About Our Church

 

 

Who We Are


St. Peter's is a vibrant and growing congregation in the middle of the Montgomery County Agricultural Preserve.  The town of Poolesville is part rural small town and part bedroom community for the greater Washington DC metropolitan area.  While those of us who live in the preserve and the area around Poolesville are used to the quiet and beauty of these lands, we can be in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the metro area in a matter of minutes.

 

As a result of this unique geography, St. Peter's is a unique parish.  Our members are a mix of folks, some of whom have been in this area (and parish) for generations on end, while others are new to the area, coming from all over the country to work in the Washington region.  We have farmers, teachers, professionals, stay at home mothers and everything in between.  What we all have in common is our love of Jesus and a desire to fulfill the mission and ministry he left the Church; to make God's love known and reconcile this broken world to unity in Christ.. 

 

Our parish bridges the historic and modern aspects of our community to create an open and welcoming place where all can belong and becom.  Whether you a just beginning an exploration of faith or are further along the path, we are an open and affirming Church where all are welcome.
