Community Life

We enjoy spending time together and work to encourage small groups and other events. Our fellowship activities come from regularly scheduled events as well as special events that are a part of a celebration or other activity involving the congregation. For example, Tables for All is a dinner program that makes it easy to meet different people once a month. Eight people gather to have dinner at a “host” house and each guest brings a vegetable, bread, or dessert. Our potlucks commonly draw large crowds at the annual congregational meeting and other events.

  • Tables for All - Please join other folks from Prince of Peace for three fun dinners over the coming year. Tables for All is for all adults who like to eat and socialize - who doesn't? This is a great way to strengthen our community connections, meet new friends, and catch up with old friends. Sign up as a single or couple and you will be matched with others for potluck dinners at your home or elsewhere during the months of October/November, January/February, and March/April. Hosts provide the main dish and guests bring either salad, side dishes, or dessert. New this year are suggestions for optional theme dinners, table prayers to share, and canned food donations for Gaithersburg Help. The sign up sheet is in the narthex or contact Becky Carr for more information.
