share our joy
Established in 1867, we have been sharing the joy of Jesus Christ longer than any other congregation in Skokie. A fixture in the community, you walk, bike, or drive by us every day. Why not stop in? Let the beauty of our sanctuary and our worship fill you with joy.

Our Congregation is now listed with Ebay Giving Works as a registered non-profit organization. Find out more by clicking HERE.
CLOTHING DRIVE ALL MONTH LONG! Start cleaning out those closest now and start the new year off right! CLICK HERE for a list of acceptable/not acceptable donations. Savers will pay us 20 cents per pound for soft goods which includes clothes, shoes, bedding, towels, purses, belts, etc. These items should be clean and in decent enough shape for them to put in their resale shop. Bring your items to the office or on Sundays and call us with any questions, and thank you so much!
ANNUAL REPORT AND MEETING DATES - That time of year again, time to review the last year, talk about the next year and meet as a congregation! Reports are due to the office by January 13th. The Council will meet on January 20th and reports will be available then. The Congregational Annual Meeting will be January 27th after worship! We need a quorum of voting members, so if you are a member please plan to join us!
BRAINSTORMING SESSION JANUARY 8TH at 7 PM at St. Peter’s – a casual sharing of ideas and open discussion about what we can best do to grow the ministry of our church in 2019. Refreshments will be served! There is a short “goal-setting” resource to read ahead of time; if you need it please contact Jenn Schneider or Laura Olson.
UNDECORATE THE SANCTUARY JAN 10TH AT 7PM Help us as we transition into Epiphany!
