Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God (Romans 15:7).
Sts. Peter and Paul Lutheran Church welcomes you to a variety of opportunities for worship and nurture, Christian formation and community life, and service to others through stewardship of our God-given talents and gifts.
Founded over one hundred eleven years ago on October 20th, 1901 by Slovak immigrants to the United States, the congregation was originally located in what is known today as the “Old Pilsen” neighborhood of Chicago. In 1957, the congregation relocated to its present site at 250 Woodside Road (31st and DesPlaines) in the near western suburb of Riverside where today its ministry spans a broad geographic and social landscape.
The congregation is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Slovak Zion Synod. We hope you will worship with us at Sts. Peter and Paul so that our life together might more fully represent “the fullness of him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:23). You are invited to contact our pastor or office staff to obtain further information about the congregation and its programs or to arrange for a personal visit.
