From Pastor David Zemke:


  I didn’t start out liking horse racing. Most children who aren’t horse fans, and I wasn’t one, don’t really enjoy it to begin with. On a less sanctified note I really only came to like horse racing because of the fun drinks and the derby pie. I pick my race favorites through an unscientific process, namely looking for moderate odds and a catchy name. And then I wait with bated breath to be disappointed!

            One thing that took some explaining was that the Derby is just one race, but they’ll have lots of races at the track that day. Now it makes sense. You don’t just call everybody to the track for a few moments of excitement. There will be lots of entertaining races with one big and important one to draw the crowd. And in between the races, while the track is retouched and horses are readied, there’ll be a break. Hopefully breaks for good food and or drinks!

            Our liturgical calendar from Advent to Pentecost is much like the Derby. There are sections of hard racing like the Advent and Lenten fasts. There are a few moments of victory, such as Christmas and Easter. Then there are some seeming breaks. The space between Christmas and Lent, and the space between Easter and the Ascension give us a little breathing room.

            Lest you think that it’s illicit to compare our liturgical life to a day at the track, the author of the book of Hebrews compares our whole life to a race. Hebrews 12:1 calls us to run with perseverance the race set before us. This isn’t just the race of our secular life, but also of our worship life. There are indeed parts of our communal worship life that are like a footrace. They’re grueling, they challenge us, and at the end we need a little rest. And after the race we’re allowed to train.

            In the season after Easter we’ve been preaching through the epistle to the Romans. We’ve had time to celebrate and now it’s time to train again. We watched Jesus run the race and in that race we won as well. The numbers have come in and we’ve all cashed in! But before the next post we have the opportunity to train for our race. St. Paul gives us this opportunity in his magisterial epistle. Let us train together to run that next race!




Congregational President: Len Crawford

Spring Voters’ Meeting: As per our constitution we are required to hold a voters meeting in May and November of each year. The PPC has decided that May 2, 2021 would be the best date. The meeting will be held in the sanctuary immediately following the 10:30 service.  We will make this meeting as short as possible to comply with State and local Covid requirements, and still bring everyone up to date on what is happening at POP. This is a very important meeting as we will be voting on several purposed revisions to the “Prince of Peace Constitution and By-Laws”. We will be sending out

a copy of the constitution for your review prior to the meeting. This should be easy for you to follow as the purposed changes will be highlighted in color. This vote on the purposed changes will be a written vote as many members have requested in the past. We will recap our current financial status, and financial projections for the balance of 2021. In addition, the chair persons from each board will give a short update on what they are working on and projects that have completed.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend this important meeting. Blessings, Len Crawford

If you have any questions or you'd like to be a part of the team that makes this VBS possible, please let Lisa Ballard know! See you on the rails!




Young Adult Small Group - Just an update on how this small group is going. We've been blessed to be meeting every Monday at 6 pm and study 1 Peter. It's been a blessing to see people who are eager to feast on the Word of the Lord and are seeking to grow in spiritual maturity. God has brought people from Prince of Peace, the community, believer, skeptic and doubters alike. Such a blessing to have this ministry! Please keep this, and all our small groups, in your prayers.

Also, if you are interested in being in a small group (it's my desire that each person at POP is) please come talk to me. We'd like to form more groups as the needs arise. 2 were started in 2020, and it would be great to keep that pace! Or, we have a handful of already established groups that would love more members. Let's talk!






Ladies Nights




Prince of Peace!
