WHO WE ARE

St. Peter's United Church of Christ


Our Mission


St. Peter's United Church of Christ seeks to be the body of Christ, by establishing a loving fellowship, empowered with God in our midst: proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ; and serving others in need.

Our Vision

 

Journeying together in faith, we are united in spirit and inspired by God's love; a community of faith and fellowship, seeking to serve others, welcome all, and love everyone.

We are apart of the United Church of Christ

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Come as you are


We want you to come just as you are. When you walk through our doors you may see people in suits and ties, but you will also see people in jeans and t-shirts. We want to make sure when you visit you are comfortable and that is all that matters to us. As long you are come through our doors, we want to make sure you feel loved and welcomed. If you ever need anything, always feel free to connect with us. We love to hear from our new visitors. 


Our worship services are more traditional in nature but with both hymns and contemporary music sung and a relaxed feel. 


Children of all ages are welcome in worship. We offer a number of ways for you and your little ones to participate in worship and community. Every week there are children’s bulletins available. You are also invited to use the Pray-Ground which is located in rear of the sanctuary. The Pray-Ground has comfortable seating for young children, quiet toys, books, and art supplies to keep them engaged. We also have a nursery available for all children preschool age and younger in the basement of the church.
