OUR FELLOWSHIP HASN’T STOPPED DUE TO COVID-19 – WE’VE MOVED OUR COMMUNITY GROUPS ONLINE WITH ZOOM!  FOLLOW THIS LINK TO GET CONNECTED.
 
Adult Groups provide opportunities for you to meet consistently with other adults for authentic community and spiritual growth. These groups meet at various times and locations, so you can find one that works best for you (check out our calendar page for details). 
 
Adventure/Book Club: The old Peace Book Club is morphing into an “Adventure” Club. We will still be discussing the books we are reading—but while out on a fun excursion! In January we went to Winter Park by SunRail, took the Boat Tour and then had lunch before we caught the train back. Times and adventures will vary. Watch the calendar andPeace Connection for announcements. New members and guests are always welcome. Contact the church office for more information. 
 
Chancel Choir:  meeting for rehearsals every Thursday evening @ 7:30 p.m. Like to make a joyful noise to the Lord? The Chancel Choir leads music for the 11:00 a.m. worship service. We perform a wide range of traditional compositions and work hard to make each piece as precise and meaningful as possible. We seek to glorify God and to inspire the faith of all who hear.
 
Griefshare: meets seasonally at Peace on Thursday nights from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in Class Room B. Talking with others is a healing ingredient in the journey of grief. Griefshare is a 13-week support group open to anyone that is dealing with the death of a loved one. Our classes meet on Thursday nights, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in the Youth Room. For more information about this program, please go to www.griefshare.org or contact the church office. (NEXT 2020 Class August 6th – October 29th)

Ladies of Peace (off campus): meets monthly in various locations around Orlando. Our purpose is to connect the ladies of Peace through social gatherings designed especially for women. Join our Facebook group for more information. 
 
Pastor Jim’s Pub Group (off campus): meets every other Tuesday event @ 7:00 p.m at Island Wing Company.  Led by Pastor Jim Berlau, the goal is to sit down around the table and have open, honest discussions about things that matter. Everyone is welcome and wanted.  Pull up a chair and join the conversation.

Pursuing Peace Class: meets very Sunday from 10:45 – 11:00 a.m. & 12:15 – 1:00 p.m. in the Youth Room.  PEACE – not just the name of our Church. A distinctive Fruit listed in Galatians 5:22 that serves as proof that the Spirit guides us in our everyday lives. Most want peace. Not everyone has it. Is the peace greeting that we extend each Sunday morning flowing naturally into our day to day routine and easily called upon in our darkest hours? Perhaps, we are not to be “seeking” peace as much as we are to live like we are truly PURSUING PEACE. Every Sunday, immediately following, both the 9:30 and 11:00 services, engage in practical conversation that incorporates the weekly Scripture and sermon message in a mature yet relaxed environment to promote Christ-like peace. 
 
Praise Team: meets weekly for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings @ 7:45 p.m. The Praise Team is dedicated to glorifying God with our music. We believe that praise expressed through joyful song can bring new dimensions to worship. To accomplish diversity and musical excellence, we are always looking for skilled vocalists and musicians. Please contact the church office for an audition meeting.
 
Shalom Sunday School Class: meets weekly on Sundays @ 9:30 a.m. in the Choir Room. We discuss Scriptures, share mutual experiences and learn from each others’ faith journeys.  Although the primary membership includes adults age 40 and older, adults of any age have attended and are welcome. The class is led a retired pastor who guide the participants through in-depth Bible Study (Adult Bible Studies) that explores themes and individual books of the Bible.

Tuesday Morning Breakfast Group: meeting every Tuesday morning from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. @ Hunter’s Creek Cracker Barrel.  We share breakfast and open discussion.  All are welcome (men and women, young and old, conservatives and liberals, know-it-alls and know-nothings, diligent readers and night-before skimmers, those who can come every week and those who can come intermittently).  Want to live more like Jesus?  We’ll share, debate, and learn together.
