Operation Homes will be at Prince of Peace the week of May 20-27.  There are many ways for you and your family/Bible Study group/Board to help!  Consider preparing a meal (for 6-8 people), hosting dinner (arriving at 5pm and eating with the guests) or staying overnight (arriving at 8pm and staying until 7am the next morning).  We have many veteran volunteers willing to help train you!  Please talk to Greg or Kristin Ulm or sign up in the narthex. Want to know MORE about the Operation Homes ministry?  Visit

For the May book group, we are reading Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig. We’ll meet May 6th at  5:30pm in the church library. More information and a sign-up sheet are on the bulletin board. Everyone is invited!

Are you someone who is willing to organize events that the congregation wants to participate in? Are you someone who is willing to plan meals on a large scale? Are you someone who can work well with a team? Are you good with people?  Is this you? PoPE is in dire need of a Director of Fellowship. Please talk to Pastor or Steve Tschiegg if this is somewhere you feel you are being called to serve.

You Can Play an Important Role in Our Stephen Ministry… Because you may know of a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or relative who is going through a difficult time and who could benefit from the focused care, encouragement, and support of a Stephen Minister. If you know of someone who is hurting, talk with one of our Stephen Leaders, Greg or Kristin Ulm or Pastor Haberkost. They can talk with you about how we can connect the person you know with one of our Stephen Ministers. It’s a great way for you to show how much you care! God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16b
