Our Mission

Our Mission Statement is Hand in Hand with Jesus, transforming ourselves and our community. 

We try to live by that mission statement with our monthly community dinners, weekly needle night, dorcas class, and welcoming attitude at services and coffee hour after church.  Come and see!  God is still speaking!

Worship

Worship is held every Sunday at 10:30AM.  Holy Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month, on Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve.  Our table is open to all in Christian fellowship.


The United Church of Christ
Welcome to the United Church of Christ - a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions: from the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree to live together in communion. Our motto -"that they may all be one" - is Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church. The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian churches in the United States


WELCOME!

St. Peter's Church allows for diversity of beliefs in our various journeys of faith.

Saint Peter's Church is a caring, concerned and questioning congregation which supports each one's search for a personal relationship with God, a congenial relationship with each other, and a mission outreach to the local and global community. Our search covers ground some already have discovered, and some others may not wish to tread. We all are enriched by seeking and recognizing the diverse movement of God among us.

We understand and enjoy our varying approaches to scripture; we believe that God expects us to accept and even celebrate our diversity on all levels of life. In accordance with our United Church of Christ creed, we believe we are to "seek justice," that is, to identify with those who have been marginalized for whatever reason.

Saint Peter's Church is a "Welcoming and Affirming Congregation" of searching believers, striving to be a sensitive and safe place for all to discern the wondrous Mind of Christ. Enjoy your fellowship here!

 

MISSION aCTIVITIES

Reach In/Reach Out Team

The Care Ministry Team, led by Nancy Detterline, is working as a group providing spiritual, emotional and tangible care to St. Peter's church family.  The team offers support through personal visits, telephone calls, reaching out to members we have not seen in church in a while, preparing meals, giving rides to medical appointments, and any other assistance that is needed.  For any help or a need you might have, please contact Nancy Detterline and she and her team will attempt to assist you in any way they can.  For spiritual needs, Pastor Robyn Evans can be reached through the church by calling 610-469-9690 or mailing pastor@stpeterucc.org.  If you would like to join the Care Ministry Team, see Nancy Detterline. 

Coventry Food Pantry

St. Peter UCC supports the Coventry Food Pantry, an organization that is run by four volunteers and serves about 90 families from areas of Montgomery County, North Coventry and Pottstown that are not served by the larger food banks.  CFP functions pretty much on community generosity, since it can not count on regular deliveries from the state.
Recommended food donations include:  side dishes; macaroni & cheese; rice; mashed potatoes; helpers; canned soup and pasta; canned meats and tuna; peanut butter and jelly; cereal; oatmeal; toilet paper; personal care items; laundry detergent.  The Food Pantry also accepts monetary donations and grocery store gift cards to help purchase food for distribution.  Checks made payable to Coventry Food Pantry can be mailed to Coventry Food Pantry, c/o North Coventry Township, 84 S. Hanover Stteet, Pottstown, PA 19465.

Glasses for the Masses

The Care Ministry Team is collecting unused eyeglasses for low-income, visually impaired individuals.  Donated eyeglasses are typically cleaned, repaired and/or measured to determine the correction, and then cataloged in a computer database by charitable organizations and matched to needy people. Please bring any unused eyeglasses and deposit in the collection box in the Narthex.  Thank you!

"In Ian's Boots" Mission for Soles

The Care Ministry Team of St. Peter collects on an ongoing basis new and gently-used shoes and seasonal boots (babies, children of all ages, adults) and men's work boots.  Sneakers are needed for the warmer months.  A "shoe box" for your donations is in the Narthex.  If anyone is willing to help at In Ian's Boots headquarters at 43 Railroad Street, Linfield, with sorting, inventorying, cleaning or shipping shoes, please see Nancy Detterline.  You can go along with the Team on their already-scheduled times.  You don't need to be a part of or to join the Care Ministry Team to help.  The Linfield facility is in need of Pinesol, Purex laundry detergent (high efficiency), Lysol wipes, Lysol spray, rubber bands, shoe shine (clear), shoe laces, metal shelving and used working washing machines.  Thank you!
