Extraordinary purpose.

At Galilee Church, we believe that we are ordinary people endowed with extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Christ known. Join us as we connect, worship, grow, and serve.

Peacemakers

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

We’ve all known them: people who breathe grace. While you and I fly off the handle and end up making a situation worse, they seem to have a knack for reducing the emotional temperature of a room. Who are they, these “Peacemakers?” Where do they draw their remarkable strength and power?

In Peacemakers, Galilee’s four-week worship series in January, we’ll examine the way that leads through Jesus Christ to genuine peace.

Peacemakers:

  • January 8 – “Focus on God”
    Focus Scripture: Romans 12:9-18, Matthew 5:9
  • January 15 – “Find a Mirror”
    Focus Scripture: Ephesians 4:2, Matthew 7:5
  • January 22 – “Gently Restore”
    Focus Scripture: Galatians 6:1, Matthew 18:15
  • January 29 – “Go and Be Reconciled”
    Focus Scripture: Colossians 3:13, Matthew 6:12
