 “I walked into St. Peter's one Sunday as a complete stranger who did not believe in God. What has happened to me since has been an incredible journey. I came to know God’s love, because the people of St. Peter's embraced me and surrounded me with their love”

              David Hutcheson

“ If you are looking for a church family and a preschool for your little ones, I highly encourage you to come to St. Peter's”.

OUR HISTORY

Sensing a need in the developing western communities of Wellington, Royal Palm Beach and Lake Worth, the United Methodist Church decided to plant a new church in the heart of Wellington. In 1978, St. Peter's United Methodist Church was launched with a handful of families in the home of our first Pastor, John Denmark, that would later charter on February 4, 1979. The church grew through personal contact and service to the growing families that formed the "Western Communities."  This was and is the core the foundation that the church was built on.
