Spiritual Growth: Adult Formation


We believe learning and fellowship are essential ingredients for spiritual formation, and our church has a mission to provide opportunities for members to grow in Christ. In addition to offering occasional and seasonal sessions on special topics and interests, we offer the following regular opportunities for our members to learn about and share their faith and practices.

Sunday Morning Meditation at St. Peter’s is a time for people to come together to meditate. Following the reading of one of the spiritual masters or a passage from the Bible, the group will sit quietly, either reflecting on the passage read, or simply sit in silence for a brief period. Currently it is being held in St. Margaret Hall between 9:15 and 9:45 am on Sunday mornings, except over the summer.

Sunday Morning Bible Study is devoted to a deeper study of the Sunday Lessons. Those who are interested come together and study as a group, sharing insights from daily life and experience. One of the Clergy is always on hand to offer guidance and direction. Currently it is held in the Father Fifer Room between 9 and 9:45 am, except over the summer.

TED Talks for thinking adults to discover the connection between Christianity and our culture. Join us in listening to riveting talks by remarkable people expressing ideas worth sharing. Cutting edge ideas from many fields are offered to expand our traditional thinking while offering insight, hope and inspiration. Those who are interested can join us at 11:15 a.m. (during Godly Play and Coffee Hour) in the Father Fifer Room.

Mid-Week Bible Study and Fellowship, led by lay persons, grew out of the need for more fellowship and in-depth learning of the Bible. The group meets on Tuesday’s at 7 PM in various homes, and they study the lectionary lessons for the following Sunday. This informal setting is conducive to members discussing their faith and how it is lived in the context of their daily lives. The study and fellowship culminates in the celebration of the Eucharist.
