This Sunday Prince of Peace will be looking forward. The Council is holding our annual meeting of the Congregation as a video conference. In preparation for the meeting, we always assemble an Annual Report detailing the day-to-day business of the church, as well as the ministries that make our unique profile in the hectic Silicon Valley.
Many of us who were expected to contribute to our Annual Report were dreading the task this time. There were so many cancelled plans this year. But as each committee lead, council member, or staff person started writing our little piece we found something to be thankful for.
I was privileged to stitch all the stories together into the tale of a year in the life of Prince of Peace. To my surprise, there were many photos to assist in illustrating words of loss and hope. 2020 was not all disaster. 2021 looks to be better. This Sunday we will welcome seven new family units to Prince of Peace. There are singles, and couples, and even families with children, all being called to Prince of Peace through the worst of times. We have much to celebrate!
Please tune in to church this week at 10:00 am to meet our new members. Plan to log on to our Annual Meeting immediately after (we promise the service is under an hour. Since it is pre-recorded we can always edit!)
