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. 


Family Friendly Worship

From Children’s Chapel to Messy Church and Cocoa and Compline, we create unique monthly outdoor worship spaces that are welcoming to all yet especially geared towards our children and families. Check the calendar and join us!

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!
