Children & Youth

Children’s Ministry

Children of all ages will find a welcoming and nurturing home at St. Peter’s in the Woods, where we come together to learn about God, make friends and have fun!

Children are warmly welcomed at any of our worship services. If helpful, we have worship activity supplies for younger children to enjoy during the service.

Children of all ages are also welcome to receive Holy Communion. When we baptize children, we welcome them into the family of God, as full members of God’s church. Once we are baptized, regardless of age, we are welcome to receive Communion. If you would prefer for your child to receive a blessing, please let the priest know when you come up for communion.

Youth Ministry Leader Fund

We need your PLEDGE by 31 June 2024 so we can begin the search for a Youth Ministry Director to begin this important work in September. Your PLEDGE will indicate that it is to be fulfilled by 1 September 2024,

If we have not pledged sufficient funds by 31 June, all who have donated will be given the option to receive a full refund or to redirect their contribution elsewhere in the church.

If we determine on 31 June that sufficient funds to compensate a Youth Ministry Director have pledged or donated, we will need your PLEDGE FULFILLED by 1 September 2024 so that we can pay our new Youth Ministry Director.

Youth Acolytes

Kids ages 9 and older are invited to consider being an acolyte, assisting the priests in worship. Acolytes are a vital part of our worship team. Serving as an acolyte is a wonderful way to experience church and get to know other kids.

Contact Rev. Susan to get connected!
