We understand it can be intimidating to walk into a church that you've never been to before. Our members come from many different places, but we're united in faith. This family of believers wants you to feel welcome and loved.
The message of Christ crucified and risen is central to our faith, life, and worship. Come each Sunday morning for an uplifting and relevant message centered on God's love in Christ. The Word inspires us to live for Him, to love those around us, and to continue meeting to worship together.
After worship, Prince of Peace offers Sunday School for children and Bible class for others. We want to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord through His amazing Word.
So who are we?

We are a Lutheran church that proclaims forgiveness for all through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
We are a Christian church that gathers to praise God, to be strengthened by His Word, and to reach out to those around us in Christian love.

What to Expect
We understand it can be intimidating to come to worship for the first time at a church you’ve never been to before. Here's a little information about what to expect.
When you come through our doors, you will be in our gathering area. Members and guests visit before entering the sanctuary for worship.
WHERE TO SIT?
Feel free to sit wherever you’d like, whether the front or the back. If you need assistance, an usher will help you.
WHAT TO WEAR?
You’ll find worshipers at Prince of Peace wearing everything from suits to casual attire. Let's face it: Yuma can be a hot place to live! Dress comfortably, and we won't worry about what you're wearing.
WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?
Kids of all ages are welcome at Prince of Peace. We encourage parents and children to grow in faith, as they hear God's Word and sing His praise together. We know children can get fussy sometimes, and we have a Parents' Room, if you need to step out the service with your child. And just so you, we consider it a blessing to hear these young voices among us, as Jesus encourages us to "Let the little children come to [Him], and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
WHAT ARE SERVICES LIKE?
Our service includes Bible lessons, a sermon, prayers, and singing. The service is printed in the worship folder you receive, when you come in. We also project the entire service with PowerPoint, to make it as easy as possible for members and guests to participate. Services typcially last about an hour.
WHAT'S THE MUSIC LIKE?
Prince of Peace, like most Lutheran churches, is known for our use of music in worship. We follow a liturgical worship format with a variety of gospel-centered songs sung by the pastor and the congregation.
During any given service we'll also sing several hymns as a congregation, generally with organ or piano accompaniment. Most of the songs are traditional and relatively easy to sing. Lutheran worship encourages people to participate in this way with hymnals, printed bulletins, and PowerPoint projections. We try to make use of a variety of music by instrumentalists, soloists, and small groups.
WHAT ABOUT THE OFFERING?
The members of Prince of Peace have joined together to carry out the Lord’s work here and around the world. An offering plate is distributed during the worship service, but guests are not expected to participate.
