Adult Forum

After the service, we will have Adult Forum in a Zoom video conference.  Details for joining will be shared via email and at the end of the live stream.


The Building is Closed and the Church is Open

While we have restricted access to the building, Peace Church is very much open to ministryworking to respond to our own congregation, as well as the needs of our neighbors and community.  Please consider giving either to Peace Church general fund or the Gabriel Fund – which is used to meet the needs in the community.

We recognize that in this time, people’s financial situations may have changed. We ask you to prayerfully consider what you can give.  If you use electronic giving, we thank you for your constancy of support.  If you would like to give through our online form, we would be grateful. For all the contributions from our members and friendswhether financial, time, or prayerwe ask God’s blessings on those gifts that Peace Church may be healing balm in this time when we are living in our own Gilead.

Responsive Call to Worship

Grace to you all and peace from God
Who is, and was and is to come.
We give praise and thanksgiving for the lives of all the saints who have gone before us.
We give thanks for the lives of the saints that  we have known and those known only to God.

May our worship together bless us and give us strength to live the way that Jesus taught.
