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.
Yard Sale is back on May 30! Mark your calendars and plan to join us for "The Big One"!
On TUESDAY, JUNE 16TH, Dogfish Head Alehouse will donate 15% of ALL SALES (food, beverages, merchandise, gift cards, etc.) from both Dine In and Take Out orders to Gaithersburg HELP. Funds raised on that day will be used to directly support all of HELP's programs, including their pantry, infant needs, prescription and transportation.
Come and "get wild" with the PoP Playgroup on Saturday, June 20 at 11:00 am! We'll meet at Meadowside Nature Center to see the raptors outside and some of the bugs and snakes inside at well! 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.
