The Importance of Peace and Unity

In today's world, conflicts and wars seem to be an ever-present part of our lives. Whether it is in Ukraine or any other corner of the globe, the devastating consequences of war are undeniable. However, the season of Lent reminds us of the importance of peace, unity, and compassion. At Peace Church, we firmly believe that war is not the answer and strive to promote harmonious relationships within our community and beyond.

Understanding the True Meaning of Lent

Lent is a period of 40 days leading up to Easter, observed by Christians around the world. It is a time of reflection, repentance, and spiritual growth. During this season, we remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and seek to emulate His teachings of love, forgiveness, and peace.
