About Us

BIBLE STUDIES

Equipping Frontline Missionaries

Our emphasis this year is Equiping Frontline Missionaries with the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
 
We are children of God, baptized into His family for His special purpose. We celebrate this renewed identity by living in His call to Mission for eternity. Our faith and witness is nurtured by the Holy Spirit to actively follow Him into the places He is working to redeem and restore His relationships. This Mission starts at home and moves with us wherever we go.
 
We desire to nurture a revolutionary attitude in believers for ministry in a world that has minimized churches yet seeks an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and His people. We encourage spiritual formation and authentic community while engaging our culture with God’s love and truth through Jesus Christ.
 
Our Bible studies and small groups support this church wide emphasis. Together we nurture relationships where God’s love prevails through:

1. The Bible where the saving love of God for us in Jesus Christ is revealed

2. Prayer were our hearts align with God

3. People whom He sends us out to meet and share the the life-saving message of Jesus Christ

 
Christian life is a journey. Jesus leads and we follow. For the journey, we’ve been given a roadmap called the Bible. Prince of Peace offers a wide array of Bible studies each Sunday and throughout the week.

Jesus Centered Life

April 23 – May 28
Are you determined to know Jesus Christ, not just admire Him? Discover God’s life transforming love, and become a follower, not just a fan. This approach challenges “Jesus is a nice guy” versus a Savior who passionately transforms everyone and everything without fear. Participants will learn how to engage people with God’s Truth in a world of half-truths and lies. Based on the book Jesus Centered Lif, by Rick Lawrence.

These ongoing Bible study groups wrestle with God’s Word and discover meaningful conversations and prayer times that are critical to their weekly rhythms of faith.

You will meet people of faith who see God’s Mission and respond to His call with earnest commitment.

 

The Minor Prophets

The only thing small about the “Minor Prophets” is their size. They spoke God’s truth to His people so that we would know His ongoing love and commitment to restore our relationship with Him. The Life Change Series study guide supports the discussion. This semester we will journey through Nahum to Malachi.
Mondays | 7 pm | Adult Education Center, Room 2 | Ken Trimmer

 

Micah and 1 & 2 Peter

The Old Testament journey continues with a quick look in January at the minor prophet, Micah. Then in February the group will open 1 & 2 Peter with these questions: “Do you ever feel like a foreigner in your home town? Does it seem like you don’t know the country of your birth any longer?” There is a reason for that – we live as “exiles.” Explore what it means to live as foreigners in our own country.

MIDDLE SCHOOL WNL

WNL is a multi-sensory confirmation format that uses music, skits, games, video, and other experiential activities to explore a different faith theme each week. Students gather in small groups to reflect on their experience and make connections to their daily walk with Jesus. Periodic fellowship and servant events will further allow participants to practice living out their faith throughout out the year.  An optional dinner will be served and available from 6-6:30 pm. Friends are always welcome.

Register HERE!

2016-2017 Youth Ministry Health Form: Please turn in to Chris Schwenneker, Director of Youth Ministry.

 

HIGH SCHOOL WNL TEAM

We need student leaders!  What is WNL? Imagine crossing a youth gathering with confirmation, stuffing it with some progressive worship, and then sprinkling in some servant and fellowship events. It’s a high-energy multi-sensory evening that is designed and led by high school students. Led by high school youth? That’s right! WNL is led by high school youth who come up with skits, games, video, and other experiential activities to create a high impact learning and worship environment for our middle school students. So how can I help? If you can smile, breathe, write, eat food or act silly, we can use you to be a leader in our WNL ministry! Basically, if you can do anything, we would love your help!

 
Since you will be engaging in leadership activities, be sure to list what you are doing on resumes, college applications, and community service hours.
