Parish Life Ministries
Fellowship Hour after the main service on Sunday morning is a great way to welcome, serve and get to know St. Peter’s parishioners as well as visitors. Fellowship hosts make and serve coffee, lemonade and tea. The hosts may also provide baked goods, fruit, cheese, or other finger foods. Beverages and other snacks are provided by the church.
On their scheduled day, the hosts generally arrive before the service to make the coffee and other preparations so they can attend the worship service. The three parts of hosting are set-up, serving, and clean-up. Our volunteer hosts take joy in welcoming others, preparing food (or buying food), and serving. It is a great way to introduce yourself to those you do not know well and to welcome a visitor to our church.
Fellowship & Fun
We love to have fun and be together at St. Peter's! And like most Episcopalians, we do this often around the table. There are opportunities throughout our year for parish-wide, family or adult gatherings. Some events include: Trivia Night, Shrove Tuesday Talent Show and Pancake Supper, Annual Picnic, Rally Day Celebration, Moms' Nights Outs, and the Women's Christmas Dinner. We welcome friends and family to enjoy these fun gatherings with us.
On the third Wednesday of each month, we provide a luncheon in St. Peter's Parish Hall for senior citizens in our parish as well as the community. Most months we have a speaker, special program or entertainment. In the past we have had the Elmwood Zoo Traveling program, Abington High School Elite Chorus, Sing-alongs, etc. ALL ARE WELCOME as long as you RSVP the week before our luncheon.
If you have questions or would like to RSVP, please contact Sue Gordon at email@example.com.
As a thriving church community, we are only able to revolve and evolve smoothly with the help of our wonderful volunteers. There are many areas where volunteers can help, including regular office duties such as: copying, helping with mailings and leaflets, answering phones, and Accounting Office tasks.
If you would like more information about volunteering at St. Peter’s office, please call our Church Office at (215) 887-1765.
St. Peter's Peeps (Formerly the Women's Group)
In order to honor the variety of ways that people identify, the Women's Group has changed its name to St. Peter's Peeps. Sunday mornings often do not provide enough time to talk with others on a deeper, more spiritual level. Historically, the Women’s Group has gathered to spend more time getting to know others at St. Peter’s. We develop stronger bonds with each other and the group as a whole. We support and love each other. We also support the life of St. Peter’s by participating and helping with some events.
All at St. Peter’s are welcome to come to our dinners, our retreat weekend, and/or other occasional events. Friends are also welcome. Just bring your love of St. Peter’s and all its members, your willingness to accept all for who they are, and participate as you are able.
Join us for our next gathering:
All are welcome to bring a dish to share for the next gathering, a "Pal-entines" Dinner to celebrate each other (our pals) on Friday, February 24th at 6pm in the Parish Hall. Sign up here to bring a dish; if you'd like to be on the group's email list, please email Anne Gibson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
