Pentecost is the day (50 days after Easter) when the Holy Spirit filled the disciples and empowered them for God's ministry in the world. Read Acts Chapter 2 for the Pentecost story.
This is the longest season of the church year (usually lasting four to five months depending on the date of Easter) and the church's primary focus is on Jesus' teachings on how we are called to live our lives as his followers (always empowered to do things by God's Holy Spirit). Read More

FOOD FOR THOUGHT from the West Valley Food Pantry
It was another banner year for the West Valley Food Pantry's US Postal Food Drive! We received from the Woodland Hills Post Office approximately 35,000 pounds of food. AND we had about 250 volunteers show up to help sort and store all the donations. Many of those working in the sun that day were POP parishioners.
Thank you so much to all who helped and keep us in food during the Spring of this year! Your time and efforts were much appreciated... ESPECIALLY by the hungry and homeless in the West Valley!
With Thanks and Blessings,
Vacation Bible School Collection
We are collecting snacks for Vacation Bible School and Summer Sunday School. We can use any bulk snacks like: goldfish, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, jellied fruit, Oreos, or any other cookies or crackers. Our growing children love them all and are always hungry. Please no peanut butter or nuts. Thank You!
School Supply Collection
This year, we will be collecting school supplies for the West Valley Food Pantry children. You can help! All school supplies are needed from lunch boxes to spiral notebooks, 3 ring binders, filler lined paper, pens, pencils, markers, glue sticks, rulers, pencil pouches, etc. Please help us give these children a good start to their school year. Bring your donations to church on Sundays or to the office during the week. Thank you!
Come, Holy Spirit
Sitting tonight in the Deacon's Den, I can feel the pull and "draw-to-action" that is part and parcel to the call to diaconal service. The deacon wants to do something about anything; the deacon is called to be of service. So, the deacon often tends to jump in before they know just what's up with the situation. The deacon wants to help, and they want to help NOW!
Tom Peters, the 1980's guru of business and management, wrote in his best seller "In Search of Excellence" about British Airways testing of their new Rolls Royce jet engines and how they tested for every possible mishap that could happen. After many years of testing, they were convinced that they had thought of everything and they ordered the planes. On the maiden flight, a seagull was sucked into one of the Rolls Royce jet engines and the engine stopped instantly. Tom Peters take-away from this was that sometimes it's better to "Ready, Fire, Aim" rather than to "Ready, Aim, Fire." Read more

In 1982, Jim, Pauline, Laura and Katie walked through the doors of the Prince of Peace Episcopal Church in Woodland Hills, California. At that moment, we could have never imagined just how much they would contribute to our parish in the 13 years they were with us. Read more
