SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31 @ 11:15
Over the last many weeks there has been a lot of preparation for the upcoming special meeting on financing Prince of Peace for the next five years. Now it is time to vote on the proposal.
The Special Meeting has one voting item: the 2022-2026 Financial Plan.
CLICK HERE for a preview of the motion and video of an information session.
If you are a member, we need your participation! Congregational decisions require a quorum of 20% of the membership to vote.
If you are not a member, you are still welcome to attend to learn how Prince of Peace would like to support its ministries in the coming years.

Besides the indoor spaces we have appreciated for years, Prince of Peace is blessed with outdoor spaces that have helped us navigate this pandemic.
Last week over 40 PoPpers and friends gathered in the courtyard for an Octoberfest-themed meal.
Earlier in the day, over 100 people had gathered to celebrate the life of Loretta Welch, then mingled in the courtyard sharing memories.
The choir regularly meets on the patio for rehearsals under lights installed by the Wednesday crew.
On the Saratoga side, there is a lovely fountain surrounded by the names of loved ones.
Prince of Peace is blessed to have so many spaces that can be used to care for one another and spread God's love. The property is an asset to the community.
With the possible exception of Christmas Eve, which this year falls on a Friday, this is the busiest weekend we will have at Prince of Peace this year – and Pastor Sara, the staff, and I all want to take a moment to say thank you to the many hands and hearts that have given time their time, efforts, and thoughts to making things meaningful and enjoyable for so many people this weekend.
These are just some of the contributions volunteers are making at Prince of Peace this weekend’s events. If I listed everyone you could read this for an hour.
These volunteers are not only making this weekend’s events special for members of Prince of Peace and the guests on our campus. They are making their connection to this community stronger and more meaningful. When we give our time to a community we care for, we care for that community even more. That reality is part of what makes organized religion so very special – and why the companies we buy things from are trying to tap into that same reality. But is there really a product you can buy that substitutes for making someone feel happy and included or honoring someone’s loss? I don’t think so.
There are many, many ways to be engaged at Prince of Peace. If you are looking for ways to bring more meaning and enjoyment into your life, I cannot recommend engagement here highly enough. We worship a gracious and loving God, and this is just about the best community I’ve ever met for living that out on a day to day basis.
With love and gratitude,
There are a lot of things happening with the Prince of Peace community this month and planning now for the months to come.
So this week’s Mini is just a note to make sure you know how to join in whenever you can.
