Please Join us ...

This week at Friedens Peace May 31, 2020

This Sunday, will we have a Drive-In worship on our church parking lot.

To support social distancing, we ask the following:

  • Arrive a few minutes early so our parking ushers can help direct you to appropriate parking place

  • If you bring lawn chairs please keep them near your vehicle

  • When outside your vehicle please wear a mask

  • We will be celebrating communion – please bring your own elements with you

We will be welcoming our confirmation class as members.  We have created a video about the class with photos and each student reading their faith statement.  You can view this on this website by clicking on this week’s worship service or click you can view it on Youtube at the following link https://youtu.be/EWP8SlVAvRU.  We will also be celebrating Pentecost Sunday so feel free to wear red in celebration.


Reopening - Are you wondering when we will be reopening the church?  If so, consider serving on a limited time committee that will consider and plan for the reopening.  If you are interested, please contact Linda Lenz or Pastor Karen.  After May 31, we will continue on-line worship until the committee has made recommendations and they are approved by council.  If you have suggestions you can pass them on to Linda Lenz or Pastor Karen.


Special Offering – Strengthen the Church is an annual offering taken on Pentecost and reflects the shared commitment of all settings of the UCC to cooperatively build up the UCC.  Our Missouri Mid-South Conferences will retain 50% of all contributions from our members and churches and will use these funds to support local projects that support leadership development, new churches, youth ministry and innovation in existing congregations.  This offering embodies the wisdom, “together we grow stronger.”   You can mail in a check with the notation STC or donate via our website, using the Strengthen the Church donate button. 


 June Newsletter We anticipate getting a newsletter out the first week of June.  If you have an article or picture please send to the office by Tuesday, June 2 at noon.
