Trunk or Treat | Sunday, October 25: Our “trunks” will be parked, families will drive through the lot and we will give them treats. We will need lots of families to decorate their cars and, we will seek out candy donations. Watch future e-blasts and the Prince of Peace website for more information and how to sign up/donate as it becomes available.

This school year, we are exploring the core stories of the Bible – in Spanish AND English- as families. Each week we are posting a story, family discussion questions, an activity you can do together, some fun items for kids like coloring pages and mazes, a contest to enter as a family (yes- with real prizes), and videos to share made by friendly faces from Prince of Peace/Principe de Paz. 

We are looking for our people to make videos. The only qualification is that you want to share Jesus with others. We need Spanish speakers, English speakers, families with kids, couples without kids, or whose kids are grown, singles, grandparents – anyone who will commit a few minutes to share God with our kids. 

If you would like to help us make a video to share with PoP/PdeP families as well as the rest of the community, please contact Director of Youth & Family, Eric Gerken to be placed on the schedule. He will get back with you about the text, date, and submission information.
