You are are invited to join us at Prince of Peace/Príncipe de Paz in celebrating and giving thanks to God for the marvelous gift that is ours in Jesus Christ. We celebrate how in the 16th Century the good news of the Gospel went forth from Wittenberg, throughout Europe, spreading to other continents, nations, people groups and languages as people’s lives were transformed for time and eternity. We also pause to celebrate how for 60 years God has blessed our ministry in Orlando and how He has used His people here to share Jesus’ love in word and deed from this neighborhood, into ever expanding communities, to diverse people groups and languages, transforming lives in our generation as we see ourselves as “The heart, hands, and feet of Jesus in the heart of Orlando.”
