Welcome to St Peter's UCC
An Open and Affirming Congregation
We’re so glad you’ve decided to check us out!
We are a very friendly bunch, and we love to meet new people and share new experiences with them! The best way to make new friends is to get to know each other a little bit, so here are a few things you should know about US!
First, we are a part of the United Church of Christ, which means we are passionate about our faith and open in our thinking. We believe in a Triune God who loves EVERYONE, no matter who they are or where they are on life’s journey. We invite all Christians and seekers after God to partake of the Lord’s Supper with us regardless of denominational background.
The next important thing to know about us is that we are an Open and Affirming congregation. This means that we believe that since we’re all made in God’s image, all people are created equal, and are to be treated, loved, and welcomed equally, regardless of gender, orientation, race, economic status, or physical or mental ability. We welcome all people to share our Church in worship, marriage, baptism, funeral, and fellowship. This is the promise we make to you … all are welcome.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
As an Open and Affirming Congregation, we do whatever we can to participate and support the LGBTQ+ people in Skokie. We provide a safe and welcoming place to worship, and affirm every person's right to be who they are.
Military Outreach USA
As a Military Outreach USA congregation, St. Peter's collects goods, food, and money for our veterans, including stocking the Jesse Brown Food Pantry and providing supplies for vets transitioning into homes.
From St Patrick's Day Bingo to Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for hungry families, St. Peter's supports our local families with caring and love. Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Rummage Sale, and Holiday Craft Fair are other ways we connect with these families in our community.
