The youth here are involved in many activies such as bowling and doing service projects that help the community and people in need elsewhere. Fund raisers go to the effort as youth from Trinity in Richmond and other churches join together. They meet to discern their spiritual side and have fun in the process. There are a variety of summer camp options which include youth from across Michigan. The Youth and Family Life Minister is Tamara Howes who can be reached at the church office.
Join the congregation for coffee, cookies, and fellowship after the 9:30 Sunday service. Cake is served for special occasions like baptisms. Watch out for the Sunday School crowd running for their cookies!
DECKING the HALLS
Early in December members of the congregation are invited to help decorate the sanctuary. There's a place for everything, and everything is in its place. Help take down the decorations in January for another chance to mingle, meet new people, or talk with friends.
DINING AND FELLOWSHIP
There are various opportunities to join us for pot luck meals. St. Peter's hosts a Wild Game Dinner where people bring wild game ranging from deer to pheasant. Others bring a side dish or dessert to share. There is also an ecumenical progressive dinner that takes diners from one church to another. Included are St. Paul Episcopal, First United Methodist, and the UCC.
There are various opportunities to explore scripture, spirituality, and the nature of God. Sunday morning studies are scripture based. A Wednesday morning group has discussed books such as The Name of God is Mercy by Pope Francis and October 31, 1517 Martin Luther and the Day that Changed the World by Martin Marty. A Wednesday evening group meets at 6:30 and coincides with confirmation class. Currently the group is discussing Rob Bell and some of his videos. Contact Pastor Ken for more info.
There are several opportunities to share the gift of music with others and the congregation. Choir meets on Thursday at 7:00 pm during the school year. We work hard and laugh often. Hand chimes is another opportunity to not only use talents but also develop talent you may not even know exists. No experience necessary.
This outdoor fall event features food, a silent auction, polka music, activities for kids, and, oh, yes, beer. Come to enjoy the festivities Saturday of the second weekend of October. The Friday before features a corn hole tournament with plenty of competition.
Anyone interested in a prayer ministry is welcome to join the prayer chain. The prayer chain ministers to the members of our congregation, to the city of St. Clair and the surrounding communities, as well as the world at large.
