Announcements

Congratulations James!
As you may be aware, James has been working through the process for becoming an Ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Reformed Church in America. The RCA takes this process very seriously and it is very challenging on a variety of levels. Last week James passed his "final exams" with the Classis of Minnesota, and is now eligible to be ordained. Last night the Consistory voted unanimously to approve a call to James to become Peace Church's "Pastor of Connections and Equipping". This "call" now goes to the Classis of Minnesota leadership for approval. Once approved, we are required to publish this at Peace Church for three weeks, giving members the opportunity to give their feedback or raise any objections. At the conclusion of that three week period, if all goes well, James will be ordained an installed at a special service of the Classis here at Peace Church. (Tentatively on the afternoon of August 22). 

Peace Church has been blessed to be in partnership with Rahn Elementary for many years.  Not only do we have a wonderful mentorship program with Kid's Hope led by Linda Bogaard, we also partner to supply school supplies for Rahn's Kindergartners and First Graders.

When we first moved to Eagan five years ago we were in need of a new home church. We visited nearly a dozen churches over the course of 6 months but kept finding our way back to Peace and now call it home. The messages resonate with us, the people are kind and welcoming and we appreciate the connection Peace has with the broader community to help those in need. Tim's messages always leave us filled with the Holy Spirit and provide insightful discussion throughout the week. We also like how involved the members are and the true desire from the leadership team to receive input from the congregation on how to constantly improve and make this church a place where people truly feel welcomed

We were church shopping after moving to Eagan and when a neighbor said she thought we might like Peace church, we went.  We were greeted warmly at the door, in the pew, at coffee and afterward.  Introductions were made and we were connected with children's ministries for our kids and adult ministries for ourselves.  We have not missed a week at Peace since that first Sunday nearly 30 years ago.

I chose Peace at a time when I was looking for a new church home.  I met a wonderful member of Peace at my exercise class and we chatted about an upcoming event that Serenity Seekers was participating in. I asked to join them and the women of Serenity Seekers during the event. They were my kind of Christians.  I attended church services and felt the same way about the other members I met.  I stay at Peace because of the Christian messages, friendships, and many outreach ways I can participate in.

Givens

Hans & Donna Givens

We were drawn to Peace Church initially by the leadership of Pastor George and Arlene Muyskens who sacrificially worked to inspire and build a family of faith here.  In the ensuing years, we have been privileged to invest our lives in God's kingdom together with friends whose wide interests, remarkable talents, and loving care have supported and enriched us through both good and difficult times. We believe that vision is still very much alive at Peace Church.

I feel at home when I'm part of the Peace family. Because everyone has accepted me for the way I am regardless if I'm in a wheelchair and I have mental health. You can feel safe at Peace Church because nobody will judge you for how you look or what problems you may face.

Peace Church has and still is a place where we felt like we belonged. We were accepted by Peace family as who we are. Peace had overlooked the color of our skin, hair and culture and they have embraced us with lots of love, acceptance, peace and with great patience!  We will forever be thankful!

I'm here because of God's call on my life and I stay because of God's call on my life.  God's not done with any of us yet.  I love Peace Church because its leadership is focused on God's vision, not theirs.  This group of people are very giving and helpful.  Always there when you need something! Wonderful musicians!  Very inspiring music every week!

Dave & Sue Wehling

We like that Peace is not so massive, when there are visitors we can recognize they are guests and welcome them.

Wendy W

Peace has been the focal point for every important event in my life such as:  Becoming a member of the church, high school graduation, college graduation, my wedding, the baptism of my children and is now part of my children's lives.

Deb Anderson

I grew up in this church.  It is a family that is centered in Christ reaching out to the community  giving unconditional love.

Patrick J

Patrick & Lilla Jamison

We were lead by God's calling to connect with other people of faith that were part of the church.  Those connections were deepened as we found ways to share our gifts in service to God, our community, and His church.

Feeling so blessed to have become members of Peace Church 42 years ago and still be members! Truly a church that offers so many opportunities to all ages for growing in your faith, caring for others, having fun and "becoming more like Jesus"!

I truly feel that God led me to Peace after my husband died and I no longer wanted to drive the distance to my former church.  I did a web search for a local Bible believing church that had active women's groups and once I entered the narthex at Peace and was warmly welcomed, I knew I had found my new church. Since then my son Peter has found the same warm loving embrace.

I came to Peace Church in 1961.  I had never heard of the Reformed Church in America.  So I began reading about the RCA.  I felt included here and was always impressed with the people who embraced continued learning.  We never stop learning.  As I continue at Peace and pray that we can always come open minds, open hearts and open arms.

Designation

The people of Peace have been family when we're physically far from family.  We've learned from teachers here, watched our children get to know God here, and served and taught alongside friends here.  Peace has always felt like a reminder that while we might be part of a small "c" church, we are all a part of the ONE big "C" church. That is both inspiring and motivating (I need to do my specific part), and comforting and hopeful (I am not alone, but joined with others as Christ's body).  The donuts and coffee have always been a win, too

my reason for choosing and staying at peace was our early attraction to the youth program. Our two, now adult sons, grew up in the youth program and are still very close friends with the children they met in that program. They have been involved with each others weddings as attendants, seen them have children, graduate from college, go through the Marine Corps, all starting as children in the Youth program together. That combined with the many missions Peace is involved with, and my 20+ years with the contemporary band have served as a strong tie to Peace.

Over the years Peace has remained steadfast in their Bible based sermons and teachings.   They have always offered many choices of Bible studies along with different men's and women's groups. I am involved in one of the circles, where beside a Bible study we can be involved in missions and serving others. That has been very rewarding and fun. I have met a lot of "forever friends" here at Peace church.

In the mid 1970's, a friend at work invited me to a Mother/Daughter Banquet at Peace Reformed Church.  I had never heard of a "Reformed" Church, but I went with her and had a very nice time.  Forty-five years later, I am still going to Peace and my entire family has enjoyed the leadership, the programs, the people, and the journey with me!

Harold & Sharon Lake

Over the years at Peace, we have come to appreciate the associations and friendships of many very good people. It has been a pleasure to come to church on Sunday and see/talk with people we had become familiar with over time. Some that have become our closest friends.  Certainly, social relationships are important but even more importantly, we have been blessed with the preaching and teaching of a long list of pastors, assistant pastors, and lay people, We feel especially blessed at this stage of our life to have the preaching and teaching of Pastor Tim, Pastor Verlyn, and James. The sermons Pastor Tim and the bible studies he leads have expanded our understanding of scripture and provided new insights into the teachings of Jesus. For that we are very grateful.

Friends from our former church switched to Peace and highly recommended the preaching.  Our oldest son was 14 and we also heard about the youth program. Our boys had great youth pastors here and loved it. We stayed here for the same reasons and also the fellowship and many friends.

Worship @ Peace

Our worship services are a beautiful blend of contemporary and traditional components.  We include traditional hymns and prayers, music from organ, piano, violin, choir and band all rounded out with relevant teachings of what the bible means to us today.  Join us weekly in person at 10am, or online.
