Peace Blood Drive March 11 
Are you giving up anything for Lent?

As a reminder of Christ's sacrifice, some Christians give up favorite things for Lent.  Sweets.  Beer.  Social media. This year, instead of giving something up, they can give blood at the Peace Blood Drive.  It actually saves lives, may improve your health and for every pint of blood donated, $22 will be donated to our West Suburban Feed My Starving Children event.  It's how you can literally give the gift of life.

Appointments are encouraged!  But walk-ins welcome.  Please  CLICK HERE NOW   to schedule your preferred donation time!  Or sign up in the Peace Lobby.
Monday, March 11
03:00 PM - 07:00 PM
Please sign up today! 
Contact Dave Ullman with questions or for help signing up:   dave.ullman@yahoo.com or call 630-963-3813.

Lenten Series 2019
Lenten Services begin at 7:15 pm on Wednesday nights.

"Convicted!"  Step into the courtroom each week in Lent with our Convicted worship series. Each service puts a different biblical person from the story of Christ's passion and death on trial, accused of an actual crime. 

March 13: 
Dereliction of Duty

Step into the courtroom once again in the next service in our Convicted worship series, in which a different biblical person from the story of Christ's passion and death is on trial in each service, accused of an actual crime. In this week's service, we will look at the case against Jesus' disciples on the charge of dereliction of duty.
