This men’s group is focused on outreach projects in our  community, along with a very special commitment to Crossways Camping Ministries.  Money raised from their Strawberry “Sundae” Sunday, Pizza Sale, and Valentine’s Dinner go toward projects  at the  Crossways Camping Ministries facilities.   Visit their link at www.peacelc.org.

Men@Peace meet the first Saturday of each month at 8:00 am in the donut room for fellowship, devotion, and a short meeting.  If you are interested, please attend one of our meetings.
