Parenting single can be challenging, regardless of the circumstances that caused it to be. At our weekly Single & Parenting session, you'll connect with other single parents to learn and discuss parenting with hope-filled insights and strategies. Video sessions and group discussions will cover these topics and more:

  • Tired and Overwhelmed
  • Your Children and Your Fears
  • Rest and Comfort
  • Talking and Listening
  • Conflict and Resolution

Feel the support from developing meaningful friendships with other single parents, who, like you, are tired of hectic mornings and chaotic evenings, the kids fighting, and a never–ending to–do list. 

Single & Parenting begins on Wednesday, February 25 from 7:00–9:00pm and continues weekly through May 20. No class on March 25. The cost to participate is $20 per person. Pre–arranged childcare is available on request.

Parish Nursing is a community health nursing program, operating in churches, to promote wellness by addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of congregation members. In addition, parish nurses provide preventative services and help members access the health care system. The parish nurse ministry includes:

Health Education: Health education is offered for all ages to update individuals on current health issues/concerns. Free health literature is available upon request.

Health Counseling: Individual (confidential) and group health counseling will be provided to aid individuals in making informed decisions about their health care. Blood pressure screenings are offered every 4th weekend after each service.

Community Resources Liaison: Assistance can be provided through referrals to community health resources for all ages and needs.

Congregational Care Liaison: Coordination with all the Congregational Care Ministries is provided to better serve the needs of congregation members during illness, hospitalizations, surgeries and extended care. Please call with any needs and the appropriate ministries will be notified.

One-on-One Care


The Stephen Ministry of Prince of Peace provides a biblically sound extension of our pastors' care to individual members of our congregation and community on an ongoing basis.

Stephen Ministers are lay members of our congregation who receive 50 hours of special training to provide one-to-one Christian care, both spiritual and emotional, to those who are experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time such as: 

  • Loss of a loved one
  • Hospitalization
  • Divorce or separation
  • Spiritual crisis
  • Unemployment/job crisis
  • Terminal illness
  • Imprisonment
  • Loneliness
  • Discouragement
  • Disability
  • Rehabilitation
  • Aging
  • Pregnancy issues
  • Chronic illness or pain

Stephen Ministers meet with their “care receivers” each week to listen, pray, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support for as long as there is a need. The care provided is confidential, free, and very helpful.
