So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.Romans 12:5
If you are calling Prince of Peace your ‘church home’ we would love to officially welcome you into the community. We receive new members four times a year during worship as a way to formally recognize that God has joined us together in mission to live & love like Jesus. Fill out the form below to sign up for an upcoming new member reception.
If you would like to learn more about what God is up to at Prince of Peace and the many ways to grow in faith while becoming more connected with others, we encourage you to check out our Discover Prince of Peace class, which is always offered a few weeks before our new member welcome weekends.
We believe that Christ makes us all members of his ‘body’, and that within the ‘body of Christ’ there is a rich diversity of people and gifts. Membership at Prince of Peace is about recognizing that God has joined us together to live & love like Jesus .
We also believe that God has created us to live and work together, and that has given us the ‘Church’ as a way to join our lives into one common mission.
No matter how young or old – you belong!
At Prince of Peace, we believe that membership begins in baptism. Whether you were baptized as an infant or adult or even in a different Christian tradition – here at Prince of Peace we affirm your baptism and there is no need to be ‘re-baptised’. If you or any children in your household have not been baptized, we would love to celebrate this Sacrament with you!
We also recommend that everyone who plans to join the congregation meet with one of our pastors and check out the Discover Prince of Peace classes. It’s a great way to learn more about the community.
Yes! If you are coming to Prince of Peace from another ELCA congregation we will receive you in membership as a transfer. We would still encourage you to attend the Discover Prince of Peace classes to learn more about our congregation and ways to get involved.
If you would like to transfer your membership from another ELCA congregation to Prince of Peace simply fill out the membership form below and one of our pastors will be in touch.
*Transferring membership only applies between ELCA congregations as a matter of record keeping.
We welcome new members four times a year during worship services. On the form below you can indicate which service you plan to attend for the welcome. During worship, usually after the sermon, we will invite everyone being welcomed to come forward to be introduced to the congregation. Don’t stress – we won’t put anyone on the spot or hand you a microphone and expect you to break into song :).
After introductions are made, we will follow a liturgy in the bulletin that includes the reciting of the Apostles Creed and some prayers. After worship ends, there will be refreshments and cake in the gathering space to enjoy!
Contact the church office at 513-683-4244 if you have any questions.
If you or a family member are not yet baptized, we would love to celebrate this sacrament with you.
Please contact a pastor about becoming a member of Prince of Peace through baptisms which are held throughout the year during worship.
You are able to save your form entries and return back later to complete the form if needed.
