Brothers of Peace
is our men’s group that meets in the church narthex on the first Wednesday of each month for fellowship, discussion, support and prayer, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This is your opportunity to get to know other men at Peace better, and to participate in discussing the significant issues and challenges men face in our world today. Please join us! For more information, talk to any of our leadership team, Jim Nice, Ron Maree, Steve Rinnert, or Pastor Brian Erickson (feel free to contact Pastor Brian via email). Begins Sept. 6, 2017 at 7:00pm. Our monthly discussion will focus on what it means to be a Christ-like Man.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study
meets from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the church office building. Led by Pastor Sarah, it uses the process called lectio divina. We begin by sharing our highs and lows from the week. Then, we read a Bible passage (usually the gospel for the upcoming Sunday) four different times, responding to different questions after every reading. By the end of the process, we have delved deep into the text and made connections with one another. All are welcome, and it isn’t necessary to attend every week to be part of this study.
Women Renewing at Peace (WRAP)
is a monthly women’s Bible Study group. WRAP meets on the last Friday of the month, at 11:00 am. We uphold the mission statement of the Women of the ELCA:
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
Please contact Karen Ager for more information about WRAP.
Note: For the month of February, WRAP will meet on February 16, 2018 at 11:00am
