has long been a concern of Prince of Peace and there is a concern and desire in the congregation to provide Bible studies and Small Group ministries
to help members understand and apply Scripture more effectively in their lives. With the mission and worship center, Prince of Peace has been enabled to initiate several ministries to explore and deepen their personal faith.
As an outreach to the community, Dr. Chuck Block introduced a class called "Cranium Crunchers"
to help people (mainly Seniors) maintain mental acuity through a series of "brain games" (See photo on the left).
The women of Prince of Peace have had studies on Philip Yancey's "What's So Amazing About Grace," Fr. Richard Rohr's "Falling Upward," and Yancey's "The Jesus We Never Knew."
Meanwhile the men have studied John Ortberg's "If You Want to Walk on Water, You Have to Get Out of the Boat," "Falling Upward," "What's So Amazing About Grace," Ortberg's "Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them," Rabbi Harold Kushner's "How Good Do You Have to Be?" and are beginning a study on the New York Times Best-Seller, "Follow Me" by Pr. David Platt. A Tuesday night co-ed study
has completed a study on Dietrich Bonhoeffer's "Cost of Discipleship" and are currently discussing Yancey's book, "Prayer."
A "pilot" class on the Alpha Series
was conducted last Fall and an invitation to the neighborhood will be made for a Spring program of Alpha. Alpha is an outreach program begun in England and has been very successful in reaching people disillusioned with the institutional church and seeing the church in a new and positive light... Due to a busy Spring schedule the Alpha program for this Spring has been cancelled
and will resume in the Fall.
