This Christmas in July Sunday - Michael and Emi (and John) Wechter's last Sunday!
Reid and Cary will be moving to their new home on Monday 7/29.  They would like help on Sunday, and Monday, 7/28-29.  The home they are moving FROM is at 1035 N. 130 W.  #104, Lexington Village Townhomes. It is around the block and down the street from PoP.  The home they are moving TO is at 1327 W. 1845 S., in the Rose Hill subdivision.  Food, beverages, and water will be provided.  Any amount of help will be GREATLY appreciated.

The proposed moving timeline is as follows:

Sunday, 7/28, 12:30 p.m. - volunteers load smaller boxes and household items into rental moving truck, and help with cleaning.  When done, Rental truck sits loaded overnight.  

Monday, 8:30 a.m. - meet at current home, then caravan with rental to load boxes and smaller items already in storage.  Caravan to new home, 1327 W 1845 S., to unload smaller items and boxes.  Large furniture and appliances will be loaded by a moving company, then transported and unloaded at new house after rental truck has been emptied of smaller items.

Cary's cell is (208) 315-0117.  If there is no answer, (Cary's hearing is not so good), please leave a voicemail message.
Big things are happening! August 5-10 marks the date for the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The theme is "We are Church." Voting members will meet to decide on a number of things that will prove to be influential in the future of the church.

New Digital Archive for PoP
We've started a digital archive of important moments in the life of the congregation.  We'd like to include photos of special services (think baptisms, confirmations, weddings, memorial services), community outreach , congregational gatherings (our famous potlucks!), and so forth. Think of it as a  chronologically organized, digital scrapbook.   Please email anything you'd like to include in the digital archive to   Printed photos (from any year) and paper invitations / announcements also welcome.  You can also give it to Karin to scan and upload.  Many thanks to each one who participates in documenting our history as a congregation.

The Blessing Box is almost empty! Non-perishable food items are urgently needed.

Congratulations to Emi and Michael Wechter on their marriage on July 13th! Beautiful wedding! Anyone who has pictures of the wedding please send to 
"Celebration" CD for sale!
July 28th  Michael and Emi will have their CD available for purchase after worship. It is $15.00 and called, "Celebration"  (yes - the song premiered at Prince of Peace is on it!).  They are going by Uniti Music as their label, and promoting music that brings people together.  About 15 of their friends are included on the CD.  Come prepared with your check book to promote the first of what we hope to be many albums by the Wechters!

Pastor Teri now enjoys the front church office. Over the rest of summer (until USU starts), you can most likely find her there on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 1:30 - 5:30, and Wednesdays 10-6 (minus a lunch break in there).  Tuesday mornings after meeting with Kara (communications intern) at 9:00 a.m., you can find Pastor Teri at Cafe Ibis until 12:30 p.m.

Pastor's Note:

It seems like we are already coming through summer with preparations in mind.  Things that need to be tended to:  moving homes (and offices), tending to weeds and gardens, prepping for the Fall curriculum, cleaning out old files. rearranging furniture, preparing for what could be around the corner . . . a new school year,  a new life, a new pastor.
You, as a church, have been preparing for a year . . . letting go of some of the past, gaining new opportunities, rediscovering your church identity, making some leadership changes, beginning a new stewardship program, and even moving offices, cleaning out old files and moving furniture around.  We’re trying to prepare for an unknown entity that seems just around the corner, but still far from sight.  Patience, faith  and preparation are needed in the waiting.
Often, we’re in a hurry to implement our plans and reach our goals, but if we’re not careful, we’ll miss the joys and lessons that result from what is happening in our lives right now, or miss assignments God has for us.  At the same time, we sometimes dread the next season of our lives because we allow anxiety and fear to rule rather than resting with patient trust and confidence in God’s provision and care.
When Jesus began his ministry, he came to that point after years of preparation. Even though he knew his purpose on earth long before his ministry began, he still went through periods of growth, development, and learning, patiently awaiting the fulfillment of his mission.  Jesus' whole life was preparation for the cross: learning the Law as a young boy, the training and physical skill in his father's carpenter shop, and those times of quiet communion, apart from others, in the early morning hours with his father; all were preparation for the fulfillment of God's plan for the redemption of mankind. If Jesus hadn't had this preparation, would he have walked out of the Garden of Gethsemane and away from the cross instead of submitting to the Father's will? Although he knew what was ahead, Jesus was obedient, sealing our pardon and our eternity.
Not much in our lives happens successfully without some form of preparation. Sometimes, like King David, we’re involved in preparation (plans for a temple) for which we never see the end result.  But the best, and most beneficial preparation, is the time we spend alone with our Father, listening, learning, growing, and preparing for the next step and our usefulness in God’s plan.
May that be so . . .  blessings on your preparations . . . even of the heart! 

Pastor Teri
