About Our Church

What to Expect When Visiting St. Peter's UCC

If you are new to St. Peter’s UCC, here is what you can expect before your visit.  Below is some information we hope will help you get acquainted with us and make your visit more enjoyable.

What is the style of worship?

Our worship style is traditional, but casual. Church service is led by a worship team that includes our pastor, our music director, a choir, ushers, and lay leaders.  The service begins at 10:00 am and usually ends around 11:00 am.

What kind of sermon messages will I hear?

Sermons are topical, Bible based, and usually follow the UCC liturgical calendar .  The messages are meant to be practical so that you can walk away with applications for your own life.

What do you offer for children?

You are welcome to keep your children with you during the service, or they can join other children for an age-related Bible teaching in our Sunday school. Our teachers are wonderful and very caring.

How should I dress?

Most people wear casual dress clothes or jeans.  We appreciate modesty but you can dress up or down – whatever you’re comfortable with.

Ushers will greet and direct you

Ushers will greet you at the door and direct you to the sanctuary, or restrooms. If you have a question or need assistance, don’t hesitate to ask them.

Be patient and loving with yourself. You weren’t meant to be your biggest critic, but your biggest fan.
