Jesus instructed believers to serve God by serving others. From the very beginning, the Brethren have found the joy in loving God through service. It is one of the ways we can express our gratitude for the gift of God's grace
The body of Christ at Peters Creek Church of the Brethren serves the community in many ways. Some of our ministries include:
