A Transformative Carrollton Church
We believe that God has called Prince of Peace to join Him in His Mission by actively engaging our community through the building of relationships with families in our local community.
We partner with McWhorter Elementart to support families through classes, annual events and assisting families in need with meals and school supplies. We encourage and support parents, staff and administrators as they desire to build a strong, healthy community.
We invite and encourage you and your family to engage and serve in the lives of others. Check out the opportunities to serve below. Get involved today! Contact Barb vonBehren.
Back To School Bash
Every summer, Prince of Peace and local churches and businesses join together in this expression of Christ-like compassion for the families of local public schools, apartments and our international mission efforts.
street party outreach
Live music and life-giving love! Join us in this annual October outreach to our community! Bring the whole family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to show our love for the Carrollton community in a BIG WAY! It’s a FREE PARTY on the streets of Prince of Peace. Trunk or treat, carnival games, live entertainment, pumpkin patch, family photos and a delicious meal prepared by the Holy Smokers!
tree of hope
Give a needy family the gift of hope for Christmas! Beginning the first Sunday in Advent, the Tree of Hope is loaded with lots of “angels” who are hoping for a Christmas surprise! These angels are families in need from our apartment communities and local public schools. Questions? Want to help? Contact Carol Slawson.
Prince of Peace Christian School
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church partners with the staff and families of Prince of Peace Christian School to love God, nurture students and their families, and help shape the future. Because we are next-door neighbors with a long history of shared ministry, Prince of Peace Church desires to be a faithful resource to the staff and families of this second-to-none school in any way we can!

Lutheran World Missions
Prince of Peace is helping spread the gospel around the world through Lutheran World Missions.
Our church is currently supporting missionaries in New York to help plant churches and raise up Christian communities. We send short-term teams from Prince of Peace to Peru each summer to support the ongoing efforts of a local missionary. Additionally, we support Ndoto: For Africa’s Future, a Christ-centered community development organization that works in the Obunga slum of Kisumu, Kenya. Learn more about Lutheran World Missions.
