The people of St. Peter’s believe the Christian journey of faith requires us to keep growing and learning. The church offers a wide range of educational and fellowship opportunities to support and nurture people in their faith journey. We seek to form, inform, and transform by developing and promoting Christian Education that gives all children of God, regardless of age, a chance to grow in faith.
The goal of adult Education is to draw people into a genuine, personal relationship with God by providing the tools that will motivate us as Christians, encouraging a better knowledge of scriptures, and promoting spiritual growth. Each of us is a partner with God, through Jesus Christ, in the creation and nurturing of Christian disciples. How exciting is that?
We all have goals. If someone wanted to be a doctor, they would go to school to do so. If you wanted to play the piano, you would take piano lessons. So why do we think differently when it comes to God? If we truly want to know God, we must go to His Word. We must commit and have a desire to know Him better through studying the scriptures. Just like anything else we may want in our lives, if we want a close relationship with our Lord, we must put forth the effort to make it happen.
