Relay for Life is a team event that celebrates cancer survivors, and raises funds for the American Cancer society research, education, prevention advocacy and patient services. It is an outdoor and overnight fundraising event where teams take turns walking or running around a track. The Prince of Peace Episcopal team will be joined by hundreds of others on June 11th for the Logan County Relay for Life. We are very blessed to be holding a prayer vigil at our campsite throughout the night.
Relay for Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.
For more information on how to support the Prince of Peace Episcopal team and the American Cancer Society, contact our team captain, Susan Emmerling at 303-880-1463.
One of the many services that Prince of Peace participates in is helping provide food for Cooperating Ministry's food bank. Donations for food are always needed and can be dropped off at Prince of Peace during Sunday worship or at the Cooperating Ministry Office at 230 N. 10th Ave. in Sterling, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
Prince of Peace participates in organized food drives before Christmas to help fill Christmas baskets for the needy, Loaves and Fishes Sunday to help keep the shelves stocked and during the Logan County Fair Parade.
New to this year, the church joined with Jubilee Ministry to build a float for the parade. As the float passed by, food donations were collected.
"For I was hungry,
and you fed me
. I tell you the truth, when you did it to one
of the least of these my brothers and sisters; you were doing it to
When we feed the hungry we are doing it for Jesus.
