ANNOUNCEMENTS:

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

 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!

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!

CHURCH DIRECTORY:  We will be printing an updated directory in the next month or so.  PLEASE take a look to see if you know of any changes since the last directory.  You can either email or call the office, or  leave a note in the offering plate with your update.  Thank you!
  
ELC PROJECT:  The Early Learning Center families are collecting caps/lids for a project.  Once they have a certain amount, someone will haul them to Indiana and they will get benches made with their plastics.  Please take one of the handouts on the tables in the Narthex and let’s help them reach their goal!
