Ministries

Peace United Church of Christ is a multigenerational community of faith. 
We welcome people of all ages, races, and life situations 
to join us in our calling to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. 

Toward that end, we see our mission as including not only ministry within the Church, but also in service to the community and the world. 

Pastoral and Spiritual Care
If you or a loved one is in need of pastoral or spiritual care, please let us know.  You can also call or email the office to add a concern to our prayer list. 

Stephen Ministers provide emotional and spiritual support to people going through crises, including illness and decline. Several Peace Church members have been trained as Stephen Ministers.  For more information, click here.
