St. Peter’s UCC is a thriving, multi-generational church making a difference in our very small community and our world through prayers and deeds. We are small but strong in spirit and faith. We support our local food bank with collections of food and money through Harvest Home in November and again in February. Our youth have provided recycling bins for our plastics, papers, aluminum and cardboard.
Finding time for Church activities is challenging for today’s active youth, so in the fall of 2015, St. Peter’s adopted a retreat style for our Confirmation class. Our flexible class dates/times enable our youth to stay involved. We gather once each month for several hours for class activities, and a lite meal. As part of their Confirmation experience, our youth participate in our Church services and community service events. They serve at two community events per Confirmation year, e.g., volunteering with our local food bank, the SPCA, and our free clothing collection/distribution center, or other service events that the youth may choose.
Our Sunday school program is growing and is extremely active. We emphasize
how God’s love is shown in the ways we treat each other every day as well as in the Church setting. We plan fun events, like visiting Hershey Park After Dark at Christmas time and a summer pool party. We had participants from age 87 to three months old actively involved in our 2015 Christmas program. After the pageant, everyone enjoyed a delicious breakfast together.
Our adult members are encouraged to share their faith journey with our Sunday school and Confirmation classes. It is such a wonderful gift from God to see our youth connecting with our other members.
During the summer and early fall months, we collect snack items for our youth who are away at college or in the military, and fruit baskets for our elders and shut-ins. Our weekly bulletins are mailed to our shut-ins on a regular basis, so they are included in the life of St. Peter’s.
