find peace
We were blessed to receive 9 new members on May 19, Pentecost Sunday.  Being a new church member can be intimidating!  Be sure to greet them by name when you see them and welcome them to our congregation.  Take the initiative to build relationships and connect them to life at Peace!
 
"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, ... Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone..."  Ephesians 2:19-20
