Church Council News:
Hello everyone! We had a wonderful visit this past Sunday with the pastor candidate Emily Kuenker. Many thanks to ministry team 3 for the special fellowship treats and to Kristi and Jon Grussendorf for hosting an evening event where we could get to know Pastor Emily better. We had a great turnout!

This is the final reminder about the special meeting that will take place immediately after services this Sunday (Jan. 19). At the meeting, all voting members of the congregation will vote on two items: 1) whether to hire Pastor Emily Kuenker and 2) whether to approve her compensation package. A quorum must be present for the vote to take place, so please plan to attend! Todd Herreid will join us as a synod council representative to show the Rocky Mountain Synod's support for Prince of Peace and unity with us in this exciting time. 

See the letter below with more details about Pastor Emily Kuenker and the two events mentioned above:

Dear Prince of Peace


Welcome Pastor Meg!
On this special Sunday, voting to call Pastor Emily, we are excited to have Pastor Meg Vail from our ecumenical partner First Presbyterian lead worship and serve Holy Communion. Please join us on this very special day, and extend a warm welcome to Pastor Meg. The following is some background on Pastor Meg.

Pastor Meg Vail currently serves as the Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Logan, with ministry and outreach to children, youth, and the USU community. A Pennsylvania native, Meg arrived in Logan in March 2018 after living for ten years in Austin, Texas, where she completed her seminary education. Before she received her call to FPC, Logan, Meg ministered as a hospital chaplain with Heart Hospital of Austin. Her hobbies include skiing, puzzles, going to the movies, cooking breakfast tacos, and reading a good book. She lives with her wife, Jeannine, who is the Lead Chaplain at Ogden Regional Medical Center.

Lutheran Campus Ministry:
We will meet for snowshoeing at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 9 (location TBD that morning), followed by dinner at Karin's place. Text or talk to Karin for further details: 435-760-5350
Who? USU Faculty, Staff, & Students
What? Make blankets for Head Start, make accessible art with Jump the Moon, make journals for NICU parents, sew reusable bags, organize clothing for Cache Pride Center, and record stories with seniors
When? Monday, January 20th 2020
Why? MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service- a "day on, not a day off." The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens, communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

Please join us on Sunday, January 26th as we welcome back Rev. Catherine Tobey who will preside over our worship service.

Rev. Catherine Tobey was born and raised in Ogden, but she visited to 37 countries by age 26. On many of these trips, she spent one week to four months serving alongside missionaries and developed a deep passion for holistic service and Christian ministry. After earning degrees in Theology and Spanish from Whitworth University, she went on to Princeton Theological Seminary for an MDiv and to be trained at a church plant in urban Philadelphia. Upon returning home, she became highly involved in the local conversation around meeting community needs. An ordained Presbyterian minister, she serves as an administrator at a Christian school, chaplain at a hospital, and partner with her husband in Arcadia Guided Outdoor Education. 

Your Worship Ministry Team

PoP needs you! We will be providing a nursing home service at Williamsburg on January 26th at 3:00 p.m. and Terrace Grove at 4:15 p.m. The residents who attend (usually 2 or 3 at most) express great appreciation for these times of singing, reading scripture, and praying together. Even though Prince of Peace is currently without a pastor, we still participate when it is our turn.

If you are interested, please contact Mary Feldman 
Please join us for Holden Evening Prayer Around the World on Wednesday, February 5th at 7 p.m. at PoP.
