The Missions Committee meets on the first Wednesday night of each month at 6:30pm. You are invited to attend our monthly meeting where we monitor our outreach efforts and determine where funding is most needed. You may also access the Missions Gift Form to specify your donation.

Music Ministry

musicSince its earliest days, music and the arts have played a very important role in the life of the congregation of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church. We believe that returning some of the beauty of the God-made world to its creator is a sincere form of worship and that listening to, and singing beautiful music, lifts the soul nearer to God. In keeping with that rich tradition and heritage of musical excellence, the music program endeavors to offer learning opportunities for all of its participants. It also makes a special contribution to the cultural life of the greater Ocean City community and, in so doing, strives to enrich the lives of those it touches and to gather into the congregation those who believe in and work to advance the message of God’s redeeming love. There is a place in our music program for anyone who wishes to learn, grow, serve and praise God in song. Come and make Great Music in a Great Space.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi, which is sometimes called “meditation in motion,” promotes serenity through gentle movements that connect the body, mind and the spirit. These graceful movements help to promote health by improving balance, becoming more aware of your body, toning muscles to support joints, becoming more flexible, and reducing stress. Movements are good for arthritis, circulation, posture, breathing, digestion and helping to reduce pain.
We started in 2013 and just celebrated our 4th year and 600th class. All are welcome to join us on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 to 10:30 all year long. A beginners class has just started on Mondays at 10:45 – 11:45.
Each class begins and ends with scripture, all music are hymns and the day ends with prayer along with Joys and Concerns. Classes are nondenominational and everyone is welcome. Tai Chi does ministries by providing food for the food cupboard, making sandwiches for The Branches, sending volunteers to ACUP, and delivering flowers to shut-ins with a visit on Mondays. Our classes provide friendship, companionship, support in times of need, hugs, compassion and lots of love to everyone.  It’s a wonderful place to start your day.
Learning Tai Chi is a continuous process and a lifetime journey.
