We take the Arts seriously
at St. Peter's.

The motto of our Sacred Arts Ministry is "to encourage and facilitate the creative spirit innate to every human being."

We currently display around 5 exhibits each year ranging from model trains, to floral paintings and prints, angels, and an ultimate Christmas Village, just to name a few.

St. Peter's is also home to some of the finest musical offerings in Central KY. Each Advent our Musical Meditation series features noted musicians from the region and beyond. Our pipe organ is top-of-the-line, and state-of-the-art: Installed in 1951 and digitally augmented in 2016, the Hinkle Family Organ and Carol Aulick Lynn console are true works of art.

Christian Education for Children & Youth

Sundays at 9:30
In the youth center on the basement level

Currently, St. Peter’s has 18 women that are Daughters of the King.  They follow a simple rule of prayer and are committed to service.  Many members knit prayer shawls, which are then blessed in church and taken as symbols and an extension of the embrace of Christ to individuals. The DOK meets the 3rd Saturday of each month @ 10 a.m., Sept. - May.
