Our performances alternate between the first service the first two Sundays of the month, and the second service the last two Sundays. Anyone is welcome to sing in the choir; no audition is necessary. Rehearsals are Thursdays at 6:45 p.m.

Adult Sunday School:  Adults meet in the Multi-Purpose Room at 9:20 a.m. throughout the school year.  The lesson is led by Pastor Roger.

Home Bible Study Groups:  Groups of up to twelve adults meet monthly in homes or the church.  Each group decides on the day, time, and book of study.  The Evangelism Committee helps set up new Home Bible Study Groups as the need arises.  Please contact the Pastors or a member of the Evangelism Committee if you are interested in becoming a part of a HBSG.


Youth choir:  The youth choir is open to young people from 3rd grade through high school who want to use their voices to make additional musical offerings. We rehearse on Saturday mornings and some Wednesday nights. Youth choir performs at worship services, as well as at the Christmas program and other times throughout the year. In addition, youth choir members who play instruments occasionally come together to perform, and the Prince of Peace Dance Troupe performs during the year.
