Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 4155 Pickle Rd., Oregon, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a number of special events to be held throughout 2010.
The mission church, started by a group of Lutherans, met for nearly two years at Christ Dunberger VFW Post in Oregon, until a church building was constructed at Pickle and Lallendorf Roads in what was a country setting at the time. The church has grown with the community and today boasts a growing congregation of 300 members.
On Sunday, Jan. 10, Prince of Peace is returning to its roots, with the 8 and 10:30 a.m. worship services and the 9:15 a.m. Sunday School to be conducted at the Dunberger Post, located at Pickle and Wynn roads. All of the charter members of the church have been invited to return for the services, which will use the order of worship from 50 years ago. A reception and open house will be held at noon at the church building. The public is invited to join the celebration.
