Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
Saint Joseph, Illinois
We are a family of believers, united to know Christ and make him known.

HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GATHERINGS take place in the youth room every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Check the "Youth" page for updates!

Demand is high, and food supplies for the pantry are often stretched.  Bring your canned and non-perishable goods to the boxes in the breezeway entrance (near the church offices).  Your donations will be a blessing to families in need in our community!

WOMEN’S COFFEE AND PRAYER:  All women are invited to gather bright and early every Wednesday morning at Geschenk Coffee Haus in downtown St. Joseph. We meet at 7am for about 45 minutes of conversation, a devotional, and prayer.  And, we enjoy a variety of delicious hot and cold coffees and teas plus breakfast items.  It’s a wonderful start to the day; Jesus, prayer, hugs, and sweet friendship. Come anytime, and bring a friend!

ALTAR FLOWER CHART:  For the next few weeks the altar flower chart will be posted in the fellowship area for those wanted to sign up for a date in 2019.  After that, it will be posted on the bulletin board next to Lori’s office.
MEALS ON WHEELS:  The Meals on Wheels sign up has been posted in the Narthex for 2019.  Prince of Peace delivers meals every Monday throughout the year.  Please consider signing up for a month!
