The mission of the Nurture Commission is to facilitate or meet the spiritual, fellowship, and other needs of the Congregation through stand-alone groups, events, and pastoral care. Linda McClanahan leads this commission.
- Prayer Boards
We make a concerted effort to pray for those in need as a community. Our prayer boards ministry is a posting of all those in need of prayer.
To Gather in Fellowship: spend a Friday night with adults that gather at a local restaurant for a Friday evening meal. Good conversation and good food is typically found at these events. The only business during the evening is to settle on who will plan the next outing. Listen for announcements in church for the time and place of the next TGIF event.
At various times during the year we gather for congregational meals. Often these are meals before the midweek service.
- Food for Members
At times, individuals have a need for food. The Nurture Commission arranges for the church to assist in supplying food to the member in need.
- Summer, Fall, and Winter Gatherings
Fellowship doesn’t end within the church walls. The Nurture Commission plans two to three events each year as well as occasional brunches at the church.
- Card Ministry
For members who are ailing, get well notes are sent telling them that the congregation is thinking of them.
- Baby and Wedding Showers
The Nurture Commission helps church members arrange for baby and wedding showers as needed.
The Commission makes sure the kitchen is stocked with paper goods, coffee, and lemonade.
- Prayer Blankets
For those who want a reminder that they are covered in prayer, Peace has a prayer blanket ministry. We bring those blankets before the congregation during the worship service, surround them in prayer, and send them out as our way of saying, “You are not alone.”
Fellowship groups at Peace provide an opportunity for our members to grow and minister to each other through activities outside of the worship experience. Here are some of the currently ongoing fellowship groups we have available:
- Women’s Book Discussion
1st Tuesday of the month at 10:00 am in Classroom 10
