A story of remarkable generosity that will be benefitting our community of faith in some very significant ways in the years to come. It is sure to impact each of us and our common calling to be the church together in this place.

It has been several years since we had a “Time & Talent” sign-up. We are compiling a new database of all helpers. This is an opportunity to review all the ways you could contribute to the life of the community of Prince of Peace. It takes a lot of worker bees to keep the hive humming!
Telling the Creation Story helps to model stewardship. God has abundantly blessed us with this earth on which to live. As “stewards” of creation, it is our job to respect the earth and take care of it, as it is God’s to begin with. Children and youth often understand this analogy well, as they are already exposed to the concepts of caring for creation. However, there are many other ways to teach and model stewardship through the offering of money, time, prayer, and worship — just to name a few.
