Worship Sunday Mornings

9:00am – Sunday First Meal (spoken worship with Holy Communion)

10:15am – Sunday Full Meal (traditional liturgy with Holy Communion. The Band of Peace leads worship on the second Sunday of the month)

Worship is our central activity. God blesses, comforts and empowers us as we gather to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, sing His praise and celebrate the sacraments He has given us.

At Prince of Peace our worship is family oriented and rich in symbolism and diverse music. In a world filled with stress, conflict and confusion, Prince of Peace seeks to provide a place where Jesus Christ can provide healing, wholeness and meaning to our daily lives.

THE SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER

PENTECOST

Jesus’ parable about two sons who don’t do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God, such as prostitutes and tax collectors going before others into God’s kingdom. In the reading from Ezekiel the people question whether the ways of the Lord are unfair; instead they are to repent and turn to the Lord. Paul urges us to look to Christ as a model of      humility, looking to the interests of others above our own. Nourished by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world.

THE EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER

PENTECOST

In this week’s gospel reading, Jesus tells a parable of the      vineyard, an image of Israel, the prophets’ mission, and Christ’s death. For Christians, the vineyard also speaks of God’s love poured out in the blood of Christ, given to us for the forgiveness of sin. Grafted onto Christ the vine at       baptism, we are nourished with wine and bread, that we may share Christ’s sufferings and know the power of his          resurrection.

THE NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER  PENTECOST

In Isaiah we are given a vision of the great feast to come, when God will wipe away death forever. In Jesus’ parable about a great banquet, those invited do not come, so the   invitation is extended to others. In our liturgy God spreads a table before us. Even amid anxiety and hardship we rejoice in the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. With great joy we feast at the table of the Lord, and we go forth to share the wonderful invitation with others hungering and thirsting for the abundant life of God.

THE TWENTIETH SUNDAY AFTER

PENTECOST

In this week’s first reading God uses the Gentile ruler Cyrus to accomplish divine purposes. When the Pharisees try to trap Jesus, he tells them to give the emperor what belongs to him and to God what     belongs to God. To gather for worship reminds us that our ultimate allegiance is to God rather than to any earthly authority. Created in the image of God, we offer our entire selves in the service of God and for the sake of the world.

REFORMATION SUNDAY

On this day we celebrate the heart of our faith: the gospel of Christ—the good news—that makes us free! We pray that the Holy Spirit would continue to unite the church today in its proclamation and witness to the world. In the waters of baptism we are made one body; we pray for the day that all Christians will also be one at the Lord’s table.
