About Us

We are a church that is dedicated to serving others and serving God. This is the core of our vision and our mission.

Contact Us

We would love to hear from you. Feel free to give us a shout and connect with us.


"As the pastors of this unique faith community, we care deeply about the people and creation around us. Our congregation is as vibrant and inviting as the Native Habitat that surrounds our building and as bold as the solar panels on our roof. We hope you will join us on this adventure we call faith.


Each of us, exactly as we are--and as we are still becoming-- are named beloved by the One who created us. All are welcome as together we endeavor to be and create the Kin-dom of God. We listen deeply for what the Spirit is calling us to be and to do in this world. We wrestle with questions more than we offer answers. We like it that way; we believe Jesus did the same thing!


May you feel the presence of the Spirit and remember that you are loved as you explore both faith and doubt.  Perhaps your journey will lead you to Carmel, IN. If it does, we hope to meet you."

Lori Bievenour and Rebecca Lockwood

Upcoming Events 



Come and get involved!


SPECIAL COLLECTION: THE CHRISTMAS FUND - Many retired pastors (and their beloved spouses) faithfully served UCC congregations but received low salaries. We offer our help to these dedicated church workers by contributing to The Christmas Fund. St. Peter's is no longer receiving third party donations since we do not have the staff to process these kinds of transactions. However, we hope you will continue to support this important ministry and send your gift directly to: 

The Rev. Krista Betz

The Pension Boards

Room 1020

Please make your check payable to: "UCBMA"


BLUE CHRISTMAS WORSHIP SERVICE - The Christmas season is approaching, but sometimes Christmastime isn't always a joyous celebration for everyone. For those enduring hardship or struggle, celebrating just might not be the most comforting thing. Come join our Blue Christmas service. It's a place where we can be one with God and find a calming place. Service will include calming songs and a space for those who need to grieve, pray or just be at peace. If you'd like someone to talk to, or for someone to just listen, we encourage you to stay after service. Retired clergy and other members of our church will be here to listen. Our Blue Christmas service will be held Wednesday, December11th at 7pm.


CHRISTMAS IN CINCINNATI- Join us as we travel to Washington UCC in Cincinnati to help set up and host their annual Christmas Shoppe. It's a weekend of hard work and Christmas Spirit. Come for the whole weekend or just part! December 13-15! Sign up on Realm. Email Becca with questions.

CARMEL UMC FOOD PANTRY SPECIAL PROJECT - We continue to collect items for baking (flour, sugars, baking soda, spices, chocolate chips, peanut butter, marshmallows, etc) in December. We are also doing a special project! Please pull out your favorite holiday or family recipe and submit it to Liz Chandler (GentleMomLC@gmail.com) AND buy the shelf stable ingredients for that recipe. Donate the ingredients in the collection bin on the Missions rack outside the pastors' office. The recipes will be gathered, and a booklet created to give families who come for assistance from the food pantry. Please have your recipes submitted by Dec 15. Thank you!
