Normal Time

  • St. Peter’s traditionally supports the Summer Camp, Back to School Program, and my personal favorite - Gifts to the Manger. I have been volunteering at Gifts to the Manger for 14 years now, my first year when I was 12. Now I am the Youth Group Leader and find immense joy in sharing my love for WUCC with members from St. Peter’s.


    Gifts to the Manger provides an opportunity for parents/guardians from the community to come and shop at no cost for gifts for their kids for Christmas. Volunteers and donors provide toys, puzzles, games, dolls, and clothing that are available for registered families to receive. Prior to 2020, the experience was set up like a store where families came to shop.



  • We have an exciting announcement! A project that has been a dream and a plan and a project for many months, delayed by a pandemic, and yet important to the mission and story of St. Peter's UCC - we have opened our newly renovated bathrooms! We went from gendered and inaccessible bathrooms to fully accessible, fully open bathrooms.


  • And so, with a spirit of new beginnings and hopeful possibilities, I am offering you a brief musical reflection each Monday during Advent. This week, consider the carol “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” It’s one of my personal favorites and one that Mike Wicker sang with handbell accompaniment yesterday. “Emmanuel” means “God with us”, and for that very reason, this carol resonates deeply within my soul.



  • There’s a quietness in the air, and I cannot tell if it’s anticipation of what is to come or mourning what once was... or (most likely) both.



  • For the "I’ve Been Meaning to Ask" series this summer, our Monday Meditations will be written by various members of the St. Peter’s community.    


    This week, Sarah Scholl answers the question "What do you deeply long for?” as we think about “Where do we go from here?”
