  SUNDAY SCHOOL meets Sunday mornings at 10:20 AM beginning
  the third Sunday of September through the third Sunday in May.
  Besides an excellent education in Bible history and it's relevance to
  today, Sunday School children are active in mission projects like the
  annual Christmas gift tree for those with less, tying lap blankets for
  our shut-ins, making decorative place mats for Lazarus House
  (transitional living center in St. Charles), adding a festive flavor to our
  Palm Sunday worship, or collecting monies for "Wells, Chickens and
  Cows" in third world countries.  Sunday School sponsors an annual
  Bible Olympic contest testing their gained Bible knowledge.  Sunday
  School also hosts two congregational potlucks during the year.  Ages
  3 through 12th grade are involved in Sunday School.

  ADULT BIBLE CLASS meets in the Meeting Room on Sunday
  mornings during the Sunday School hour.  There is a Wednesday
  Morning Bible study group at 9:30 AM meeting September through
  May.  Men's Bible Breakfast meets in Hampshire's Rose Garden
  Restaurant the first Saturday of each month from September through
  May.  See the calendar page for the schedule of home Bible studies
  meeting in small groups in the comfort of members' homes.

  MEMBERSHIP CLASSES are also called Confirmation Class.  You
  don't have to be interested in joining the church to join these sessions.
  Membership classes review the basics of the Christian faith taught in
  Scripture and summarized by the Ten Commandments, the Apostles'
  Creed, the Lords Prayer, Baptism and Holy Communion.  Along the
  way we hear God's answers to such questions as "What is the purpose
  of my life?  Where am I going?  Am I loved?  What happens after
  death?  Will I have eternal life?"  Adult membership classes are about
  15 weeks in length.  They are taught by our pastor and are organized
  whenever there is interest.  Youth Confirmation Classes are given
  over a two year period from September through April for youth in
  Grades 7 and 8.  These classes are held on Wednesday evenings at
  6:00 PM.

  VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is a big event at St. Peter's.  V.B.S.
  usually happens during the last full week of June.  Enthusiastic
  sessions are held in the mornings.  It's a fun way for children to make
  new friends as they learn about their Friend and Savior, Jesus.

  See our link to LITTLE SAINTS PRESCHOOL now in it's
  eighteenth season.

  PRAYER WARRIORS - no, this is not a Bible Class, but our
  membership is committed to taking your petitions to the Lord in
  prayer.  Call our church office with your prayer requests or e-mail
