Worship Center Reloading…

What takes place in our Worship Center is our top priority. We bring our best to all that we do and that includes creating a worship experience that first and foremost glorifies Jesus Christ and secondly strengthens your faith.

Starting Sunday, June 13, our community will move into the Fine Arts Center at Prince of Peace Christian School for worship while we make significant upgrades to our Worship Center. Worship times will be 8:00 am traditional and 10:30 am contemporary.

You’ve Been Egged

Prince of Peace is on a mission to share the love of Jesus in the places we live, work, and play!

Who & When

Travel & Location

Participants will be traveling to Colorado via bus and fifteen passenger vans. We will be spending one night in Amarillo, TX at a host congregation. Lutheran Valley Retreat is nestled into the colorful Rocky Mountains near Divide, CO.

 

Cost & Details

The participant fee is $500. All fees cover the cost of transportation, food, lodging, and a t shirt. Financial assistance is available upon request. Registration can be found

The Mission

Youth will spend the first day at LVR to help prepare the facilities for disabled campers.  We will be helping build ramps, filling in ruts caused by flash flooding, and learning how to work with adults who have disabilities.  Tuesday through Friday youth will lead camp for disabled campers, leading them in a four-day, day camp which will allow these campers with special needs to have an once in a lifetime camp experience. Campers will have ranging functionality levels, and youth will be paired with a camper within their comfort level.

Some of the activities LVR has to offer are; horse back riding, hiking, climbing, archery, and much more!

Come provide lasting hope within the camper’s hearts.

The Camp

Lutheran Valley Retreat has been involved in ministry for over 60 years. With 200+ acres in the rugged Rocky Mountain outback, Youths will see a beauty unmatched throughout the country. Youths will stay in rustic cabins with bunks near a shower house and bathrooms. The picturesque landscape provides a perfect backdrop for growing closer to our Savior through serving,

singing and study. LVR is known for it’s quality programming,
friendly staff, and its secluded location.Following our four days of service, youths will have a day to participate in the more advanced camp experiences. Youth and adults will go on a sunrise hike up Cedar Mountain, (Jeremiah’s favorite place on the planet), partake in challenge course, high ropes course,

bouldering, rock climbing, and much more.

After our week at Lutheran Valley Retreat, our group will conclude the mission trip with an relaxing afternoon in Manitou Springs, which will be the trip’s “touristy” stop. Youths will be able to pick up Colorado souvenirs, purchase snacks, candy, or play in the historic penny arcade.

COVID Procedures & Care

Like many of us who have encountered 2020, we have an extreme apprehension to making future plans. The Colorado Mission Trip will do everything within our power to create a safe and welcoming space to allow all to feel comfortable. To facilitate this goal the following guidelines will be established and held:

* Face masks will be worn anytime
participants and chaperones are
indoors and outdoors when six foot social distance cannot be maintained.

* Temperature checks will be conducted twice a day and logged.

* Lodging arrangements will be
limited to 50% capacity to allow for extra social distancing.

* Dinning will be conducted a socially distant way in which seating is spread out and food is served individually.

 

Along with these guidelines, the following consideration will be made: 100% of the participant fee will be refunded to a family if the participant contracts COVID-19 or is placed in mandatory quarantine due to being a close contact. Please contact Jeremiah Bauer as soon as the inability to participate presents itself.

Trip Expectations

I commit to maintaining my faith through prayer, Bible Study and Christian Fellowship. Also I will spend time with God so I may know Him more and have Him living in me more.

I commit myself to being an example of my faith and my role as a Christian during ministries at church, at youth events, at school, at work, at home and anywhere else I happen to be. I understand this also includes online and understand that my virtual life is a reflection of my real life.

I commit myself to being an example, as a shining light for Jesus and as a leader among my peers and youth ministry, wherever I may be. I will especially do these at the Colorado Mission trip, and events leading up to the mission trip.

I commit myself to being a regular attendee at High school ministries and at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church worship services. I will be present at least one half of all events and will encourage others to attend.

I will also attend all pre-trip meetings.
