“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

-Matthew 25:40

Homebound Ministry

Our Homebound Ministry supports our members who are home-bound, hospitalized, or in need of someone who can provide frequent caring and compassionate support. Usually homebound individuals are unable to attend church on a regular basis. The Care Ministry team members, including the pastors, visit the homebound on a regular basis, address any needs that may be expressed, and serve Holy Communion when requested.  The team members might also take meals to the homebound when appropriate. In addition, our “Knit, Purl, Pray” small group makes shawls and prayer squares that are delivered, to let them know they are thought of, prayed for, loved, make them feel they are a part of our Prince of Peace family. For more information, please contact the Church Office at (703)451-5855

Card Ministry

This team sends cards periodically to the elderly and homebound. Cards vary and include: thinking-of-you cards, get-well cards, birthday cards (for those over 80 years old), and sympathy cards (when appropriate, depending on the circumstances). For more information, please contact the Church Office at (703)451-5855

This support group meets at least once a year for 13-weeks, provides the attendees with pathways towards healing and hope, as they deal with their individual loss.

This Support Group provides a safe place for sharing and caring while going through a very difficult period in the participants' lives. 

Divorce Care for Kids is a program designed to minister to children experiencing the challenges of being a child/youth navigating through the emotional challenges of the divorce of parents.

Prayer Ministry 

The intention that prayer is a part of the fiber of Prince of Peace is no accident. We continue to make prayer a huge part of everything that we do and plan for at Prince of Peace. We are blessed by the occasional email “Prayer Chain” and the faithful prayer warriors who make themselves available on a spontaneous basis following each of our weekend services to meet with individuals who desire prayer with a partner. Our staff prays every Tuesday for those prayer requests that come in from the weekend services. People are  not only prayed for, but also contacted later to follow-up. God has blessed this ministry with wonderful reports of answered prayer. For more information, please contact the Church Office at (703)451-5855

Holy Comforters

(January - May) Thursdays at 9am, in Prince of Peace Rm 27

This  is a service ministry that meets at Prince of Peace. It is a group of interdenominational women that meet every Thursday (from January to May) 9am-2:30pm, in room 27.  They make more than 100 quilts for Lutheran World Relief during that 5-month period. No sewing or quilting experience needed; there is a job for everyone. If you know how to tie a shoe, we can use your help. We provide sewing machines for those who know how to sew already. Bring a lunch and a friend for lots of fun and fellowship. For more information contact  Lion

Funeral Support Ministry

Our Ministry Coordinator and Pastors guide families through the planning stages after the passing of a loved one. This may include: Liturgy, Bible readings, music, organist, soloists (if requested), reception, possible eulogy, etc. The goal is to make the family feel loved, and have the funeral/memorial service/celebration of life that their loved one might have imagined. When feasible, we offer live-streaming of the service, so family across the country who might not otherwise be able to attend, can feel part of the service. We believe he focus of these services to be the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ. For more information, please contact the Church Office at (703)451-5855.
