Saved by God's mercy and called by the Holy Spirit,
we share the Good News of Christ by reaching out in love.
Christian education is for everyone! The Lutheran tradition puts a high value on Christian education. At St. Peter, some of our particular strengths as a congregation are our Sunday School and Milestone Ministries.
The Board of Christian Education regularly meets at 6:30pm on the first Monday of the month. Their responsibiilities include facilitating educational programs, coordinating and equipping volunteers, and planning Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. If you have questions about any of our church's education ministries, feel free to contact our Education Coordinator, Miriam Bjornstad at firstname.lastname@example.org or 563-663-6558.

9:20-10:15am Sundays from September - May
The goal of our Sunday School program is to offer meaningful, engaging instruction in the Christian faith. We currently use SPARK! curriculum which has a strong focus on the Bible, helping children to become more familiar with God's Word to build a relationship with Jesus, the Living Word.
All children from age 4 through middle school are invited to join us for Sunday School classes which run from 9:20 - 10:15 am each Sunday from September - May.
Splash Play Group
One of our newest education ministries is a play group for the youngest in our congregation. If you have a child who is not quite old enough for regular classes, come join our Splash Play Group for children age 3 or younger. This group is for both parents and children. Questions? Contact Amy Welter for more information, email@example.com
Milestone Ministry is an intentional partnership in ministry between a child's parents and sponsors, and the congregation, throughout the young person's growing years.
Our Milestones are bases on the Baptismal promises parents made when they brought their child to receive God's grace in the gift of baptism. Milestones are way to help parents fulfill those promises.
For more detailed information about our Milestone Ministry, please contact Miriam Bjornstad, Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 563-663-6558
