New small group: Cooking with Jesus!

For the month of August, we are starting a new small group called Cooking with Jesus. Wednesday nights from 6 to 7:30 PM, at the home of Jan & Chuy Martinez, 8062 W Sands Drive, just 5 minutes from Circle in Peoria. The evening will be one-part Bible study and discussion, one-part prayer and share, and one-part cooking show! Jan & Chuy are super chefs, and we will begin each night with a food tasting or a cooking demonstration in their kitchen. (FYI the food will be awesome but we’ll be serving samples and not a full meal). Pastor Jeremy will lead discussion most nights.

Professional childcare available at Circle of Peace from 5:30-8:00 PM, grades 5th and under.

If possible, please RSVP to Jan at jan.orphan@e3partners.org or on her cell phone (858-774-3833) so they know how many food samples to prepare.

Circle of Peace supports Tierra Nueva and The Underground Coffee Project by purchasing their coffee and serving it at our services.

Tierra Nueva accompanies men and women leaving America’s “underground” of crime, jail, prison, addiction, debt, and living in the shadows. Together they find a community of belonging, compassion, and they put their hands to new work.

Some of these recovering ex-offenders are now small-batch, artisan coffee roasters.
