??Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner??

February 16, Saturday Evening at 6PM

A fun evening of delicious food, delightful conversation and a room full of “mystery guests!” Everyone who signs up (singles & couples!) will be paired with 4 to 6 other people for a dinner party.

Be a Host, Be the Cook or be a Guest!

The Twist | You won’t know who’s ‘coming to dinner’ until everyone shows up at the hosts home – not even the host! You’ll receive directions, info on the main course, and the number to prepare for. Sign up by February 10th at the red & white checked box, at poplargo.org, or by contacting Faye: 727.585.9969, faye@poplargo.org.

Go & Do Likewise Weekend 2019

Save the date – Friday & Saturday, March 15th & 16th!

Each year the wonderful people of Prince of Peace join forces to help those in our community who help others. We cook, clean, care, perform, paint, rake, pray and anything else that is helpful. You can stay right here at the church to do God’s work for those in need, or you can work on-site at agencies like Kimberly Home, Clearwater Free Clinic, Pinellas Hope, Clothes to Kids, Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Lighthouse for the Blind and many more.

Work an hour to two or the whole weekend. Have fun and make friends – more than 150 of our members help out each year.

Questions? Contact a team leader – Faye, 727.585.9969 (faye@poplargo.org) OR Pam, 727.709.3668 (pkeehni@aol.com).

It falls between the observance days of the Confession of Peter [January 18] and the Conversion of Paul [January 25]. It is our honor to host this event in 2019.

We will worship together with brothers and sisters in Christ from many different congregations. There will be a joint choir to support our song. Kirk Ray Smith, President/CEO of Religious Community Services will be our speaker. Join us for this special time of worship.

Prayer Around the Cross: October 24

Last month’s prayer around the cross brought together over 60 of us—children, youth and adults—to share in a blessed time at the end of the day. We gather in the sanctuary literally around a cross, and we sing, pray, listen for God’s Word in scripture and sit in contemplative silence. There is no rush.

We pray for our world and for friends in need, for strangers and for our work as God’s people here. Some friends choose to light candles and place them around the cross, as a way of helping us recall those for whom we pray. They reflect the Light in whose name we gather. Come for a peaceful moment at the end of an otherwise hectic day, surrounded by brothers and sisters in Christ—all in prayer. Invite and bring a friend.
