God’s vision for Peace is to be a community that is healthy. A healthy community has spiritual, physical, emotional, financial, mental, and social health grounded in God. This means cultivating healthy relationships among members of the family, neighborhood, faith community, larger community, and world.
Here are some of the ministries for adults at Peace (find more information and sign up Sunday mornings at the Koinonia Corner, a table meant to help people participate more fully in the life and ministry of the church).
