All in worship

Holy Week and the Tri Diuum

.

If this is the case, then Holy Week becomes the church’s opportunity to experience Easter Sunday in the most powerfully meaningful way.

Q&A With Worship Servant Janet Okerman

.

Ever wonder who it is that makes each worship service at Saint Peter possible (in addition to Pastor Dave that is)? There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into a successful Sunday morning. Over the next few months, we will talk to volunteers on the Saint Peter Worship Servant Team, the Band and Choir and the Tech Team so that we can all get to know who leads us at worship.

Our congregation has always understood worship to be among the most central components of our life together. We also consider it important to encourage strong participation from volunteer worship leaders at every worship service. This makes a very clear statement about how we understand worship.
