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. 
LEAVE a LEGACY ENDOWMENT FUND

The Prince of Peace Endowment Fund has been established to provide ongoing support of programs of Prince of Peace and our ministry to the community not supported by the general budget.

Each year 5% of the total fund balance may be distributed. Approximately 50% of the distribution goes for capital and building purposes. The other 50% of the distribution is granted for benevolence and program purposes.

Please click HERE or more information on the fund and how to contribute to it in memory of or in honor of a loved one.

Operation Christmas Child Update: As most of you know, we have been doing Operation Christmas Child for years. However, this coming School Year we are going to take a different approach. Therefore, at this time we are no longer in need of shoe-boxes. If the need for boxes comes up again, we will let you know. More details will be coming at a later date.
 
Plant Sale: We still have a few annuals and hanging baskets left. If you are interested, find Katie or Brent on Sunday morning and we can help you out. Thank you once again for making our plant sale a huge success: Even the greenhouse was impressed by the size of our order!

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!
