Welcome to St. Peter’s United Church of Christ

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. – St. Thomas Aquinas


No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here — to explore your faith, to meet new people, and to strengthen your personal relationship with God.
