Spring & Summer Worship


10:15am      Worship

*No Sunday School*

Please join us after Worship Service for coffee in the fellowship hall!







From Pastor Ray Waetjen:



“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.”  2 Corinthians 4:8-10


The apostle Paul knew about stress.  Afflicted, perplexed, persecuted, and struck down – these situations were part of Paul’s everyday life,


For us, each day is filled with different levels of stress.  Regardless of occupation, age, social status, or lifestyle, we experience stress.  Some we bring on ourselves:  from poor planning, saying “yes” too often, or being disorganized.  Hopefully we learn our lesson so it will not happen again.  Stress also comes from factors outside our control:  the weather, a broken computer, an unexpected difficulty, or sorrow.  At those times, we can only control our reactions to the stress.  Our reactions reveal our character and our trust in God.


We do not need to be swallowed up or “lose heart” in the stresses of life because God can renew us on the inside day by day.  As 2 Corinthians 4:16 tells us:  “We do not lose heart.  Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”  This life is temporary.  Our home in heaven is eternal.  In the meantime, we can lean on Jesus, for Jesus promises peace in the middle of stress.  John 14:27  “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.  I do not give to You as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”


Because of Jesus,

Pastor Ray

Board of Education – Open Positions!

Have you ever wondered how or who decides on non-Sunday morning worship programming at Prince of Peace? Who plans Sunday School? Who decides on fundraisers and mission trips? Who makes decisions and visions for the youth and families as it pertains to Faith Education? Why, I’m so glad you asked! It’s your       BOARD OF EDUCATION! And we have a couple openings! If you are a mature believer who is looking for a way to use your gifts to serve and edify the body of Christ at Prince of Peace, we might be looking for you! 

This year the Board of Education will oversee Vacation Bible School, the National Youth Gathering, Sunday School curriculum, fundraisers, Wednesday night programming, reconciliation ministry, service projects, Family Gatherings, and much, much more! We’re a busy board and we’re always looking for how God is leading us! If God is calling you to serve in this way, please talk to Kendra Vaught (Chairman) or Lisa Ballard (Youth and Family Minister). Thank you!



Please Remember:


Sunday August 5th right after worship we will have a brief voter’s meeting to vote on whether to issue the recommended Pastoral call.  Please be praying for God’s will to be made clear to us as we together consider extending the call.  

In Christ,  The Call Committee


Training/Planning Meeting for all Soundboard Operators:

will be held following the Voter’s Meeting..  Anyone interested is invited to attend this training!   Questions or concerns please contact, Keith Cronrath.
