Jesus formed his first disciples into a community and empowered them, through word and deed, to share that relationship and community with one another and others in the world. Jesus calls us to do the same.
We enjoy spending time together and invite others to join with us! We have a variety of small groups that get together regularly, including both Women's and Men's book groups, PoP Playgroup (for families with very smal children); PoP Rocks (our Young Adult Group); and Empty Nesters (for adults who don't - or usually don't! - have kids at home).
We have a number of special events throughout the year that help everyone to bond and have fun together, including especially our annual Yard Sale; our Shrove Tuesday Pancake supper and other big meal events; periodic Coffeehouse event featuring special music; and our popular Tables for All adult fellowship program in which potluck meals are shared in our homes with other members of Prince of Peace.
On Thursday, October 23 at 7:30 pm, the Men's Book Club will discuss The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. All men of Prince of Peace and their male friends are cordially invited. Please RSVP to host Steve Von Wald.
“The Great Pumpkin is coming!" The PoP Halloween Party will welcome the Peanuts gang on Friday, Oct. 24 @ 6pm. We will also have Trunk-or-Treating in the parking lot at 7pm! Come join us for fun, food and games!
On Saturday October 25 at 9:30 am (immediately following Men’s Group Bible study) we will honor Larry Speicher by installing a plaque near “Speicher’s Run”. This is a creek down below the PoP property line where Larry organized many clean-up events. This area was also the site of a baptism in August of 2012. All are welcome.
Annual Auction & Music for All! ~ Grab a friend and join us on Saturday, November 15th for an evening of food, music, deals and fellowship! The evening will kickoff with the 5pm service followed by a pasta dinner and an evening of music, drinks and a silent auction.
The Hoedown has been postponed for several months. Watch the announcements for the new date.
We also care about making use of our church community and our fellowship together to share and partner with others in our wider community.
For example, Prince of Peace hosts two Narcotics Anonymous groups each week (Mondays at 8 pm in the Fellowship Hall & Wednesdays at 8 pm in the Youth Center.)
We regularly partner with the American Red Cross to host blood drives at the church.
Our community gardens, named Fruitful Fields, allow church members and others to grow their own vegetables as well as to tend common areas on which we grow food for Gaithersburg HELP.
And, each week our Quilting Group gathers to make quilts, which are distributed to those in need throughout the US and the World through Lutheran World Relief.
