St. Peter's by-the-Sea
Episcopal Church
Service Descriptions
    At St. Peter's, the variety of services offers you choices according to your preferences and your schedule as well as varying
    opportunities to take an active part.

    Because Jesus was sacrificed for everyone, it is the practice at St. Peter's that all who wish to do so may come forward during
    Communion.  Those who do not want to receive the bread or the wine, or both, may cross their arms over their chest and receive a
    blessing from the celebrant.
    The Sunday morning Sunday School program offers children
    introductions to Christian concepts and bible study, tailored to their age.

    Morning Prayer
    Morning Prayer once was the chief Sunday service in most Anglican
    churches on three out of four Sundays, the First Sunday usually being a
    celebration of Holy Communion. This practice has not continued because
    the eucharist has been recognized as the "principal act of Christian worship
    on the Lord's Day" in most parishes (see BCP, p. 13), However, Morning
    Prayer is clearly designated as a daily service for the worship of the church.
    This usage reflects the ancient tradition of the Daily Office.   
    Holy Eucharist Rite 1.  This is the Eucharist service as it appeared in the
    1928 version of the Book of Common Prayer.  It is spoken; there is no music.

    Holy Eucharist Rite 2.
    The Rite 2 service is from a more recent version of the Book of Common
    Prayer and uses more contemporary language.  On Sundays, coffee hour
    follows in the The Meeting Place (adjacent to the church) and is considered to
    be a continuation of the service, in the form of fellowship.
