In an effort to share God's radical message, we will be using FB live for our Sunday, March 22 service. Tune in at 9a for scripture, the message, hymns, and special music provided by the McLaurin Family. The service will be recorded and available for viewing on our web site (under Services) by 11a.

Dear Peace Church Members and Friends…
In response to the newest recommendations from the Minnesota Governor, Mayo medical professionals, and the Minnesota Conference UCC Minister, we will be suspending in-person worship and other scheduled events until further notice (possibly through the end of March). We will be working at providing digital messages that will be made available on-line and provide other resources for reflection and engagement.
After much consideration and prayer, the Church Council feels that providing sensitivity to this issue, and providing a safe place, is the highest priority. Once we have time to re-assess the situation, based on guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health and current realities, we will notify everyone about when we will resume worship and activities.
The Church Council will be meeting this Wednesday, March 18, to discuss more definitive plans on how we will/can continue to provide effective ministry and accessibility to/with our congregation during this time.
Until then, our hope is that we will all respond calmly to this ever-changing situation as decisions are made. Please keep all in your thoughts and prayers.
On behalf of the Peace Church Council,
Pastor Paul Bauch Wendy Nevala
Senior Pastor Peace UCC Peace UCC Church Council President
