Christ Church of Peace is a worshipping and ministering community of believers on a spiritual journey of discovery and growth with a Christian foundation, embracing aspects of other faiths, and welcoming people of all races, genders, sexual orientations and special needs and/or challenges.
Sundays ~ 10:30 AM
Each Sunday we gather for a service that is a blended style worship that includes contemporary and traditional styles in our music, prayer, teaching, preaching, and communion. Conveniently scheduled -- neither too early nor too late -- our service moves quickly from chiming of the hour to fellowship. Regardless of your faith or denominational background, you will feel comfortable and at home with family and friends in our place of worship. Come, visit us on Sunday and experience the warmth of a friendly place you can call your spiritual home.

Sundays ~ 9:30-10:15 AM
Our Video Bible Study of Luke's Gospel is coming to the end and soon we will be starting a study of the book of Acts of The Apostles starting on Sunday April 14. The book of Acts is a continuation of Luke and both are believed to have been written by the same author. Again we will be using the videos featuring Dr. Mickey Efird. His straight forward contextual interpretatiom helps you understand what the scriptures say and what they mean to us today. Dr. Efird has been training pastors for over 40 years at Duke Divinity School and delivering his acclaimed Bible studies in churches of most denominations. The study of Acts will last 19 weeks. Join us Sunday's 9:30-10:15 in the CCOP conference room. Each participant will receive a detailed workbook to further aid your study and to keep as a permanent reference.
There's still time for a quick break between our Bible studies and the beginning of Sunday services so C'mon join the discussions and learn.

(A Scripture to Meditate On)
1 Peter chapter 4: verses 8-11
8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”[a] 9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
