On Saturday, September 7th, join PLUM for a God's Work, Our Hands mission project, from 10am-12:30pm at Christ Lutheran Church in Duquesne. This is PLUM's 7th annual mission project working with the faith-based organization Rise Against Hunger to host a meal packaging event. We'll coordinate an assembly-line packaging of highly nutritious meals. Together we will package 13,000 meals that will be sent to school feeding programs around the world, medical clinics, child growth and development centers, elder care, and crisis and disaster centers. We'll also need a group of able-bodied people at Christ Lutheran at 9am to help unload the truck and set up the fellowship hall for the event. The actual meal packaging will take place at 10am sharp. School-aged children are welcome and encouraged to be part of this wonderful project!

POP-Out: Game Nights

We held two board game nights at the church, one in January and one in February. Both were a boatload of fun!

Visits with Santa

Santa stopped by Prince of Peace, so lots of kids and families got to take pictures with Santa Claus. Then, they got to do a few different crafts and have cookies and something to drink. It was so much fun! Thank you to everyone who came.

Pet CPR Training

We held a pet CPR training session at POP on November 17th. It was very informative. We thank both the instructor and the folks who were able to attend!

POP-Out: Oglebay Lights (Bus Trip)

We took a bus trip to see the Oglebay lights together. Thanks to those who joined us - we had a blast!

Thanksgiving Boxes

Thank you to all who donated food or gift cards for the Thanksgiving boxes. We were able to provide complete fixings for a Thanksgiving Dinner to four families.

Trunk or Treat

We had a great turnout for our Trunk or Treat event on October 21. Due to weather, half of our participating "trunks" moved inside, but a few brave souls remained outside to welcome guests. It was a lot of fun and we had over 70 members of the community dress up and trunk-or-treat with us!

Pet Blessings

Thank you to Pleasant Hills Arboretum for allowing Pastor Allyn and Prince of Peace to have our 3rd annual pet blessing service on October 7th. It turned out to be a beautiful fall morning, and we had record numbers in attendance: 28 people, 20 dogs, 3 cats, and a hermit crab. Thank you to Jefferson Memorial Cemetery, Funeral Home, and Crematory for the dog items they donated, so that we were able to put together gift bags for all who attended. Thank you to everyone who attended, you all made it a special event. Hope to see you next year!

Craft and Vendor Show (September)

We hosted a Craft and Vendor Show on Saturday, September 23rd, at the South Park Economics Building. Thank you to all of the vendors and food truck vendors, the MANY people who attended, and to ALL of the volunteers who helped! Congratulations to all the people who won the basket raffles, the wine rack raffle, and the 50/50 drawing. We hope you all had as much fun as we did. Our next craft show will be May 18th, same place, so mark you calendars now!

Beehives for Heifer International

Throughout the summer, we have explored our stewardship of creation. We began our emphasis of this care with our friend AlBee and his bee friends. We have been receiving a noisy offering weekly with the purpose of purchasing beehives through Heifer International to help not only bees
but families and communities. We sponsored 15 hives, and a matching campaign multiplied our donation by 3, resulting in 45 hives!

Back to School Drive

Thank you to all who supported our Glade Run “Back to School Drive. A trunk full of items plus gift cards were donated! Many children and families will begin the school year with the supplies they need thanks to your generosity.
