Life of Peace
WELCOME!! If you are a guest with us here at Peace Church, welcome! Our prayer is that you find our family of faith warm and welcoming and that you consider joining us again soon. Below are announcements about the many ways we are involved in our community and how we seek to bless it. If you have any questions or want to get involved in anything you read about below, don’t hesitate to ask me or call or text my cell phone. It’s (936) 520-7711. And if there is ever anything at all we can do for you, please just ask. Thanks so much for joining us today! Blessings In Christ, Scott Cummings, Pastor
Office Address: The church office address is 9307 Broadway St. #307, Pearland, TX 77584 (on Broadway at Sunrise Lakes, between CR 90 & Cullen Blvd). Open Monday- Friday, 9a-1p.
PeaceKids Sunday School! We have TWO classes for kids & youth: PreK - 4th grade, and 5th - 12th grade. Elementary Class meets in the larger classroom and the Youth Class meets in the very back room at Mosaic. Your kids will love it and YOU’LL love one of our adult classes below!
Mosaic Reminders! First, if you come in late or early and worship is going on, feel free to come on in and go back to a back Sunday School room or just come sit in the cushy arm chairs in the back of the sanctuary. Everyone else, please try and leave those chairs open for early or late-comers. Second, please remind your older children that the nursery is for ages 4 and under during worship. I know the new toys look really fun, but we must only have volunteers who are 13 years and older, adults, and young children in there during worship times. Also, BE CAREFUL WITH SPILLS, SINCE THE FLOOR IS SLICK WHEN WET! Thanks!
Adult Acts Class: The Adult Acts class is studying the book “Experiencing the Words of Jesus” by Max Lucado. Their next study is to be determined. All are welcome to join the class (Sundays from 10:10 - 11:00) in the sanctuary at Mosaic.
Bible Study Class: The Adult Bible Study Class is nearing the conclusion of the book of Mark. This has proven to be an interesting reading of God’s Word. You will never be expected to talk, read, or pray unless you feel comfortable doing so. Come join us for this meaningful time of fellowship. We meet in the kitchen area behind the black curtain.
“APP” SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS: Join the “APP” Class, as in “application”! We’ll look at the scriptures from the sermon each week and talk about how to apply them to our lives. Pastor Scott Cummings will lead it, so you can just show up! Bring your kids to their classes and enjoy studying God’s Word! Join this class on Sunday mornings at 10:15AM in the office of Mosaic.
Tentative Team Meetings: Session: Sunday, June 24th at 12:45pm at Mosaic. Future meetings will be announced.
Upcoming Youth Events: Join us for occasional summer Youth Hangouts. Our next meeting will be Friday, June 29th, for a trip to Lake Houston to play on the Cummings’ boat! Meet at the old church (1801 Country Place Pkwy) at 9 a.m. and we’ll be back by about 4 p.m. We’ll tube and ski and swim and have a blast! Bring a sack lunch. Thursday, July 12th from 9a-4p - Beach Trip to Galveston/Pleasure Pier. August 3-5th - VBS Volunteering. Saturday, August 11th from 5-8pm - Pool Party. Regular weekly Sunday afternoon meetings start back on Sept. 8th. Join us!
Next Sermon Series: Made To Worship. Why do followers of Jesus sing songs to praise God? Why do we confess our sins? Why do we pray to God together? What is the point of corporate worship? We’ll tackle these questions and more as we discover what Presbyterian worship is meant to be. Truly we are made to worship. Invite friends to come discover why we worship, too! This series runs June 10th—July 29th.
Summer Communion: We’re doing something different this summer as suggested by some of our congregation as we celebrate communion EVERY Sunday in June, July, and August at the 11:15 service. We’ll continue offering communion at the 9:00 service on the first Sunday of each of these months. If communion is particularly meaningful to you but you normally worship at 9, join us at 11:15 for the summer instead!
2018 Food Challenge: Each Sunday (June 3 - August 26), donations at Peace and Southminster will be collected, weighed and tallied together. The collected foods will be taken to neighborhood food pantries each week. The “winning” congregation will be announced on Sunday, September 2nd. Last year, the two churches combined collected over A TON of food donations!! Let’s try to do even better this year so participate with us!
2018 Food Challenge Totals: For June 17th, Peace donated 60.3 lbs. and a total Sunday per capita total of 0.67 lbs. per person. Southminster donated 115 lbs. and a total Sunday per capita total of 0.89 lbs. per person. Since June 3rd, both churches have collected 488.3 lbs. of food to help feed the hungry in our communities.
Youth/Adult Mission Trip: Our summer mission trip will be July 22-28 in Rockport, TX, to assist with hurricane recovery projects. We've reserved 15 spots for our church, but wanted to let everyone know that ANY adults are welcome to join us on this trip!! We will need a few adults to supervise our youth (6th grade and up) but others are certainly invited to join. The work will vary in intensity based on the abilities of our participants but it will mostly be outside in the heat, so that should be taken into consideration. After our fundraising brings down the cost of the trip, we expect to need everyone to pay $250 per person for the week, which includes transportation and almost all our meals. A lunch or dinner on the way there and during our free time will be the only meals not covered. We will be staying at a local church with bunk beds, showers, and recreational areas. If you are interested in attending the trip, let Pastor Scott know and he may be able to add you to our numbers. The first payment of $100 was due June 1st, and the rest ($150) is due by July 22nd. Thanks!
