"...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’" Matthew 25:35-36
At Peace we believe Jesus calls us to get our hands dirty and to get busy serving and loving others. That's why we believe we can make a difference and want to help you discover who God created you to be and guide you along in your spiritual journey of growth and service. Where does God call you to serve with your unique gifts and abilities?
