Adult Ed Study This Sunday at 9:30 AM
"The Potter and the Clay" (Great Room)
The word of the Lord came to the prophet Jeremiah,
"Arise, go down to the potter's house, and there I will let you hear my words." (Jeremiah 18:2)
Beginning with this passage from Scripture, former high school art teacher and Peace member Peter Grass will use a potter's wheel to reveal how each of our lives is remarkably similar to a lump of clay as we are molded by the Lord! This will be the only Bible study this Sunday and teens are encouraged to join us.
Join us at 9:30 in the Great Room!

Thank You Peace Family! 

A big Thank You! to everyone who helped create no-sew blankets for Lutheran World Relief.
26 blankets (plus some beautiful quilts) were delivered to the Church of the Brethren in Elgin where they will be packaged and shipped to Maryland, the home church. From there, they reach any number of countries where they will warm the people who most need comfort. Praise God for sharing the many talents for His Glory!
Women's Online Study

A new 5-week session of the Peace Women's Online Bible Study begins on Monday, April 15 on the book of  Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes offers a philosophy of life and how God fits into it. It shows us how to find spiritual significance in a life that would otherwise seem meaningless. We'll journey through this book and also learn more about Solomon along the way, too!   All you need is your Bible for this study and access to Facebook.  Our online Bible study is a wonderful way for women to connect with each other and grow in God's Word together.  For more information or to register, please contact Katherine Richards at  katherine@peacehome.org .
