Stephen Ministers Available
As Covid wanes a bit but continues to afflict, many of us are feeling weary. The stress of Covid—in addition to other life crises—may actually have put us in despair. Would you benefit by having someone to walk alongside you, share your burden, pray for and encourage you, and point you to the Lord? If so, please consider having a Stephen Minister. Peace Church is blessed to have many Stephen Ministers, many without a care receiver at this time. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Stephen Ministry Leaders Jan Coates (919-244-1135) or Matt Somerville (919-417-0763).

The Pray Wake County Prayerwalking Project
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, together, we could participate in an endeavor in which at least 1000 neighborhoods, 250 business districts, 25 area, and state government complexes, 300 church building locations, 20 hospital complexes, and 150 areas where schools are located could be prayed for during 2021? It can! Don Rayno with Raleigh-Area Concerts of Prayer helped make it easy by creating “The Pray Wake County Prayerwalking Project”. Find out how you can be a part of prayerwalking through the entire county here.

Bless Every Home is a great tool that will give an online map of your immediate neighborhood, with your immediate neighbors identified. The tool is absolutely free just register to have access and be able to pray by names for your neighbors.

Adult Sunday School Class - Book of Colossians: Christ Supreme (No new class on Easter)
The Christ Paul writes about in Colossians is to have preeminence in everything. He is God and every thought is to be brought into submission to Him. Yet this 2000-year-old letter is not only one of warning but one of encouragement, with much practical advice for living faithfully, both in Paul’s words and in his example. Find it here

Peace Preschool Registration Opens for 2021-2022
Peace Preschool is a half-day, learn-through-play preschool where children are invited to “Discover and Explore God’s World.” We offer a developmentally-appropriate curriculum designed to help children grow in five key areas of development: social-emotional (independent self-care, situational awareness, personal expression); communication (includes an introduction to language arts); physical (gross and fine motor); cognitive (problem-solving, making predictions); and spiritual (introduction to Biblical themes through story, music, and prayer). We are now accepting registration for our 2021-2022 School Year. Please tell your friends and neighbors with preschoolers about us! Find out more by visiting their website for a virtual tour and details about classes and tuition rates.

Daily Prayers
Don Rayno has continually helped us pray for our world during this pandemic. Please check out the daily prayers here. You may always find it (daily prayers) under the resources tab on the website

Audio-Visual Team Needs You
If you’ve ever tried to adjust the EQ settings while listening to music or tried to get the colors just right on your TV, then we need you on the A/V Team! We are currently running a Livestream at our Indoor service, as well as, live sound at our Indoor and Outdoor Services, and need to add to our team. We can train you and get you serving right away. If you’re interested in serving with the A/V Team, let Pastor Ken know.

Playground Construction
Thanks to a designated gift construction on our new playground are now underway and will result in some very visible and fun changes for preschool-age attenders. This project will hopefully be done by early spring.

Cry Room and Parlor Now Available
We are now making our Cry Room (adjacent to the Sanctuary) and our Parlor (across from the bathrooms in the Admin Hall) available to ONE FAMILY per service. The signage on the doors asks you to flip the sign after you leave it so other people will not enter a “contaminated” room. Thank you for working with us to protect the health of our Peace family!

Outside Worship Service Help Needed
Each Sunday, we depend upon volunteers to set up and take down the chairs, tents, and other items for the 8:30 Outdoor Worship Service.  We have begun using a new signup application through the Planning Center.  If you would like to volunteer, please go here and look for the Outdoor Setup team signup sheet.  First-time users will need to register their email and set up a password.  Contact Tom Hornack if you have questions or need further assistance.  

Worship Service Info
We are pleased to announce that on Sundays with inclement weather, we will now be able to worship indoors during both the 8:30 and 11:00 am services, with overflow in the fellowship hall as needed. The 8:30 am service will still be outdoors when weather permits, but we hope this opens more options for the gathering of the saints in worship during these challenging times

We feel confident in this next step due to several factors including rapid vaccination among our most at-risk members; cleaning protocols in place between services, and the antiviral air purifiers installed in our HVAC system earlier in the pandemic. Wearing of masks and social distancing is still strongly encouraged (even for those vaccinated, for now, out of precaution for others). We are thankful for this congregation's continued effort to provide the safest and most welcoming environment for all in this way.

COVID-19 Reminders
The COVID-19 pandemic has been with us now for almost a year. It is easy to be inundated with information but to forget the basics. The most important reminder is if you are feeling sick, please stay home. You could be ASYMPTOMATIC yet have COVID-19 and spread it without even having a fever. If you are achy, have a dry cough, or a headache, please be safe, for the consideration of others, and stay home. Likewise, 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 within the last 14 days, please stay home. We continue to 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 (NEW TIME STARTING EASTER SUNDAY!)
We strongly encourage you to consider wearing a mask. We will have outdoor heaters with 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.
