Encouragement Ministry Team

Sending cards on baptism anniversaries to those who have been baptized here at Peace. Reaching out to others who might need encouragement by sending a card and perhaps a phone call to let them know we are thinking of them.

Praise Singers

This group is comprised of those who love to sing but might not read music or just want to sing something a bit more informal. This group practices at 8:00 am prior to the worship service on the 1st Sunday of the month and sings once a month during our worship service.

Quilters

The Peace Quilters meet every Wednesday in the church basement from 9 AM until 3 PM. We not only make quilts which we distribute to Lutheran Relief and the Illinois Veterans Home, but it is a social gathering for many of us too. Most of the materials we use to make our quilts are scraps of material and bed sheets that are donated to us. Can't sew or feel you don't sew well enough, don't worry we'll teach you and we can also use ladies to knot the finished quilts. Bring a sack lunch and join us!

PADS

Peace is a shelter site on Monday nights for those individuals and families who find themselves homeless. The site coordinators are Judy and Don Trejo. Volunteers are needed to be on site during the evening and also to provide an evening meal. For more information, contact Grundy County P.A.D.S. at www.grundypads.org.

Ruth Circle

The Ruth Circle is a small Bible Study group of ladies (men are welcome too) that gather the 1st Thursday each month at 2 pm in the church parlor. The Bible study is on various topics and encourages discussion and conversation.

Sunday School

Children Pre K through 6th grade meet each Sunday after worship downstairs for music and classes where we learn more about God and the Bible. Come join us!
