Peacemaking was central to Jesus’ earthly ministry and central to what he calls us as his followers—perhaps now more than ever.
The PCUSA has declared September Season of Peace.
Join us for a special sermon series and Bible study each Sunday in September, culminating in World Communion Sunday, October 2.
Adult Bible Study: The Things That Make for Peace
September 4-25, 2016
10:45 a.m. Sanctuary Overflow Room
Luke 19:37-44; Ephesians 1:18 click here to download class handout
This session explores the differences between peace as the world often defines it and as Jesus teaches and models it.
“Finding Peace ‘So That You May Live Deep
Within Your Heart’”
Philippians 4:4-7; Romans 5:15
How do we find peace in our hearts? How do we deepen our personal spiritual practices as peacemakers? This session explores how we might ground ourselves in the practice of peace.
“Practicing Peace ‘So That You May Work for Justice,
Freedom, and Peace’”
What does it mean to “turn the other cheek”? What is the difference between being a doormat and choosing nonviolence?
“Living Peace ‘So That You Can Do What Others Claim
Cannot Be Done’”
2 Chronicles 6:13-40; Matthew 5:23-24; Romans 12:18
Peace within, peace with God, and peace with others all require forgiveness and a life that seeks to restore relationships.
