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 local apartments, schools and parks and rec departments.
Join us as we partner with residential missionaries in local apartment complexes! This vibrant ministry meets people where they are in their journey and disciples them through Bible Study, prayer, and special events. We’d love for you to join us in this vital outreach effort.
We partner with local schools to support families through parenting 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.
PARKS AND REC
