Formation is a churchy word for listening to God's call for your life. It involves learning, listening and shaping one's life toward God.
In "formation" we go deeper into our faith and relationship with God. We spend time individually and in community listening for God's voice. We ask fundamental questions like "Who are becoming?" and "What is God asking of us at this time and in this place?"
With the support of community, we shape our lives according to God's call.

Our April book is The Last Week by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan.
In preparation for Holy Week, we will read The Last Week. Biblical scholars, Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan, join forces to explore what we know about Jesus' last week primarily through the lens of the gospel of Mark, and its connection to how we celebrate Holy Week.
Our next book discussion will be May 7th @ 5 pm. We will read Samira Mehta's The Racism of People Who Love You: Essays on Mixed Race Belonging.
Joan Chitister's Scared by Struggle, Transformed by Hope

Children & Youth
At St. Peter’s, we welcome the engagement of children and youth as part of our church community.
All children and youth are encouraged to join us in worship and participate in the services. This includes actively participating in the service as ushers or acolytes, singing, and helping out
We also work hard to keep young people engaged, with a special focus on community service for kids of all ages. We’ve filled and given away backpacks to local schoolchildren in need, put together Hope Bags for the homeless, and in recent years have taken our teens on summer mission trips to the Navajo Nation in Crownpoint, New Mexico. And parish youth are welcome in all of our outreach programs, not just the programs designed for kids.
We plan activities and events to be intergenerational, which means children, youth, and adults participating together.
We partner with Epiphany Episcopal Church, San Carlos for youth group opportunities.
