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.
Please join us for a dine out fundraiser supporting the ELCA Youth Gathering trip this summer to Detroit. Not Your Average Joe's in Kentlands has chosen the POP Youth fundraiser as their April Not Your Average Cause program. This means that every Tuesday in April they will donate 15% of all purchases (lunch or dinner) made by Prince of Peace Lutheran supporters. Diners do need to present the servers with Not Your Average Cause certificates.
Get ready for the beach and join PoP Playgroup on Sunday, April 26 from 4-6pm at the Germantown Indoor Swim Center. PoP Playgroup is a great way for families and their babies/ toddlers/ preschoolers to connect with each other. Please contact Jamie or Lauren with any questions!
Prince of Peace will be at Kentlands Day on Saturday, May 2, from 10 am to 3 pm! Stop by our booth and visit us!
Yard Sale is back on May 30! Mark your calendars and plan to join us for "The Big One"!
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.
