Prayer Around the Cross: May 16th

Wednesday, May 16th at 7:07pm

What a blessed time of prayer at the end of the day. We gather in the sanctuary literally around a cross and sing, pray, listen for God’s Word in scripture and sit in contemplative silence. We pray for our world and for friends in need, for strangers and for our work as God’s people here.

As we do, we light candles and place them around the cross as a way of helping us recall those for whom we pray and the One in whose name we gather. It is a peaceful way of ending a busy day, as we gather with brothers and sisters to sit before our Lord in prayer.

Invite a friend and come to this brief time of worship.

Shrove Tuesday – The Feast Before the Fast

Tuesday, February 13 at 6pm

This day before the disciplines of Lent begin is a traditional day of feasting. On Mardi Gras at PoP, we’ll continue our traditional way of marking this feast time by serving pancakes and everything you might imagine would accompany such a meal. The feast begins at 6pm. Don’t forget the children will also be burying their Alleluia banner as a part of the celebration and will wait to “resurrect” it on Easter Sunday. All proceeds over the cost of this event will go to helping our high school youth go to camp this summer.

Peace Garden Dedication

Sunday, February 4 at 10AM we will gather in the garden for special prayers of dedication and thanksgiving.

As a part of our Celebrate our Past Build our Future effort, we devoted some of those gifts to the re-creation of our former playground area. The Peace Garden has emerged as a beautiful center of our campus and life here at Prince of Peace. Because many of our winter friends have helped it come to life, we have waited until now to pray God’s blessings in dedication.

Prayer Around the Cross – January 31

At times throughout the year, we periodically come together on Wednesday nights for a time of prayer. We call it Prayer Around the Cross. We gather near the steps of the chancel. You can sit in pews or in chairs on the side. Laid on the steps is a large cross with candles all around. The lights are a little lower.

As we pray, sing softly, listen to scripture and just sit in silence, you may choose to light a candle and set it beside the cross. The pastors will lead us in prayer for our world, nation and leaders. We pray for what is happening with our families, dear friends, workmates and strangers. We pray for ourselves – decisions, challenges and joys.

Join us on Wednesday January 31 at 7:07PM for Prayer Around the Cross.
