Coffee & Treats Before Church: Feel free to stop by the court-yard entrance doors prior to worship for a cup of coffee and some yummy treats!


Rummage Sale

Even though we are still in the winter season, spring will be here soon and you know what that means...Spring Cleaning!  We would love to have another rummage sale, so please save your items.  Anyone interested in helping out with planning, setting up, etc. is to contact Jackie Timmons at (815) 466-4048 or text (567) 249-5141.  We will have a meeting sometime in the next few weeks to discuss the details. Thank you for all your support last time and we hope to have the same success this time.   


Thank you, 


*2019 Financial Statements: The 2019 Financial Statements are on the counter in the hallway.


Christian Education Opportunities:

Sundays (9 am) – Children/Youth thru 12th grade. Classes meet in the basement.

3rd Sundays (9 am) – All adults welcome. February 16th’s class “The Purpose of Missions.”

Thursdays (7 pm) – All welcome. 7-Week Series on Ephesians (Jan 9th – Feb. 20).


Wheelbarrow Challenge: How many pennies does it take to fill a wheelbarrow? Do you know? I’ve been told 50,000. Let’s see if it’s true. A wheelbarrow will be located in the hallway by the church office. Let’s see how much loose change (pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, or more) it takes to fill it. All proceeds will help offset local missions’ projects.


Want to Help in Worship?: We are looking for people willing to learn (nothing is too difficult) and help serve in a variety of ways on Sunday mornings. If one of these opportunities is interesting to you, please let the church office, or Pastor Kyle, know.

Sound System Technician (Adjusting Sound when needed)

Power Point Specialist (Simply put, hit the arrow key when Pastor needs it)

Facebook Live Camera Operator (just moving the iPad/camera when needed)


Miss a Service? Can’t Make it on Sunday?

Did something come up and you can’t make it to church on Sunday morning? Not feeling well and you want to still join in worship? 

We have the solution! Join us on Facebook live during the normal service time. While we’d prefer you to be in church we know that life provides many obstacles and we want to give you a chance to stay in touch with the weekly announcements, worship music, time of prayer and sermons. 

All you need is a Facebook page! From there, search for our
church page (St. Peters UCC Grant Park, @StPetersGrantPark) and “like the page.” 

Click on the “Posts” tab and a post with the current service should begin a minute or two before the service. Occasionally, we have technical difficulty, so be patient with us.

If you aren’t on at the time of the service, that is okay as well. You can go to the church Facebook page at any time and scroll through the posts to watch the previously recorded services. 

If you experience difficulty, please contact the church during the week and explain your problems and we’ll do our best to help out.

Do you have an announcement, prayer concern or joy to share with the pastor and/or congregation?

            *For announcements, please sit near the front of the church prior to the service beginning and share your announcement during the opening announcement time and then return to your seat.

            ** If you have a prayer concern or joy, please write the information down and hand it to Pastor Kyle (or to an usher) prior to the service. Please note whether you want the information to be shared with the congregation or kept privately with the Pastor.
