For 171 years, the spiritual needs of a congregation were met at worship in a church that began on the prairie in an area that decades later would become Northbrook. The church, which opened its doors in 1845 and eventually came to be known as St. Peter Community Church, was officially disbanded on Sept. 18 of this year.
