What to Expect

Finding Us

St. Peter is across the street from Lake Zurich High School on Church Street. Parking is directly behind the church, accessible from either Church Street or Lions Drive. For directions to our church, click here.

 

Accessibility

Our main building - including the sanctuary where we worship - is handicap accessible, with several handicap parking spaces right outside the entrance closest to the parking lot. There is also a covered area at the portico entrance to allow for easy pickup and drop off. There are no steps or curbs in the parking lot or within the church building itself. Access to our Fellowship Hall on the lower level is provided by an elevator.

Unfortunately, our Christian Education wing, where Children's classes are held, is not handicap accessible at this time. We strive to accommodate anyone interested in attending programming at the church and try to make necessary arrangements whenever possible. Please contact our church office if you have concerns about accessibility issues.

 

Come as You Are

Please come as you are to St. Peter. You will find people dressed up, dressed casually, and various stages in between! All are welcome here.

 

Once You’re Here

Both of our entrances open directly into the church lobby, so the sanctuary itself isn’t hard to find! Upon entering on a Sunday morning, you’ll be greeted by someone who can answer your questions and help direct you. They will also share with you some information on our church.

 

During the Service

As you enter the sanctuary, you’ll be handed the Sunday bulletin (order of service). Feel free to sit anywhere you like. At the end of each pew you’ll find a red pad where you can record your name, address, and phone number if you like. There are also cards you can use to request specific prayers or offer praise for your joys and concerns. Just put the completed cards in the collection plate.

 

Children are Welcome

Each Sunday during Children’s Time, kids are invited to come forward to interact with one of our pastors. Usually a story is told or object is shown related to the day’s scripture readings, and a prayer is offered. Afterward, on the first Sunday of the month, kids are either invited to our Prayground or asked to worship with their families. During the school year, there is Sunday School most other Sundays of the month. The Soft Space is also available in our Narthex for babies and tots who need to wiggle and giggle!

 

After the Service

We encourage visitors to stay for coffee, juice, and snacks after the service. Refreshments are in the Fireside Room, immediately across the hall from the sanctuary. During this time, you'll be able to get to know others in our community and learn more about our church. Please feel free to ask questions of anyone; we will be happy to meet you and share with you our impressions and experiences at St. Peter.
