Pastoral Care

Our pastor is available for prayer and counseling, hospital and home visits, weddings and funerals. If you would like to submit a prayer request, you can do so directly by clicking this link: Pastor Elizabeth.

In addition to the pastoral care provided by our pastor, all members and regular visitors are assigned to special ordained laypeople in the church called deacons, who provide love and listening ears, prayer support, recognize important events (birthdays and anniversaries), visit the sick, and provide occasional transportation and meals and other services.


Prayer Shawl Ministry

Participants in our prayer shawl ministry create shawls that we give as gifts to those who are sick or grieving in and outside the church, and to people when they are baptized so that they can be wrapped in the love and prayers of the church.


Wholeness Services

Three to four times a year on Monday nights, the Pastor offers an intimate service of prayer, anointing, and laying on of hands by elders known as a Wholeness Service. The service does not promise magical healing. But it provides a powerful opportunity to connect with the Holy Spirit for those who are feeling broken in body, mind, or spirit, and/or for those who want to offer special thanksgiving to God. You do not need to be a member to participate. Call the church office to find out when the next service is scheduled.


Noah’s Ark Ministry

At Prince of Peace we know that many people love their pets like children. So our pastoral care ministries include ministering to humans whose animals are in crisis. Should you have to euthanize your animal, our pastor can give your pet a final blessing and provide pastoral care to children and other family members. We also love celebrating the joy our pets bring us through an annual blessing of the animals worship service in the Spring. Contact the church office if you would like pastoral support because an animal is missing, ill, or dying.
