Peace United Methodist Church – Adult Ministries

Adult Ministries

Peace has many different ministry opportunities. If you can’t find a ministry to connect with, please contact the Church Office and we will be glad to help you.

Worship Technical Team

These audio/visual wizards operate our sound and video during worship services. If you would like to be part of the rotational team that runs the audio board or the video projection presentation equipment, we are happy to train you. It’s pretty simple, but always exciting work that is crucial to communicating the gospel message on Sunday mornings. Contact John Brown.

Web Ministry Team

This team manages our web communications. The Web Ministry Team supports the Peace website and social media ministries. We are in need of those who enjoy working with content, images, video, and site administration. For more information contact Jonathan Morris.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Jean S. Trees Memorial Prayer Shawl Ministry is a ministry of prayer and love for Peace United Methodist Church. The ministry has been named in memory of Jean Trees who was the first to make and provide a prayer shawl for this emerging ministry. She passed away one week after presenting her shawl.

According to Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo, the founders of Prayer Shawl Ministries, “the making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies our thoughts and prayers for the receiver. It is a gift freely given with no strings attached. Made in prayer, as prayer, for prayer, the shawls are passed on hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart. Putting a price on a shawl defeats the purpose of this ministry.”

At Peace UMC, Rev. Bob Schall is coordinating this ministry and invites anyone who likes to knit or crochet to consider being a part of this prayer ministry. Prayer shawls are given to people who are ill or hospitalized, suffering chronic conditions, undergoing chemotherapy, or simply in need of comfort and prayer. For more details or instructions, please contact Bob Schall, 407-239-8668 or BHAGWON@EARTHLINK.NET.

Before you begin: Because this is a spiritual practice, before one begins the knitting or crocheting process, a blessing, prayer or wish can be said, dedicating the work of your hands and the intentions of the receiver. You may want to light a candle and play soft music to enhance your knitting (crochet) time, remembering that this a prayerful time. When working in a group, you may want to pass the work-in-progress around the circle, asking each person to add some stitches to the shawl, or to just hold it for a while to add their prayers, energy and good wishes.


Hospitality Team

The Hospitality Team ensures that everyone attending worship is properly greeted, takes up the offerings, provides gift bags to first-time visitors, and makes certain that the right information is available in the right locations for all worship attendees. This team also ensures that the communion elements and prayer candles are properly stocked and presentable. For more information on this vital service, contact Hospitality Chairperson, Becky Brashears
