Visiting a new church can sometimes be confusing, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions to help you feel more comfortable when you come to worship with us here at St. Peter’s.
Which service is right for me?
St. Peter’s currently offers three (four in the summer) different worship services in two different formats to meet different tastes and schedules. For a schedule and description of all our services click here.
Where should I park?
Spaces are reserved in the west parking lot (from the State Blvd. entrance) for those with disabilities or limited mobility. You will find general parking in the lot on the east side of the church (from the Maysville Rd. entrance) and in the lot to the south of the church.
What should I wear?
While there is no ‘dress code,’ worshipers typically dress casually for the Saturday (and Monday during the summer) service. Worshippers on Sunday morning range from casual to Sunday best.
What about my children?
Children are invited and welcome during all worship services! Nursery care, for ages 0 through 3 years, is available during the Sunday 10:30 am worship service. During the 5:00 pm Saturday and 10:30 am Sunday services, Kids of the Kingdom is offered for children age three through first grade during the sermon.
Should I give at the offering?
This is an opportunity in our service for us to be able to give back to God out of what He has first given to us. We do not expect visitors to participate unless they too are moved to express thankfulness to God for what He has done. We do ask that at the offering you fill out the Friendship Pad located in the red folder at the end of each pew.
Will I be able to follow along with the service?
Yes! Each of our services provide a bulletin with the entire content of the worship service. Hymns are projected on the screens at the front of the church.
What is communion all about and do I participate?
St. Peter’s teaches and believes that through the body and blood of Jesus Christ, offered under bread and wine in the Lord’s Supper, God gives to His children the forgiveness of sins. Since this is a sacred meal, St. Peter’s distributes the Lord’s Supper to communicants who have been prepared to receive it. If you have not been confirmed or hold to a confession of faith that differs from this church and the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, we ask that you refrain until you have spoken with one of our pastors.
