our life of worship

come and see...

A Holy Encounter

Philip had an encounter with Jesus that changed him. The invitation from the Lord was simple. “Follow me.” As Philip did, he sought out is friend, Nathanael. “We’ve found him!” Like so 

many of us, Nathanael was skeptical. Philip responded with a simple invitation. “Come and see…” John 1:43-46  Our invitation to you is the same. Come and see.

2 different styles

Traditional & Modern Styles of worship

Traditional Lutheran worship (11:15am)

Starting at 11:15 am every Sunday, our Traditional Lutheran Worship is liturgical and comes from the long standing history of Lutheran hymn singing, chanting, and biblical preaching. This organ led service is formed by the Lutheran Book of Worship (LBW). Join us this Sunday in the sanctuary as we sing beloved hymns of praise to our Father in heaven. We celebrate Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. 

This service is a little more formal, however, you will see people wearing everything from suit and tie or dresses, to jeans and button downs. Mostly, we’ll just be elated that you are lending your voice to our praise.

Modern Lutheran Worship (9:15am)

Starting at 9:15am every Sunday, our Modern Lutheran Worship is built upon the same foundations of traditional worship, yet it has a different sense about it. Led by our praise band and more conversational in tone, this service provides a different lens through which we glorify God. Join us this Sunday in the Life Center as we sing and give praise to God Almighty. We celebrate Communion on the 1st Sunday of each month.

This service is a little more informal. Some get dressed up, but many come comfortable in jeans or shorts.

“To gather with God's people in united adoration of the Father is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer.”

Martin Luther

it isn't about us

why we worship

It is easy to fall in the trap of thinking worship is about us. About the songs we like. The right setting. Preaching that is engaging and gives a direct benefit. Not too pushy about money. All of those preferences that everyone has. But these are all secondary. Worship is a posture of our heart towards the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Worship isn’t about you, me, or any of us. Worship is a devotion directed at the Almighty. We come each week because we need to be reminded each week that we are not God. That we need His grace, love, and presence. And, that in his great mercy, He comes again and again to our rescue. 

"Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" Galatians 6:2

At Prince of Peace we believe in community. Christ Jesus yokes us together as brothers and sisters. This is more than some nice sentiment. We take seriously our call to be together, to support one another, and to love. At Prince of Peace we mean it. Welcome to the Family!

Aspects of our Worship

God Works.
We Respond.

God’s grace is given through the waters of baptism and the gifts of bread and wine. We learn and experience the power of Jesus through the Bible. We respond in praise and a life on mission with Jesus.

Encountering Jesus in worship

Baptism

Baptism is the sacred bath that washes over us. In these storied waters we are forgiven, named, claimed, and adopted into the Lord's family. This is God at work in you and all of us..

Communion

Communion is sacrament in which we remember the meal Jesus shared with his Disciples on the night he was betrayed. We believe the bread and win become Jesus' body and blood.

Word of God

Standing under the truth of Scripture, we strive to read, understand, and apply the truth of God's word. It is the source and norm for daily life. The Word is trustworthy and true

Hymns of Praise

Music has the ability to strike straight to the heart of the believer. Communal song--whether the ancient hymns or modern praise--melts and melds hearts to Jesus.
