Several Ways to Worship!

Peace United Church of Christ has a variety of worship experiences with which to engage! Contemporary Worship is on Sundays at 8:30 (9:00 in the summer) in the sanctuary, and offers the opportunity for live praise and worship music from contemporary artists. At the keyboard is Phyllis Sands, our talented Church Musician! Traditional Worship is on Sundays in the sanctuary at 10:30, offering a service of the Word with use of historic creeds and hymns of the church. Peace UCC also continues to offer online weekly worship via the website, Facebook and YouTube, an abbreviated version of Traditional Worship. Thank you for gathering with us in Christ's community, wherever you are!

Worship with us!

Advent Project 2022 has BIG Response!

Building Bridges to Light the Way has been the theme for Children's Ministry's Advent Project for 2022. Seeking to encourage everyone to be intentional and loving in their one-on-one relationships, family relationships, relationships in our neighborhoods and communities, and with the world, each week of Advent in worship and education sought responses. Week 3 encouraged donations for Peace's ongoing Meeting Neighbors' Needs Blanket Box, which is situated near the church mailbox on the driveway. Know someone who is in need of a warm blanket? Send them our way!

The 4th week encouraged responding to the crisis in Ukraine. With Russia targeting the power grid in Ukraine, there is a huge need for warm and protective clothing. Once again, Peace Church delivered! The overflowing box of sweaters and coats and boots and hats and gloves and socks will be bagged and delivered by our youth in the days after Christmas, so they can be loaded into a cargo container bound for Ukraine. Thank you, thank you, for your generous spirit!

Rocky Railway was a great adventure August 10-14th!

What a wonderful adventure we had together at Rocky Railway VBS! Children, youth and adults sang, played, experimented and journeyed through Bible stories like Ananias and Saul, Paul on a sinking ship, Peter and John healing at the Temple Gate, Jesus' death and resurrection, and stories from the Acts community. Peace Church was alive with the Spirit as we sang about trusting Jesus as His Power Pulls Us Through!!

We are already looking forward to next year!!
