Those seeking to become members of St. Peter’s must complete the catechumenal process. The catechumenal process at St. Peter’s seeks to look at three key components of a Jesus-shaped life: Common Faith, Common Worship, and Common Service. The classes may be taken in any order and do not all need to be completed at once. Childcare is available. Please request it when you register for each class.
Common Faith: Grounded in the Gospel
Sundays, February 3–March 24 | 6:30-8:00pm
This class provides an introduction to the official catechism of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and, thus, to its official teaching. To Be A Christian: An Anglican Catechism focuses on the Apostles’ Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, and The Ten Commandments (what a Christian should believe, how a Christian should pray and how a Christian should live). The ACNA considers knowledge of these things essential to discipleship.
Common Worship: Introducing Anglicanism
Thursdays, February 14–March 28 | 6:30-8:00pm
Introducing Anglicanism is designed to acquaint newcomers to Anglican worship as set forth in the Book of Common Prayer. The class considers the nature of Christian worship, the theology of the sacraments, the significance of baptism, the theological and spiritual meaning of the Eucharist, the Daily Office, and Anglican music.
Common Service: Network
Saturday, January 26 | 9:00am–12:00pm
Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? God has equipped each one of us with spiritual gifts which He intends for us to use to build up the Church and to be His witnesses in the world. Network is a morning workshop designed to help you discern your spiritual gifts so you can put them to use in the service of the Lord and His people.
