BBQ and WORSHIP IN THE PARK 


We've had 2 terrific BBQ/worships in the park.  Thank you to Cub for donating the meat and buns, to members of prince of peace who provided the side dishes and to the men's group for cooking up the meat.  Our goal is to get to know our neighbors not only here at Prince of Peace, but people who live in the neighborhood surrounding church.  

 

It worked!    

 

Our final BBQ/worship Wednesday in the park will be Wednesday, August 26.  It's the same drill, we'll grill and ask members to bring sides.  We eat and then worship with the community.  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.  

OUT REACH TEAM


OUT REACH TEAM NEEDS YOU!
Galatians 5:13-14 ...
     You, my brothers, were called to be free.  But do 
     not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; 
     rather, serve one another in love.The entire law is
     summed up in a single command: 
     "Love your neighbor as yourself."

 The Outreach Team at Prince of Peace needs some help.  We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm in the Welcome Center.

We need YOUR help to continue to serve th
e church's mission of  "GROW DEEP" and  "REACH OUT".  We have already built some really great relationships with places like Brooklyn Avenues-Youth Homeless Shelter, Loaves & Fishes Free Meal, Park Brook, CEAP and others. 

Prince of Peace is very committed to working to grow outreach programs.  We ask for your help to continue to expand this very important ministry.

Contact Richard Habstritt at 763-233-2493 or email richardjhab@gmail.com with questions or to join the team.

Thank you!
Richard Habstritt 

Adult Education Opportunity  

coming soon!


For The Life of the World - a unique film series and  discussion led by Pr Chad, on Wednesdays for 6 weeks, beginning September 16th.  

 

For the Life of the World is an entertaining film series that explores the deeper meaning of Salvation. Have you ever wondered, "What is my Salvation actually FOR?" Is it only about personal atonement, about getting to heaven, or something that comes later? Is it just to have a "friend in Jesus?"

 

Join Evan Koons and his friends - Stephen Grabill, Amy Sherman, Anthony Bradley, Makoto Fujimura, John M. Perkins, Tim Royer and Dwight Gibson - as they discover a "new perspective," the BIGGER picture of what it means to be "in the world, not of it. "This seven-part film series and companion Field Guide will help you, your friends, church or organization investigate God's Economy of All Things - OIKONOMIA (a Greek word that has a lot to say about God's plan for his creation, the world, and us.)

 

More info coming soon!

WORSHIP  


Ephesians 4:2-3 
   "Be completely humble and gentle;

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit 
 through the bond of peace."

 Miss a Sunday? Need to revisit a meaningful message? Want to share a message with a friend? Find it here.

MISSION JAMAICA 2016 


We are starting to make our plans in preparation for our 2016 mission work in Jamaica.  It is hard to believe that in less than 7 months we will be leaving to join our old friends and meet new friends at West Haven Orphanage, Faith and Vision Chapels and the communities where we visit and stay. 

 

In 2016 we will be spending three weeks in Jamaica. 

February 27 - March 5    West Haven Orphanage

March 5 - March 12         Vision Chapel

March 12 - March 19       Faith Chapel

 

You are welcome to come for one week, two weeks, or join us for all three.

 

We will be holding informational meetings in the next couple months so please watch the Enews, website, and announcements at church.  Prince of Peace has been making mission trips to Jamaica since 2004 - is this the year you are able to join us for a rewarding and fun experience of doing God's work in His world.

SEWING CLINIC IN JAMAICA  


SEWING CLINIC

 COPSE COMMUNITY, JAMAICA

September 2016

 

For the last 4 years a group from Prince of Peace has been spending a week in Jamaica with women from Faith Chapel in the Copse community teaching them how to sew.  Again this year we are blessed to be able to share this ministry with this community of Christian women.  Each year we have 6 new students who are excited to learn a new skill and as many returning students that can join us.  In the past we have made skirts, tops, dresses, kitchen curtain, pillow cases, sheets, etc.

 

This year Lori Clausen, Vicki Weber and Terri Revell will be  leaving on September 16th to not only hold the sewing clinic, but to meet new friends and renew old friendships.  We bring each new student a sewing kit with the basics equipment so that they may continue to sew during the year.   We also donate the material, which is purchased in Jamaica, that is used during our time with this group.  If you are interested in donating money for material or attending in 2017, please talk to Terri Revell (763-566-0807 or terri2192@msn.com).

 

Thank you for your continued support and prayers as we prepare to serve with our sisters in Jamaica by following God's call to be his hands and feet not only at home but in the world.

WELCOME TO PRINCE OF PEACE!


Welcome To Prince of Peace!

 Check out our  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!
