Join us after worship each Sunday for a time of fellowship around coffee and some treats!  It's a great opportunity to check-in with each other to see how we're really doing, as well as greet any newcomers who may be in our midst.

Bread of Life Mission Annual Banquet & Auction

Saturday, October 2, 5:30pm at the Elks Lodge

Join our Peace people, as well as many other generous supporters from our community/area, as we gather around a delicious meal, participate in a fun-auction and celebrate the Kingdom work being done at the Bread of Life Mission, just down-the-street from Peace.  Peace will sponsor a table for eight but if we fill that table--and we hope to do so--there'll be plenty of other tables to help fill.  The cost of $15.  Join us on Saturday, October 2, 5:30pm at the Elks Lodge in support of this life-changing mission partner.

Christmas Bazaar

July 25, 2025

It's a tradition--and a lot of fun!  After a COVID-19 hiatus, we're back to our full-out fundraiser.  A combination of the area's biggest rummage sale (no kidding!), craft and bake sale, our Christmas Bazaar is a lot of work but it brings together our community, offers great bargains to a lot of needy people and raises significant money to bless not only our congregation but other ministries, as well.  The set-up dates are November 8-10 (Monday-Wednesday) and we need LOTS of help as we fill Martinez Hall at the Navajo County Fairgrounds, organize everything into departments, and price the contributions we've been collecting throughout the year.  The sale dates are November 11-13 (Thursday-Saturday) and we'll need help with this too (although not as much as earlier in the week).  If you have contributions (great or small) to make, contact the church office or any of our leaders, and we can collect your goodies at any point.  If you have crafts to make and offer, wonderful--with holiday crafts especially wanted.  If you're able to bake any holiday treats, that would be welcome, too--but at the time of the event, obviously.  Mostly, if you're able to come and help, please do!  We need fixers, cleaners, organizers, pricers, artists, decorators, electronic specialists, assemblers--and lots of plain laborers.  We feed our volunteers well!  For out-of-town volunteers, the Lexington Inn is offering specially discounted rates. So...November will be here before we know it!  Mark your calendars now.  We'd love your help and we'd love your patronage!
