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.
Join the POP Women’s Book Group for fellowship and a lively discussion of Want Not by Jonathan Miles. Jamie Pflasterer hosts the gathering Thursday, March 12, at 7:30 pm. RSVP to Jamie
The Men's Book Club of Prince of Peace is heading for the prairies! Our March reading is Jim Fergus's One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd. We meet Thursday, March 19, 7:30 pm. All men of PoP and their male friends are invited to attend for a lively evening of discussion and fellowship. Please contact Charles Sullivan.
Join the PoP Playgroup on Saturday, March 21 at 9:30 am for breakfast at the Shady Grove Burger King (16004 Shady Grove Rd). Come enjoy coffee and chat while your children enjoy the huge indoor play structure! 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.
