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.



JEFFERSON COUNTY IS IN THE GREEN ZONE as of Friday, May 29. As we gather in the church sanctuary for corporate worship every Sunday, we will continue to observe the guidelines of the state and CDC by wearing masks and maintaining social distance.
