Worship

God is still speaking, and we are responding, as we join together in worship.

 

Sunday Worship Service

All are welcome to join the St. Peter United Church of Christ family for our Sunday morning worship service.

Worship service begins at 10 a.m. each Sunday.

Sunday morning worship has a traditional feel to it, and the flow of service generally remains the same from week to week – although, each week will bring its own emphasis and theme in music, liturgy and message. In addition to the pastor’s message, our Sunday service includes a short children’s sermon. Church youth contribute to worship by serving as acolytes, while adult liturgists assist the pastor in leading the service. The church Chancel Choir leads the congregation in traditional hymns, and special music is often provided by the handbell choir.

Communion, which is served on the first Sunday of each month, is brought to participants while they remain seated in the pews. The bread is distributed first, followed by the wine (or grape juice, for those who prefer). As each of the elements are distributed, participants hold the bread or wine until all have been served, and then the congregation partakes together at one time, as one body. Communion is open to any and all. No one is excluded from our communion table. We believe that Jesus welcomed all to his table, therefore we will exclude no one. Anyone who wishes to experience the presence of Christ in their lives is welcome to share in communion at St. Peter’s Church.
