Please join our St. Peter family for worship service and other activities.
Community Thanksgiving Service
(Sunday, November 23 - NEW TIME: 7 p.m.)
- * Join us in giving thanks during a Community Thanksgiving Service that will be held at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church (on Buesching Road in Lake Zurich) on Sunday, November 23, 2014 at 7 p.m. (note that this is a new time).
Join Us for Hanging of the Greens
(November 29 & 30)
- * Hanging of the Greens time is here again, and we need everyone's help in making St. Peter UCC a beautiful place to celebrate Advent and the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas!
- * We will meet at the church at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 29, to move all the decorations to staging areas and assemble the trees. Doing these steps on Saturday (which, with enough help, should only take a couple hours) gives us a good head start for the actual Hanging of the Greens the next day.
- * Following 10 a.m. worship service on Sunday, November 30, the Hanging of the Greens will take place. A light lunch will be served for those helping decorate the church.
- * Come and join us as we work and fellowship together. If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Marshall.

"The Piecemakers" Quilting Ministry
- * If you've been wanting to make a difference with your quilting, "The Piecemakers" may be just what you're looking for. This ministry is open to everyone in the community (both church members and non-church members) who quilt, or wish to learn.
- * We meet on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- * Photos from various ministry events may be viewed at the Photos page of this website.
- * The ministry is in need of supplies. Even if you aren't a quilter, donations of cash or cotton fabric are gratefully accepted. We've been blessed with support from several quilters, as well as donations from The Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop in Fox River Grove, for which we are very thankful. But we'll always be about one "sew-in" ahead of an empty fabric cupboard, so your help would be appreciated.
- * Wish to learn more about this ministry, or make a donation? Contact Stephanie Matz at
