25 Days Of Trivia!
CELEBRATE 25 YEARS OF GOD'S LOVE AT PEACE!


The 25th Anniversary of Peace United Methodist Church is fast approaching! Join us as we celebrate our founding and our future at all three services on Sunday, January 15, 2017, at 8:15 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am.

Peace UMC, our church family and friends, will be celebrating 25 years of ministry, fellowship and memories. We hope that everyone can join us(current members and friends, founding members and former families, and everyone from the surrounding community). Dr. Bob Bushong, founding pastor of Peace UMC, will preach for our special anniversary worship servies and celebration of Baptismal Renewal. A brunch on the Portico will follow each service.

In the meantime, during the 25 days leading up to the 25th Anniversary Celebration Sunday, we present to you a review of our church history though daily trivia questions, with answers given the following day. If you can answer a trivia question and have more information to give about the subject, write it in down in an email and send it to Larry the Lay Leader who will then list your information with the answer for that trivia question. If you have more info or wish to correct something that you've seen, please don't hesitate to email us!

Take a trip down Memory Lane while celebrating who we are and helping to showcase our history to our newer members!

Day 25

Jan. 15, 2017
Welcome to the 25th day of the Peace UMC 25th Anniversary Trivia Chase! And so we've come to the end of our Peace UMC 25th Anniversary Trivia Chase. We've had fun examining some of the roots of our church here at Hunter's Creek. Now it seems only appropriate that we take some time to be thankful for the four pastors who have shepherded Peace UMC from its humble beginnings to the present. When you click the Answer Button you will be taken to a page which will include a photo and a brief biography for each of our pastors.

May God continue to bless Peace UMC as we move into the future!

Welcome to the 22nd day of the Peace UMC 25th Anniversary Trivia Chase Take a look at the photo at the left. This is not the question, but a bonus photo collage of Director of Music Ministries Greg Carswell on the occassion of his resignation from that staff position in order to spend more time on his personal spiritual growth and to participate as a member of the congregation.

You can see an enlargement of this photo on the website. His resignation was effective December 20, 1998. Peace UMC member Jonathan Morris agreed to become the Interim Director until Easter of 1998.
