Community Outreach

At Prince of Peace, we believe in strong participation with our surrounding community.  The following programs are some examples of how we support the community in Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, and the Northwest Suburbs.  Contact the church office for more information on how to connect with these services, or to volunteer your time and talents.


Stephen Ministers

Stephen Ministers are trained and willing to provide support and encouragement to persons in need.


PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter)

PADS is held at Prince of Peace every Friday evening from October through April.


Food Drives

Food drives are held monthly on behalf of PADS, Schaumburg Pantry, and Elijah's Pantry.



A variety of scout programs, twelve-step programs, and other community-based groups meet regularly in our facilities.


Read to Learn

Read to Learn is a program in which mentors teach English as a second language.  The program is held at Prince of Peace with the help of member and non-member volunteers, and is supported financially by the congregation.






The HEROES Care Program is one way our congregation can help try to meet the needs of our service members and their families. Eight members of our Stephen Ministry have obtained additional training so they may begin to meet the practical needs immediately before, during and after deployment. 


HEROES stands for Homefront Enabling Relationships, Opportunities and Empowerment through Support. What it does is far more important than each letter’s association. Pretend a young wife of an army reservist says goodbye to her husband only to return home and find six inches of standing water in her basement. Her HEROES volunteer could help arrange for clean-up and service to her washing machine. A husband of another reservist loses his job. His car needs new tires and his wife’s check from the government is caught up in red tape. A HEROES volunteer can help find him new tires at no cost while also obtaining free babysitting while he goes job hunting. Some emotional support can also be provided.


Our Stephen Ministers have become “Homefront Support Volunteers”. Our services are available at the location of the family, especially when they live far from any military base. We provide help on the Homefront. We support the families through a long list of organizations associated with Operation Homefront. We are volunteers not associated with the military. Any help received will not go on any formal military paperwork. Continue to check the Tidings for special ways you can also support Operation Homefront. Pray for all volunteers that they can provide appropriate assistance to the service member and his or her family.
