Spending time with others is very important to a life in faith. Through weekly and seasonal fellowship offerings at St. Peter’s, we celebrate our holy interconnection as people of God. Each gathering tends to remind us of how much we actually need one another and is likely to bring refreshment to those who come. Most gatherings tend to include food, because we love to eat together!

You are encouraged to show up first and ask questions later — or ask questions first and then show up. Whatever your approach, your presence will be a gift and others will be glad to welcome you.

To learn more about fellowship and how to serve through offerings, contact Vestry Coordinator for Fellowship, Paige Ghareeb (paigeghareeb@mac.com, 704-947-8986).
