ADULT MINISTRIES

ADULT EDUCATION

Christian education at Peace is life-long learning of who God is and our relationship to Him through study of scripture. Adults are invited to grow in relationship and knowledge of Christ through participating in any of the Bible studies that we offer. 

Sunday Mornings, we offer an Adult Bible Study from 9:30 to 10:20 am. Great topics and discussion are always part of this study time.  Everyone is welcome.
Adult Bible Studies are offered in Room 305 (Member-Led) and in the Great Room (with Pastor Marty).

 

Pastor Marty's Study

Continues in January with a new weekly recorded video-based Bible study on the Book of Revelation led by Pastor Marty. Pastor Marty will be walking through the Book of Revelation this fall. Check Peace's website each week at your convenience to download and watch Pastor Marty's study. Feel free to email questions, reflections, and thoughts to Pastor Marty as you study along.

 

MEN  |  WOMEN  |  SMALL GROUPS

Whether you are looking for a Bible study, casual gathering with friends, or a committed small group, our adult ministry provides opportunities for adults to experience together. No matter what phase of life you might be in - finishing up college, developing a career, starting and raising a family, experiencing what it means to be an empty-nester, retiring... all of these events are more meaningful and joyful when we share them together.

ADULTS ON THE GO

Adults on the Go is a group of Christian adults who meet several times a year for fellowship and service events outside the Peace campus. Past events have included boat tours, museum visits, concerts, plays, and our annual volunteer event at Feed My Starving Children. Adults of all ages are invited to join us.

If you would like to be on the mailing list for AOTG or would like more information, please contact Brad Stirtz.

JOYBREAK​​​​​​​

Join us as we  journey through the Book of First Samuel, which is an epic story about a fight for control. Despite God’s warnings through the prophet Samuel, the nation of Israel was determined to take control by having their own king. As we dig into the saga of King Saul and David, who would become the next anointed king of Israel, we will discover that no plan or purpose of God can be thwarted by human beings. Even the worst of circumstances can be used by God to accomplish His purposes in our lives.

In this study, we will learn how God can turn your messy life into a masterpiece! - Every life gets messy at times. Whether it's a messy house or a messy situation, God can restore and use you.

Each session focuses on a different character.
