Welcome to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.

Our doors are closed.
Our mission continues.

Touched by the Gospel, we seek to be instruments 
of God’s peace for the sake of the world.

Join us.

Our world is in the midst of a pandemic.
People are unsure of what the future holds.
People are afraid of losing their jobs, 
missing connections with others, worried about getting sick, 
and running short on resources.

People are dying, often alone.

A world consumed by fear, uncertainty, and death needs us to be instruments of the peace only God can give. 
And we are here for it. 

We are here for you.

 

FAQ’s as of January 5, 2021

When will we gather in person indoors for worship again?
Here are the most recent changes we’re making for the health of our staff and community:

  • The office will be closed to the public except by individual appointment for now in compliance with the MDHHS orders.
  • Tamara will still be working in the building during regular office hours. The office hours on Friday are until noon. The rest of the staff will be working from home as much as possible.
  • Any meeting or group gathering that can be virtual is asked to use Zoom. Contact Tamara (secretary@popportage.org) or Mike (volunteer@popportage.org) for assistance in scheduling Zoom meetings.
  • Livestream worship will continue at 10:30 AM on Sundays. Participants who help lead in the sanctuary will receive more detailed information when they sign up.
  • Food distribution, which happens mainly outdoors, will continue as scheduled on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.
  • You can still pick things up or drop things off, but please call first so Tamara knows to expect you.
  • We will continue to follow state guidelines and re-open for small groups as soon as possible.

Because we know so many of you are missing the opportunity to worship together in our space, we have also decided to open the sanctuary by appointment to individuals or households who wish to come and pray quietly during the day. Our building use guidelines (don’t come if you aren’t feeling well, wear a mask at all times, etc…) still apply. Contact Tamara to schedule a time. Currently the timeslots are available during office hours.
