Understanding Generational Differences & Generation Z
Join us September 29 at 9:30 am in Room 305. None of us are new to experiencing generational differences. We know they are there, but sometimes it is difficult to understand them when it comes to interacting, working, and communicating with others who might be younger or older than us. We will spend this Sunday looking at some of those differences when it comes to ministry and how we engage various generations in discipleship and serving. We will also spend time learning more about our youngest and upcoming generation - Generations Z or sometimes referred to as the Digital Generation. This will be a great morning of discussion and learning about how we can reach out to those around us! Facilitated by Katherine Richards, Director of Adult Ed. & Outreach
3rd Grade Bible Sunday

Our 3rd Graders will be receiving their very own Bibles during the 10:30 am service this Sunday, September 29. For more information, please contact Andrew Crist: acrist@peacehome.org

Work & Faith Workshop October 19
Both men and women - working and non-working are invited to this enriching and valuable workshop. No matter what your day-to-day job might be, our work and faith should intersect.  During our morning workshop, we will explore biblical truths that apply no matter what type of work we do: administrative, service, healthcare, management, training,  construction, caregiving, etc.  This is a great  opportunity to explore some of the issues we  encounter as we try to navigate being a Christ-follower in our jobs. Many of these areas include identity,  purpose, work-home balance, conflict-resolution, etc.  Great discussion and encouragement will 
definitely be part of our time together!
Join us on Saturday, October 19 from 8:30 to 11:30 am. .  
Contintental Breakfast will be served.  Mark your calendars and tell a friend. To RSVP, sign up by clicking here.  For more information,  contact Katherine Richards.
