We encourage our church family to get together inside AND outside of worship times. Our church offers a range of social, learning and volunteer events that help strengthen our members as individuals and as a community.
New Adult Study
The Book of Philippians
Thursday evenings, 6pm, starting May 27 and continuing through June 24
This encouraging letter to one of the early Christian churches has amazing parallels to our situation at Peace/Holbrook. Come and join the discovery! Pastor Jeff will be teaching this course. We'll conclude with a potluck supper together on June 24 and talk about future study options. A study of the Book of Acts is being planned, starting in October.
Sundays, Starting June 4th
Starting Sunday, June 4--after a 1+ year hiatus--we'll be resuming our post-worship coffee fellowships. We've missed this time of weekly reconnecting and are looking forward to it once again. A sign-up sheet to host one of these fellowships is available in the fellowship room. We want to keep it simple: Coffee/water/beverage and cookies or fruit. Let's not set the bar so high that it's hard for some to host. Thanks to all!
Missionary Family Visit
June 12th @ 6PM
June 13th @ 10AM
Our new missionaries, Jonathan & Carissa Webb and their three youngest children--Tabitha, Nathan & Maria--will be with us this weekend, their first visit to Holbrook and Peace and our first time meeting them. Pastor Jeff & Mary are hosting this family at the Johnsons' home. On Saturday evening, June 12, the Johnsons are inviting any interested folks to their home for a potluck dinner with the Webbs, 6pm. This should provide opportunity for more personal and extended conversations. Jonathan will be preaching at worship on Sunday morning, June 13 (10am). Funds are being collected for a Love's gift card (gas purchases) for them. If you'd like to contribute to that, see Kory Castellano. While the Webbs recently left Chad due to extreme violence in that volatile African nation, they hope to return to their missionary home in the not-too-distant-future.
Father's Day Luncheon
Sunday, June 20th after Worship
Just as the guys feted the women with a luncheon on Mother's Day, so the gals will be hosting a Father's Day lunch after worship--for all men. So...girls, bring a generous dish to share that day--and let's remind the guys that we're still the Queens of the Kitchen!
Monday, June 28, 6pm
Roy Wiegand, a Lutheran from the Los Angeles area, will be riding his (pedal) bike through Holbrook on this day and will be overnighting with the Johnsons' at The Buffalo House (the Johnsons' residence at 614 W Buffalo). Pastor Jeff & Mary are inviting any interested individuals to join them that night for a potluck supper in honor of Roy and his mission. Roy is riding his bike over 1,000 miles, from LA to Albuquerque, hoping to raise $10,000 to drill two water wells on the Navajo Reservation through an organization called DigDeep (www.digdeep.org). Roy will be riding from Payson that day (where he'll have overnighted with Jeff & Susan Nafziger, former Holbrook residents and members of Peace) before riding on to Gallup and another host home that night. While we're not asking for contributions for the well drilling project, anyone who'd like to support Roy's Ride would be welcome to do so. Just come, enjoy a good meal and time of fellowship together on this Monday night as we learn more about Roy's mission.
