Adult Study Programs

Each Lent, we have a multi-week Lenten program addressing an aspect of Christian life. In 2019, the Lenten program focused on the Book of Common Prayer. In 2020, participants in the Lenten read and discussed In the Beginning: The Story of the King James Bible and How It Changed a Nation, a Language, and a Culture by Alister McGrath.

This year for Lent 2021, we will hold a virtual program on Zoom, “The Wisdom of the Desert Fathers and Mothers” led by our rector, The Rev. Dr. Craig A. Phillips. Click here to learn more about this 5-week class.

In addition to the weekly Adult Forums, additional adult study programs are occasionally offered. Starting in June 2020, our rector, the Reverend Dr. Craig Phillips, is offering an evening class (via Zoom) investigating the environment from which the New Testament emerged. The class will explore The New Testament in its World: An Introduction to the History, Literature, and Theology of the First Christians, by N.T. Wright and Michael Bird.

Care Team – Pastoral Care

The Care Team does just that – they provide pastoral care to parishioners and others in need. This may take the form of hispital visits, providing meals, driving someone to an appointment, prayers, and much more; click here for details.

Living Compass

St. Peter’s rector and a few of our parishioners have received training in the Living Compass program. Living Compass is a wellness program grounded in Scripture. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind.” Luke 10:2-7 and Deuteronomy 6:5.
