WELCOME TO PRINCE OF PEACE!


Welcome To Prince of Peace!

 Check out our brand new welcome video! This professionally produced video will give visitors to our website a glimpse of what we are all about at Prince of Peace. The video can also serve as a fantastic way to invite others to Prince of Peace. We bet that you know at least three people who are not active members in a local congregation. Take a moment and send them a quick email with the link to this video. We also encourage you to share the video on your own Facebook page. It is an easy and effective way to let folks know about the wonderful outreach and ministry happening at your church and to let them know that they are invited!

FROM ASSOCIATE PASTOR NATALIA TERFA

    THANK YOU!  A huge and full-hearted (overflowing-hearted really) thank you to all of you who were present for my ordination in body and in spirit.  The cards, emails, notes on facebook, text messages, hugs, and face-to-face words of encouragement were overwhelming and humbling and I am so honored by your support and love.  You made a special day even more so, and I thank you.   - Pr Natalia

BBQ and WORSHIP IN THE PARK 


We'd like to get to know our neighbors here at Prince of Peace, not just people from Brooklyn Park, but people who live in the neighborhood surrounding our church.  One of the ways we are trying out this summer is by having a neighborhood BBQ and worship in the park. 

 

Our first one is Wednesday June 24th at 5:30pm with worship at 6:30pm at Hartkopf Park.  Bring chairs, picnic blankets and stay to sing and worship together.

 

This is one BIG way we can grow deep and reach out together!  We'd love to have you all join us.

Want to help or bring something?   Contact Natalia to get connected.  

  WORSHIP  


Psalm 47: 1-2
   "Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy. 
How awesome is the Lord Most High,
the great King over all the earth!"
