Maybe you're looking for friendship or just a place to connect, laugh and have fun. Perhaps, in all of life's busyness, you're missing a place for spiritual connection and growth. Maybe you've always wished for a small group of women who will delve deeply with you into the stories of the Bible. Or, maybe you'd like to find a community of people with whom you can go out in the world and do good...
At Spirit of Peace, there is a place for you. We invite you to check out our many small group offerings:
Good discussions, good friends, good food, good guys...call Glenn at 425-746-0746.

Monday Night Theological Book Group
Join us from 7-8:30 p.m. any Monday at Bellewood Apartments (3710 Providence Point Dr SE in Issaquah) as we explore our latest good read. Our current book is "Gifts of the Dark Wood: Seven Blessings for Soulful Skeptics" by Eric Elnes. Pastor Dave facilitates...call him at 206-725-3785 for details.
Join Pastor Dave each Sunday right after worship for an always thought-provoking and rich discussion about the questions and issues raised in the sermon.
If you just cannot keep from singing (or playing an instrument), then the Spirit of Peace Choir is the place for you! A fun group of all ages -- and all levels of talent(!), we meet most Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m. to practice before worship. Led by our wonderful, funny, inspiring and incredibly gifted Music Minister, Linda Srb, we have great fun together! And we always end the year with a festive night of Christmas caroling, delicious food and holiday fun. Join us!
If you'd like to get to know others, both single or coupled, in a more personal and intimate setting, you'll love our small dinner groups! We take turns meeting in homes and an average group is usually about 7-8 people. Contact Paula at 425-391-6498 or Michelle at 425-313-5663 for more information.
Another meaningful way to connect is through service to others. Click here for more information about our Sunday Suppers and other small group mission projects. Call Suzanne at 425-391-0794.
Annual All-Church Retreat
Our annual retreat USED to be a small group gathering but is so much fun that it has since become a large group gathering! Typically held from Friday evening to Sunday noon on a weekend in March or April, we all come together for a few days of playful fun, singing, fantastic food, nature walks, youth activities, and always inspiring and soul-enriching discussions. One of the annual highlights is our "No-Talent" show each Saturday night, which is often followed by more singing and silliness late into the night. We meet at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum and share large houses (with plenty of privacy) and eat together in community...all in all, it never fails to delight. Everyone is welcome! Call Suzi at 425-941-6260 for information. Our 2016 Retreat will take place April 22-24. Join us!
If you want to know more about Spirit of Peace or just more about the United Church of Christ in general, just check in with Pastor Dave at 206-725-3785. He periodically leads groups of new visitors in a couple of afternoon sessions of food, fellowship and discussion about what we're all about. It's a great opportunity to get to know some other new visitors and members as well as those who've been around for awhile!
