SUMMER SCHEDULE

Clink here for a message from Pastor Chad.
In this video, Pastor Chad talks about the summer series that started on Wednesday, June 4th.  If you missed Wednesday this message will give you a preview of what's coming up.

Sunday
Worship 9:30 am (coffee around 9 am) 

June 8 is our first food truck Sunday!  Kabomelette will be here from 10:30-11:30.  They serve lots of brunch/breakfast stuff (omelets, hash, etc) and then a few lunch things (kabobs).  They are awesome and really excited to try this one Sunday and they'll sign up for more depending on how it goes.  GET THE WORD OUT ..  be a part of worship and then eat together!  It's going to be great!! 

 
Sunday Think Again!  10:30 am Sunday morning discussion series.  
     -"Wow, that sermon really got me thinking!"

     -"I have been hearing that bible passage my whole life and have

        never thought about it that way before."

     -"That was a challenging message. I would love to learn more about

       how I could live it out in my own life."

This is the kind of feedback we receive week after week about the sermons here at Prince of Peace. Wouldn't it be great to sit down with the preaching pastor right after the service to learn a bit more or ask follow up questions on what you just experienced in worship? Our summer worship schedule gives us the perfect opportunity to do just that.  Plan on grabbing a cup of coffee after worship and joining the preaching pastor (Chad this week) for an engaging 30 minute discussion about the sermon preached during the service. We'll keep these Think Again conversations going throughout the summer as another way to grow deep so we are better equipped to reach out!

 

Wednesday Potluck each Wednesday beginning at 5:30 pm. 
Each Wednesday needs a host who would decide on a main dish (like sloppy joes, hot dogs, hamburgers, etc) fix it, set-up and clean-up.  The rest of the meal is potluck.  Main dish receipts are turned into the office for reimbursement.  If you would be willing to host a Wednesday night meal, call the office at 763-560-8958 or email lynellk@princeofpeacechurch.org.  Attached is a document to sign up on to serve communion and/or host a Wednesday meal.

Wednesday Worship is at 6:30 pm in the CLC.

TANZANIA VISION TRIP 2014

 18 people are making their final preparations to depart on June  12 for the 2014 Vision Trip to Tanzania.  Most of the group will depart from Minneapolis and connect through Chicago on our way to Amsterdam. From there we will switch airlines and fly into the Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It will be about a 24 hour journey from the time we leave until we arrive!  Please keep the group in your prayers and follow their daily adventures by visiting the blog Pastor Chad will post from Africa whenever they have access to the internet.
