Join us in our beautiful sanctuary for worship each Sunday. Worship is at 8:15 and 10:45 am on Sundays. Stay for fellowship and refreshments after service. Sunday School for ages 3 through high school begins at 9:45 am.

Have you ever wanted to be more involved at church but didn’t know what you could do or who to ask? You’re in luck! We’ve now made it easy to volunteer during our Sunday services.
Every week, dozens of volunteers work together to help make each service run smoothly. Without the help of the volunteers, each Sunday’s service wouldn’t go off as planned.
If you would like to sign up to help at an upcoming service, use the sign up book in the Gathering Space titled “Volunteer Opportunities” or call the church office. Please see what is available for November: NOVEMBER 2014
There are many other ways to get involved such as helping in Sunday School or with the youth, tying quilts, joining in a study group, singing in the Peace Choir, ringing in the hand bell choir Resounding Joy, or singing and playing with the contemporary worship band Cornerstones, visiting a shut-in, volunteering around the property or in the office or perhaps you have an area of talent and gifting you’d like to share.
Check out the sign-up sheets in the Gathering Space fellowship hall, or call Virginia Spaulding, Peace’s Volunteer Coordinater, at 253268-0996 or the church office to learn more and get involved.
