Join us after the service today to decorate for the holidays! Many hands make light work and thank you for helping to make Peace a festive place to be!

We will continue to meet at 9am each Sunday between now and Christmas Eve to prepare for our special music presentation starring YOU, the choir members of Peace. All are welcome!

God’s Children of Peace will be caroling after school this Tuesday. You’re welcome to join us at Alma Manor as we walk through the halls spreading joy and singing songs.

Advent is a time of expectation as we wait for the birth of Jesus. Likewise, many mothers find themselves in need of support as they care for an infant child. Between now and Christmas Eve, bring the following items for donation to Community Care Ministries: baby blankets, baby formula, diapers/pull-ups, and baby wipes. As you do your holiday shopping, add an item to your cart and help an expectant mother this season!

In the weeks ahead, we will begin talking about the vision of Peace Church: where we have been and where we are headed. I invite you to start answering these questions: “What do I see when I look at Peace Church?” “What do I want to see?” More to come!
Also, we will have a Christmas Choir! Start warming up those voices now!

Our church runs thanks to volunteers like you! At the end of this year, both Ralph and Janeen will have completed their service to the Consistory. Would you like to be part of the future of Peace and play a role in what we’ll do next? Please consider joining the governing body of this church. We need you! Speak to Pastor Michael or Ralph if you are interested.
We are looking to schedule an event or two for middle/high school youth this fall. Could you host a group at your house for dinner? Have an idea on a place to take the group for an outing? Instead of staying inside the church, we want to get out and explore! Talk to Pastor Michael about any ideas you have. We will also be planning an end-of-year all-ages church event & lock-in, so stay tuned!
As we plan for MissionFest, is there a group you’d like to invite to speak to us about the work they are doing? Let us know!
