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 Saturday, January 24 at 1 pm, join PoP Playgroup at the Kentlands Mansion for the Childrens Movie Sing-along. 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!
A Potluck lunch will be held on Sunday, January 25 following the late service, prior to the Annual Congregational Meeting at 1:00 pm.
Come pretend it's summer with the PoP Playgroup on Saturday, February 21st from 2-4 pm at the Germantown indoor swim center (18000 Central Park Circle). 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!
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.
