Some of our returning college students took time to come to church on Sunday. (Andrea Vogt is already at school.) They allowed us to tell them that we care about them and love them even when they are away. We think about them and listen for reports of their lives even when church is the last thing they’re thinking about. We said a prayer for them and you blessed them with your hands on their backs and on their heads. College is a time of learning and testing and finding new habits, beliefs and routines. I pray that our Peace kids will keep faith alive in their hearts. I hope they are brave enough to act ethically. Someday I want them to find a church home where they can hear ancient wisdom and rest, as the Psalmist wrote, in the beauty of holiness.

In this emergency
During the weeks of the COVID-19 restrictions, Sunday worship is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Members and friends on our mailing list receive Zoom invitations. If you would like to attend the service online, send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
As we pass through days of isolation, members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to pray and meditate on scripture and to explore some of the spiritual treasures of our faith.
Keep in mind those who live alone. Telephone calls and emails between members and friends of the church keep connections strong and support those in need.
When routines change, patience and forbearance help us get along. If you are together for long periods of time in the house, take advantage of the time. Enjoy one another.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, members of Peace might be able to help. Pastor Johnson’s cell is 978/460-1118.
