Special Giving

With no in-person services, Prince of Peace really needs your monetary support.

Also, above your normal giving, we need to show our love and support for others.  

1) We have the Angel Tree, that you won’t be able to see, but needs $25.00 gift cards, for Dillons, HyVee and Walmart.  When you are out shopping, can you pick up one or two, and drop it off at the church office by December 18 or at a drive-thru communion.  

2) We have the Love Fund, that is used to help many.  Can you give any extra to it?   Just put love fund in your memo and we will get it in the right place.  

3)We have Doorstep that needs food, items and things for their Christmas store.  Click here for more information about Doorstep needs.

Prince of Peace members, we are thankful that you can reach out and help others in need, you are appreciated.

Lord, thank you for members of Prince of Peace who are generous and considerate to others --especially at this time of the year. The members know that the need is greater this year because of the pandemic. Bless those who receive the gifts that are given, whether to meet their financial needs or their physical needs and for the prayers to you, for the gifts each one receives.  Amen.

This Week's Worship Services

Sunday, November 29, 2020

First Sunday in Advent

The church year begins with Advent.  Advent means 'coming into'.  The story of Jesus is the story of hope coming into the world.

Liturgical color is Blue or Purple - symbolizing anticipation and hope in our coming King.

The Advent wreath has 5 candles, 3 purple ones and 1 pink one and the large white candle, the Christ candle.   The first candle which is purpose signifies hope.  It is sometimes called the "prophecy Candle" in remembrance of the prophets, especially Isaiah, who foretold the birth of Christ.  It represents the expectation felt in anticipation of the coming of the Messiah.  The remaining candles will be discussed in the weeks to come.

Readings for the day:

1st Reading 
Isaiah 64:1-9
2nd Reading 

1 Corinthians 1:3-9

The Gospel of the Day
Mark 13:24-37

Advent Prayer

Heavenly Father, Advent is a time for remembering and reflecting on the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Father, I pray that you will turn our hearts toward you as Christmas approaches.  Let us not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season this year and miss the chance to celebrate the gifts of hope, peace, joy, love, that you sent to us on that first Christmas.  Amen.
