Children, Youth, and Family

Children, Youth, and Family Ministries at St. Peter’s

Children, Youth, and Family Ministries at St. Peter’s is planning an exciting upcoming year. We would love for you to join us for Worship, Sunday School, Fellowship Activities, Service Events, and more! Each Sunday we have worship services at 8:30 and 10am. Our Sunday School program runs during the 10am worship service – children attend the beginning of worship with their families and then, following the Children’s Chat, they go down to their Sunday School classrooms. Our Sunday School program is a lectionary based program which means your children will be learning about the same lessons and stories that we use in our worship services! Following Sunday School the Children’s Choir begins rehearsal which lasts for approximately 30 minutes. For more information about the Children’s Choir please contact Carol Evans at evans.c@gmercyu.edu.

The Children, Youth, and Family Ministry Team is hard at work planning our annual calendar for 2017/2018. We want to share two fun upcoming events with you right away! On Friday, September 29th we will be holding a Family Movie Night! We bring pillows, blankets, lawn chairs, whatever makes you comfortable, have a bunch of snacks, settle in and enjoy a fun, family movie! (Last time we watched Inside Out). On Sunday, October 29th we will have our annual Trunk or Treat Event following the 10am worship service. Come to church in your Halloween Costume, enjoy worship. Then we head to the parking lot where many people decorate their cars and distribute candy. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday morning in the fall!

More events will be planned soon and our full calendar, along with updates and other information will be available here on the church website. If you have any questions or would like more information about St. Peter’s or our Children, Youth, and Family Ministries please contact Pastor Suloff at revsuloff@gmail.com. We hope that you will put these events on your calendars, join us for worship and Sunday School, follow us on Facebook. We invite you to join us as together we share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ with us!

Confirmation Class

At the time of Baptism, promises were made to “see to teach them the creed, the 10 Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer and to see to their instruction in the Christian Faith.” We help you fulfill these promises through our Confirmation Program. It is a two year program for youth 7th grade or above, normally held on the 3rd Sunday evening of the month. Confirmation Class begins this Sunday, September 17th at 6pm. We would like all parents to stay for the beginning of our first class so that we can talk as a group about the Confirmation Program, discuss some possible changes, and answer any questions. If you have a member of your family who should be a part of the Confirmation Program, please fill out the registration form below, give it to Pastor Suloff or send it to the church office or you can simply email Pastor Suloff.

Teachers-needed teacher 1

We are looking for additional volunteers to teach Sunday School and share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ with our children. Our Sunday School teachers rotate so that each teacher only leads one Sunday a month. Simply pick a week that works for you, pick an age group you’d like to work with, and sign up! Step by step curriculum, a roster of teachers with contact information, and the lesson schedule for the year are provided in the teachers packet and of course Pastor Suloff and Pastor Todd are always available to help and answer questions if you have a need. You can sign up now at the display in the back of the sanctuary  or simply email Pastor Suloff to share the life, love, and joy of Jesus Christ with the children of St. Peter’s!
