St. Peter’s United Church of Christ is a “growing church serving a growing community.” It is a family church where people can feel the love of God through being nurtured in the Word and through the loving fellowship of brothers and sisters who share the faith.
Here we accept one another and encourage each other through worship, Bible study, prayer groups, organizations and community involvement. We warmly welcome you to share your life with us as we share with you the special call to be God’s people in the church, the home, the community and the world.
“I was glad when they said to me, ‘let us go to the house of the Lord.'”
An exciting and inspiring worship service awaits you each Sunday morning (check our worship schedule for hours). Hear an inspiring sermon. Enjoy exhilarating anthems and hymns. Be encouraged by the fellowship of new friends. Special messages for children, education, nursery care, and children’s bulletins help provide a family atmosphere. Large print bulletins are available and there is an elevator entrance for easy accessibility.
Christian Education & Youth Groups
An excellent Christian education program is available for children 2 years through Senior High and adults, plus nursery care for infants. The children participate in the beginning of each worship service. After the Children’s Chat the children attend their classes where they sing, hear Bible stories and create arts and crafts. There are several adult Bible study groups which meet as scheduled in the weekly bulletin and church calendar. Our Junior and Senior High youth groups meet monthly to plan events and service projects.
Our church has a Sanctuary Choir, handbell choir, and a children’s chime choir.

Church Council approved the use of an on-line service where people will be able to make donations to St. Peter’s U.C.C. Amherst. This will perform a direct payment from a bank account to the designated church account. Upon the first use, a new user account must be made. That account will be used for future donations. At this time credit card payments are not being accepted. Please use the < Donate > button in the navigation table on the left which will open a new page at “eservicepayments.com” which is operated by Vanco Services. This site should never send an e-mail asking for sensitive information (such as your username/password). Do not click on a link in any e-mail regarding the on-line donations. Take care of any e-mail notices of concern by visiting your account directly (even by using the < Donate > button to reach the site).
