CONGREGATIONAL SURVEY

Can you take one minute, right now, and take our Congregational Vitality Survey? It's a short survey, around 10 minutes or less, and will help us better understand what aspects of our congregation are promoting vitality.

If you want to know why we're doing it - click here for more info. 

We will have a meeting to discuss these results at some point in the future.  There will be paper copies in the office that people can fill out and we'll enter here at POP.  
THANK YOU!

In this time of new life springing up all around us, we would like to take a moment and publicly thank all the volunteers who make Prince of Peace continue to thrive and grow.
 
To those of you working to make things happen, organizing and preparing tirelessly behind the scenes, ...thank you.

To those of you who give up a little extra time relaxing at home on a Sunday morning to come hold doors for people, set up and serve communion, and count offering,  ... thank you.

To those of you sharing your gifts through reading, writing, leading, singing, teaching, cooking, serving, cleaning, fixing... thank you.

Please know that your contributions to the life of the church here at Prince of Peace are not unnoticed, and definitely not unappreciated. We don't say it as often as we think it - but we think it a lot. 

So thank you.

Thank you for saying yes, for stepping up and stepping in, and being Prince of Peace alongside us.

It's an honor to serve in this place with you -
Pr Chad and Pr Natalia
 
"I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now..."

CAN YOU HELP?

Looking for Short Term Housing 
Deb Halton.

Hello,

My name is Deb Halton, and I am a member of POP. I am looking for a shared space, preferably my own bedroom with private bathroom. I would be willing to live with someone older and share a living space. I am going to be undergoing surgery - Hip Replacement, most likely at the end of May and I need something that's affordable and in proximity to Brooklyn Park. I am interested in moving at the end of April, 2016.

My partner, Bob Petersen and I have sold the house in Elk River and he is moving down to California by the end of June. I will be residing in Minnesota until the end of this year and then joining him and his family in California.

I appreciate your time and support,
Deb Halton

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!
