January 20, 2019: In light of the forecast of snow for this weekend, the regular 8:00 am and 10:30 am services of worship for Sunday, January 20, have been cancelled. Please check this website for information about the resumption of our regular worship times.
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
The Reclaiming Jesus Statement
Saint Peter's endorses "Reclaiming Jesus, A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis," a statement endorsed by Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and leader of the Episcopal Church USA, and other prominent religious leaders on Ash Wednesday, 2018.
Prayer of the Week
Father in heaven, who at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit: Grant that all who are baptized into his Name may keep the covenant they have made, and boldly confess him as Lord and Savior; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
January 21, 11:00 am: Saint Peter’s will again be hosting Cambridge’s celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King. The event will include readings from Dr. King’s works on peace, justice, and transformation; vocal music by Veronique Epiter, Christina DeVaughn, and members of area Episcopal churches; and remarks by Ellen Semonoff, who has served as Assistant City Manager for Human Services for the City of Cambridge since 2004. An informal lunch will follow in the church undercroft, from 12:45 to 1:45 pm.
Wednesday, January 16, 7:15-8:15 pm: “For freedom Christ has set us free.” What does this freedom encompass? And do we need to earn it, or is it God’s free gift? Join us for a discussion of this key point in Galatians, led by Bill Edwards. Come at 6:30 pm to share in a simple dinner before the forum begins. To enter, ring the doorbell at the 13 Sellers St. entrance of the church.
Saint Peter’s choir is always happy to receive new members. No audition is required, and you don’t need to have any special training. If you love to sing, you will be welcome. To join the choir, contact our Minister of Music, Paul Keene, firstname.lastname@example.org. Choir practice is Thursdays 6:45 – 8 pm, and the choir warms up at 10 am prior to the second sunday worship service.
