Youth and Families

St. Peter & St. Paul grows disciples of Jesus Christ in folks from birth to age 99 and everyone in between. We like to integrate all ages in ministry as much as possible. But we also recognize that each age group and demographic also has unique needs. Cobb County is filled with families, and St. Peter & St. Paul reflects our neighborhood.

We believe that children and youth are not the future of the church, they are the church NOW. Whenever appropriate, we seek to integrate children and youth into the rest of parish ministries, including reading scripture and prayers in worship, serving the chalice, on service ministries and elsewhere. A Youth Vestry Member has an important voice at Vestry meetings.

Our primary support for families comes in Children’s Ministry (infants through grade 5) and Youth Ministry (grades 6-12, and college age). Kids are also active in Acolytes, Children’s Choir, Youth Choir, and Scouting. Our Adult Christian Formation programs also address family issues in particular in their programs.

Here Are A Few of Our General Ministries and Adult Programs that Are of Interest to Families

Growing Christian Families group (for parents of newborns – 12th grade), Sunday School hour (Sundays 9:15 – 10:15 AM), downstairs in Room 6 Raising young kids can be a daunting task, but we needn’t do it alone. Come join us as we share our experiences and try to learn how God’s wisdom can help us raise compassionate, respectful children while also taking care of ourselves. Women’s Sunday School Class, Sunday School hours (Sundays 9:15 – 10:15am), downstairs in Room 12 Join the Sunday morning Women's Bible Study as we begin our new study: Psalms - Prayers of the Heart. The Psalms show us how to relate to God as we pray our doubt, fears, and anger. They show us how to respond to God in praise. Here we find the best place to explore who we are and what God means to us. Hope to see you on Sunday, August 6
