Reel to Reel

A Movie & Faith Discussion Groupreel to real

Jesus taught with parables, stories that were relatable, memorable, and make a point. The parables of our age are often movies. Our aim is to watch good movies and have great discussions where story and faith intersect.

All SaintsMichael Spurlock decides to trade in his corporate sales career to become a pastor. Unfortunately, his first assignment is to close a country church and sell the prime piece of land where it sits. He soon has a change of heart when the church starts to welcome refugees from Burma. Spurlock now finds himself working with the refugees to turn the land into a working farm to pay the church's bills.

  • The Way to Faithwaytofaith 

    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
    Romans 10:17

    God has given us the key to having an abundance of faith as evidence by this scripture. And with faith all things are possible. Meditate on the word of God and your faith will increase.

    The symbolism placed in this image is straight to the point. The lion is meant to represent our King which is Christ who watches over us. The little girl is reading a Bible, to illustrate the way to faith which is through the word of God.

    EXPAND YOUR FAITH THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD!!

  • We join with Christians around the world of all denominations in believing in God, the Father who created all, the Son, Jesus, who saves us by his death and resurrection, and the Holy Spirit who fills us with God presence. We look to the Bible, Old and New Testaments, to guide us with the message and promise of God. We practice the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.


    As Lutheran Christians we place a special emphasis on God’s grace – that is there is nothing we can do to earn God’s love and favor. Rather is spite of our sin God loves us and forgives us through Jesus. All that we do in response is our way of saying “Thank you!” to God.


    At Prince of Peace, our Purpose statement sums up our identity. “Claimed by God’s grace we seek to Welcome All, Worship Joyfully, Grow Spiritually, and Share God’s Love.”


    There is a welcome awaiting you at Prince of Peace.
    We look forward to growing and journeying together.
