"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Romans 12: 2


Welcome to my website!!  My name is Joe McGarry and I am the Pastor of  Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Kensington, Connecticut.  The video is of my latest sermon or you can click here to listen to some of my sermons.

I love my job as a pastor because I believe I am about to live out what God is calling me to do in the world.  I am a redevelopment pastor.  This means I serve both the church and the community in rebuilding a church that has struggled in recent years.  My job is to build important, life giving relationships with others. Through these relationships we learn our faith story, we connect with one another, we discover our unique gifts which enables us to live our best life.
