Founded in 1858, St. Peter's is an Episcopal/Ecumenical/earth-based congregation. We are participatory, active and committed to the often-uncomfortable challenges of inner and communal spiritual growth. We read scripture through the lens of the current moment and our location. We practice hospitality. We believe involving ourselves in the struggle for justice is spiritual work. We are called to speak truth to power and we are called to solidarity.We strive to walk this path together as we build beloved community.
