Sunday, October 4th - The Lord’s Supper
Please prepare your heart for the Lord’s Supper next Sunday. It will be served at both the Indoor and Outdoor Worship Service.

Pastoral Search Committee Update
We want to once again extend our thanks for your participation in the survey we sent out in June.  We would like to share a video compilation of the results and walk through them with you.  You may view the video here.  It will always be available to view at your convenience on YouTube - PeacePCA (Playlist -Other) or in the media section on our website - www.peacepca.org/media. Your valuable feedback continues to play an integral role in our search.

We also want to update you on our progress.  We are currently receiving resumes and we are working diligently to review them.  Please pray for wisdom, discernment, and stamina for us as we continue in this important work.  

You are always in our prayers and in our hearts.  We know this has been a long period without a lead shepherd, and that it has been compounded by personal afflictions, a pandemic, and unrest in our nation and world.  We also recognize the continued need for healing within our church body, and we earnestly pray that our loving Good Shepherd who binds up the broken will gently restore his people in love and unity.

Encouraging One Another from your Home
Want to encourage one another from your own home? Do you enjoy sending cards? Comfort & Care is seeking someone to join our card ministry to send cards every other month to those who are ill, grieving, or facing challenging circumstances. If this appeals to you or would like more information, please contact Lou Paules or 919-630-9232.

Livestream Feedback Email
If you have comments during our Livestream, please email us at livestream@peacepca.org. This email will be monitored during the Livestream to help us know if people are experiencing issues with the Livestream. This email is only for Livestream feedback, not sermon critique, or music feedback. 

Save-the-date - Drive through Fall Fest 
Please join us next Saturday, October 3, noon-1pm, for our first-ever Peace Kids Drive through Fall Fest and Sunday School Kickoff.

Taste and See Virtual Sunday School Class
"Taste and see that the Lord is good." Psalm 34:8  Have you ever thought about this invitation?  This passage is not talking about food though.  It is an intimate invitation, like a kiss, to trust God through difficult times.  This class will explore the reality of God's goodness and Todd will share some of his favorite recipes, too. Join virtually this Sunday here.

Discover Christianity Course
A simple, personal way to introduce friends, neighbors, and strangers to Jesus Christ. This is a short course for anyone interested in gaining a basic understanding of the Christian faith. Every Sunday through October 18, Jeff Smith and Eric Gatilogo will lead each class session in the outdoor breezeway that connects our two buildings, from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. All are welcome, and questions will be encouraged. Bibles will be provided. Please invite and bring those you know and encounter. Card-stock handout invitations will be available at both services.  For more information please go here.

Community Groups
Community Groups are a great way to build relationships at Peace Church and grow in your knowledge of God. Community Groups will be starting up on September 20. If you are interested in learning more about these groups or would like to be in a group, please contact Pastor Doug Domin or Pastor Ken Langley.

American Heritage Girls 
Did you know American Heritage Girls (AHG) Troop NC0244 is a ministry of Peace Church?  AHG is a faith-based program for girls ages 5 to 18 dedicated to building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country. This fall our troop is planning limited in-person and virtual meetings and activities for our members.  If you would like to learn more about joining the troop or how you can serve our young ladies please contact Brenda Lupino for more information. 

Peace Preschool
Peace Preschool had a wonderful first few weeks of school. Everyone is happy to be together once more, “discovering and exploring God’s world.” We still have a few open spaces in our 3’s, 4’s, and Jr. Kindergarten classes. If you know anyone whose child needs to get out of the house to play with friends and be loved by our wonderful staff, please tell them to check us out online or call us at 919-415-1733.

Coming Alongside Dorcas Ministry
Peace Church wants to love Cary (and our surrounding communities) by coming alongside Dorcas Ministries to bless our neighbors with a food drive.  Dorcas Ministries is one of the local ministries supported by Peace.  With the onset of Covid-19, Dorcas Ministries has been giving out food by the cartload at their curbside location for months now.  Earlier, there were many food drives, and LOTS of food came in, but now they need more of everything: pancake mix, cake mixes, flour, sugar, diapers, mac &  cheese, canned veggies, pasta, cleaning products, soap, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.  Volunteers fill bags and load carts by family size, then add frozen food, milk, bread, eggs, and fresh veggies. People drive by and load up during weekday afternoons when the shop is open. (Area gardens contribute the veggies, stores send  bread, milk, and eggs.)  So many families are still out of work, and of course, kids are home.  We will have collection boxes at both services on Sunday mornings.  You can also donate these items directly at Dorcas Ministries, 187 High House Road in Cary if preferred. 

Outside Worship Service Help Needed
Each Sunday volunteers have come early and stayed late to help set up and take down the chairs, sound system, tents, and other items for the 8:30 Service.  We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to serve.  At present, there is a need for 8 people each week - 4 before and 4 after.  If you would like to volunteer please click here.

Printed Directory
We will have printed directories at both the Indoor and Outdoor Worship Services each week.  In addition, you may pick one up at the church during office hours (Tuesday - Friday, 9 am - 1 pm).  If you need one mail to you, please contact Andrea or the Secretary.

Out of LOVE & CONCERN
As Wake County continues to have many COVID-19 cases, we would like to ask you not to attend either the outdoor or indoor services if you had a fever or elevated temperature within the last 48 hours or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days.  Out of love and concern for your brothers and sisters in Christ, please stay home if you are sneezing, coughing, or have other COVID-like symptoms.  We still strongly encourage wearing a mask at both our outdoor and indoor services.   

COVID-19 positive test
The Indoor Worship Service Planning Team wanted to make you aware of our new confidential form on our website for reporting your positive COVID diagnosis. The form goes to two elders and one deacon only. If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, please fill out this form so that we can take appropriate action.  Your identity will be kept private, and your disclosure may enable us to consider additional sanitizing and communications to affected persons. As always, any person with respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) is asked to remain at home and seek medical advice/treatment. 

Sunday, Outdoor Worship Service - 8:30 am
We strongly encourage you to consider wearing a mask. We will have seats placed at six-foot intervals and more chairs will be available for you to set up for yourself. We will have welcome tables with hand sanitizer and bulletins, as well as, instructions for seating and restroom use. If we cancel, it will be by 5 pm on Saturday and you will receive an email shortly after that. 

 

Sunday, Indoor Worship Service - 11 am
We are happy to announce that we are allowing worship with singing in our Indoor Service. We are also able to have 65 people in the sanctuary for the service. While continuing to observe social distancing, we recommend that people wear masks throughout the service but masks are required while singing. If you plan on attending, please let us know by clicking here.

Sunday, Livestream - 11 am
Please join us for our Livestream worship service at 11 am at PeacePCA or here.  The bulletin with lyrics can be viewed or downloaded here. If you have children at home, please print the Children's Sermon Notes to help them worship
