The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes declares that “for everything there is a season, and a
time for every matter under heaven.” Summer is a time for a more relaxed pace and sometimes
seeing some new sights. September often provides a return to familiar routines and a more
rapid pace for our days. If you have been away for a period this summer, you may be surprised
to see all the activity that has been happening at Prince of Peace over the last two months. A
new classroom, storage space and office area have been constructed for our preschool thanks
to the leadership of Anthony DiMauro, Lloyd Aanonsen, Jim Schaefer and a talented group of
dedicated volunteers. The parking lot has been extended and resurfaced. Several large trees
that had been infected with disease were removed before they could damage our church building.
We celebrated another successful Vacation Bible School experience led by Brian Sumerau,
Helene Welsing and many other talented youth and adult leaders, and we celebrated the joy of
the beautiful outdoor weather with our first Campfire Social. Summer has been relaxing, but it
has also been quite busy in very good ways here at Prince of Peace!
In addition to these activities members of our professional staff and ministry chairs have been
planning several events for the upcoming year. Our Band of Peace will celebrate its fifth anniversary
as they lead our worship on Holy Cross Sunday, September 14th. Our Sunday School
and Confirmation Ministries are set to begin a new year of learning on September 21st, and
Saturday Evening Worship returns at 5PM on September 27th. These are just a sampling of the
upcoming events that we have planned as our Prince of Peace as our regular programming
moves into high gear for the upcoming year. We hope that you will participate in these and
many of the other events that are being planned throughout autumn. God is doing great things
among us. I continue to be so grateful for your willingness to be a part of God’s plans through
the work we share here at Prince of Peace!
