The opportunities to learn more about our community are always there. Are you interested in participating in a service learning project? From April 20-22, 2018, Peace will be participating in an Urban Immersion Service Retreat (UISR). Through their retreats and trainings, UISR creates a deeper understanding of the complexities of poverty through team building activities and critical reflection. We will be near Midtown Global Market and focus on projects at organizations like food shelves, shelters and other social service agencies. The program begins at 6:30pm on Friday evening and ends at 9:30am Sunday morning. Registration is $100 per person and is due March 18. Please register online here.

On Sunday, Pastor Kjell Ferris and Annie Bonow shared their reflections from the Dominican Republic mission trip they went on in October with Lord of Life and Servidores Mundiales. Peace’s gifts helped build a three-room home for a family. If you’d like to watch their joint sermon, check out our Facebook page. Servidores Mundiales sent us their November newsletter, which you can view here. Below you can see a slideshow of photos from the trip.
