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.
