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, Worship & Communion
Children are warmly welcomed at any of our worship services. If helpful, we have child-friendly activity bags for younger children to enjoy during the service. Children of all ages are also welcome to receive 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 our 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 Messy Church to Cocoa and Compline, we create unique monthly worship spaces that are welcoming to all yet especially geared towards our children and families. Check the calendar and join us!
