Bible Study – Significant – A Study of Women in Jesus’ Genealogy:  Six Ordinary Women,

One Extraordinary God, written by Rachel Risner


Ever feel like your life is upside-down?  Or at least it’s not going the way you’d planned? 

Join the club!  Our upcoming Bible Study, Significant, follows the ups and downs of six pivotal

Bible characters who had their own crazy circumstances and failures, but were chosen by God

for an amazing purpose–to be Jesus’s foremothers.  Learn from their lives how to be a woman

of beauty, worship, mercy, courage, tenacity, & influence–even when life feels upside-down.

Sign up today!  We will begin June 8th.



New Melle Country Market

Every Wednesday, between 4-7, the New Melle Country Market will have vendors in Fellowship Hall.  Their advertising is:


New Melle's only local grocery market is open once a week on Wednesday rain or shine. This market is your one stop shop for bulk dry goods (rice, oats, oils, sugars, and flours), local meats, local produce, and local prepared food.  Everything at this market is either grown or produced in the Midwest.


And it will be right here at Friedens Peace!  Stop by, support these local vendors!

We are in need of liturgist, A/V and cleaning people.  If this is something you can do, please see the list in the Narthex.  We would love to see all the boxes full!
