  • FAITHBOOKING CLASS Lynn Brau, Poolesville local and Just Lunch volunteer is offer a class on Faithbooking here at St. Peter's. This class is open to both community and church members. Join us on Tuesday nights, May 7th - June 4thfrom 6:30-8:30 for a 5 week opportunity to record ways that you have seen God working in your life.  Each week, some of our time will be spent looking at Scripture (which demands that we record God's good deeds and pass them along to our children) and sharing stories, but most of our time will be spent in quiet reflection. Please sign up on the sheet in the entry by May 3rd. Bring a notebook, pen/pencil and Bible to the class. We'll meet in the Choir Room.

  • The St. Peter's Choir rehearses every Sunday following the 10:30 service in the choir room. We welcome all persons High School age and older to join us. The ability to read music is not a requirement and no previous choir experience is necessary. The only requirements are a love for music and the ability to commit to weekly rehearsal. The Sunday rehearsal time is designed to be ideal for those who cannot commit to a weeknight rehearsal as well as parents who may have children attending Sunday school after the 10:30 service. For more information, please contact Daniel Weatherholt, Director of Music at
  • St. Peter's Preschool Bible Storytime is back! Please join us every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.  We will start each session off with a few lively songs for the children and then enjoy two Bible stories.  Each session will conclude with a simple craft and a small snack.  We will meet in the Children's Chapel at St. Peter's. If you have friends or neighbors with preschool-aged children, please share this information about Bible Storytime, so they can join in the fun this winter.
