History

2019.07 church front view 2_edited.jpg

Saint Peter the Apostle Anglican Church incorporated in April, 2010 in the home of Dr. Warren Smith, one of the founding members. St. Peter’s joined the Anglican Province of America (APA), a continuing Anglican Church using traditional doctrine and liturgy.

 

Both Holy Communion and Morning Prayer Services were held in private residences and the Kingsport Renaissance Center.  With God’s grace, we located and purchased the current location at 3321 Thornton Drive in 2012. Since purchasing the building, we have created a beautiful church with a sanctuary, fellowship hall, nursery, complete kitchen and clergy office.

For more information on the APA see our Digging Deeper page.

Our Priest

Fr. Scott Greene was raised in East Tennessee in a Christian Family.  After graduating from Sullivan East High School, he studied history at Northeast State Community College for two years.  He then joined the US Marine Corp before marrying his high school sweetheart, Maryl.  While stationed in Cherry Point, NC they attended an Anglican Church which led to God's calling in his life to the priesthood.  He also completed his undergraduate degree in Christian Counseling online at Liberty University. 

 

After the Marines, Fr. Scott attended the Seminary at Nashotah House in Wisconsin.   After his first year in Seminary, he was ordained a deacon.  After completion of his Masters in Divinity at Nashotah House and his ordination to the priesthood, Fr. Scott accepted the position of Vicar at St. George Anglican Church in Macomb, IL. 

The Greene's first daughter, Amber, was born during their time in Macomb.  In 2020, Fr. Scott and his family moved back home to East Tennesee where their second daughter, Audree, was born.  Fr. Scott started serving St. Peter the Apostle Anglican Church in November 2020.  Currently Fr. Scott serves St. Peter's as Vicar in addition to his full time secular job at Tri-Cities Christian Academy. 

Fr. Scott and his family moved to an apartment very close to St. Peter's and are excited about what God is doing in the Tri-Cities area!

 

Our Community

In addition to Sunday morning services (either Holy Communion or Morning Prayer), we have an active Christian education program with topics ranging from the study of various Bible books to the history of Anglicanism.  Other activities include a weekly online prayer group,  Women’s Bible Study group, congregational luncheons, and visiting ill or elderly members, providing them with meals as needed. We also support the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child and Shades of Grace Ministry in  Kingsport.

 

We invite all to join our Christian Family as we worship the Lord and enjoy the company of other Christians. We strive to love one another because our Lord Jesus told us that “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35).
