New Year Giving Message

The new year has begun - 2021.  We’ve seen church families band together to help each other and support our congregation with time, talent and financial contributions. And we are so thankful for this.
However, we need your participation in giving.  A potential new year’s resolution is to give X% more each month.  It has been difficult for us to receive your offerings since we are not all together and passing the plate.  Many of you, like putting your envelope in the plate.  The church continues to operate and has expenses even though we are not worshipping in person.  Since we can’t all gather in person to worship right now; Prince of Peace encourages you to use the eGiving tools to make your commitment for giving and to give.  It is really easy.  All you need is a computer or smart phone.  Then you go to this article, and click on the link below.  It takes you to the giving app.  If you haven’t done this before, you will need to set up an account which takes 2-3 minutes only.  Once that is done, you can set up an automatic payment to POP on whatever cycle you wish to give.

Go to GivePlus Church here.

Or you can mail your giving to the church at 3625 SW Wanamaker Road, Topeka, KS. 66614 or to Brad Hammel's CPA firm located at 2800 SW Wanamaker Road, Topeka, KS. 66614.
Our church needs your financial support.  

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7”






This Week's Worship Services

Sunday, January 24, 2021

Third Sunday after Epiphany

In the Gospel reading, we learn of the first disciples who were called, called to share the good news of Jesus. They learned of Jesus’ mission first hand. We learn of the good news by reading the Bible and believing that Jesus is our Savior. Be the visible word to our family and friends. 

Readings for the day:

1st Reading 

Jonah 3:1-5, 10

2nd Reading 

1 Corinthians 7:29-31

The Gospel of the Day

Mark 1:14-20


Lord God, heavenly Father, You desire not the death of a sinner but that all would repent and believe the Gospel. In the epiphany of Your Son, Your time of salvation and Your kingdom have come near. As this world passes away, give faithfulness and urgency to Your Church to proclaim the Gospel of our God to all people

Note from Pastor Mease

I pray good things to come for POP.   
A belated thank you to all who sent cards, gifts, thanks and well wishes to me in the time leading up to my departure.  I will keep Prince of Peace in my prayers.



NEW FLAGS will be needed.  Would you like to make a donation for new ones?  Mother Nature is hard on them, as they are out 24 hours a day!
This is not a budgeted expense, so if you could make a donation for them, it would be appreciated.
Donate on our on line giving app or contact the church office if you wish to donate.

Operation Food Secure

Distribution of food boxes and a gallon of milk will be distributed January 28th, February 11th, and February 25th at 3:30pm. It is a drive-thru at Prince of Peace and is for those who are having financial difficulties. 


Harvesters food distribution center is needing volunteers to work in their warehouse to sort and pack food and to distribute food at various locations. More information is available on their website God has given us time and energy to help others at this difficult time because of COVID. .
