Tuesday or Wednesday Evening Bible Study
This Fall Pastor Tim will be offering TWO options for Bible Study: a Zoom option on Tuesday evenings and an in person option on Wednesday evenings. Both will start at 6:30pm and will be interchangeable. If you can't make it on Wednesday, feel free to join on Tuesday! If one week it works better to join us on Zoom, and the next week you would like to join in person, feel free to mix and match for what works best for you!
We will be using Rachel Held Evan's book "Inspired" to guide us through some of the most formational stories of the Bible, (but you don't have to read the book to join!) If you WOULD like to read the book and do some preparation in advance, links to purchase the book and download the free study guide are provided below. The Study Guide includes the Bible texts we will be studying each week. A schedule of weekly topics and readings is also downloadable below.

The Centering Prayer group has been meeting remotely since March of 2020. We commit to praying together weekly at 8:00am and follow the guidelines of meditating on a scripture verse for 20 minutes followed by praying for our church, families, communities, government and the world. Every Sunday, the members receive an email with a scripture verse with prayer concerns, or an inspiring thought. If anyone would like to be added to the mailing list to receive the weekly emails notify the church office. All are welcome.
Over the last few years, pickleball has been rising in popularity. The growth of the sport in recent years probably has a lot to do with the fact that it is a sport that is easy to learn and fun for mixed groups, no matter the age, gender, or skill of the players. We have 3 courts ready for play on Saturday mornings at 10am! Contact Larry Spicer for more information.

Young Women's Small Group
We have been referring to ourselves as the "Young Women's Small Group" for a few years now (to the point where "middle age" is probably a better descriptor), but the name has stuck and we will not argue. We welcome women of all ages to join our group! Examples of the books we enjoy are "Get Out of Your Head" by Jennie Allen, and "Rhythms of Renewal" by Rebekah Lyons. We meet approximately once a month, but we do adjust as needed to accommodate schedules. And, as much as we do love to read, sometimes our conversations have nothing to do with the book. Sometimes we haven't been able to read the book. But, it's ok. We have fun, and we become better friends with each meeting. For more information, contact Sara Johnson.
Thursday Morning Men's Group
There is a saying that goes "the older we are, the better we used to be!" On Thursday mornings at 8:00am, several men from Peace gather in the Fellowship Hall to share their stories of greatness over breakfast and coffee. We share a brief devotional and take some time to hear prayer concerns. After an hour, we go on our way even as we celebrate our friendship. All men are welcome to join. Contact Pastor Verlyn for more information.
