Watch the video from our Sunday morning worship service. We post a new one each week!
Over 2000 of our neighbors in Washington County are homeless youth. At Prince of Peace our vision is to “boldly serve our neighbors in ways that show them Jesus,” so we team up with HomePlate Youth Services (www.homeplateyouth.org). On the 4th Thursday of every month at First Congregational Church, 494 E Main Street, Hillsboro, OR 97123, our team serves homeless youth a hot dinner, talks with them to give encouragement, and provides access to support resources. There are many different volunteer jobs to accommodate a variety of preferences. Join us in helping our community (and having fun at the same time)! If you are interested, please sign up in advance to help us make sure we have the right number of volunteers. You can also pray for the youth we support, donate to HomePlate’s list of needs, or learn more about combatting homelessness and housing insecurity. If you have any questions, you can contact Evelyn Sixta at firstname.lastname@example.org or (971) 708-4295.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped or every good work.” Like any relationship, our connection to God is only as strong as the investment we make in it. The more time we spend with Him in His Word, the stronger our relationship grows, and when we pursue that relationship in the context of community we deepen not only our relationship with God, but also our relationships with others in our family of faith! At Prince of Peace there are three opportunities for you to connect and engage with other friends in faith during the week:

This Tuesday afternoon Bible Study is held weekly at the Home of Larry and Sandy Gross. It is also available to join virtually on ZOOM (See the Church Calendar for the Link) This opportunity is designed for those whose evenings and weekends are full, or for those who are uncomfortable being out or driving in the evening hours.

This Saturday morning ONLINE ONLY Bible Study meets every week during the year (See the Church Calendar for the Link). This opportunity is designed for anyone interested in going deeper in their relationship with God with a small community of friends. This study will meet virtually on ZOOM, Saturday mornings at 9:30am. If you would like to know more or are interested in joining this Bible Study Community please contact Pastor Dan Haugen for more information.
These Home Bible Studies are designed to be Small Group experiences, so it may be that the in-person studies quickly reach the capacity of their host homes. In that case we want to continue to expand the opportunity for Home Bible Studies at Prince of Peace. If you find that the study you are interested in has reached capacity, please contact the Church Office right away so that we can make plans to create another Small Group Bible Study in your area! If you are feeling led by God to open your home to a Home Bible Study and/or to lead a Home Bible Study we would also like to hear from you so that we can offer support, encouragement, and the means to spread the word to others who might be interested and looking for a Home Bible Study to join. We encourage you to contact the Church Office, Pastor Dan Haugen, or Family Life Minister Jeff Kranich to address any of these needs as they arise!

Our mission is to provide opportunities to build real relationships with the women of our church, grow together in faith, and create opportunities for those considering joining our church community to get to know us on a more personal level.
Annual Women’s Retreat
We sponsor a women’s retreat in the spring each year, which is a Friday-Sunday weekend experience that includes worship, Bible study, activities and more. It is appropriate for adult women of all ages and has proven to build very close relationships among the women who attend.
Annual Christmas Tea
For Christmas, we sponsor an afternoon tea which is an opportunity to come have a relaxing, fun time in the midst of the busy season. This is a favorite event with soothing Tea and light refreshments, along with multiple glittering layers of Christmas Ornaments and decorations to get you in the Holiday spirit!
Youth Group meets every Sunday at 8:45am in “The Cave” – our Youth Area downstairs in the main Church Building. It’s a great place for hanging out, for learning, growing, and sharing faith. We are currently engaged in a discussion about the validity of the Bible as God’s source of truth for the world. If you are curious about the value of Scripture and whether the Bible has the ability to stand up under close inspection then come and join us, and bring your questions!! This class is designed for everyone in Grades 7-12, and friends are always welcome! See you this Sunday at 8:45am in the PoP Youth Cave!
In Ephesians 4:1 God encourages us to lead a life that’s worthy of the calling to which we been called. In order for us to make that happen we have to know our calling, and the only way to know that is to listen to to voice of the One who is calling us – Jesus!
Confirmation provides a place where kids come together to sharpen their listening skills, learn to recognize God’s still, small voice, and strengthen and grow their faith through a two-year course of study leading to a Personal Statement of Faith and the Rite of Confirmation.
We meet weekly as a whole group for study and reflection based on the Bible, and the Six Chief Parts of Luther’s Small catechism (10 Commandments, Apostle’s Creed, The Lord’s Prayer, Holy Baptism, Confession/Absolution, Holy Communion). Classes are interactive and fun!
The classes happen weekly on Wednesday from 5:00-6:00pm, and include music, Bible study, workbook activities, and Catechism study. After 10:00am worship on Sundays or other times during the week we can be available to answer questions, provide guidance, direction, and help on any part of the Confirmation Curriculum.
