Life Together

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.

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.

Learn more about our small group activities.

Happening Soon...

Running on Faith! In preparation for the Montgomery County Interfaith 5k on September 3 for which Prince of Peace is a sponsor, we gather for a weekly training/Bible study for those interested. We meet one hour a week throughout the summer beginning after Memorial Day to read a Bible passage, run/walk for 30 min, then reflect on the passage while cooling down.  All fitness (and spiritual!) levels welcome. RSVP to Ric Kienzle if interested.

The Women’s Book Group will meet on August 9 at 7:30 pm to discuss Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Hosted by Debbie Chan. Please RSVP to Debbie.

Community Serivce

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 also 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.
