    Well Walk Sunday, October 4

    Last Sunday, kids brought home a "water cup" that they can fill with change/dollars and bring back to church over the next 2 weeks to support ELCA Walk for Water project, which provides clean water to those in need. This Sunday at 9:15 a.m. kids will start in the sanctuary with their classes and then take a short "Well Walk" with their class before returning to their classrooms. The community of faith at St. Peter is welcome to join us on this walk. 

    Sunday School is held each Sunday from 9:15-10:15. Children who turn 3 by September 15 through high school are able to attend Sunday School. All classes (except Jr. High and High School) will start in the Sanctuary. Three-year-olds through Kindergarteners will end their morning in their classrooms while 1st-4th Graders will end Sunday School in the Sanctuary.
