Among the confirmands at this joyous event will be Saint Peter’s parishioners Marta Rivera, Paul Keene, and Jamie Sasaki-Febvay. “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word” (2 Thess. 2:16-17).
Welcome to Saint Peter’s!
Saint Peter’s has been a place of ministry and mercy in the heart of Central Square for 175 years, and God willing, we have only just begun! We are committed to following the way of Jesus, a journey that sustains us amid the changes and chances of life.
We invite you to join us on a Sunday morning for lively worship with sermon and music, on a Wednesday evening for a contemplative service and our Adult Forum, on a Saturday afternoon as we feed our hungry neighbors, or perhaps at a concert or other event in our sanctuary. If what you read here speaks to you, then come and see!
Scenes from Our Church Life
On this date we will begin our summertime worship schedule, consisting of a single Sunday Eucharist at 10:00 am. The 8 am Sunday Eucharist, Sunday morning Bible study, Adult Forum, and Wednedsay Eucharist will be on vacation until the fall. We look forward to seeing you in your summertime wear–sandals, shorts, etc.
Tuesday, June 19, 6:00 pm: Come help our kids’ celebrate their many gifts: African drumming, singing, dancing and much more! This talent show caps the end of the Afterworks schoolyear and sends our kids into the summer with a big boost of love. A family potluck will follow the show.

Prayer of the Week
Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in your steadfast faith and love, that through your grace we may proclaim your truth with boldness, and minister your justice with compassion; for the sake of our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
