To lead and teach the next generation to love the Lord with all their hearts, souls, and minds and to love others God’s way.
Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation. —Joel 1:3

Nursery and Childcare

We offer nursery and childcare at the 9:00 and 11:00 am Sunday services and during many scheduled events. Nursery staff provide safe care along with age-appropriate lessons and activities.

St. Peter’s Nursery Staff Seek to Build a Firm Foundation

Each week in the nursery, we begin by reminding the children the definition of the theme for that week. Next we recite a Bible verse, read a story, and do an activity to reinforce the theme. We want the lessons to help them be the best Christians they can be, in real ways, which means helping them interact with each other with love.


KIDS’ Church (Kids in Divine Service)

St. Peter’s offers KIDS’ Church for children 4 years – 4th grade.

Sundays at the 9:00 am service, children start in church with their family, then go to the Family Life Center during the sermon.

For the 11:00 am service, children go directly to the FLC while their families go to the Sanctuary.
At both services, children return in time for Communion with their parent(s). Questions? Contact Kimi Hudson.

Middle School Youth Group

Wednesday Nights 6:00- 8:00 pm Led by Kevin Bartle
Parents and middle school students… come out and join us as we play sports, develop friendships and build lasting relationships in a Christ-filled community! Our adult and high school leaders are deeply invested in ministering to middle school students. Have a blast playing various games, followed by beautiful student-led worship with a scripture-centered message and small group time that allows the students to dissect the message.
We meet in the Family Life Center, and there is no cost. All middle school students are welcome to attend! Questions? Contact Kevin.
