The Prince of Peace Welcome or CARE MINISTRY equips members of the congregation to help meet the needs of visitors at Worship services. Care Teams serve first-time-attenders, and follow-up in making all newcomers welcomed and informed. The Care Team member is often the first friend a visitor meets in the church. Each Prince of Peace Care Ministry Team serves once a month. Care Ministry is having a major impact on community spirit at Prince of Peace by putting people in touch with God’s help and hope through prayer and personal care.
Any one interested in being a Care Minister should schedule an individual orientation with Gary Miller, Care Ministry Coordinator, by calling (703)239-2065, or join a periodic training class.
There are times in life when a person or family may need special care and greater spiritual and emotional support. Prince of Peace provides several Levels of Care to all.
