Changes at Peace Church

Our world’s quickly changing pandemic scene impacts Peace Church in many ways. Our worship services are now live-streamed.  This summer, we are welcoming 10 “pods” of people to be present during the live streaming of the worship service (on-line application). Most meetings and groups are meeting outdoors or remotely, keeping the feeling of the spirit and soul of the groups.  Please email the office for the links or with questions. (office@peaceucc.org)  The church building is not open, but staff are available to answer phone calls and emails. The sanctuary is open for private prayer on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am-3pm

We give thanks for workers on the front line with essential services and we pray for those who are ill or suffer loss of income or support. Thanks to all who have volunteered to help members.

If you have “attended” our online services and are new to Peace Church, we welcome you. Please explore our website to learn more about our congregation, and email the office (office@peaceucc.org) if you have questions or would like to receive weekly email updates.

Peace Little Treehouse Lending Library for Kids! Thank you to Dave Courtright who built a little library near our front door so that kids can check out books even though the church is closed. Sharon has put some wonderful books in it for you to check out. Return the books in two weeks, and check out another! More info
