The Church of Today
(click the title above for the podcast)
We often hear it said that “children are the church of tomorrow.” But the truth is that children are the church of today. What a great celebration of that reality we enjoyed on rally day at our Great Prince of Peace Get Together!
In the 18th chapter of Matthew, Jesus, was teaching a group of adults when he placed a child in the midst of the crowd and said “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”
What a blessing it is not only to attend church together, but to be the church in the world. Young and old, we gather for worship in order that we may be sent into the world as called and forgiven children of God.

Take some time to explore our website this week. Take notice of all of the ways we grow deep and reach out together. You may just find new ways to answer the call to be the church through the ministry and outreach we share at Prince of Peace!
