March Adult Education Class:

Ministries of Mercy Web Button 2018

“Ministries of Mercy”
Leader: Chip Ueltschey

Like the wounded man on the Jericho Road, there are needy people in our path – the widow next door, the family strapped with medical bills, the homeless man ourside our place of worship.  God calls us to be ministers of mercy to people in need of shelter, assistance, medical care, or just friendship.  But just how far does this call go, and how do we best respond?

 Join us in CLC Room 125 at 9:15am Sundays in March for an authentic and challenging discussion of Christian Mercy and Compassion with Leader Chip Ueltchey.

 

 

 

 April Adult Education Class:

Resurrection in the Gospel of John Web Button“Resurrection in the Gospel of John:  Early Christian Expositions of the Fourth Gospel”
Leader: Dr. Michael Thomas, Concordia University

Join Dr. Michael Thomas, Professor of Early Christian History and Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Concordia, in exploring how the Early      Church Fathers interpreted the resurrection of Christ.  We’ll examine the 4th Gospel through the commentaries and homilies that the Fathers wrote for the benefit of their own congregations and the larger Church.  While the majority of these writings have been locked up in ancient languages and proved inaccessible to English speakers, Dr. Thomas has recently translated these texts for The Church’s Bible commentary series.   Their value, however, is not just historical; many of the homilies and commentaries produced by the fathers for their congregants speak to the same questions and concerns of Christians today.

 

 

 

 

We hope that you will join us for these classes at 9:15am each week, in CLC room 125!

 

 

Children ages 4 yrs through 8th Grade

Sunday School at Prince of Peace is a Rotational Model – which means that kids learn the weekly lessons in a variety of settings. One week they will go to “Storytelling”, another week they will do a special activity like cooking, or a learning game, another week they will do music, or a special Bible craft. All sections help tell and re-tell the details of God’s love in the timeless stories of the Bible!

As a Service Project, we are currently offering our Dayschool “Adopt-a-Teacher” program.  Look for the display in the Church Entry, and select a Teacher to “Adopt” for the coming School Year!  It’s a great way to support and encourage our Teachers, and to get to know more about them. It’s also a great hands-on service opportunity for your whole family that everyone can participate in, as you practice sharing God’s Love by sending uplifting notes, baking special treats, providing small gifts for Birthdays and Christmas, and overall lifting up your “Adopted” Teacher for the School year!

Classes begin each week with a special Devotional Opening at 9:15am in the Church Sanctuary for children’s classes that includes songs, special announcements, and more.  After the opening, at 9:30am, kids follow their Shepherds to various activities based on their grade.  Join us each Sunday during regular Sunday School classes throughout the year –  from “Story Time” to “Bible Crafts” to “Faith Café” there is something for everyone!!  Plan to be a part of Sunday School this year, and spread the word to all your friends!

Youth GroupYouth Group meets every Sunday at 9:15am in “The Cave” – our Youth Room downstairs in the main Church Building. It’s a great place for hanging out, for learning, growing, and sharing faith.  We are currently engaged in a discussion about the validity of the Bible as God’s source of truth for the world.  If you are curious about the value of Scripture and whether the Bible has the ability to stand up under close inspection then come and join us, and bring your questions!!  This class is designed for everyone in Grades 9-12, and friends are always welcome!  See you this Sunday at 9:15am in the PoP Youth Room!
