Why Small Groups? Starting at a new church can be daunting. Maybe you've fallen away and want to get back into a community of people who are traveling the spiritual road together. Maybe you've never been part of a church before and you want to give it a shot. Maybe you're not even sure you want to be a Christian, but you want to see what it's all about anyway and you're wondering where to start. Start here. Small groups are opportunities to meet with others from St. Peter's outside Sunday worship to discuss spiritual issues and learn the Bible. Along the way you'll realize you've picked up some new friends too. The small groups are formed around age affinity, but feel free and welcome to attend whichever meeting works best for you!
