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!
Important Worship Changes: Starting Sunday, October 2nd, Session has decided that it's time that we go to one service at 10am as our regular worship schedule and Sunday School at 11:15am going forward on Sundays. The feedback we have received from the joint services this summer was overwhelmingly positive and we believe it will be best for our future to have everyone together in one service. This joint service will be a blended service with elements and musical styles from both the current 9:00 & 11:15 services.
