6th Sunday After Pentecost
New Series - PLAYLIST

Sermon: Tim Pappas & Candace Neal "Fame & Fortune" -  Taking off the mask to be ourselves (who God wants us to be) and not who the world wants us to be.
 
Scripture: "Do not let your adorning be external- the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear- but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
(1 Peter 3:3-4)

A Note From Candace & Tim
We are so thrilled to kick off this exciting Playlist Series at Peace! This summer promises to be a musical melange of different melodies, personal experiences, and life lessons. If you're asking yourself, "Who's this Candace gal and Tim fellow?" Have no fear. You may have seen this husband and wife team singing with the praise team, tickling the ivories, and reading a dramatic scene or two around the holidays. As we delve into this first day of July, we will roll up our sleeves to hone in on our journeys as longtime performers. Albeit gratifying to live a life "in the spotlight," there are many pitfalls and harsh realities we have faced behind the curtain.
 
Certainly, music has had an impact on us all. Through it, we can channel our emotions, ease our pain, celebrate our successes, dance away our worries, recall great memories, the list goes on. In a fast-paced world blanketed in technology, social media, "likes" and photo filters, it's easy to lose yourself in the need for perfectionism. With this first Playlist Series message, we will focus on stripping away our outer personas to live more authentic lives. Unburdened by materialistic wants and the pressures of impeccability, we can move closer to God. Who is your authentic self? How can you get back to your roots? How can you strengthen your relationship with God on a more basic, personal and genuine level? Let's find out together!
We look forward to sharing our truths with you (good and bad) through our favorite therapy of all: music and laughter.
