Member Response Requested!

Congregational Advisory Survey

The church Council is asking members to participate in a brief advisory survey in order to help inform the Council’s decision-making on an important issue.

PURPOSE/BACKGROUND     The Council would like to know your preference about possible changes in the Sunday worship and Christian Education schedules.  As you may recall, at the annual congregational meeting in January, this topic was discussed.  The rationale for making a change would be to allow a full hour for Sunday School/Education between the two services thereby enabling the Pastor to participate in this important activity.  This concept has the support of the Council and our new Pastor.

PROCEDURE     Each member of PoP may vote once in the survey by responding at the link below.  The deadline for voting is 8 am on Thursday, July 20.  The results will be shared with the congregation.

Any change that is approved will begin on Sunday, August 20, 2017, for a one-year trial period.

Good Looking PoP Refrigerator Looking for a Freezer

Can you help the refrigerator in the Fellowship Hall find a freezer to stand by its side?   Our refrigerator isn't picky... no specific requirements.... it just needs to work.  Are you doing spring cleaning at your house and wondering what to do with an "extra" freezer?  We would be grateful to anyone who can help our refrigerator find its "match".

Welcome New Office Manager, Linda Spagnola-Bragg

Prince of Peace is pleased to welcome its new office manager, Linda Spagnola-Bragg, who began on February 15.

Linda brings her talent and enthusiasm to the position as well as a wealth of administrative and fiscal experience and expertise. She is a self-described "people person" who will be a great asset to PoP.

Linda, along with her husband and two sons, reside in Roswell and they are active members of Northminster Presbyterian Church.

Linda is anxious to meet members of the congregation so please feel welcome to come by the office, Monday - Thursday to say hello. We anticipate having Linda worship with us on Sunday, February 26, which will be another opportunity to meet her.

We sincerely thank the volunteers who have been covering the office since the retirement of Marge Higgins. Thank you for a great job!
