  • It is here at Prince of Peace that my soul is filled and my discipleship practiced and challenged. I love that it is the love of Jesus binds us and is with us over the rough spots. People are genuine in their welcoming. The worship is contemporary mix of "Lutheran, Gospel, jazz". The choir is wonderful, and the music is augmented by violin, guitar, trombone etc. It is pretty difficult to stay "down" . A word, a song, a hug, a smile , a handshake are tools of the Spirit will re-charge & and make you feel "this is home." Ann Hess
