We were all in red to celebrate Pentecost on a lovely Sunday morning!
Come and See!
At Prince of Peace, all baptized Christians are invited to share in the Lord's Supper.
Our church building rests on a bend in Route 263, between Orkney Springs and Basye. When headed west on 263 from Mount Jackson, go past the entrance to Bryce Resort (Resort Drive) and the Orkney Springs Fire and Rescue on the left. We are on the right hand side of the road, waiting for you!

Our congregation gathers locals who grew up in Orkney Springs and Basye, newcomers who fell in love with the mountains and valleys of western Virginia, and vacationers who join us whenever they visit Bryce Resort or Shrine Mont. You are invited to join us in our worship and service in the name of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Come and see what God is doing in our community!

MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
You talked. We listened.
The council has decided to move worship services inside beginning on Sunday July 11. We will have one outdoor service in August and one in September.
Masks are required for unvaccinated worshipers. We will maintain 3 feet of separation by using every other pew. Passing of the peace will be done without physical contact- wave or flash the peace sign.
We will also return to a more normal communion distribution. The presiding minister and assisting minister will sanitize their hands before distributing the host and the wine. Wine will be served in individual cups by the assisting minister.
If the presiding minister is not comfortable using this method, we will use the communion packets that Sunday.
The new communion procedure will begin on Sunday July 18 to give the altar guild time to order the necessary elements.
Moving inside means we need more worship assistants. Please volunteer to greet,read the lessons,acolyte or serve as assisting minister. Host/hostesses are also needed for the fellowship hour. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
