This week at Friedens Peace

Worship in the Park

Restore Us!  This Sunday at Broemmelsiek Park, Shelter 7 at 10 a.m.  Bring a dish to share, your own drinks, and of course a comfy lawn chair!  Church will supply plates, napkins, and utensils.  We have many activities planned for EVERYONE.  We will be collecting paper products and plastic silverware for Our Lady's Inn.  They are also looking for two older kids’ potty chairs.  If you can donate one, bring it with you! 



  • We need volunteers to step-up and help the Outreach Committee.  Currently, they do not have enough volunteers to conduct a planned ASFF activity in October.  Can you help?  Please contact Julie Loika at jll8084@outlook.com.


  • We need a volunteer to lead apple butter.  Duties are to organize the effort.  If you can help, contact the church office.


New Melle Food Coop

At our informational meeting the Council invited the New Melle Food Coop directors to make a presentation about their coop and the partnership we have with them.  They asked for email addresses of anyone that wanted updates to their progress.  If you were at the meeting, yours has already been given to them.  If not, and you want to be added, let the church office know!
