welcome to prince of peace Lutheran church
In the land of a 'thousand oaks,' oak trees are sort of important. They're even protected by city ordinance which forbids them to be cut down! But did you know oak trees are also important to God? Not only because they are part of His creation but also because God once used oak trees to describe His people. Now, being compared to a tree might not sound like much of a compliment, but think about what God is saying! Oak trees are powerful and majestic; they have deep and strong roots; they are beautifully adorned with leaves to provide shade and comfort for those nearby; they can withstand harsh drought conditions; and all of this happens because they thrive and grow in the presence of the sun.
This is why Prince of Peace exists: to make and strengthen "oak tree" Christians. We believe this happens when people come into the presence of the Son, Jesus Christ, who draws near to us through His Word (the Bible) and Sacraments. Here the Lord fortifies and deepens the roots of our faith. He gives us endurance and hope to withstand the harsh conditions of living in a broken world. And He beautifully adorns us with His love, equipping us to serve those nearby with love and good deeds.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope it tells you a little bit about our ministry and answers any questions you might have. Even more than that, we would love for you to visit us in person. Come meet your God and a couple of the oaks He has planted.
They will be called 'oaks of righteousness,' a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor. Isaiah 61:3
