Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
Spokane, Washington

"On July 30, 1995 the congregations of Ascension Lutheran and Calvary Lutheran churches voted to consolidate into a new single church of the ELCA.  John Vaswig and Michael Sager, pastors at Calvary continued to serve the new congregation, Prince of Peace.

                                                        Now New Heaven Church

"Soon after, the congregation began a three year capital funding campaign to raise $500,000 as a down payment on a new church building in a new area.  Groundbreaking took place on Sunday, September 26, 1999 at the building site on (8441 N) Indian Trail Road.  Pastors Steven and Jaynan Egland had been called to serve the new congregation.

"Our new church opened on Easter Sunday, April 23, 2000.  With its large multi-purpose area and ample Sunday School rooms the church now hosts many community activities as well as a Christian preschool." (Link.)

Sunday services are held in the Sanctuary/multipurpose room. The wood altar area indicating a place for worship is at one side of the back wall of the multipurpose room.  On other days the multipurpose room may be used for a social event such as a bazaar with display tables at one end and round tea tables and an open serving window to the kitchen at the other end. Above the exterior door to the Sanctuary/multipurpose room entrance is this inscription: "Peace to All Who Enter Here".
