Men of Peace Breakfast This Saturday
Men of Peace- Our next monthly breakfast is coming up this Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 am. After a great meal, we'll spend an hour or so working around the building and grounds. The work we do saves many dollars that can be better spent in the Lord's work. Please wear work clothes and join us to help care for God's house!

Voters' Meeting Next Sunday 11:30 AM 

Please plan to attend a special Voters' Meeting scheduled for Sunday, April 22  at 11:30 AM in the Sanctuary.  The purpose of this Voters' meeting is to issue a Divine Call for a new Director of Christian Education who will focus on Children's and  Youth Ministry.   
Thank you for making this position possible.  Last summer, the congregation was challenged to increase their giving so that we could afford a new D.C.E. and you have responded overwhelmingly to that challenge.
Join us Sunday, April 22  at 11:30 AM in the Sanctuary so that we can take this next step in growing our ministry to young families both here at Peace and in the community.

Thank You From Easter Care and Share

The Care and Share Ministry would like to thank our Peace Family for all their support with their recent Easter distribution. The ministry served 151 individuals among the 42 families. 5 of the families are seniors to whom items were delivered.  57 children from birth to 10 years received a personalized Easter basket with age-appropriate items, including books, crayons,
markers, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, candy, and stuffed animals.
Our Peace Community Learning Center donated an Easter egg dye kit for each family, and every family received a grocery gift  card as well. Donated clothing was also distributed to the families.
Thank you for your tremendous support!

"Live The Love"
 at Peace.
It's a simple and     powerful idea.
It's the people of Peace, united in love for Jesus Christ, reflecting His great love in service to others.  
It challenges all church members to put their Christian faith 
into action.
Grasp the opportunities God provides to 
"Change Lives with 
The Love of Jesus"  wherever it is needed, around the globe or across the street!
to read stories of how people are
"Living The Love"!

Path 2017
 
Join your Family of Peace as we read the 
Bible in 2018.
The Path: 
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men."
