Peace Online Community Groups on ZOOM

 

During this time of social distancing, we can still come together to grow in discipleship and engage with our Peace family through our virtual Community Groups. Using an online web-conferencing tool called ZOOM, we have scheduled groups throughout the week to provide opportunities for Bible study, devotion, lively discussion, and personal connection. There’s something for all age groups and interests, so we hope you will find a place to connect. All groups are open, so you can drop in and try several.

Below you will find a list of groups along with a description and the video log in (or phone dial in) information. You will need to download ZOOM www.zoom.com onto your computer or other device (via the ZOOM app) in advance of the session.  You may create a ZOOM account if you like, but it’s not necessary to join a Community Group discussion—all you need is the group number listed below.
