WEEKLY UPATE

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 Pastor Scott’s phone at (936) 520-7711.  And if there is ever anything at all we can do for you, please just ask! 

 

Online & In Person Team Meetings:  Outreach & Mission: Monday, July 1st, 7 p.m. on Zoom.  Discipleship: Tuesday, July 2nd, 7 p.m. on Zoom.  Stewardship: Sunday, July 7th, 12:30 p.m. on Zoom and in person.

 

Sunday School Classes:

NEW App Sunday School Class Curriculum: Being Human.  This class has started a new video series by Jo Frost and Peter Lynas.  It is a riveting exploration of the cultural stories shaping the world we live in, as we seek biblical answers to the question, ‘What does it mean to be human?’ If you’re unsatisfied by or worried about the post-truth, you-do-you narratives that are common these days, this six-part video series will reorient you to God’s good and beautiful plan – and Jesus, our perfect model – for Being Human. This group meets in the Grappling Zone lobby at 11am on Sundays.  Join us and invite a friend!

 

Adult Acts Class: The Adult Acts class is studying the book “Refresh Your Prayers: Uncommon Devotions to Restore Power and Praise” by Lori Hatcher. Book is available on Amazon or other book retailers. All are welcome to join the class. Vicki Evans is the leader of this class. Adult Acts Class meets every Sunday at 11:15am In-Person in the back room at the church.

 

PeaceKids & PeaceYouth Sunday School: Children (PreK—4th grade) and youth (5th—12th grade) classes meet in-person at the church at 11:15am! We'd love to have your kids join us!

 

Peace Youth Group Meetings:   No other youth events are planned for June.  A lake trip and maybe a beach trip are tentative for July!  More info. to come!

 

NEW Sermon Series: Rock of Ages! “Rock of ages, cleft for me.  Let me hide myself in Thee…”  The old hymn sings this sweet melody, but what is the origin of the phrase?  What does the Bible say about God as our rock and redeemer, our fortress and deliverer, the stone the builders rejected?  As we get ready for our VBS theme, “Outback ROCK”, we’ll examine these questions and other instances when rocks are used as a metaphor for God, Jesus, and even us, his followers! This sermon series runs from June 2nd—July 21st.  Join us and invite a friend!

  

Small Groups!  All small groups are taking a break for the rest of the spring and summer. We’ll resume with The Chosen, season 2 small groups in the fall!

 

Pastor’s Discretionary Fund Could Use Your Help!  Peace Church has a Pastor’s Discretionary Fund that is used by Pastor Scott to help people in need when requests are made and for other minor expenses that arise in his work.  This fund is NOT part of the regular church budget and occasionally needs the support of members.  This fund has fallen to a low level, so if you would like to donate toward it on top of your regular giving to the church, it would be much appreciated. 

 

Summer Food Challenges is ON!  Join us again this summer as we collect non-perishable food for Christian Helping Hands in our competition with Southminster Presbyterian Church in Missouri City to see who can donate the most food by weight.  The Summer Food Challenge runs through all of June, July, and August.  Items especially needed right now are peanut butter, canned pasta sauce (no glass containers), grape jello, green beans, and corn. We’ll announce the winner in September and see who gets to proudly display the Soup Can Cup trophy all year!  Help us win again!  Food Drive Report from 6/9/24: Southminster Church: 59 people, 115 lbs = 1.95 lbs/person.  Peace Church: 23 people, 23 lbs = 1 lb/person. 

 

Guitar Player/Singer Worship Leader HIRED! Please welcome Eric DiMarzio, our new worship leader who has been hired!  

 

Grad Sunday 2024!  Join us on Sunday, June 16th, as we celebrate Jake Cummings, Michael Ingram, and Dean Zach who have recently graduated from college!  We’ll have slideshows, a recognition of their accomplishments, a special prayer, and a cake reception!  Don’t miss it!

 

Youth Mission Trip Planned!  Our youth group will be going to Austin to serve those in need June 23-28.  Please  consider contributing to the scholarship fund for the mission trip.  Just mark your donation, “youth”.  Thanks!
