Celebrations To Come!

One of the hardest things to leave behind in 2020 was the observance of Peace UCC’s 50th anniversary. The dedication service was on June 6, 1970, and we had a wonderful celebration planned on that same weekend in 2020. It was not safe to gather, but we honored that milestone nonetheless in our online worship.

Not to be deterred, the planning group has gathered and planned a fitting celebration for Peace UCC’s 51 years of ministry! Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, October 16th and 17th!

And while we are celebrating…

Peace UCC was formed in the late 1960’s by the joining of St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Adamstown and Muddy Creek United Church of Christ. Muddy Creek UCC is one of the earliest German Reformed churches in the area, its founding marked with the first recorded baptisms in January of 1731. Since Peace UCC is the continuation of Muddy Creek UCC, Penn Central Conference recognized the congregation for 290 years of ministry at the recent Annual Meeting of the Conference. Yes, there is much to celebrate, and we will also mark this milestone on the Anniversary weekend.

Here are the details:
Saturday, October 16th: An anniversary picnic will be held in the Grove with the meal beginning at 4pm. The menu includes roasted pork, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, green beans, cole slaw, veggies and dip, rolls, drinks and cake. Live music will follow the meal at 5:15, and outdoor games will be available. At 6:30 we will gather around a bonfire for a Vesper service and enjoy S’mores!

Sunday, October 17th: Celebration Worship will be held at 10am, with special music, guests and greetings, as well as the celebration of Communion. Many pictures and slides will be available for viewing throughout the church building. The weekend will close with the viewing of the time capsule placed in the cornerstone, adding items from the present and rededicating the ministry of Peace Church in Christ’s name.

Please share this information with friends and family who have shared in the life of Peace UCC, Muddy Creek UCC and St. Paul’s UCC. What a weekend it will be! 290 years, 51 years, with prayers and determination for many more years of faithful service to God in Jesus Christ for the people of Peace United Church
of Christ.

Peace be with you!
