St. Peter’s parishioners have a broad variety of experience and interests that not offer care to others beyond our doors, but to members of our parish community. We provide volunteer leadership for the ministries and operations of our church. We invite you to join in our fellowship of service.
Acolytes carry the cross (crucifer), the Gospel, or torches and assist with other duties to enhance the worship experience at St. Peter’s. The youth of our parish who have a desire to be an active participant in our worship services are encouraged to become acolytes.
Volunteers work together to ensure that the church buildings and grounds are well maintained and that they present a well-tended appearance for all parishioners’ to be proud of and to enjoy. They plan and schedule any maintenance repairs or upgrades that are required for the buildings, organize work parties to address minor maintenance projects using the talents of parishioners on the committee, and oversee contractors work when outside help is needed.
Those with an interest in and knowledge of building maintenance, gardening and interior design are welcome to join in these efforts. Those who enjoy planting, landscaping, planning and caring for gardens find natural involvement here.
Keeping parishioners and those in the greater Savannah community informed about St. Peter’s programs and ministries requires journalistic, PR, photographic, marketing and technological skills. We produce a quarterly parish newsletter, maintain this website, alert parishioners to weekly information via e-mail, publicize concerts and our youth programs, and provide information for our Sunday bulletin. We welcome assistance in each of these areas.
Parishioners of the parish provide financial oversight of our budgets and projects supported by the annual Every Member Pledge Campaign. The Endowment Board oversees disbursements of an Endowment Fund that enable the parish to more completely fulfill its mission. The Board accepts gifts and bequests and oversees investment policies as well as the distribution of funds. These committees determine their own meeting schedules.
The Memorial Garden is a resting place for congregants who desire to have their ashes interred there. It is also a place for peaceful reflection.
This committee looks for ways to strengthen our understanding of, and commitment to, stewardship as intentionally serving each other and our community through sharing of our time and talent, as well as giving of our treasure.
