Values of King of Peace
As individuals, we all have things in life that we value. Knowing what you
value helps keep priorities in order. Groups have values as well as individuals and
keeping those values in mind can help guide a group in its common mission. The following

We know that strangers are a gift to us as a congregation. We welcome newcomers,
knowing that we will never be all we can become as a church without continually welcoming

to be ministered to by children. Taking part in church is based on gifts, rather than age.
||Ministry of all
Ministry is a job for all people, not just
professionals. The ministry of the church is led by the ordained persons, but all
Christians are to take an active part in ministry both in and outside of the church.
