    Saturdays at 10am weekly. (Skip December Saturdays)  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! Contact Larry Spicer for more information.

There is a saying that goes "the older we are, the better we used to be!"  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.
