Classes + Groups
There are many ways to get connected at Peace Church. For more information about how to get involved with any of these opportunities, please contact our office staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218.724.3637.
Adult Forum and Education
Our adult forums happen at 9:30am every Sunday between the early and late services. There is a different presenter every week and topics vary greatly. Please see our latest newsletter or weekly email update for our current schedule.
As Peace Church has grown as a congregation, we have developed more small group opportunities for members and friends to meet each other and find meaningful ways to connect with the life of the community. Here are ways we regularly come together for study, prayer, support, creativity, and reflection. Many more small group opportunities are happening throughout the year.
Lectio Divina (Adult Bible Study)
Wednesday Evening 5:00 pm via Zoom. Lectio Divina is listening for the still, small voice of God that speaks to us through scripture. This study asks us to reflect on what is happening in our lives and world. We read the coming Sunday’s Gospel lesson three times, pausing between each reading to share what word or phrase touches each of our hearts and why those words move us. No prior Biblical knowledge is needed. We close with prayer, each praying for the person on his or her right. Join us as we practice this ancient and yet very relevant method of Bible study with Rev. Bob Stevens.
Sharing Our Spiritual Journey Group – First and Third Mondays – 7:00pm via Zoom
You are invited to join the “Sharing Our Spiritual Journey” group to reflect on how our spiritual journeys is going and how life is calling us. We use a poem or short reading to center our reflection, followed by a few minutes of journaling and the opportunity to share. Email Gary Boelhower for the Zoom link at email@example.com. Newcomers welcome.
Monday Women’s Book Group
The first and third Mondays of each month via Zoom. The books focus on faith and spirituality and are selected by the participants in the group. See the Peace Bell Newsletter for the current book selections. All women are invited to join the discussion. For further information contact Penny Cragun (218-727-2972, firstname.lastname@example.org).

Intercessory prayer for members of our community and those they love is a gift that honors God and brings hope and encouragement to those for whom we pray.
