The spiritual growth of our membership is an important focus at Hills of Peace. Members of all ages, from preschoolers to adults are offered a number of means of exploring their faith.
Beginning Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 7pm we will have our first session of our next book study, "12 Steps to a Compassionate Life" by Karen Armstrong. The series will run for six weekly sessions and then continue in the fall with the final six sessions. Contact the church office for more information.
Occurs occasionally instead of the weekly sermon. Past series have used Reclaiming the "L" Word by Kelly Fryer and Opening the Bible by Robert Kysar. During these times, the sermon is replaced by an open forum whereby the entire congregation is engaged in discussion. These series offer an excellent opportunity to discuss and explore our faith. Watch for information on upcoming sermon series.
A highlight of our services, while primarily aimed at the children, the children’s sermon has become a learning tool for us all. Discusses the scripture readings at a level more easily understood by our youth.
Hills of Peace Sunday School allows the children of our congregation to explore their faith in a classroom setting. Classes run each Sunday during worship from September to the end of May. All children aged three through grade six are welcome.
The Sunday School program follows the church year and uses the readings in the service to help the children to connect their faith with their daily living.
Generally beginning when students enter seventh grade at school, confirmation classes offer our youth the opportunity to explore their faith and take responsibility for their own spiritual growth. Classes run from September to Pentecost Sunday (late May or Early June).
Our adult education series explore both individual books of the Bible and specific topics such as basic questions like Who is God and Who is Jesus Christ. This group currently meets on Wednesdays between 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
