Welcome to Raleigh Mennonite Church’s Peace Camp! On Saturday, June 15, we will host kids from 4 years old through 5th grade for an all-day workshop on peace-building from 9 am – 3 pm at 1116 N. Blount St.

We are bringing in experts from around the Triangle area to lead us in singing, acting, practicing yoga, playing, and creating in ways that help us all to become peacemakers in our own contexts.  Please join us!

Guns to Garden Tools – Coming Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017

Poster promoting the Guns to Garden Tools Event.

Update: Thanks to all those who came out for the service and afternoon event. You can listen to Mike Martin’s message. More photos and videos will be added soon.

RAWTools takes guns and melds them into garden tools.

They’ll be joining us from Colorado on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017 for this event focused on bringing attention to the two-thirds of gun deaths in the U.S. — completed suicide.

From 12-4 pm we’ll have opportunities to consider the ways to engage in peacemaking through an art fair and raffle.  All proceeds go towards gun violence prevention in North Carolina.

We’ll have children’s projects, a food truck, and art demonstrations, along with resources on mental health.

At 10:30 that morning we’ll have a worship service to remember and lament gun violence in our country.

Join us!
