Welcome to Saint Peter's

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, there’s a place for you at Saint Peter’s!

Vacation Bible Service: #SaintPetersServes

Saint Peter’s is doing VBS a little different this year – instead of the traditional Vacation Bible School, we will be doing Vacation Bible Service! For four evenings our children and youth will learn to use a servant’s heart and give back to their community.

Art in the Lobby

Rita Mackintosh

Pottery created by Saint Peter’s parishioner Rita Mackintosh has been added to the lobby area not only to be admired, but to be used to hold our pencils, plants and papers. Rita’s goal as an artist is to make functional pots using basic shapes and add unique surface treatments to enhance this basic form which will evoke a desire to touch, hold and use.

Rita’s love of pottery began at an early age when she discovered earthy matt glazes and clean basic shapes in stoneware. She studied all aspects of pottery in many different studios, while taking time to raise a family, establishing the Calico Stoneware Pottery Shop in Fort Smith, working as a library tech, learning bookbinding and completing a BA in history.

Shaping clay on the potter’s wheel continues to be her passion. After retirement, Rita returned to clay work, taking classes at the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School in Little Rock. She now works at home in Conway, firing mid-range stoneware in an electric kiln. We hope you will touch, hold and use the beautiful and functional pieces of pottery displayed in the lobby and entrance ways to the church.
