With an extended hand and a joyful spirit we welcome you. We are blessed by your visit, and we believe God has directed our paths to intersect. We’re delighted to know you, and we’re excited to share the marvelous ways in which God’s hand is at work at St. Peter’s. We believe you will discover that our fellowship is truly a family, rich in relationships that matter. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we share in our fellowship, and we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth. We reach out to you as well. Our doors are open.
Frequently Asked Questions
When you visit
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with an usher when you visit.
When are services?
Services are Currently Suspended due to COVID-19.
Monday - Friday: 9:15 am to 1 pm and by appointment
What should I wear?
You should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. Some of our members dress up, some of our members are casual and wear jeans. Some believe that since God gives us God's best, we should wear our best for God. Dress up, dress down, dress however, we will just be happy to see you here.
How do I get to St. Peter's Episcopal Church?
Saint Peter's is a block off Main Street in Fort Atkinson. From South Main, turn onto 3rd Street heading West. You should actually see the cream colored stucco of the building from the intersection. We are on the corner of Merchants Avenue and 3rd Street. We do not have a parking lot, but there are plenty of street spots along Merchants and Third Avenue next to the church.
Where do my children go?
We strongly believe that children belong in worship. Children are not just the future of the church, they are the NOW of the church. Weekly we will provide "Treasure Boxes" for the children and have enough for visitors. These Treasure Boxes will have activites, colors, and small trinkets for children to look forward to receiving. Mother Mindy will give a brief children's message for children.
We do have a nursery area in the lower level for children if any familes need a retiring area. Because we want kids in worship, we do not currently have nursery attendants. However, if families express a need of nursery attendants, we will work on hiring qualified staff with clean background checks right away.
Am I expected to put money in the offering?
Expected to? NO! Invited to? Absolutely, but only if you want to. While visitors are never expected to put money in the offering, there will be a collection plate passed during the offertory. The offertory is our opportunity to give back to God a portion of that with which God has blessed us. Whether anyone can give monetarily or not, everyone is welcome!
I have a hearing problem. Is there any special assistance?
We do not have assistive devices for those who are hearing impared, but we would be open to purchasing devices upon request. When we say everyone is welcome, we truly mean everyone!
