Join us on Sundays

St. Peter’s is excited to offer Dig In, an interactive digital curriculum designed to create deeper Bible experiences for kids.

Each week features a Bible story, music with songs and movements, a talk-about video, games, and crafts. Activities are planned and taught by experienced volunteer teachers.
In all classes, the kids will come to know Jesus rather than just hear about Jesus.

We hope to see you and your family on Sunday. Bring a friend to meet Jesus with you!

Whitney Hanna is now in charge of the nursery, which is located downstairs, at the St. Peter`s United Methodist Church. The nursery is open every Sunday from 9:00 AM until 12:15 PM. There are toys, books and games for young kids, from birth to four years old. We also have wonderful volunteers that help staff the nursery, but we are always looking for more, so please come visit us and sign up to help work with our adorable kids.


Whitney recently completed classes at Kean University where she majored in Community Recreation. She is currently completing her internship at Egg Harbor Township Recreation Center and will graduate in May. Whitney especially likes to work with preschool age kids doing recreational activities and crafts, so she really enjoys her time in the nursery.
