King of Peace Episcopal Church
You are always welcome at King of Peace Episcopal Church. We are a caring community that welcomes a variety of spiritual gifts as we share our journey of faith. Our vision statement highlights the heart of our ministry which is focused on “Bringing God’s Children into Communion with Christ.” King of Peace is an Episcopal Church and a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia and The Episcopal Church nationwide. The name, “Episcopal,” comes from the Greek word Episkopos meaning bishop. We are a Christian church guided by our bishops, served by our priests and deacons (as ordained ministers) supporting the work and witness of the majority of our ministers, the baptized members of our church.
As a part of the Episcopal Church, King of Peace is also part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which has 70 million members in countries circling the globe. The Anglican Communion began with the Church of England, but has spread well beyond its English roots. The typical Anglican today is African or South American rather than an Anglo-Saxon as the name Anglican implies. Our pastor, Frank, served as an intern in an Anglican Church in Tanzania in the summer of 1998 and has experienced first hand the vibrancy of the church in Africa.
