A Message From Our Pastor

Worshiping God brings us together and unites us as a community of faith.  At the same time, people in our

congregation and in our surrounding communities have individual needs that our church seeks to address
through its many programs and opportunities to serve.

  • We seek to provide a variety of meaningful and fun opportunities for youth to discover how faith in God
    can touch their lives and the lives of others. We have a weekly children’s sermon, Sunday School classes, a youth group, two children’s choirs, a bell choir, a chimes choir, a contemporary music group for teenagers, and a confirmation class.
  • Our preschool, licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited by the National Association for
    the Education of Young Children, serves about 80 children ages 3 to 5 each year.
  • Adults can participate in our adult education class, Bible Study, sanctuary choir, bell choir, social events, be a lay assistant in a worship service, serve on one of our many committees, or participate in one of our outreach ministries designed to help others in our congregation or in our surrounding communities.
  • Many of our retired members gather together twice a month to enjoy a program and each other’s company.

Visitors are always welcome at Prince of Peace. We hope you willpastor-mark-more-recent find our congregation to be a friendly, meaningful, place to worship 

Yours in Christ,
Mark Nordskog, Pastor 

dan-pA Message from our Seminary Intern

A recent graduate of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, with a Masters of Arts in Public Leadership, I have returned to Philadelphia to complete my Masters of Divinity in Pursuit of Ordained Ministry, which is what has brought me here to Prince of Peace.   Previously,  I spent a year teaching in Hungary, through Young Adults in Global Mission,  almost four years working with autistic and developmentally disabled young adults, and many summers as a staff member at Camp Calumet.   I’m a big New England sports fan, especially of the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots.  I love following the UConn Basketball team, especially during March Madness.  I love spending time outside, especially hiking and kayaking.  I’m definitely looking exploring many of the great outdoor spaces here in the area.  I’m blessed to be here with all of you at Prince of Peace, and look forward to our work together.
