Biblical garden is created and dedicated to Frank David Moorman, the son of city councilman Vernon Moorman. Frank Moorman, a parishioner of the church and former student of the Clifton School district, served in Vietnam. Posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor after the military determined he was killed in action, his name can be found on the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. However, in Clifton, a plaque in the biblical garden at St. Peter's reads "Biblical Garden, in Honor of Frank David Moorman."
Clifton Defense Council's request for the use of the Parish Hall as a shelter in case of an emergency approved. Dr. Joseph Jehl resigns his spot on the vestry and enlists in the U.S. Army, along with other parishioners and residents of Clifton, NJ.
The Rev. Grambs made a few "begging visits" to the board of education between 1933 and 1935 when the vote passed. To utilize the 450-pound bell, St. Peter's built a belfry to harmonize with the Church and the bell was installed. When it came time for the Parish to build a new church, the bell was preserved and hung in the new belfry, where it stands today.
The Rev. John G. Martin takes a leave to serve as a YMCA worker in World War I. In all, 35 men and 1 woman from St. Peter's enlist in 1917 to fight "the war to end all wars." In 1919, enlister Lloyd Bogart, makes a dramatic entrance when he walks into the office of his father, who had accepted the government's report that he had made the supreme sacrifice.
First service is held in the new church. Donations to the church include the altar and chandeliers from Trinity, Paterson; the font from St. John's, Passaic; and the bishop’s chair from either St. Paul's or Trinity.
The first meeting of the Dorcas Guild, a fundraising organization for the parish, is held at the home of Mrs. George Anderson. In attendance are: Mrs. Anderson, Mrs. R. Trevett, W. B. Hait, C. Williamson, Cook, Derbyshire, Withers, Kock, Woodruff, E. A. Smoth and Misses Green and Bessie Hait. By April 14, 1898, membership will reach 18.
The Dorcas Guild pays $72.66 for the lots on which the present church stands. They also form the Altar Guild and Choir Guild and open their homes for Students from General Theological Seminary who lead Sunday services.
