Church School (SCS) is in session every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM beginning the second Sunday in September through mid-June. All children 3 years old through grade 6 are welcome to attend. SCS education consists of age appropriate lessons in Bible, worship, worship music and stewardship.

  • Classes for First Holy Communion – Children in the 2nd grade are eligible to begin receiving Holy Communion. In a half-day retreat with Pastor and their parents, children will learn the importance of the Lord’s Supper and the Lutheran perspective on the body and blood of Christ.

  • Confirmation Bible Study and Catechism Class – Middle school age children, typically at the end of their 8th grade school year, are invited to affirm their baptismal promises and become a confirmed member of the church. To prepare for this very important milestone in their lives, St. Peter’s provides a two year confirmation education program. At the beginning of their 7th grade year, eligible youth meet twice a week for Catechism and Bible studies.

  • Vacation Bible School – A five day summer program for ages 3 -12. Usually held in mid-August, Vacation Bible School is always a fun adventure with Jesus! Children enjoy music, games and crafts all centered on a Biblical theme.

  • Sunday Adult Forum – Pastor led study for adults held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM during the academic year and at 10:00 AM during the summer.

  • New Member Classes – For anyone interested in becoming a member of St. Peter’s or desiring to learn about the Lutheran faith. This 4-session education opportunity is provided as needed.

  • Men’s Bible Study & Fellowship – Every Thursday night at 8:00 PM

  • Gospel Girls Women’s Bible Study & Fellowship – Every Thursday night at 8:00 PM

  • Early Learning Center Preschool – half day programs available 2, 3 or 5 days a week; St. Peter’s Early Learning Center (ELC) is a Christian based preschool emphasizing academics as well as art, music and gym.

 

Show me your ways O Lord; teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me.” (Psalm 25:4)
