Worship Style

We are full of faith and honest about our doubts and mistakes

We are a church rooted in tradition, but not stuck in it.

 
 

Worshiping at peace

Worship at Peace in the new sanctuary is rooted in tradition and committed to relevance and freshness.   Most of the year, we hold two nearly identical services at 8:30 and 11:00, blending the best of contemporary and historical styles. Lively Learning (Sunday School) classes for all ages are held at 9:45 a.m.   In summer (early June through Labor Day) we hold one service at 9:30 with coffee and meaningful conversation to follow.   

Many of our young families attend the 11 a.m service after Lively Learning. Peace loves having kids in worship: Pastor Elizabeth includes a children's sermon every week, and we invite them to join in Communion (young children may exit during the sermon for supervised learning and return for Communion.) Childcare is provided, but we love the sights and sounds of babies too!

A major part of Protestant worship is the sermon, and we expect you'll enjoy and be uplifted by the engaging sermons of Pastor Elizabeth. Her gentle and joyous spirit (and her occasional North Carolina drawl) will embrace you, surprise you, and, we hope, nudge you forward in your relationship with Christ.

Ask most of our members why they joined Peace, and they'll tell you it was a combination of the warm greeting they received and sense of family they feel as we worship together. Whether it is through familiar hymns or new spiritual songs, beautiful visual art or the sight of children walking up to Communion, you too will feel God's presence among our people.
