Fellowship Time

After the service, we will have Fellowship Time 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.

Ringing of the Peace Bells

God is Revealed as We Gather

*Responsive Call to Worship Leader: Noah Beyer

L- The journey of faith is a journey through life. We are pilgrims, travelers, making our way. We sojourn on the pathway of the saints. We walk the same highway and follow the same land marks which led them.
P – But for each generation, in each place and time, and for each seeker who travels this way, the road seems different.
L- Today we celebrate tomorrow’s leaders, the heroes of a history yet to be made. We hold out our hands to them and beckon them to join us on the journey.
P – As they walk beside us, we may tell them our stories, but we may not tell them the way. We can tell them of our questions, but the answers must come from within their own hearts.
L- We celebrate a new generation of faith, a new branch with its leaves about to blossom.
P- Let us make a place for them and let them know that the family of Christ is their family too. Let us worship God together.
