Christmas Eve Worship

December 24!

2:00 pm

(No Morning Service)


Thank you for visiting our website! If you have any questions about Prince of Peace, don't hesitate to contact me at poportonville@gmail.com.

I also encourage you to join us for worship on a Sunday morning. I believe you will find our church’s atmosphere warm, loving, and inviting. 

We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the first and third Sundays of each month as well as on special occasions such as Easter and Christmas Eve.

Prince of Peace is part of the larger Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The LCMS, as it is often known, is 2.5 million member church body with about 6,000 congregations. You can go to LCMS.org to learn more about our denomination.

At Prince of Peace we focus on informal uplifting worship and the teaching of the Bible as the Word of God. With that in mind, please consider the following:

1.    Participating in Sunday worship at Prince of Peace - 10:30 AM.

2.    Participating in Sunday Bible Study at Prince of Peace - 9:30 AM (Sept-May). Though the focus is for adults and older students, younger children are welcome.

3.    Enjoy a daily devotion produced by the LCMS here: https://www.lhm.org

Please feel free to utilize any of these resources to keep up on The Word! Thank you and God Bless.

His Servant,

Pastor John Kassen
